The property

Situated close to the centre of Falmouth, with incredible harbour views is this stunning, contemporary townhouse, Through The Porthole; named to reflect the combination of luxe accommodation and excellent seaviews.

This three-bedroom property has been recently refurbished to a very high standard, offering spacious and delightful accommodation for a family or small group looking to explore Falmouth and the surrounding South Cornwall coastline.

Enter the property into a spacious hallway, featuring motion sensor lighting and a handy coat rack to store your jackets, and head towards the open-plan living area.

The newly-fitted kitchen has a host of integrated amenities, including a washer/dryer, dishwasher, fridge and freezer, as well as a range of appliances to assist you with any cooking requirements.

Meals can be enjoyed at the oak dining table, whilst the sitting room has two sofas, complete with throw and cushions for added comfort, a sumptuous area where you can relax with a good book, or scan through the channels on the Smart TV.

The master bedroom has a double bed and soft carpeted floor, again boasting stunning harbour views that you can enjoy from the comfort of the bed.

You can also enjoy the integrated hanging space and charming egg shelves, along with an en-suite shower room with walk-in shower and heated towel rail, which have been thoughtfully provided by the owners for added comfort.

Upstairs are a further two bedrooms, a double and a 4' double, which is suitable for one guest, each with fantastic original fireplaces, custom made black out curtains, storage space for your belongings and incredible harbour views from the second bedroom.

The recently fitted family bathroom allows in plenty of natural light from the frosted glass window and has a shower over bath, so you have the choice of how to start each day.

Accessed through a French door in the sitting room, a few steps down is the garden, with built in bench, a lawn with garden furniture and a bar/shelf to stand drinks on as you admire the harbour views.

The centre of Falmouth, along with an impressive selection of shops, pubs, cafés, restaurants and bars are a short walk away, as is the magnificent harbour and popular attractions of Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII and the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, while Castle, Gyllyngvase and Swanpool beaches are around a mile from the property.

Catch a ferry over to St Mawes on the Roseland Heritage Coast, surrounded by rocky coves, sandy beaches and lush green countryside, as well as a 16th century castle.

Visit Swanpool and its nature reserve, a site of Special Scientific Interest with its own lagoon, and join the South West Coast Path, heading towards the Lizard Heritage Coast to visit the beautiful Trebah Gardens, Lizard Point, a rocky section of coastline that is the most southern point in England, and the incredible Kynance Cove with a beach and fascinating rock formations.

Make Through The Porthole your base to return to each day after exploring the stunning South Cornwall coast.

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. There is also a golf course. 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.
