The Pierhouse is all you could want from its comfort inside and fabulous views over the water and beyond. Location perfect for shops, buses, ferries and easy walking to Restaurants and pubs in the town. Would thoroughly recommend.

This property was a recommendation from a family member. The accommodation lived up to their description. The owners have given considerable thought to what a guest may need, it is one of the most well equipment properties we have stayed in. The location is superb and the parking ideal, not that the car was needed that much as everything was in walking distance. There is very little not to like about this property.

On our arrival we had an issue. This I raised with Classic Cottages on live chat. By 10am the next morning the issue was dealt with completely to our satisfaction… thank you.

The cottage is in a superb location, with parking adjacent which is a bonus. The property is very well equipped throughout. Perfect property, perfect location. Will definitely consider again for a break.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review of The Pierhouse. We are so glad that the issue was swiftly resolved and thank you so much for letting us know so that we could assist. It is in a lovely spot and great for exploring all that Falmouth has to offer. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Sarah, Customer Support

A brilliant location - the view was superb.

Perfect location for anyone who wants a real rest. Walking easy into town & the ferries were just at the pier around the corner. The weather was perfect, just as hot as being abroad.

Lovely location, central yet quiet, can go out without the car if you wish. Car parking is tight so do follow the guidelines published by Classic Cottages.

Property and location both excellent. We are a family of four and all had a wonderful time. The teenagers enjoyed swimming from the property and we found some steps just a few steps along the road, leading into the estuary, to pop the SUP and Kayak straight into the water, enjoying trips over to Flushing for lunch and trips to the beach.

Once the car was parked just outside the back of the property, we barely used it for the week. The location is so easy to hop on a short ferry crossing over to St Mawes, Flushing and Helford. Falmouth itself has lots of fantastic shops, eateries and beaches.

The property was homely and well equipped.

We've already booked to return next year. That says it all.

We absolutely loved the cottage - it felt individually furnished, rather than a typical modern holiday-hire, with generous amounts of kitchen gear to make cooking easy. The views, especially from the sitting room bay window, are fabulous!

Well done to you and the owners!

Thank you so much for sharing your comments. It's great to read that you had the kitchen equipment that you needed to make a surely scrumptious meal. We so hope to welcome you back so that you can enjoy the views some more! Sarah, Customer Support

Beautiful location - if boats and people watching are your thing then no reason not to love this.

An excellent location to enjoy Falmouth and the coast. A very comfortable, quiet and conveniently situated house. The narrow alley to the parking place is not as fearful as some reviews would have you believe. Take your time to line the car up properly and there's no problem. We drive a Hyundai Kona and got through without a problem.

Thank you so much, your comments for The Pierhouse are a delight to read! Thank you so much for your reassurance with the parking for future guests - that is really helpful. it seems as if you had a great time exploring Falmouth and we look forward to welcoming you back so that you can carry on with your explorations. Sarah, Customer Support

The property was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was particularly well equipped. Showers were wonderful. The small things like having an abundance of hooks for hanging clothes was also appreciated.

An ideally situated property from which to explore South Cornwall.

Brilliant location, ideal for both couples or familys

Incredibly well equipped kitchen as part of a brilliant cottage in a fantastic location. Highly recommended.

A beautiful property in a stunning location that serves all your needs and is a fantastic base to explore the delights of Cornwall. Super value for money, look forward to returning in the future. The service from housekeeping and Classic Cottages can’t be bettered.

Stunning location, comfortable, well equipped, clean and tidy. Nice touch to Be given milk to make tea when we arrived!

This property is fabulous and in a lovely location. You can park the car and not use it, as there are boats close by to travel on, and the train station is not that far away. Lots of great shops in Falmouth, lots of lovely walks, and some great places to eat.

Reply from Classic Cottages

Thanks for your great review - Falmouth is really well served for public transport, and our top tip in the spring and summer months would be to jump on the ferry across to St Mawes and then up river to Truro for lunch and a spot of shoppng, followed by a beautifully scenic train ride home. Tanya, Customer Support

Fabulous location, view and outside area. Extremely comfortable and well equipped. Would love to return.

