"A Good Place for a Family Holiday"

4 of us stayed here for a week in July 2012. The house is in a great situation for local beaches in Falmouth and the Town Centre is only 10-15 minutes walk away. It has a very nice garden and views of the sea from the main bedroom. The owners are very thorough contacting us before we left to see if there were any queries and when we were there to see if there were any problems. Very much recommended for families or small groups.
