  • "Property was in a great location."

    Had everything we needed and we managed to book at the last minute as we had late cancellation on Airbnb. Very cosy cottage and pet friendly. There was parking which I was very happy about. The only small problem is that I couldn’t get no reception on my phone other than that it was a great stay and would definitely recommend.

  • "Very nice location with parking was ideal for us as visiting relatives."

    If staying for longer with more people could have done with a bigger table. Extractor fan in bathroom ran constantly, not a problem with door shut but would be using up electric. Very well equipped.

  • "We had a lovely time at Lower Deck."

    It was clean, exactly as described and the location is amazing. A five minute walk to either the beach or town centre, we could easily have not used the car the whole time we were there. We would definitely consider staying again.

  • "The flat was well equipped, comfortable, clean and tidy."

    The house keeper was very friendly and efficient as I had a problem with the hob. The location was excellent, close to the beach and Falmouth town centre.

The property

Situated at the heart of the coastal town of Falmouth in Cornwall, just a short walk from Gyllyngvase beach is the quaint holiday property, Melvill Lower Deck.

Perfect for families or small groups of friends, this home serves as an ideal base for exploring Falmouth and the surrounding areas, and is well-positioned to explore an array of nearby attractions.

Upon entering, journey down the small staircase where you will happen upon the open-plan living space, where you can cook up a storm and enjoy a delicious meal at the breakfast bar before curling up on the sofa to watch a film or two on the wall-mounted Smart TV.

Inside you will also find two quaint double bedrooms and a single bedroom where you can retreat to as the evening draws to a close.

Take a brief stroll to explore Falmouth town centre where you can sample some of the local cuisine at The Shed, enjoy the unique shops along the High Street, or a boat trip from the Old Custom House Quay to St Mawes or the Helford passage, or pay a visit to the National Maritime Museum Cornwall.

Drop down Gyllyngvase Hill to the Beach and enjoy a drink or a meal at the legendary Gylly Beach Café.

From there you can enjoy a walk round Pendennis Point, or across to Swanpool beach, enjoy a fantastic fish meal at Hooked on the Rocks, or take the coastal path to Maenporth and the Helford.

Further afield is the city of Truro, home to the grand Truro Cathedral and the lush Victoria Gardens, which has the River Kenwyn rushing through it.

You can take the train from Falmouth Town station and enjoy a scenic trip across the Perranwell Viaduct to Truro.

About the location


Mabe 3 miles; Penryn 2 miles; Truro 11 miles.

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. There is also a golf course. 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.