All positives-no negatives

Yet another lovely holiday at the Pierhouse! This year we enjoyed walk to wall sunshine in October! Thanks

It should be marcketed as a 2 storey flat and you have a family living above you.

Thank you for your review - we hope you enjoyed your holiday in Falmouth. The Pierhouse is a duplex apartment, occupying the ground and first floors with just one apartment above. Please do contact our Sales team who will be very happy to help you find a cottage to meet your requirements if you decide to come back to the area. Kari - Customer Support

Overall the stay at The Pierhouse was very comfortable and in an ideal location.

First class beautiful property , spotlessly clean with everything you could want for a really comfortable relaxing holiday , the dedicated parking space was a real boon to , we loved it .

A big “thank you” to the Owner for sharing this lovely property with guests. A peaceful oasis, yet close to amenities. Looking forward to returning in the near future.

An excellent cottage located on the seafront with views that are both beautiful and interesting.

The Pierhouse is in an excellent location with wonderful views and is well equipped for a lovely relaxing stay in Falmouth. There are lots to see and do just around the corner with plenty of shops, restaurants and anything else you would need, so you can just park the car and leave it until you want to go further. Boat trips that take you up to Truro or along the Helston river, or over to St Mawes are within walking distance and so is the local bus stop.

This property has a perfect location - close to all amenities but also the peace and quiet at the back of the house overlooking the beautiful harbour. Exceptionally well equipped with the kitchen and bathrooms of a high specification. The bedrooms and living room are also very comfortable with 2 TVs and wi-fi so everyone is kept happy! We would definitely return. Falmouth is a lovely town and this property is a great base.

Absolutely lovely stay. We always re-book on our last day here.

The Pierhouse is an excellent property in an outstanding location. We would thoroughly recommend to others and hope to return again.

A weekend with friends in Falmouth made doubly pleasurable by our generously equipped and welcoming harbourside quarters at The Pierhouse.

The accommodation was excellent and was ideally situated right in the centre of Falmouth . The town centre and ferry terminals were so easy to access.

Without hesitation we would recommend this property and Classic Cottages to our friends and family. The property was beautifully equipped and fantastically located. We really found nothing to criticise, and to sit and watch the comings and goings in the Harbour was a joy.

Absolutely stunning, both in location and comfort and facilities in the property. As I was packing to drive down to Cornwall, a little part of me was disappointed that we would be driving to stay somewhere less comfortable than home-I couldn't have been more wrong. The furnishing and decoration is just perfect: comfortable beds (with nicer bedding than the photographs show), an extremely well equipped kitchen with all the little bits and pieces you need-dishwasher tablets, condiments, sugar, ice in the freezer etc, as well as games, books, tourist info, wifi which worked. A real home from home, we had a wonderful stay. This is a truly wonderful property, a real home from home wit the most magnificent views. We look forward to returning! Thanks for a truly memorable holiday.

Great views and just being able to sit and watch the boats arriving and departing. Excellent location - can walk everywhere. The quality of the cottage was superb.

Location was great. Although there was scaffolding up at the property it didn't spoil our enjoyment of the house and the price for the time of year made it great value. More owners should consider renting out whilst work is carried out at a bargain price.

We were pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay despite the exterior painting work that was taking place. This work is organised by the development's management committee and only happens every few years; we're glad that we were able to let you know in advance and offer a discounted price which you took advantage of. We hope that you would consider coming back in the future to enjoy the wonderful views in their full glory. Bryony, Customer Support

Fantastic location and accomodation. A real treat to have leisurely meals so close to the sea and with a magnificent views. lovely neighbours. Deirdre Guildford

The shops are on your doorstep,but you still feel a sense of tranquillity. Beautifully,and thoughtfully furnished and equipped staying in a stately home,but a comfortable,welcoming version. Perfect...not much more that you could want!!!

The cottage, location were excellent, with the hot sunny weather we had it was great to sit out on the patio and watch the boats

The property is comfortable and well equipped. There is almost an excess of furniture and crockery inhibiting movement and accessibility. Bedrooms are small but bathrooms are fine and water pressure good. The location is excellent. Fantastic views across the harbour and 2 minutes walk to shops and restaurants. Access to Mulberry Quay from High Street is difficult for all but the smallest of vehicles. Larger cars must move to the right hand side of high street and get into position before attempting the very tight left hand turn off High Street. Several cars have been damaged by attempting access from the wrong road position.

