  • "The flat wouldn't be suitable for people with any mobility issues."

    Although the property is very central, the walk to the shops and back is quite a challenge because of the gradients.

  • "A very nice well equipped property , better equipped with tea towels , tea coffee etc than the Sykes general description would lead you to believe ."

    Good views and easy access to the town via the 111 " Jacob's ladder steps though a bit challenging at 78 yrs. Bathroom fan is very noisy and could disturb neighbours - Heated towel rail does not appear to work.. A leaving time at 9;30 /10;00 would be more reasonable than 9;00 am

  • "We loved this lovely apartment with its amazing River views."

    I definitely agree with the other reviews too. We really loved Falmouth, the walks and lovely pubs, especially ‘The Front’. This building is at the top of a lot of steps from town though. It’s very open plan too but the blackout curtains everywhere helped. Loved the decor which was fab. The balcony had incredible views. Very suitable for a couple but not a toddler.

  • "We were disappointed in that there was no door between bedroom and living room, this is not stated in the description or indicated in the photos."

    Made it difficult when one couldn't sleep and ended up sat in the kitchen so lights didn't disturb the other. The television is in a really weird position on the wall and quite far away from one sofa, yes we could have move them but that's not what we usually do in properties. A blind would be nice in the bathroom even though there is privacy glass this is not sufficient at night time, the bathroom is also quite small. You can hear noise from flat above. We had no idea Falmouth was a student town, the noise on Saturday and the following Friday was sleep disturbing. It might be central to everything but we would not book this property again, we didn't think it was value for money.

  • "Excellent apartment with views of the river from the balcony."

    Good parking. Convenient access to the town centre via Jacobs Ladder, 111 steep steps to keep you fit! We would have liked to have booked again for next year but the prices are much higher, so sadly we will be unable to return.

  • "Great location in Falmouth with easy walking access to the town and river front (although lots of steps/ hills)."

    Lovely view of the river sitting on the balcony, spacious 1st floor apartment for 2 with parking space outside. Would definitely recommend!

    Warm and comfortable.

  • "A well presented modern flat with fantastic balcony view of the harbour."

    Very near to the centre of Falmouth with a wide selection of pubs and restaurants all within walking distance. Some steep climbs in and out of town but good for working off meals! Great to have parking right by the front door. Good comfy bed!

The property

Nestled in the heart of the coastal town of Falmouth in Cornwall is River View.

This wonderful first-floor apartment sleeps two in one spacious bedroom, boasts off-road parking for one car, a rarity in this bustling town and a beautiful balcony with furniture, with views of the river, all making it an idyllic, romantic setting for a couple looking to getaway to Cornwall.

After a fun-filled day by the coast, head up to your holiday home, settle down on the plush sofa in front of the Smart TV while your partner pampers you with a romantic meal prepared in the fully-equipped kitchen; enjoy this together at the intimate dining table.

If the sun is shining, you could enjoy your meal outside or pop open a bottle of fizz to toast a memorable getaway while marvelling at the views over the river and sea; a wonderful place to watch the sun set.

Later, retire to the spacious king-size bedroom which also looks out onto the sea and is serviced by a sleek en-suite shower room.

Be sure to get some well-earned rest before another action-packed day in Cornwall.

River View lies in the centre of Falmouth just a stone’s throw away from local stores to ease your self-catered stay and pubs including Seaview Inn that are great for the nights you don't fancy cooking.

The town has plenty of eateries depending on your mood; The Meat Counter, a takeaway specialising in burgers, is the perfect pit-stop, while Cribbs Cornwall is worth visiting for its Caribbean cuisine, and for a more casual café, try Harbour View for lunch.

Other attractions in the town include Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII in the 16th-century, The National Maritime Museum Cornwall and Gyllyngvase Beach a beautiful sandy beach located just a short walk from the town centre which is perfect for a relaxing day by the sea.

You could even take a ferry over to St Mawes where you can explore the beautiful St Mawes Castle and traverse through Lamorran Gardens before spending the rest of the day at its glorious beach.

You may also want to book River View as your accommodation for local festivals including the Sea Shanty Festival, which takes place each June, and the Falmouth Oyster Festival each October, a must-do for any foodies.

Venture further afield to find the city of Truro the vibrant and historic capital of Cornwall, which is home to a wealth of attractions, including the majestic Truro Cathedral, Victoria Gardens, Royal Cornwall Museum and for adventurous guests The Celtic Tossers - Axe Throwing.

Choose River View as the setting for your next romantic retreat to Cornwall!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
