I chose this property because... “its beautifully presented with lovely water views and has easy access into the town centre.”

Picture 1 of 16. The view over Falmouth harbour from the wide balcony that runs along the front of the cottage.
Views stretch from the Penryn River across the Carrick Roads to Falmouth Docks from almost every room in this immaculately presented home-from-home; even the patio looks towards the water where hundreds of boats are moored in summer and naval ships come and go from the dockyard. Part of a converted Victorian school building in a quiet residential area, The Old School House is a few minutes' downhill walk to the shops, pubs, restaurants and bars in the lively town centre. There is a friendly local pub a short walk down the road and access to The Moor – home to several pubs and eating places – is down the steep steps of Jacob's Ladder, one of Falmouth's most iconic heritage sites.
This is a perfect holiday base, suited to both families and couples alike. The large, comfortably furnished sitting-room has patio doors leading out to the wide wrap-around balcony, from where the ever-changing activity out on the water can be enjoyed. The fully equipped kitchen/dining-area has French doors leading onto the enclosed patio, prettily planted with shrubs. Parking is handy, with two spaces in a private car park just a flight of steps up from the short terrace of cottages, where The Old School House lies at the far end. There is plenty to do in town, and several sandy beaches less than a mile away offering various watersports tuition, kayak and dinghy hire. Ferries from the nearby Prince of Wales Pier sail to Flushing, Truro, St Mawes and the beautiful Helford River, where gardens at Glendurgan and Trebah are a delight to explore.
