Lapwing (2051)

Falmouth | Sleeps 2 (no children under 16) | Price per week £368 - £846

This charming little pied-a-terre is part of Falmouth's Packet Quays development, built into a hillside and enjoying stunning views over the rooftops of the apartments below to the busy harbour and Roseland peninsula beyond. Comfortably furnished and decorated with style, Lapwing is perfect for active couples, with all the amenities of the bustling sailing town of Falmouth a short stroll away. There are delightful shops and several cafes and restaurants within a few hundred yards and plenty more spread throughout the town. Sandy Gyllyngvase beach is a mile away and the coastal footpath meanders towards The Lizard. Ferries sail from the nearby Prince of Wales Pier to St Mawes, Flushing, the Cathedral City of Truro and the Helford River.

Lapwing is accessed off the High Street, with private parking opposite. There is a small but well-equipped galley kitchen at the rear of the apartment with a big open hatchway looking into the sitting/dining-room and the views beyond. French doors lead out onto a spacious balcony with a bistro-table and chairs and prettily planted pots. The bedroom is on the mezzanine level and with full-height windows at the front of the apartment making the most of the panorama, the views can be enjoyed from the comfort of bed, a wonderful way to start each day. The shower-room is also on the mezzanine level, easily accessed from the bedroom-area. Lapwing provides a delightful base from which to explore with several beautiful Cornish gardens and National Trust properties within easy driving distance. The King Harry Ferry is next to Trelissick Gardens, crossing the River Fal to the beautiful Roseland peninsula, and the dramatic cliff walks of the north coast are easily reached by car.
