River View benefits from stunning views across the water to Flushing, a decked area to the front and private garden to the rear. The master bedroom has been recently refurbished, has a Juliet balcony and breathtaking views all the way from Falmouth Docks to the Penryn River. These vistas are always changing as the tide ebbs and flows and you could while away many an hour watching the world get on with its day while enjoying a coffee or glass of wine. Downstairs the open plan living / dining area is spacious and there is a beautiful Cornish Range cooker and sliding doors open onto a decked area with rattan furniture.

From River View it is a short walk down the hill to the Greenbank Hotel, The Working Boat Pub and the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club and on into the heart of Falmouth where you can enjoy the wealth of fine restaurants and thriving pubs that this vibrant town has to offer. At the far end of town is Events Square and the National Maritime Museum where the Falmouth Oyster Festival and the shore-side activities for Falmouth Week are based, amongst others, during the year. There are also regular ferries from the Prince of Wales Pier and Custom House Quay that are well worth a day trip with destinations such as the beautiful St Mawes and the Roseland Peninsula or further up the River Fal to Trelissick Gardens, Malpas or Truro.

Falmouth is one of Cornwall's most popular places to visit because of its unique mix of attractions, water sports, beaches, history and place to eat. The National Maritime Museum Cornwall and Pendennis Castle are both high on visitors' lists of places to visit and the views from Pendennis on a fine day are truly magical. Falmouth is the sailing capital of Cornwall with its spectacular deep water natural harbour offering a haven for both cruisers and racers. Many events are held through the summer culminating in the famous Falmouth Regatta Week and associated shore side events. These events are easily reached on foot as Royal Cornwall Yacht Club is 5 minutes down the road, Falmouth High Street is a 10 minute walk away and Events Square is about 15 minutes by foot.

As a university town many events are arranged by the students including annual exhibitions of art and photographic work. There is a Sainsbury supermarket 2 minutes away by car and a large Asda 5 minutes away.

The beaches at Gyllingvase & Swanpool are coarse sand and are wonderfully sunny south facing spots. You can ride the ferry to beautiful St Mawes for the day or take a delightful trip around the estuary stopping off at either Trelissick Gardens or Smugglers Cottage for a cream tea! There are plenty of places to eat & drink in Falmouth and recently Rick Stein has opened his Fish & Chip Restaurant & Oyster Bar at Discovery Quay adding to the superb mix across the town.

A short drive away is the Helford River. This delightful part of Cornwall includes places such as Mawnan Smith, Helford Passage, Constantine & Gweek. The area has many delights such as Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens, The Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, Goonhilly Earth and Satellite Station and The Ferry Boat Inn. Daphne du Maurier wrote her only romantic novel Frenchmans Creek about the River Helford, and who can blame her, the views really are beautiful. Glendurgan Gardens, run by the National Trust, hold a 176 year old laurel maze and the 'Giants Stride' swing is very popular with children. St Anthony-in-Meneage holds a lovely little church primarily of medieval architecture. Maenporth beach, tucked away on the westerly edge of Falmouth Bay and boasting spectacular views, is well worth a visit.

River Views

River View is great base and a nice cottage. There were however a few things i would say that could do with some improvement... The whole place could have done with a deep clean. As we had 2 small children(1yr and 3yrs old), w had to give the place a once over...ie the living room... There were dog hairs and whilst the place looked clean, small kids can find (and did!) and pick up everything! The underneath of the child step/stool was particularly filthy! There is, as others noted a moth problem... Feel that this is easily fixed as you can get things to deter them.. Had to shut the fridge door shut as it doesn't close properly.. Numerous dishes had to be washed again. So other than the shortcuts, the place is a great Falmouth base and as the name suggests had great river and Cornwall views... Just needed a really good clean to be perfect!

River View, Falmouth.

The house was lovely, clean and well equipped (although it may have been a good idea to provide a vacuum cleaner given that we had two dogs with us!) The views were stunning and the location great, just a short walk into Falmouth town and well positioned to travel to lots of nearby attractions.

Reply from Jo Russell

Reply from Mrs Joanna Russell

Dear Mrs Hillsdon, My name is Jo Russell and I am the owner of 12 Riverview in Falmouth. We live overseas and our cottage is managed by our housekeeping service. I was so sad to see that you were not satisfied with the standard of cleanliness in one of the bathrooms of the cottage as we pride ourselves on having a high standard. Unfortunately our housekeeper was away for the period of your booking and we had a temporary cleaner. I just wanted to inform you that the matter has been acted upon and she will not be cleaning for us again. I do hope this didn't spoil your stay in beautiful Falmouth and that you had a lovely holiday. With our best wishes, Jo and Tom Russell. Sent from my iPad

Lovel house, couldn't be better

beautiful house, really lovely place to stay. The only thing I would say that needs attention is that I pulled up some of the bind weed in the front garden - someone should dig it up properly, all the new little plants were getting choked. Unless it is looked after the lovely things someone has planted will die. Please consider putting a new cafe/restaurant in Falmouth in your notes for people renting the house. It is The Kitchen, Cobbled Yard, Falmouth, fabulous food, really nice ambiance, relaxed and inexpensive. You can also sit outside in the quiet cobbled yard in the sun. Ten minutes walk from the house.
