The property

The Retreat is a wonderful two-storey property, semi-detached to the owner’s main house, resting in a quiet part of Falmouth, just a short stroll from the town centre and Swanpool Nature Reserve.Gyllyngvase Beach, one of seven with Blue Flag status in Cornwall, and Pendennis Castle are also within comfortable walking distance.

Recently refurbished, furnished to a lovely standard and benefiting from an outdoor heated swimming pool, this property is a well-situated choice for couples wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of their everyday lives and relax in the idyllic region of South Cornwall.

Prepare delicious meals in the well-appointed kitchen before stepping outside if you fancy alfresco dining on the patio for that romantic moment with your partner.

As the evening draws to a close, curl up on the electric reclining sofas with your loved one, perhaps enjoying a good film or catching up on your favourite series before retiring to the bedroom, complete with a plush king-size double for added comfort, and plenty of storage space for your belongings.

Just off the bedroom is a small study which doubles as a dressing room with plenty of natural daylight, and a spacious bathroom complete with a separate shower and bath, perfect for enjoying a soothing soak after a day of rambling the coastline.

The rear garden is a beautiful sun trap: stunningly landscaped and adorned with lush Mediterranean flora, this tranquil oasis benefits from the feel of a far-flung destination.Guests have clearly defined, exclusive spaces in the shared garden.

The Retreat benefits from its own patio with uninterrupted views of the pool and garden.

Guests also have exclusive use of the pebble beach beside the swimming pool, complete with two comfortable sun loungers, perfect for soaking up the Cornish sun.

When you need to cool off, take a dip in the water - the owners are happy for guests to use their private pool which is even heated during the summer months (June-August). To the front of the property, The Retreat’s entrance is entirely separate from the entrance to the main house and it's private courtyard, accessed via a short flight of steps, also offers a seating area for guests.The courtyard overlooks the guests’ parking space on the shared driveway for one car.

Wander the quaint streets of Falmouth to find an abundance of independent eateries or head to the coastline to discover many walks and spectacular beaches which offer a range of water sports and beach activities to suit everyone.Catch a ferry from Falmouth to St Mawes and explore the beautiful Roseland Peninsula which is truly picture-postcard worthy!Make the most of the nearby train station to discover the wonderful Capital of Truro as well as destinations further afield.

About the location


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.
