About Fiona Osman

My husband grew up in Port Navas on the Helford River and it was always his dream to return to Cornwall and raise a family. We moved from London in 1999 with one small child and now have managed to fill our family home with four! I work for a local independent girls school in Truro and my husband wants to pursue his dream of running his own sailing school. Our four children are at local schools. We love Cornwall and spend our free time either on board our boat moored in the Helford River or, at our caravan based at Sennen, close to Land's End.

Fiona Osman purchased this house in 1999

Why Fiona Osman chose Truro & Falmouth area

Falmouth is a fantastic coastal town to raise a family, holiday or just for a day trip! It has so much to offer all ages and we feel lucky to live here!

What makes this house unique

The close proximity of our house to the main park in Falmouth is a great benefit to those who enjoy a walk or want to entertain children (of any age) in the newly developed play area. Shops, restaurants and multi-plex cinema are just 5 minutes walk down the hill or it's a 15 minute walk to the beach. Our covered courtyard lets you play outside, even if the weather isn't everything you could wish for, and we have a sofa in the covered entrance to enjoy a quiet drink, far from the madding crowd. It's a big house, so everyone can enjoy a little peace and quiet if they choose to take time out!

Guestbook comments from the owner

A Lovely family home! Thank you, we felt so welcome!

Two weeks flew by, there was so much to enjoy!

The table tennis table was a huge hit with all members of the group - what ever their ability we had great fun!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house with all you need for a great relaxing holiday. We had teenagers, and with a short walk to both the beaches and the town, they had great freedom whilst we had a wonderful time trying out all the local cuisine! Fiona was really easy to deal with and communication was great. Would highly recommend.

Falmouth July 2016

  • 4 of 5

Great communication with owners prior to arrival and they were happy to negotiate arrival 1 day earlier to help us out. The house was perfect for nine of us ( four adults , 5 kids including teens ! ) with a great communal kitchen area for us all. The covered outside area was great for table tennis and washing bits out and the bar b que got some use too in the top garden. The beds were nicely made up and comfortable and spacious for us all. Kids had adequate space around their bunks too. Good selection of DVDs and CD was a nice homely touch which helped to make this feel like home for the week. No issues with any showers, baths, services or wifi in any way which was a great relief ! The kitchen range was great to cook on and everything was there that we needed. The house was ideally situated with a short walk into town and a park opposite for early dog walks.This is the first time we have used this site or booked any accommodation like this and if they are all to this standard then we would definitely use again without hesitation. Many thanks to the owners for their house and a great holiday !!

Lovely holiday

  • 4 of 5

This isn't an all singing all dancing modern home. However, that's why we loved it. This home has character, it's big and it never felt crowded. It is very well situated for the town, with it's many dog friendly restaurants and pubs. The owners are lovely people and were on hand and very close, should we have needed them. This home was perfect for our stay and the large kitchen was great for all the family to sit and chat. It gave us some great memories of a lovely holiday, enjoy.
