A lovely little house with all home comforts, perfect for a stay with the dog who was right at home. Great location for walking into the town to eat and have a drink in the evening, parking not easy but expected in town centre.

Would stay again.

Well refurbished property with a comfortable feel

  • 4 of 5

Fal River Townhouse has been refurbished to a high yet comfortable standard. The marine theme suits the town and is attractive without being. The fitments and furnishings are more than adequate. The only item we lacked was a teapot!

The only things that might prove a problem for other users:1) the garage is very small. Our 2003 Focus JUST fitted. A later model would not have fitted. My partner is a very capable driver and just managed to manoeuvre the car inside. 2) the roller blind in the lounge was not well secured to the ceiling.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

My daughter was attending a course at Gorton Studios for the week, so we wanted a property that was close to Kelligrew Street and that would also allow dogs, as my husband and I were planning to walk some of the coastal footpath during the week.

It was lovely to take a stroll into town in the evening to find something to eat and as for our pasty competition we were divided, I was a fan of Ann's and my husband preferred Warren's. We will have to return soon so we can decided on an overall winner!!

The property fitted our needs perfectly, the only draw back was the parking as we have a large car which wouldn't fit into the garage but we easily over came this by parking in the street adjacent to ours.

Thank you for a lovely stay.

Top Holidays, central located / Toller Urlaub in zentraler Lage

  • 5 of 5

Very fine apartment near to the harbour.

Nice renovated with lovely details. Eveyrything was exactly as described.

Thanks for al ovely week in your apartment!

Sehr tolles Apartment in der Nähe des Hafens. Die Wohnung wurde mit viel Liebe zum Detail frisch renoviert und verfügt über alles (und mehr) was man im Urlaub so benötigt. Vom Geschirrspüler über Mikrowelle und Backofen bis hin zu Wasserkocher und Espressomaschine ist alles vorhanden. Das Apartment ist groß genug für vier Personen. Allerdings muss man mit den schmalen und steilen Treppen klar kommen, hat uns aber nicht weiter gestört. Manko sind die etwas spärlich ausgefallenen Aufhängemöglichkeiten für Klamotten und Handtücher u.a. auch im Bad. Dort fehlt auch eine Steckdose, im Schlafzimmer ist aber eine direkt am Spiegel. Leider waren auch noch einige Hundehaare an einigen Handtüchern.

Die Garage ist wirklich sehr eng, definitiv nur für einen Kleinwagen geeignet, wir waren mit einem i10 unterwegs, der so eben reingepasst hat.

Falmouth selbst bietet die perfekte Ausgangslage für eine Rundreise in Cornwall. Aber auch, wer nicht viel rum reisen möchte, hat in dem Ort und in der nahen Umgebung viele Möglichkeiten, einen unbeschwerten Urlaub zu erleben. Die Burg, die Strände und viele tolle Buchten und sehenswerte Plätze laden zum Wandern ein. Ebenso sind unzählige Cafes, Bäckereien, Restaurants und viele kleine und große Geschäfte fußläufig in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen.

Falmouth is one of Cornwall's most popular places to visit because of its unique mix of attractions, water sports, beaches, history and place to eat. The National Maritime Museum Cornwall and Pendennis Castle are both high on visitors lists of places to visit and the views from Pendennis on a fine day a truly magical. Falmouth is the sailing capital of Cornwall with its spectacular deep water natural harbour offering a haven for both cruisers and racers. Many events are held through the summer culminating in the famous Falmouth Regatta Week and associated shore side events.

The beaches at Gyllyngvase & Swanpool are coarse sand and are wonderfully sunny south facing spots. You can ride the ferry to beautiful St Mawes for the day or take a delightful trip around the estuary stopping off at either Trelissick Gardens, Malpas or Truro. There are plenty of places to eat & drink in Falmouth and recently Rick Stein has opened his Fish & Chip Restaurant & Oyster Bar at Discovery Quay adding to the superb mix across the town.

A short drive away is the Helford River. This delightful part of Cornwall includes places such as Mawnan Smith, Helford Passage, Constantine & Gweek. The area has many delights such as Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens, The Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, Goonhilly Earth and Satellite Station and The Ferry Boat Inn. Daphne du Maurier wrote her only romantic novel Frenchmans Creek about the River Helford, and who can blame her, the views really are beautiful. Glendurgan Gardens, run by the National Trust, hold a 176 year old laurel maze and the 'Giants Stride' swing is very popular with children. St Anthony-in-Meneage holds a lovely little church primarily of medieval architecture. Maenporth beach, tucked away on the westerly edge of Falmouth Bay and boasting spectacular views, is well worth a visit.
