  • "Suggested in housekeeping book that details of household recycling would have been useful."

    as we are all more eco nowadays we would have conformed. Beds weren't zipped together as requested, however this didn't affect our stay. Great location for all amenities.

  • "The kitchen is a great room to sit with lots of light."

    The kitchen could have had a coffee machine for those of us who do not drink instant. Frying pan needs replacing. Surprised to see a double bed and not a king. Although good quality bedding was provided. The Pizza and beer restaurant is very noisy in the evening, although we can sleep through noise so it didn’t disturb us.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have spoken with the owner who confirms there is a cafetiere available at the property. The frying pan has been replaced . We do advertise the property as1 double and 1 zip linkable twin bed which can be made into a king if requested Property Owner

  • "Lovely stay, fantastic location only a couple of minutes walking into Falmouth great spot for seeing the rest of Cornwall."

    The kitchen area was really nice and it was so nice to be able to access outside from that area. Lounge just ok really we didn’t use it much and could do with a little TLC. Comfy beds all clean and generally very happy with our stay.

  • "Neptune is a beautiful cottage with absolutely everything inside that you could possibly need for the perfect holiday."

    We were welcomed with fresh flowers in the kitchen/living area which was a lovely thought and we were even given dishwasher tablets and washing tablets to use. This is a very clean and comfortable place to stay and only a few minutes walk into the middle of Falmouth town centre and beautiful marina area. The only and I mean only downside to staying here is the lack of parking but we parked just at the bottom of the road in the railway car park which offers a weekly rate so not a huge problem for us.

  • "A beautiful house."

    Very well equipped and a great location. The weather was pretty bad so the house itself was a key part of the stay - loved it.

  • "Some difficulty getting into contact for entry as it was a last minute booking."

    Sykes responded and resolved this finally. Neptune cottage was perfect, excellent location, comfortable rooms, beautiful kitchen area, everything was provided. Had a lovely holiday, Falmouth a great base, especially for our late season visit (mid/late October), as you're close to shops and restaurants, lots to see locally, but equally close to magnificent coastal walks and beaches. Hardly needed the car, so would suit people arriving by train.

  • "The holiday home was absolutely fantastic!"

    A brilliant location (10 mins from wonderful beach one way and fab town/harbour 5 mins the other) a really beautiful property. Facilities in the house were great including everything you could need for a fantastic family holiday - even found body boards which our children had a fantastic time on thank you! The space was really lovely especially the gorgeous kitchen dining area, the property felt lovely, very comfy beds and having loo rolls, hand soap, dishwasher tablets etc already there was really thoughtful and well received. Just to be aware parking on street is first come first served which was a bit tricky when we arrived although able to get a space eventually and stayed put as we didn’t need the car at all. Would absolutely recommend staying there, thank you to the owners for a really fantastic base (home from home feel) to explore such a stunning area. We were sad to leave!

  • "House very lovely in a great position in the town."

    Comfortable beds and lovely house. But needs attention with cleaning. Whole house needs a deep clean. Vacuuming was obviously a very quick whip around. Ovens were dirty and microwave so filthy it was unusable. Hair and dandruff left all over red velvet chair. A shame because a lovely house.

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.
