One or two were okay but most of the windows were, it seems, stuck fast. 2, The coat cupboard was blocked with at least four large bags of other people's rubbish. Lots of empty plastic containers, cardboard, and so on. 3. The parking space is very limited and any car bigger than our BMW would be hard pressed to park up. Having said that, the accommodation was clean, the beds were very comfortable, everything worked satisfactorily and we enjoyed the views. We had a very good week's break.

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.
Note: Regretfully no children under the age of eight years.
