  • "A lovely property in a quiet and pretty location."

    The barn is warm and bright, very clean and spacious and pleasantly fitted out. The grounds are very pretty too, and well planted, and there's a great dog walk along the side of the golf course accessed by a private gate for Pennance residents. The deck has a lovely view of the Golf Course but needs a jetwash as it's very slippery as you walk out of the back door. An airer to dry washing is needed too. We really enjoyed our stay, and would recommend. Attending to the two suggestions above would make this property 5stars across the board. Thanks for a great week in Cornwall!

    Hi Thank you for your feedback and I have made note of the points raised I am glad that you enjoyed your stay...it is a special place With regards to the slipiness, the cleaners will rectify this when they are next at Maple They will also put out a clothes airer Thank you for raising these issues I am glad that you had a good time in Maple Property Owner

  • "Overall a nice property, but the long access road is problematic to negotiate due to the numerous potholes."

    The accommodation could be better if a few things were attended to…..the front door lock needs attention as it’s really difficult to open from either side. The outside table/chairs and decking area have seen better days & weren’t particularly clean. The decking was strewn with leaves on arrival (for info, the outside space wasn’t secure for our little dog). We had to buy some items to make our stay more comfortable….a kettle (the one provided was unusable with a jammed lid), a broom to clear the decking, a clothes airer as there was a washing machine but nowhere to hang wet laundry during our 2 week stay, an anti-slip mat for the bath/shower and a set of coat hangers for the hooks in the second bedroom (there’s no wardrobe). There appears to be a hornets nest in the roof adjoining the neighbouring property (they kept coming inside and we eventually worked out where they were coming from). On one occasion we had 6 inside so had to be careful about opening the windows/patio doors & kept them mostly shut, which was very uncomfortable in the hot weather & affected our enjoyment of the holiday. The wifi and phone signals are intermittent, which we knew about anyway & it didn’t particularly bother us. The allocated parking is in an area adjacent to the complex, rather than outside the property. On the plus side, the beds are comfy, it’s clean & spacious inside, in a good location with nice views of the golf course and in a sunny position if you’re lucky enough to have good weather.

    Hi Thank you for your comments The front door issue I was unaware of and will see to Also the hornets nest As to the Garden furniture being a little old - I'm trying to do my bit for conservation by not adding unnecessary items to landfill The potholed road is unfortunately out of my control as it is not owned by me, but any reasonable car should have no problem whatsoever negotiating it As to drying stands etc - unfortunately some holiday makers will take things home! Maple is in a beautiful location and I hope you enjoyed your stay... Thanks for your feedback and I will look into the matters raised Property Owner

  • "When we arrived Wasnt to pleased as it was a along a potholed track."

    It looked a nice place plenty of parking and the area was very clean with some lovely properties around. We did have job to unlock the front door as it had dropped slightly. Inside was very clean. Grand Children liked there rooms. there is some maintainence needed decking was very dirty and garden furniture past there sell by date. Our room had a nice onsuite but a small sink, beds were comfortable. The kitchen lacked a washer drier,as we had afew days of rain and struggled to dry clothes especially with 5 of us and no washing line.

  • "Just a few things that didn't spoil our stay but I feel."

    Need to be addressed.. front door lock needs attention.. property had not been aired and smelt stale, generally looks really tired and in need of a freshen up.. decking area had not been cleaned or swept.. needs replacing in my opinion.. beds really comfortable and a really good size property more than adequate for a family of 4 location was spot on lovely walks along the coastal path..

  • "Lovey location and layout of the house, but does need maintenance / modernisation."

    En-suite toilet roll holder broken, shower attachment to wall broken- needing to hold shower hose in hand. Downstairs toilet not flushing properly- noisy all the time and takes a long time to refill after flushing. Kitchen tap dripping. Small points but does let down the holiday let. .

    I am sorry that you experienced some problems. All the points that you have mentioned have now been rectified. However I am glad that you like layout of the house and it does have a wonderful position so close to the sea and wonderful walks which I hope you enjoyed. Property Owner

  • "The holiday cottage is very expensive for what it provided once I had seen it in the flesh to other one I had used on your site this year, there are not enough sufficient wardrobes in the rooms 2 and 3 or chest of drawers in the main bedroom 1."

    The small bedroom mattress is extremely uncomfortable and needs replacing completely. No tv's in the bedrooms for when guests want private time in their rooms. The settees were to low and short for the men in our group as they were both over 6ft tall. On the website it said 1 km to Falmouth, but it was 3.5 miles, I was hoping to walk into Falmouth Town in around 20 minutes, but you could only do the pond at Swan pool in that time one way. Very misleading info on your site. The weather wasn't brilliant no one faults but we were not able to do a beach sort of holiday. There were quite a few problems with the house itself, which I left a note for the lovely cleaning ladies on leaving. The plus points quite to sleep at night the week we were there.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We have taken your comments on board. Sorry to hear you found the small bedroom mattress uncomfortable mattresses are of such personal preference. The property is not advertised has having televisions in the bedrooms. It is two miles from Maple to the centre of Falmouth I am sorry we could not find where we stated it was 1km.We are pleased to hear you had a quite week. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful little holiday home with everything you will need for a little family."

