  • "Great apartment within a 5-10 min walk of the centre of town."

    (There is a steep hill going back to the apartment that would be difficult for those with walking difficulties, but there is a taxi office at the bottom which will take you back for approx £3.50) The apartment is very clean, comfortable and everything seems new. There is plenty of space, 3 good sized bedrooms and an open plan living room/ dining room/ kitchen with all the equipment you need. Good wifi too which is important to many people. Only one slight suggestion for the owners. As the windows to the bedrooms open out on the ground floor directly onto the street, I think some fans would be helpful as it got very warm through the night. Highly recommended and would definitely return.

The property

Resting at the heart of the Cornish coastal town of Falmouth, you can find this well-presented contemporary apartment, Falmouth Retreat.

Resting all on the ground floor in an enviable position, this property is perfect for a variety of group needs with three bedrooms sleeping six guests!

Enter into the open-plan living space where you will be met by a stylish monochrome interior creating a simple yet stylish space to spend your evenings unwinding.

Take the couple of steps up into the plush seating area where you can snuggle up in the corner sofa and watch a film on the television, before coming together at the dining table for an evening of board games; when you're not using this space for entertainment purposes, be sure to use delight in a home-cooked meal, the sleek kitchen area housing a good range of high quality appliances including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and even both a washing machine and dishwasher for those longer stays.

Move down the hallway to discover the three bedrooms, one King size one double and one twin, all offering a lovely interior with ample space for all of your personal belongings, you can ensure that each guest has a wonderful spot to rest, the bedrooms being served by the shower room at the end of the hall where you can prepare for your day with a refreshing rinse.

At the rear of the property you can find a paved courtyard where you can sit out and make the most of the evening sun whilst dining alfresco, or begin your day here with a warming cup of coffee in hand.

The property benefits from being just a stone's throw away from all of the excitement of Falmouth's centre; with a scatter of shops to take your pick from for any last-minute ingredients whilst home cooking, as well as restaurants aplenty for when you don't feel like cooking yourself, being sure to sample one of the fresh seafood restaurants along the coast for a true taste of the seaside.

Falmouth makes a popular holiday destination all-year-round, its beautiful natural harbour being the third largest in the world, there's plenty of scenic spots to explore for a special moment with a loved one, as well as soft, sandy beaches to make the most of with sun soaking and water sports in the summer months, or a brisk stroll at any time of the year.

Be sure to explore the popular attraction of the National Maritime Museum with fifteen galleries to explore presenting maritime artefacts sure to be an engaging attraction for all ages, while Pendennis Castle built by Henry VIII is well-worth seeing too.

Explore the area via a different way with a ferry journey over to St Mawes where you can discover the natural splendour of the Roseland Peninsula, or take a trip to the botanical beauty of Trebah Garden with 26-acres of sub-tropical wonders to explore amidst a spectacular coastal backdrop.

Join the South West Coast Path for even more superb walking routes, with cycling, fishing and horse riding opportunities all around too, while Truro can be found just a scenic car journey away for those seeking adventure slightly further afield.
