My family and I came over from Switzerland to have a week in Cornwall. We found a great location in Gylly House, Falmouth, ideally suited to our needs. My interests are local history, archaeology. My wife, food, shopping, culture. our kids, just hanging out and having a fun week. The house is great. Excellent location close to the town and the lovely local beach. A private swimming pool, hot tub, an Aga and even a grand piano to play. My wife is a pianist ! The rooms are nice, clean and spacious, a big kitchen too. Ample parking. We took the dog, not always easy to accommodate, but here, no problem. We encountered no hitches or problems but felt if we had the owners would quickly come and remedy any fault. The perfect place for a week away in gorgeous Cornwall, cant wait to return the lovely old world charm of Gylly House. Many thanks...
