Why James & Sally Harrison chose Truro & Falmouth area

We first stayed in Castaways in 2004, bought it in 2007 and have had many very happy family holidays. Our children have grown up on the beach and have progressed from playing in the shallows to surfing. We love the walks along the coast, the wonderful Blue Flag beach and watching the sea from house.

What makes this cottage unique

Almost on the beach.

Fabulous holiday

  • 4 of 5

Castaways is in an ideal location for a fabulous family beach holiday.

The house is well presented with a perfect location 75 yards from the beach.Plenty of parking & the blue bar is an excellent watering hole.

The house maybe a bit of a tight squeeze if you are all adults then again when the weather's so wonderful the sleeping arrangements don't really matter

Fantastic family beach holiday location

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has everything you need for a great family holiday. The village feels very secure, so we happily let our older child explore on his own. The play park opposite the cottage (with pub next door as vantage point) was perfect for the younger ones. The cottage itself again feels secure, is clean and bright and situated brilliantly close to the beautiful beach. Highly recommend.
