5 of 5 stars Reviewed 26 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We arrived in Falmouth late Friday evening and were delighted that the house was ready and inviting. The Captain's House has all the mod-cons yet has all the traditional features giving us the impression that we were in a "homely" stately home. The house has a magnificent view of the harbour and has excellent parking facilities, located only minutes away from the centre of Falmouth town with its lovely selection of unique and eclectic shops. We were holidaying with our two teenage sons (aged 16 and 13) who loved it. We took the ferry across the River Fal to St Mawes. We walked along the coast and saw packs of seals basking in the sun and a kestrel wind-hovering. There are plenty of sandy beaches within minutes walk, ideal for surfers. We breakfasted at Fuel, had fish and chips and local ales at The Front Pub, and had gin teapots at Dolly's Tea House. The Maritime Museum is a MUST (we visited it twice). This was certainly one of our most favourite holidays and we have already...

We stayed at The Captain's House for the New Year week with a couple of friends and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The house was very comfortable with a warm decor which made us feel at home instantly. It was clean and had everything we needed (including a dishwasher!). We enjoyed cooking in the large kitchen and had lots of fun nights around the dining room table.

It was a short 5 mins walk into the centre of Falmouth where we found all the shops we needed including the best fish and chip shop we've ever been too (it was above a pub).

Overall a brilliant stay which we would highly recommend.
