About the Owner

We have lived in Falmouth for 18 years after moving from London. We have been renovating the main house and now are moving onto the cottages attached. We have 3 children who have grown up enjoying all the water sports and activities. There are so many things you can do from walking along the natural coastline, to water sports, visiting gardens and galleries. There is always something going on Sailing regattas, oyster festivals, river festivals and art exhibitions and they are all through the year.

We have just returned from a fabulous week at Wisteria Cottage. A perfect cottage with everything we needed. Location is beautiful and just a short walk from the town. We didn't want to leave and would love to return sometime :-)

My dream home

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned home after a glorious long weekend at Wisteria Cottage - what a find! A beautiful old cottage full of charm, with window seats to while away the time & all the mod cons to make life easy. The setting was perfect too; quaint entrance just off the sea front, so you feel like you're in a hidden paradise, but still get to enjoy the walk along the seafront into town. Can't wait to return.

Second visit to this property (10 years apart!) Just as lovely as we remembered, and the new bathroom and shower room are great.

Fabulous position for exploring Falmouth and getting further afield.

Hope it's not so long before we return!
