“The old stables is a lovely building in a great location.”
The furniture on the other hand is old and badly worn, lounge furniture very uncomfortable, beds are worn out, conservatory furniture falling to pieces. In the kitchen the oven, dishwasher and the toaster didn't work, and the kettle needed replacing. The lounge lighting didn't work. Most of the floor tiles are broken.

“Wi fi not working.”
Cooker too complicated no indications of temp or which knob related to which hob. Dishwasher not working One shower did not work at all. Property very near busy main road. No secure area outside for children or dogs.
“The owner told us that he has agreed to sell both properties, and it showed in that general upkeep was sadly lacking.”
The only "character" was the high vaulted ceiling - any other character was spoiled by the cheap pine furniture and the broken floor tiles in the main room and kitchen which were disguised by large mats. "Comfortable sitting and dining areas" comprised a very old leather sofa with broken springs and a garden table and chairs for dining. The conservatory furniture was very old. One piece had a hole in the cover and the innards were spilling out. The TV was dilapidated. There was a dead plant in the corner. All of us thought that the beds were cheap and uncomfortable. The patio was in a shocking state. The outside seating (wooden table and bench) hadn't been touched for years and was very unsightly. The whole patio was ugly and badly kept - filthy sink like contraptions on two sides contains rubbish and mouldy water. Uneven stones and weeds growing. A range of flower pots containing largely weeds. The walls had peeling paint and hadn't been cleaned or painted for ages. Most of the windows were dirty. We found a cockroach on the floor. The hairdryer in the downstairs bedroom came with a useless two pin plug. The cold water supply failed once. We looked at the instructions but they didn't make sense. We had to call the owner who said the instructions were out of date, and that the water went off from time to time but would come on again (which it did) but that's no good if you have a house full and people wanting showers. We have photos of most of this. Overall while the place could reasonably be described as spacious it was very disappointing and wasn't good value for money.

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.
