This gorgeous property offers fabulously relaxing accommodation for your perfect getaway. Lovingly restored by the owners and with high ceilings and tall windows, The Old Coastguard Station is lovely and airy. Throw open the doors and listen to the sounds of the sea in the summer, or perhaps enjoy watching the stormy seas with the comfort of an open fire to snuggle in front of.
The property has two wonderful outside spaces; enjoy breakfast in the sheltered courtyard at the back of the property surrounded by sub-tropical plants, or perhaps a G&T looking over Falmouth bay and beyond in the afternoon sun.
The open plan living space and the master bedroom make the most of the fabulous sea views which are just breathtaking any time of year, hopefully your loved one will bring you breakfast in bed. The cosy twin bedroom and family bathroom overlook the pretty courtyard.
There is a great games-room to keep everyone entertained with snooker table, dart board, table-tennis, and a warming stove. The room is decorated with flags representing all the international guests. The owner provides a delicious freshly baked cream tea for your arrival baked in their apartment above, you can't get much fresher than that!
Falmouth town centre is only a short walk from the property where you will find an eclectic mix of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. There are also many ferries and boat excursions so you can enjoy exploring without having to get into the car. The lovely beaches of Castle beach and Gyllyngvase beach are a stone's throw from the property and the coastal footpath almost passes the door.
Glorious gardens at Trebah, Glendurgan and Trelissick all await exploration and the fabulous surfing beaches and dramatic coastline of the north coast are just half an hour away. The Old Coastguard Station offers a truly wonderful base from which to explore all these delights.
