Sandra and family looked after us wonderfully (inc some impromptu coffee pot juggling at breakfast :-D ) Fantastic room with a bay window and small seating area to look down to the sea. The bed was huge and exceedingly comfy, and we also had a bath. Breakfast was gorgeous as well, which is always good. I can't recommend this B&B... More

If you are looking for a good B&B in Falmouth, I suggest you try the Westcott Guest House. This family run B&B is well situated, a couple of minutes stroll to the beeches, or approximately five minutes’ walk into Falmouth town. The Westcott experience starts on arrival as soon as you start to meet members of the family, Tommy, Sandra,... More
