We all really enjoyed our visit to Falmouth and to the Rathgowry. Sharon was a wonderful hostess and Mike a great cook. The location was perfect and the rooms clean and welcoming. There was a great choice of breakfast dishes and everything was done to ensure we were happy. The sweets for the homeward journey were a lovely touch. We... More

The location is great with easy access to the beach. A large house that has been modernised in a very stylish way during recent years. The hosts are so welcoming, informative, pleasant and attentive. The omelettes are to die for.

Booked this online and also telephoned. This was done due to being at a wedding at the Royal Duchy. Wow, so glad we did. This is a real hidden gem. Right opposite beach, wonderful views, as well as 5 minute walk to the wedding hotel and 10-15 minute walk into centre. We had the family room, large and spacious, even... More

A nice Bed & Breakfast with perfect location and a very nice host couple. Great hospitality. 3 minutes walk to the beach and 10 minutes to the center. We enjoyed our stay very much. This B&B is recommended if you go to Falmouth!

We stayed here in May for a few days with our 5 month old son. The location is just perfect – right next to the beach, yet only a short walk into town. Our room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious. Sharon was welcoming, very friendly and really went the extra mile to accommodate our son.... More

First time visit to Cornwall for myself,wife and daughter and could not have chose a better place to stay than this well appointed b&b. Just one minute walk from the beach and ten minutes from the town on a quiet side road with enough off road parking for several cars. Sharon and Mike have only owned the property for almost... More

What a great find. The location was great, close to beach and town. The bed was really comfortable and the food lovely. Sharon and Mike were super hosts, nothing was too much trouble and 'the sweets for the journey' were a lovely touch. We loved the sea view.
