Pretty bed and breakfast located 500 meters from the marina. Very warm welcome from Nick, the owner. Breakfasts are good but do not expect buffets encountered on the Continent.Beware if you are a smoker. The hostess will look at the evil eye.

Friendly hosts - breakfasts were plentiful and a variety of choice. Central to a short stroll into town or a short walk to the beach. House and rooms were clean and well laid out. Home made jams were a highlight of breakfast.

This has to be the classiest Guest House ever. The bedrooms are furnished to the highest standard. Breakfast is unbelievably good with scrambled eggs and smoked salmon exquisite, coffee is as good as it gets. Home made marmalade laced with vodka or whiskey or tequila or just plain marmalade has to be sampled to be believed. The hosts, Karen &... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Red House. It was easy to find and great to either drive to other areas of Cornwall or walk down to the town. The room was beautifully clean, with wonderful views - the bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. Breakfast was tasty and filling, and home-made jams too!... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Red House. The breakfasts were excellent and the owners provided much appreciated advice on what to see and do in the Falmouth area. We will recommend the Red House to our best friends without any hesitation.

As a vegan couple we were delighted by the originality and quality of the breakfast provided for us. The room was spacious with lovely bedding. The bathroom was spotless. The owners were welcoming and provided us with invaluable local information. The location was excellent for walking along the coast, local gardens and the walk into town was comfortable. We had...
