We were very pleased with this one bedroom flat. The location was excellent--a couple blocks from the centre of Falmouth but easy to access by car. There was a reserved parking spot which was very helpful. The apartment itself was small but very clean. It had everything we needed, including maps and magazines about Cornwall. Our hosts Jude and John also left us a welcome basket. This was by far the best holiday apartment on our trip to the UK.
We really enjoyed our stay at 5 Porth Gwel. We chose it in the first place based on the excellent reviews, and were not disappointed. The owners were helpful and accommodating throughout, and have clearly put a great deal of thought into furnishing and equipping the apartment. It was very clean and comfortable, and everything was of good quality.
In addition to the apartment itself, there were some real bonuses:
Location - easy access to town centre, shops, buses, ferries.
Balcony - great view of the town and the harbour - full sun during the day.
Welcome pack - local produce, wine, fruit and fresh herbs.
Reserved parking - a premium this close to the centre of Falmouth.
We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to others, and hope to return.
We have had a lovely stay in this perfectly formed apartment which is ideal for a couple. We are not very far from the amenities of Falmouth and beyond. We have been able to leave the car parked at the apartment and travel by boat across to do some super walks. We know Falmouth very well and this stay didn't disappoint.
The location is above the Quarry Car park on a very quiet street. Having its own parking space means that parking is not an issue. The view in the website is real, from the balcony there is a great view over the bay. The apartment is within walking distance of the high street and the main facilities in Falmouth. OK its a bit of a climb back, but its not too bad and there are plenty of places to stop off on route.
The apartment itself has been well thought out and there is everything you need for a short stay. Nice touch with wine, milk and scones, but also teabags, coffee etc. Its like staying in friend's place, so you don't have to rush out and buy essentials.
The proof of the pudding, is we would definitely stay there again when in Falmouth.
