    “First impressions were good but a couple of things were soon discovered.”

    The description to find the property was poor.The property LOOKOUT actually is the entire complex and we stayed at number 6,however to find the entrance was far from easy ,the road name would help find it and also its on a one way street which you first find as a No entry ,so have to drive all the way round..Lots of steps to negotiate and carry luggage down,definitely not for the unfit.48 steps down to the road to get onto the high street.Once the property has been entered comes the garage bit, ...

    The description to find the property was poor.The property LOOKOUT actually is the entire complex and we stayed at number 6,however to find the entrance was far from easy ,the road name would help find it and also its on a one way street which you first find as a No entry ,so have to drive all the way round..Lots of steps to negotiate and carry luggage down,definitely not for the unfit.48 steps down to the road to get onto the high street.Once the property has been entered comes the garage bit, 4 floors,not easy to park,especially if you have a medium to large vehicle. The bays were for 2 vehicles, luckily no-one parked next to us all week,if the park was full it would be a nightmare to try to get in and out as it is very tight and requires alot of manoeuvres.The property is nice and light with good views across the estuary when stood up.The bathroom is a big letdown,the bath is marked and it would benefit a walk in shower instead. The overhead shower is nothing but a trickle with a hard plastic curtain.The majorly of the basin is taken up by the mixer taps and is near impossible to wash your face without putting water everywhere. The slow close toilet lid lives up to its name ,we were there a week and it still hadn't closed when we left!The patio is strange it's on the front with a table and 2 chairs ,however when sat down all you see is a white wall with no view whatsoever. All in all we made the best of the property, would we use it again,the jury is out.

The property

It's more about boat watching than people watching from The Lookout and from its vantage point overlooking the Falmouth Estuary, this spacious apartment really does live up to its name.

The magnificent harbour below is filled with craft from dinghys to super yachts and even the odd cruise liner or battle ship.

Just moments from the centre of bustling Falmouth, an easy stroll will bring you to boutiques, antique and curio shops and artisan delicatessens.

Bar and café culture is very much alive in the town with a dazzling array of options from cappuccinos and cream teas to cocktails and canapés.

Falmouth is a fantastic destination for families with activities for all weathers; relax on one of the three sandy beaches at Swanpool, Gyllyngvase and Maenporth or try your hand at kayaking, sailing or diving at one of the water sport centres in the town.

The Medieval Pendennis Castle, The National Maritime Museum and Ships and Castles Leisure Centre are also great options for fun on those rainy days.

A boat trip is a must when in Falmouth; departing regularly from the town quay, there are plenty of options for exploring the beautiful hidden creeks of the Carrick Roads or Helford River with stops at pretty riverside inns along the way. The Lookout is part of the prestigious Packet Quays development and standing at the bank of windows in the vast sitting room overlooking the water gives the distinct feeling of being at the bridge of a ship.

A vaulted ceiling adds to the tremendous feeling of space in this room which forms the heart of the apartment.

The kitchen enjoys a similar dramatic outlook and there are two terraces catering for both morning and evening sun, each equipped with garden furniture and colourful plants.

About the location

FALMOUTH

Mabe 3 miles; Penryn 2 miles; Truro 11 miles.

Falmouth, with its magnificent natural harbour (the third largest in the world), winding streets and beaches, will keep you occupied for hours. The town's old harbour-side pubs, excellent shopping, art gallery and stunning National Maritime Museum simply complete the picture. Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII, is Falmouth's most popular attraction, sited on its own peninsula with superb panoramic sea views. Across from Falmouth harbour is the beautiful town of St Mawes, surrounded by the rocky coves, sandy beaches and lush green countryside of the Roseland Peninsula. Go there by car (15 miles) or take the passenger ferry from Falmouth (15 minutes). For nature lovers there is the Swanpool Nature Reserve, a lagoon and site of special scientific interest teeming with a variety of wildlife. Falmouth offers such a rich variety of landscape and attractions for people of all ages, it is sure to tempt you back time and again.
