Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, WiFi and an easy walk into Falmouth Town Centre

With panoramic views over the bustling harbour of Falmouth and across to Flushing in the distance, this second floor apartment (a lift is available) is the perfect choice for those who love activities of a nautical nature.

With the views available from Byron’s Retreat you’d be forgiven for wanting to just camp out on the balcony. Located just behind Event Square – home to the National Maritime Museum and several fantastic restaurants including Rick Stein’s Fish & Chips – the property enjoys a truly jaw dropping location that offers unrivalled vistas of Falmouth Harbour and the surrounding coastline.

The property has been built to keep these views at the centre of your experience, and features plenty of large windows so that whichever room you’re in you will always benefit from a stunning backdrop. For instance the open plan living and dining area features dual aspect windows, and doors that lead out to a wraparound balcony.

Inside you’ll find the living area set out with sofas and chairs ready to welcome you after a busy day sampling what Falmouth has to offer. In the unlikely event that you get bored of the view, there is a flatscreen TV and DVD player provided so you can keep yourself entertained. The dining table is located near to the window to make the most of the activities on the water.

The stylish kitchen comes with pale worktops and eye-catching blue cabinets, as well as the usual things you’d expect from a quality self-catering property – an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, and washer-dryer.

As well as a super king-size bed, the main bedroom enjoys the luxury of an en-suite shower room. The second bedroom features zip-link beds, allowing you to create a king-size bed, or twin singles: whatever your group requires. The family bathroom is decorated in calming neutral tones, and features a bath with shower over, WC, basin, and heated towel rail – because getting out of the shower and wrapping yourself in a warm and fluffy towel is a simple luxury that makes a lot of difference!

Byron’s Retreat offers you a golden opportunity to enjoy everything Falmouth has to offer from an exclusive development in a stunning location.

Great place, wonderful light space, fantastic balcony

  • 5 of 5

Ideal location for watching the harbour and accessing the wonderful town of Falmouth - really surprised by the amount it had to offer.

Close also to the castle, and if you fancy a treat out of town to eat you must try the Cove restaurant!

Cosy Cottage - Highly Recommended

  • 4 of 5

What a beautiful cottage! Extremely cosy and ideally suited for a family holiday. The en-suite bathroom adds a touch of luxury and it's very well decorated throughout. Flushing is a tiny village, but with the lovely five minute boat ride across to the town of Falmouth, you get the best of both worlds - a small village and a thriving town. The price at the time of year we went (just before the Easter holidays) was also very reasonable.

Such an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

The fact that we could park the car and then wander into the lovely town of Falmouth was the reason we booked this apartment, but the views were the reason we couldn't leave! We didn't turn on the TV as were always drawn to the window where we sat with a cup of tea in the morning (and a glass of wine in the evening!) and watched the comings and goings of the harbour - we need to return as there is so much to do here!

A wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for somewhere to enjoy the fresh Cornish Air, great food and friendly locals. In the evening, close the door light a fire and pour a glass of wine...and that is just what we found!! Thank you for sharing your lovely home, warm cosy and welcoming - everything we needed for a wonderful holiday.

The perfect waterside house!

  • 5 of 5

This house easily exceeded our expectations in every way. Set in a very exclusive marina development behind electric security gates we really felt as though we were VIP's! The decor was exquisite and we felt privileged to be staying there. The views across the marina basin were enchanting, we sat on the terrace for hours with a glass of fizz and our books!

What was even more amazing was the location. Although it was very peaceful and serene, we were literally a few hundred yards from the Events Square. We enjoyed fish and chips at Rick Stein's a couple of times, and The Shack is also to be recommended for great steaks.

All in all an absolutely first class house in a brilliant location. Very highly recommended!

Super central location with AMAZING views

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with Larboard. The apartment is part of the Packet Quays development right on the edge of the water. We hardly glanced at the TV for the whole week, the views across the bay were so amazing we could hardly drag ourselves away from the window or off the terrace!

Nicely furnished, it was actually even better than we were expecting, which makes a pleasant change when compared to some of the apartments we have stayed in. The bathroom had recently been fully refurbished, and the heating was very efficient, important bearing in mind we visited in December when it was pretty miserable outside.

The underground car park was very secure and close to the apartment.

The highlight of the week was watching the New Year fireworks all over the bay from the balcony and then a huge storm unfold across the water. The lighting was incredible and it is something we will remember for many years to come!

Easy booking process, could not fault the agent who was a pleasure to deal with and sent very clear instructions followed up with a call to make sure we were settled in and happy. Really first class service and we will definitely come back again.