    The property needs a little TLC a few things broken, dripping tap in kitchen, shower holder in master bedroom and door blinds in living room.

    Thank you for highlighting these concerns. All the points you mentioned have now been fixed. Thank you again for taking the time to leave your feedback. deal with all these points as soon as possible. Thank you again. Best wishes. Property Owner

  • "Overall a great stay in a fantastic location."

    Only downside were the settees were not very comfortable, the TV was scrambled and kept losing signal and no dvd. Other than that a really pleasant and relaxing stay.

    Hi I am really sorry that you found the sofas uncomfortable. They were purchased from IKEA where they sell as a popular model. As to TV reception, I agree that sometimes due to the weather and other factors the picture quality can vary. As you know Maple is situated on the edge of Falmouth surrounded by country side and this seems to be the price paid sometimes, although I find relatively rarely, for living amongst the beauty of Cornwall. As to the DVD, there used to be one but it went walkabout at some point. I have replaced it but sorry for that. Happy to hear you had a great stay. Property Owner

  • "The only problem was when we arrived two of the dining chairs had loose legs and were a possible accident waiting to happen."

    We tried to contact the owner through the phone number on the information sheet and left a message to let them know and had no reply. It would have been polite of them to at least acknowledge they had received this message as I made clear it was not a complaint just a warning for future booking. I did fix one of the chairs but one still is a hazard.

    Hi Thank you for letting me know about the chairs. You are quite right and the chairs have now been replaced. I apologise most sincerely. Property Owner

  • "Generally very happy with the property, cleanliness, peaceful situation and lovely view from the decking."

    The lane leading to the barn is extremely uneven and bumpy and you really need to drive into the town as there is no pavement and a long walk otherwise. We did walk through the wood and across part of the golf course but this is a very steep climb back. As a base, the situation for visiting Cornwall is excellent. Although some points are negative, nevertheless we had a very relaxing and enjoyable time.

    Thank you for your feedback. I am glad that you enjoyed the majority of your trip. The access road you mentioned is indeed an un surfaced country lane running between mature trees, which can prove a bit of an obstacle course, but over which we unfortunately have no control as it is owned by the golf course. As I have lived in Maple over a few winters now I find the obstacles no real problem to manoeuvre around, but I agree that it can be a bit bumpy if you are not used to it! Regarding your return walk back, some hills are part of the local countryside from which there are stunning views over local beaches and the sea. However I am sorry that you found them to be on the steep side. Property Owner

  • "Very Comfortable property, with simple stylish decor which had everything we needed."

    Really appreciated the extra towels! Lovely views over the golf course from the garden and lounge.We enjoyed the quiet location but were only a short walk from Swanpool and Gylly beaches and Falmouth. Would recomend to anyone who wants to leave the car on the drive and make the most of the beautiful walks.

The property

Set within a small cluster of barns with overlooking views of Falmouth Golf Course is this beautifully appointed, aesthetically pleasing wood cladded home, Maple.

This unique property enjoys a peaceful rural position, yet is within striking distance of all that Falmouth has to offer, making an exceptional base for groups of families and friends to call home as they enjoy this corner of Cornwall.

Admire the design of the hard wood cladded home, which is sure to leave a lasting impression before pushing open the front door, where a sense of style and opulence affords a warm welcome to return to at the end of each day.

Step across the tiled entrance hall to find the fully-equipped kitchen, boasting a bespoke suite complete with inset appliances and a range of modern touches, perfect for whipping up family-favourite dishes with the large wood framed window flooding natural light into the space.

To the rear of the property is the spacious living/dining room, where the patio doors are a striking element to this perfectly proportioned room, complementing the neutral tones and the stylish décor, yet the pièce de résistance are the south-west facing views.

The first-floor landing grants access to three spacious bedrooms, the master suite and en-suite shower room is notable for its captivating countryside views across the golf course, whilst bedroom two boasts another king-size bed and the third and final bedroom boasts a single bedroom and the same views as the master.

To the exterior, there is a rear decked terrace, a wonderfully sunny spot where you can enjoy the views as you dine alfresco with something tasty sizzling on the barbecue.

If you can tear yourself away from this oasis, head into Falmouth, a traditional resort town based around the third largest natural harbour in the world, home to a collection of places to eat and drink, as well as attractions and activities to suit all.

Here, you could brush up on the local history with a visit to the award-winning National Maritime Museum with an observation window to see what’s happening underwater; visit the finest fortress built by Henry VII, Pendennis Castle or marvel at the internationally renowned Trebah Garden.

Beachcombers will be delighted by the four world-class beaches that are within striking distance, providing great opportunities for surfing, snorkelling, sailing and lounging in the sunshine, or if you are feeling more adventurous, explore the Fal Estuary on one of the ferries, connecting Falmouth with St Mawes and the city of Truro.

Once you have completed all that this wonderful town has to offer, travel further afield to the quieter town of Penryn, boasting a labyrinth of olde-worlde cobbled streets to explore or spend the afternoon in the Cornish city of Truro offering something for everyone, from retail therapy to cultural and architectural delights.

With all of this and much more to enjoy, make Maple your temporary home as you explore this corner of Cornwall.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
