    We arrived end September and stayed for 7 days. We visited as four adults with one child & a small dog. On arrival we were shocked and disappointed to discover the parking permits are not by the cottage. I feel this needs to be clearly listed as this was a problem for one of our guests qho is aged 72. On entry the cottage is welcoming and looked clean. A few hours into our stay we discovered lots of issues that were going to impacton our stay. The table in the kitchen comfortably seats 4 not 5 and definitely not 6. The lounge is the same. Seating for 4 people. Our son had to sit on the floor!. This cottage is not suitable for 6 people. The cottage has a log stove but no wood was left even though it is advertised in the pictures. We found that really disappointing and feel that should be included in the cost. The cottage is severely short on storage. No wardrobes at all, hooks to hang clothes but nowhere near enough hangers. No full length mirror anywhere. The dvd player dosnt work which really upset my son and the games had parts missing The cottage has 2 bathrooms, however, the Shower is off the kitchen so anyone wanting a shower must walk through the kitchen, hall and upstairs. Again this was an issue for us. The back yard could be beautiful but unfortunately it needs some tlc, weeding and the bbq is filthy. We struggled to find recycling tubs and bins. Positives- there were some. The location was good. Easy access to restaurants and town. The kitchen was well equipped and the decor was nice. The permits were helpful.

The property

Set just a few minutes walk from the bustling town of Falmouth, this pretty period cottage is delightfully tucked away in a residential street above the harbour.

The cottage offers a superb blend of character with exposed stone walls and painted wooden floors alongside contemporary flair.

The sitting room is bright a welcoming, with slate floors and a wood burner stove - a comfy spot to relax with a book or enjoy one of the many games provided.

The smart kitchen is a lovely space to gather and socialise with glazed doors leading out to the neat courtyard garden.

Here you'll find a neat table and chairs where you can enjoy a glass of fizz or canape in the sunshine.

On the first floor are two comfy double bedrooms, one with sea glimpses and a bunk room ideal for children.

They share a family bathroom and there's a further shower room on the ground floor.

Tops'l Cottage is an excellent base from which to explore the golden beaches, quirky fishing villages, hidden creeks and footpaths through woodland and along the coastline.

Falmouth offers a host of attractions for every occasion.Explore the harbour or take a boat to St Mawes or to the cathedral city of Truro.

Castle, Gyllyngvase and Swanpool Beach are all nearby and perfect for a swim, surf or kayak, or get busy with a net and bucket and explore the rock pools.

Visit historic Pendennis Castle, once home to Henry VIII or enjoy a ramble along the picturesque coastal path to Helford Passage.

The sub-tropical gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan are waiting to be explored.

The Helford River with secret river inlets and the Lizard Peninsula, with scenic coves set against dramatic granite cliffs are within easy reach by car; Kynance Cove is breathtaking and will not disappoint.

With so much to see and do nearby, Tops'l Cottage is an ideal holiday cottage in a superb location.

About the location

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.
