Best ever in Falmouth

5 of 5
This year we toured around the area more than usual including trips to St Ives, Porthcurno, Trellisick, St Mawes, St Just in Roseland and Mousehole. Falmouth is an excellent centre to stay and this flat is well located and very accessible for a disabled person except for one step into the front entrance to the small block of flats. Car parking is easy with plenty of room for a large car. The property is well fitted and has all essential amenities and the owner and her family live locally and made us very welcome.
