A charming little bolthole, easy walking distance to Falmouth town centre. A delightful retreat just perfect for couples to explore all the attractions that this amazing maritime town has to offer.

This spacious, bright property, attached to the owner's home but with its own entrance, is cleverly designed with an upside-down layout, creating a delightful open-plan upstairs living area running the whole length of the building. With views of Falmouth Harbour and the Penryn River and a half-mile walk to the centre of bustling Falmouth, it's perfect for a couple's romantic Cornish holiday. Falmouth has speciality shops, excellent dining, fabulous seafood, and a cracking live music scene. Day trip destinations nearby add to the fun.

You'll love the airy, pitch-roofed kitchen/dining/living area; loft living at its best, whether you're unleashing your inner chef and cooking up fresh locally-caught fish, savouring a candlelit dinner or having some quiet us-time on the comfy sofa. With the pleasing solidity of beautifully-textured exposed stonework and whitewashed simplicity throughout as a background for maritime artworks and natural wood furniture, the ambience inside Coachmans Loft is serene and comfortable.

Falmouth is a busy market town overlooking a wonderful natural deepwater harbour – why not enjoy fish and chips as you watch the moored yachts swing in the tide? You'll love this historic ocean sailing crossroad of South Cornwall. Quaint St Mawes across the harbour by ferry, the National Maritime Museum, coastal walks on the South West Coast Path and Pendennis Castle to visit provide plenty to do on foot. The nearest beach is 2 miles away and you'll find water activities such as kayaking or fishing trips from Falmouth. Further afield, the seal sanctuary at Gweek is within 11 miles, and sheltered Maenporth beach within 4 miles.

Great accommodation only a 15 minute walk to town & 20 minutes from the centre of Falmouth. Easily walk to nearby bar/restaurant with great views. All necessities for our stay were provided. Parking a bit haphazard but managed to get a close spot every day. Would recommend a stay here & personally would stay again.

Pros: Absolutely brilliant location - 5 minutes walk to center and the inlet just across the road. Lots of space, homely cottage feel and decor. Good range of tv channels, functional kitchen.

Well equipped and comfortable accommodation is on 2 levels with a fairly steep curved staircase between; it would not be suitable for physically disabled people. Location is about 15 - 20 minutes walking time from most pubs, restaurants and shops.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
