Picturesque Escape

  • 5 of 5

Marilyn was fantastic from the moment we booked. She was quick to respond to my messages and answered all my questions. The house was fantastic, tucked away in a working farm, over looking the valley with sea views. With all the amenities my group needed, we had a lovely stay in Falmouth.
