The bungalow is spacious, clean and modern and in an excellent location with great views. Unfortunately being so close you will experience noise from the pub and streets below. If you have a bad back then beware the mattresses are very soft. If these things do not bother you then I would highly recommend the bungalow because it has been one best holidays we have had in Cornwall.

A very comfortable and well fitted out home. The icing on the cake were the views from all the rooms

lovely position overlooking harbour. very helpful owner. we have been going there for many years and hope to keep doing so.

The ever changing views make the property really special.

Fantastic property in a wonderful location. The view was priceless. A high standard throughout. Booking was a breeze from start to finish, and email notifications were perfectly timed with the right information always forthcoming at the right time. We loved it so much we booked it again on the day of our departure! Can’t wait to return, and heartily recommend.

Every room at The Lookout enjoys that stunning view - from first light across the water to the twinkling lights at night. Watching the coming and going of the boats is so relaxing. The terrace is a fabulous place to enjoy a cuppa, a glass of wine, or your own cream tea. The bungalow is so comfortable, and is very well equipped and maintained. Highly recommended.

The views from the property were amazing and loved waking up to the sounds of the sea and even the seagulls!! Excellent quality of furnishings and the house was so spacious. Within walking distance to all the great attractions of Falmouth and we would recommend the Sundayy night quiz at the nearby Working Boat Inn

We had a fantastic week at the Lookout. The bungalow was spotlessly clean and very welcoming. There are fabulous views from all the rooms across the harbour and beyond, which actually take your breath away when you first enter the Lookout! The layout, furnishings and decor in the property have been very well thought through to ensure that guests have a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Falmouth is a relaxed and friendly historical town with lots to explore. A perfect holiday in every way! Thank you!

The Lookout exceeded expectation, stunning location. A beautiful, clean, spacious bungalow with a fantastic outside space.

Beautiful bungalow with stunning views over the harbour.

The pictures on-line do not do this house justice. The views are superb. The house is so well appointed and conveniently located. We didn’t use the car for the whole week. A perfect place to relax.

Lovely gesture the flowers and the milk also it’s excellent to have cleaning products already in the property to keep it up to scratch over the week. This is such a lovely place I almost don’t want to share it with anyone in case I can’t get booked in again we will definitely be back

please don't tell anyone about this property - save it for us!

Although lots of comments we did enjoy our stay immensely, it’s just all the little things all of which are easily remedied were disappointing for a property costing this much.

Thanks so much for sharing your review and for your suggestions which we've passed on to the owner. Tanya, Customer Support

We had a lovely week's stay at The Lookout, I only wish we could have stayed longer! The cottage was beautiful inside and out. We had everything we needed and more, all our needs were catered for and everything was of a very high standard. It was beautifully decorated and clean throughout. Outside was just as nice as in, the garden was well maintained and secluded and the view sitting on the patio furniture towards the bay was exceptional. Although we didn't use the bbq, it was a nice touch and if we'd been there longer, we would certainly have used it. Having its own dedicated parking space was great too, as it took the headache out of finding a parking space on the busy street. We would have no hesitation in re-booking The Lookout again and recommending it to friends and family. We left a wee review in the guest book, but the space wasn't large enough to write everything in!! Thank you so much for a lovely week - we will be back.

We were more than happy with our week at the Lookout, lovely accommodation, amazing view and everything you needed for a comfortable stay. Loved opening up the bifold doors and sitting on the terrace in the sun. Ideally situated for all that Falmouth has to offer, we like walking so only used the car when we ventured further afield. Would definitely recommend a stay here and hope to come back ourselves another time.

Excellent in every way, cleanliness, comfort and equipment. The wow factor on opening the front door and seeing the view over the water is fantastic.

Very well equipped, owners have thought of everything. Excellent wifi.

This is a lovely place to come and spend a few days. It is quiet and comfortable. Plenty of space. Gardens are great to wander in and a nice summer house to relax in.

Excellent location, fantastic views and very comfortable ! Only managed a two night short stay, but will definitely look to return in future!

The property was perfect. Well equipped and very homely. Would definitely go back there

Beautiful stay with amazing views. A great place to re-charge the batteries.

5 stars

Excellent accommodation with one of the best views in Falmouth

Superb views and lication at heart of lively old quarter. And few minutes from Prince of Wales pier and ferry links

Fab house - would recommend to anyone !

Beautiful location. Excellent equipment and plenty of utensils.

A warm, comfortable and sparkling clean bungalow with outstanding views. Always something to see on the water - ideal for a winter or poor weather stay.

We're delighted you enjoyed your stay, thanks for sharing. The activities on the water are captivating - who needs TV?! It's a great spot to watch the Falmouth Classics series each June, or you may be lucky enough to see some of the fabulous Tall Ships visiting! Check out the sailing calendar at www.falmouthhaven.co.uk when planning your trip. Tanya, Customer Support

A fabulous property. Very well equipped. Stunning location, obviously!

Overall it is a good place to stay. Its comfortable and easy to manage. The location is really good with great views and relatively easy access to the centre of Falmouth.

