Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time in your home. It accommodated our family and both sets of parents easily. Such an advantage to have so many en-suites - no queuing for the shower!! We can't wait to return!

We loved your modern home and so many places to eat on our doorstep. I'm sure your kitchen would be wonderful to cook in but with so much choice we were out every night!

Great for teenagers! We all had our own space and the wifi was a godsend when the weather turned against us. Clean, contemporary, -they thought it was really cool.

A great house with amazing views over Falmouth. Perfect position for the shops, boats, parks and walks. The house is furnished well and the owner is helpful and easy to contact. I will be visiting again in the future. Thank you.

Clean, spacious, well-equipped, lovely view.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay. All five bedrooms are good doubles with en suites. The decor is modern and clean with wooden floors, which makes sweeping up any sand brought back from the beach very easy. The view from the corner of the living rooms and two of the bedrooms is stunning, with the sun rising over the harbour. It was very handy for wandering into town and for exploring Cornwall by car.

Summer 2015

  • 5 of 5

An amazing 2 weeks, with 3 generations, spent in this well maintained and equipped house. Close to the high st and local shops - with the added advantage of amazing views, easily accessible fishing, beach and an excellent local pub! :) We were able to entertain at home, and the kitchen had everything we needed and more. A real pleasure to stay with the added bonus of enough bathrooms for everyone :) A definite find which we won't forget and hopefully will revisit. Our visitors - we have local family - all asked for the details and commented on how well thought out and presented it was. Thank you Bridget and family for taking the time to make things so right.

Great Cornish Seaside Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely modern house with lots of light and great views. The bedrooms are all spacious with great modern en suites. It was immaculately clean and had all the facilities you would expect. We were a party of 8, with ages ranging from 7-79 and we all had a great time. The house is in an excellent position to walk into town (it is pretty steep though) and is very close to the Prince of Wales pier making it really close for many boat trips. Falmouth is a good base for sightseeing both locally (Pendennis Castle, the Maritime Museum and lovely beaches and shops) but also with a car for trips further afield. Good access to the coastal path for walks. Its also great for meals out in the evening or lunchtime.

I would recommend Harbour Loft to any family for a great holiday. Bridget also made booking very easy and answered all our questions really quickly.

Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with three generations to celebrate my 60th birthday. The house is very spacious, well furnished and equipped and an ideal location for Falmouth with no need to use the cars. The views are outstanding.

Would recommend for extended families particularly as everyone can have their own bathroom.

A lovely place for a Cornish holiday.

We built Harbour Loft in 2010 on a plot of land that had been in the family for many years. My husband grew up in Falmouth and loved it! We planned to return as a family but have so far been unable to relocate from our current home in Cardiff. We are still hoping to be able to live in Harbour Loft one day soon!

Facilities

From the Owner

We love the convenience of being situated above "The Moor' with all its facilities but also we are each able to walk to the beach when we get up(!!) and meet for brunch in the beach cafe! Older relatives use the local mini bus service - free for older people which leaves the Quarry car park 2 minutes away and completes a circular route through the town to the beach.You really can decide not to use your cars here. The house is ideal for extended family as each bedroom having its own en-suite means that all age groups can be independent.Wifi helps to keep people in touch. The roads in Falmouth can be very hard to find a parking space in so off road parking for up to 3 cars is a real bonus.
