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!

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

October 2018

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.

September 2018

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.

September 2018

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!

July 2018

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.

June 2018

Location and views excellent.

April 2018

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.

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.

October 2017

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!

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

August 2017

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.

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.

September 2016

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

August 2016

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.

April 2016

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.

October 2015

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

September 2015

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.

August 2015

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.

May 2013

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
