This is a great location with wonderful views across the river to Flushing and a superb master bedroom with Juliet balcony which really makes the best of the magnificent view.

The master bedroom has been recently refurbished, has a Juliet balcony and breathtaking views all the way from Falmouth Docks to the Penryn River.

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.

Property Location


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 Gyllyngvase & 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.

Riverview

The house is very nice and well equipped, it has an original aga style oven which was amazing and something I have never seen before. The house had lovely views over the estuary. Lots of sleeping space and comfortable beds. We took our bikes and could cycle to Falmouth, the castle, the beach and St Mawes. The steps to the house are not easy with the bikes and are a consideration before booking. Also no parking was a nightmare when we arrived after 9pm. One end of the road wasnA?t very nice at all, so we avoided that end and always went up the road. Falmouth is really nice with loads to do and see for the family.

A lovely stay at this property

We really enjoyed our stay at River view. Unbeatable views overlooking the Fal estuary. The property is well decorated and maintained throughout with excellent facilities. The only drawback was the steps up from the road and the little path leading to the property which had no barrier of any kind at the side on to the road. As it was about 5 feet high we could envisage a problem with small children falling or difficulties for anyone with mobility problems. The property is about 15 minutes from the shops and centre of Falmouth which is handy but an up hill slog on the way back. Having said that we would be happy to return.

From the Owner:
Dear Bryan, Thank you for your kind review and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. Your comments about the path are very valid and we have made requests to Cornwall council to put a railing in place so hopefully this will be addressed before your next visit. With our best wishes, Joanna.

Ideal location

We stayed here over New Year. This is a lovely house excellent location about a 10min walk into Falmouth. Lovely views from the top bedroom especially for watching the New Year fireworks. Lovely secure garden for the dogs. House was spotless clean. Parking was road side and was very hit and miss but we did manage to get a space, but I would imagine in the summer months you might struggle. Could do with a decent tv and perhaps sky, WiFi excellent. Shame about all the rubbish on the road due to the bins being ripped open by the seagulls not a good first impression when you arrive at the property.

From the Owner:
Dear Angela, Happy New Year and thank you for your kind review. I am the owner of Riverview and live overseas, I am sorry about the rubbish on the main road. Unfortunately it is the only collection point for all the cottages, and was probably more than usual due to Christmas excesses, may also not have been collected over Xmas. I do hope you will visit us again, and find it clean and tidy. Best wishes, Jo.

Perfect Autumn break

We always go away for a break around November. we'd never been to Falmouth before so we took the plunge. This house was the prefect choice. Great location, although parking was a challenge until we discovered we could walk into town! The house is well equipped and very welcoming. The bedrooms and bathrooms, esp. the shower upstairs in the loft bathroom were fab. The open fire went down a storm with my husband, we lit it every night. Overall would recommend this house. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Lovely property .

Lovely property very nice and comfortable inside. Outside needs a paint and a bit of TLC. Location is great for the view but difficult to park and access with cases etc very difficult.

From the Owner:
Dear Mr Hankins, Thank you for taking the time to write a review, and what a shame your visit was not after this coming week, as the painters start work on the outside on the 3rd of Nov. so Riverview will hopefully be bright and white, ready for next year. Most guests make use of the short term parking at the steps by the entrance to the property for unloading/loading luggage , so I am sorry if you found this difficult. We would lose our splendid view if the property was at street level. I hope you enjoyed your stay however, and that you may be able to visit us again sometime. Best wishes, Jo.

Last minute booking

We booked a week at the last minute and had a very good discount. The position is very good for walking into Falmouth. The property has excellent views and is very well equipped . Really helpful caretaker who quickly fixed a couple of issues for us. Cornwall cottages we're very helpful and efficient to deal with and will use them again. We really enjoyed our week and as usual the time went far too quickly.

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!

From the Owner:
Hi Melanie, I really hope you enjoyed your stay at River View. I sincerely apologize that you had some issues with your stay 'just needed a really good clean to be perfect' we have already spoken to our property manager about your concerns, and will address your issues asap. We appreciate your feedback and hope you may stay with us again in the future. With our best wishes.

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.

From the Owner:
Glad you enjoyed the cottage, sorry you did not find our Henry Hoover, it lives in the cupboard on the upstairs landing, we shall update our info sheet to inform further guests in future.

From the Owner:
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.
