About the Owner
About Nicola Galloway
My partner and I have lived in Falmouth for over 20 years. We were both drawn to cornwall because of our love of sailing, diving, surfing and never left.
Nicola Galloway purchased this house in 1991
Why Nicola Galloway chose Truro & Falmouth area
We initially drawn to this property because of the feeling it had when we first viewed it. It felt like a home and gave off a very warm feeling. It is in a unique location in the town centre tucked away down a quiet lane allowing to forget you are in town. You can hear birds outside and not traffic.
What makes this house unique
Not only is it close town and all the local beaches. It is great to be able to go to the pubs/restaurants and not have to worry about driving home. Its a short five minute walk back to the house. As I have mentioned we came to Falmouth because of our love of sailing and surfing. If you love the open ocean and spectacular beaches and also want to be close to town. This location gives you both.

Fab getaway house
Had a lovely week in Falmouth in this very comfortable and well appointed house. The location of the house is ideal and the views of the harbour are very time consuming! Sat for ages watching boats come and go and had a fabulous vantage point to see the fireworks display at the end of Falmouth week. The house was spotless when we arrived and we would highly recommend this holiday property to others. Its within easy walking distance of several beaches and the town and we caught the train into Truro one day from the nearby station. Train noise did not bother us but it is close to the railway line. Met the owner once and he was extremely pleasant and the neighbour is also very friendly.