The Lookout is a great property in a great location. I love the fact you are right next to a vibrant town and harbour but also tucked away with your own private space. Even the orientation is spot on I like the sun in the morning but not at night so that I can sit out and read in comfort and shade.

Fabulous town location with amazing views of the harbour. Peaceful garden to sit about in and near enough to all the amenities that you can leave the car parked and not get in it again until you leave!

A super bungalow - excellent position with stunning views and very close to the town. A large balcony and floor to ceiling windows just make the views better. A well stocked kitchen and good furniture make it a very comfortable and spacious place in which to stay. A, J & D.

Location and views excellent.

You should note the late night noise from the pub below.

Thanks for taking the time to review The Lookout following your second stay. As you know, Falmouth is a bustling and vibrant town with plenty of restaurants, bars and shops. The apartment's central location means that it is perfectly placed to enjoy everything on offer (including the fabulous view thanks to it's elevated position), but the popularity of the town - especially on sunny bank holiday weekend - does mean that you may possibly at times be aware of other holidaymakers and residents enjoying the area as sound can carry on a still day. It does sound as though there may have been a special event on in a nearby pub, and we're sorry if you found this disturbing. Tanya, Customer Support

This is a real Cornish gem with absolutely stunning sea views and great access to the town centre. The property is extremely well equipped, comfortably furnished and well maintained throughout. I doubt there is a more attractively positioned property for hire in Falmouth.

An ideal location, close to the town centre but quiet. Wonderful views across the River Fal. Superbly furnished, nice and warm despite weather being very cold. Bright and a great outlook.

Great bungalow, central location and very convenient for town centre and boat ferries. The property was beautifully furnished with wonderful views.

A ship watcher's paradise!

Fab location, fab views, lovely garden.

The Lookout is a lovely property with fantastic outdoor space in a great location. Everything you could want in a holiday home.

This is our third holiday at the Lookout we come back for the amazing views across the water to Flushing and the great location close to the town centre. We couldn't ask for a better place to spend our summer holiday.

Comfortable and well equipped cottage with fantastic views.

The Lookout was an ideal place for a holiday centred on Falmouth. In our case we made regular use of the reasonably priced ferries to various locations. The Lookout more than met our expectations on facilities, furnishings and equipment. We especially liked being greeted with milk in the fridge, flowers and cake on our arrival.

We liked: Location walking distance from town was welcome. Having parking space in busy area. Fantastic view of harbour. Lovely garden to spend time in with two or three areas to sit and relax take in the views. Waking to wonderful sun rises each morning.

The Outlook is an absolute gem; perfectly located to maximise the magnificent views across the bay, it is simply awe inspiring.

Splendid view any time of the day, in any weather and always something of interest in the harbour.

Lovely stay in a great cottage. The location is fantastic.

Wonderful location, close to town centre but very quiet. Great views.

The Lookout was warm and welcoming with great views of Falmouth Harbour and Estuary, the garden is a nice bonus weather permitting. It's close to the town and the amenities, and the off road parking meant' we could park the car and not worry about it for the rest of our stay.

Everything was perfect, and it was the attention to detail that put The Lookout a cut above many other properties we have stayed in.

We had a really lovely week at the lookout and would happily return

Great cottage, beautiful location with stunning views.

It is very well equipped and nicely furnished.

Cant fault it at all and will certainly be booking again.

A great "home from home", perched on a steep hillside, which allows a fantastic view across Falmouth harbour towards Pendennis Castle and the Mawes and makes for a really beautiful terraced garden.

It simply doesn't get better than this. Fantastic modern beautifully thought out house in a stunning location. We cannot wait to return. Thank you. Linda and Tony

The property exceeded our expectations from the brochure!

Will definitely return (have reserved for next year)

Location very good Great views from every room Gardens very interesting Large private patio Excellent kitchen

A beautiful house in a great location, it's close to town but feels peaceful and secluded with absolutely stunning views. It was a perfect base for a fabulous holiday.

Great views, well equipped, brilliant location.

Beautiful house & garden, magnificent views.

we hope, we can come back sometimes

A truly excellent location. We spent so much time simply sitting on the patio watching the ever changing activity in the harbour.

Fabulous.views and a very interesting and mature garden.

Stunning views across the harbour and good base for exploring the area.

Good presentation in brochure Location within town Used Classic Cottages before

the bungalow is very comfortable and welcoming with superb views over falmouth harbour towards st. mawes. always something going on. sunshine from early morning till late afternoon. the garden is very attractive and sheltered with a summerhouse and plenty of seating areas, only a short walk down a steep hill to the town for shopping and the pier for boat trips etc. we have already booked again for next year.

The Lookout has to be one of the best holiday properties we have stayed in. The quality of the accommodation and its facilities were superb and its location was an ideal base for our holiday. The gardens were well maintained and the views were a real bonus.

The Lookout is a super place to stay and explore the area round Falmouth. lots to do and see. Lovely places to eat within walking distance, lots of seafood choices. The accommodation was excellent, clean and modern. We loved the views from the terrace and the garden.

The cottage is a little gem and if a seaview is what you are looking for then look no further
