    The description of the location states 10 minute walk to shops, restaurants, cafes and beach. The beach is not a 10 minute walk. It took us about 20-25 mins. The signpost at the end of the high street says 10 minutes from there! The location of The Lookout is perfect for exploring Cornwall and being in the centre means we could leave the car behind when going out in the evening. Having off street parking was great too. The Lookout has everything you could need (including a hairdryer, but it's not listed so I packed mine). It was very much like being at home. There is plenty of living space and the knick knacks and pictures add to the seaside/holiday feeling. The kitchen and the living room do have a lovely views. The downsides of this property are: the damp smell in the main bedroom - we could see it on the external wall, and the kitchen had an odd smell. The kitchen is well equipped and clean though, it is just is outdated compared to the rest of the rooms. In the bathroom, the grouting around the shower needs a good clean to brighten it up. We did enjoy our week as the positives outweigh the negatives.

The property

This spacious apartment is situated overlooking the Falmouth Estuary, just a short walk from Falmouth town centre.

The Lookout is part of the prestigious Packet Quays development and standing at the bank of windows in the vast sitting room overlooking the water gives the distinct feeling of being at the bridge of a ship.

A vaulted ceiling adds to the tremendous feeling of space in this room which forms the heart of the apartment.

Accommodation is up a flight of stairs and then on one level with a well equipped kitchen and open plan living area with stunning views and window seats to enjoy them.

There is a double bedroom and a twin with a family bathroom.

Outside there is a balcony and patio area with furniture for alfresco breakfasts.

The magnificent harbour below is filled with crafts from dinghies to super yachts and even the odd cruise liner or battle ship.

Just moments from the centre of bustling Falmouth, an easy stroll will bring you to boutiques, antique and curio shops and artisan delicatessens.

Bar and café culture is very much alive in the town with a dazzling array of options from cappuccinos and cream teas to cocktails and canapés.

Falmouth is a fantastic destination for families with activities for all weathers; relax on one of the three sandy beaches at Swanpool, Gyllyngvase and Maenporth or try your hand at kayaking, sailing or diving at one of the water sport centres in the town.

The Medieval Pendennis Castle, The National Maritime Museum and Ships and Castles Leisure Centre are also great options for fun on those rainy days.

A boat trip is a must when in Falmouth; departing regularly from the town quay, there are plenty of options for exploring the beautiful hidden creeks of the Carrick Roads or Helford River with stops at pretty riverside inns along the way.

Perfectly located to enjoy Falmouth and the surrounding area of Cornwall, The Lookout is ideal for families and friends who want to watch and also explore the great outdoors.

About the location

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.
