The Lookout (2009)

Falmouth | Sleeps 4 + cot | Price per week £495 - £1356

Wonderful panoramic views over Falmouth harbour towards the Roseland peninsula can be enjoyed from every room of this single-storey bungalow, and from the spacious terrace which runs the length of the property. Set below road level (down 24 steps) The Lookout is aptly-named and provides the most unexpected surprise – a stunning terraced garden planted with a profusion of shrubs, trees and exotic plants, complete with gazebo and summer-house. Furnished in a contemporary style and providing a superbly comfortable base, The Lookout is two minutes' stroll from the bustling town centre and all of Falmouth's shops, bars, pubs and restaurants. Sandy Gyllyngvase beach and the popular Gylly Beach Cafe are less than a mile away and Swanpool beach and nature reserve slightly further.

Inside this exceptionally well presented property the large sitting/dining-room has comfortable sofas, a pebble-effect fire, satellite television and upholstered dining chairs are perfect for long relaxing meals spent chatting and taking in the far reaching views across the water. The kitchen/breakfast-room is fully equipped and ideal for informal meals. Both bedrooms have en suite facilities, the double with a bathroom and the twin with a shower-room. This is a fantastic area for sailing and many other watersports, and tuition of all kinds is available locally. Ferries run from the nearby Prince of Wales Pier to Flushing, St Mawes, Truro and the Helford River. Gardens at Trebah, Glendurgan and Trelissick are all worth visiting, and the surfing beaches of the north coast are a short car journey away.
