“Awesome experience living so close to the estuary”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Had a really great week at Beach Cottage with our two young dogs, amazing location with views from all windows and lawns overlooking the estuary. We were met and shown around by very helpful local agent, flowers and tea and biscuits were much appreciated after our drive.
Very homely and well equipped and well organised house for large groups with lots of space for wet coats (thankfully rarely needed), and a spacious kitchen with ample selection of pots and pans and serving dishes of all sizes, sharp knives and a huge fridge. Loved the pictures of yachts past and present, seabirds and coastal views.
Excellent as well for a couple, we used the downstairs bedroom in the annexe which was next to the sun room. All rooms have great views but the sun room is particularly lovely in the morning as the sun rises over the bay. Private slipway added attraction for those brave enough to sail, and fishing for sea bass from the lawn!!
Lots of parking, easy access to park and float so can leave the car and take the water bus into town or enjoyable 10 min stroll to the old High Street for quirky shops, great little cafés and wide selection of restaurants, particularly around Custom Quay. Ferry to Flushing or St Mawes for fab coastal walks, fresh seafood and the beach.
A perfect home from home, we loved every minute.

“Unique secluded Location”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Just returned from a weeks holiday with a group of eight. Very private yet not isolated property, affording fantastic views of the River Penryn, with its own slipway and plenty of parking. Easy walking to Falmouth with its wide variety of bars and restaurants. Property is adjacent to Falmouth Wharves and affords a slightly quirky approach to the front door!!. We loved it here. Didnt do so well as others in the Bass catching department, so had to make do with eating out in Rick Steins restaurant!!!

“A very comfortable week in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Beach cottage was well equipped, with plenty of room for our party of 8 adults. Easy access to Falmouth, but we were happy just enjoying the views of boats passing from the garden. We are already planning a return visit.

“A truly magical spot with the best views you could hope for”
Reviewed February 24, 2013 for a stay in March 2012

We have been to Beach cottage for the past 2 years and booked again this year. We just love it. Tucked away you are totally secluded yet can walk into Falmouth easily. We fish from the garden - caught lots of seabass - amazing on the BBQ. House is great - excellent space with 2 sitting rooms, cosy feel inside and lovely outside area for warmer days. Nothing beats sitting in the garden watching the sea / sunsets. One year weather was great the next not so good but still loved it equally as so much do around a really really fantastic place .