Thanks so much for reviewing your stay at The Pierhouse - we're delighted that you enjoyed your time in Falmouth. Following our telephone conversation, we were really sorry to hear that some inconsiderate parking in a no parking area caused you some difficulties in accessing the courtyard area - we know that the turn is quite tight so recommend that drivers swing right first as you suggest, and we've included some extra information in our description to highlight the access to guests. Tanya, Customer Support

Excellent value for money.

Great location, fantastic views and very well equipped accommodation.

Very clean and comfortable holiday accommodation in a perfect setting for easy access to the town and stunning views. Would definitely hope to be able to book again in the future.

A great property with fantastic views. Everything kept up to date, a home from home.

Falmouth and The Pierhouse are a little piece of heaven. Can't wait to come back!

A beautiful home away from home with all your needs catered for and an excellent base to explore Cornwall and beyond. Highly recommended.

we have tried several Falmouth holiday cottages but always come back to the pierhouse for the last 10 years plus .it is like our second home. so jelous of the owners.

I am pleased we did not pay any more than we did

Comfortable and well equipped and a superb location that would be hard to beat.

Fantastic views and perfect location close to beaches, walks, ferries and shops but still feels private and special. A lovely place to stay and we hope to return sometime.

You'll enjoy the view over the harbour, comfy beds and everything you might need in town is right on your doorstep.

its just a perfect holiday home in a perfect location. easy access to town centre but positioned so its so it feels like your on a quiet sea front,

A wonderful location with everything in the house you could possibly need, and some.

We have stayed at The Pierhouse for the last four years. Family is our reason to be here but our continued return to this property is due to its incredible sea views, great location and the comfortable, homely feel we find here every time we visit.

Such a lovely surprise to walk in and have such lovely views. The cottage had everything we needed and our stay was very comfortable. Unfortunately we needed to see a doctor during our stay and the service at Trescobeas surgery was excellent! We had 2 Zimbabweans with us and they were very impressed with the accommodation.

Unbeatable location with matchless views from the outside dining area directly over the harbour, yet within very close walking distance of the town and ferries to St Mawes, Flushing and the Helford River. Clearly a well loved apartment with plenty of thoughtful personal touches in terms of equipment in the kitchen and elsewhere eg DAB radios.

great location but too cluttered and has a bathroom odour problem BUT great location

Reply from Classic Cottages

We were sorry to hear that you found an odour in the bathroom during your stay - on investigation the Owners discovered that the carpet had been soaked during the previous booking, and arranged for it to be replaced the following week. Thanks so much for bringing this to our attention. It's a shame the property wasn't furnished to your taste, but we think the photos show the very comfortable and homely style which we know a lot of guests love. It's great to hear that you enjoyed the location - those water views really are hard to beat! Tanya, Customer Support

amazing views, amazing property. in good weather and bad always something to see.

Highly recommend it to people who love the sea, boats and the ease of walking around Falmouth.

I would have liked to have seen a comments book at flat. First time ever in all holiday lets we've been to has there been no book. PS May look as though I'm picky, but flat was lovely. Just the view was worth 5 stars.

One of the best locations in Falmouth possibly cornwall

The Pierhouse is a beautiful house in a fantastic location!

If you want a relaxing holiday with a fantastic view then the Pierhouse is for you. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the patio watching the ferries and the yachts going in and out of the harbour. There are also glorious views of the country side. If you prefer to sit indoors you have the same views from the lovely picture window in the lounge on the first floor. It is so peaceful and yet you only have to go out of the front door, through a courtyard and you are in the town where there are lots of shops, lovely restaurants and plenty of places of interest to visit. In all - a fantastic holiday!

We have stayed there many times and it is a prime position for us. The views are lovely.

It feels like home, we absolutly love it to be there and hope to return many times again. Even when the weather is bad, it is great just sitting at the window and watch the boats and the ferry - it is alway going something on.

A very comfortable accommodation in an excellent location.

Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
