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.

February 2018

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.

June 2017

Comfortable and well equipped cottage with fantastic views.

May 2017

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.

October 2016

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.

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

October 2015

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.

October 2015

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

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.
