House in Falmouth, Cornwall, Peaceful Location, 5 Minutes Walk From Falmouth's Charming Old High Street

Occupying an elevated yet private position with outstanding views across Falmouth Harbour, Seabien is perfect for watching boats, yachts and cruise ships crossing the port. Elegantly refurbished, light, spacious, and complemented by original artworks; there is ample accommodation for four guests. Large skylights flood the property with sunlight and even on dull days the house is wonderfully light. The high barrelled ceiling in the large sittingroom dining room add to the spacious effect.

Whilst quiet and secluded, Seabien is also conveniently placed for the vibrant town centre with its numerous restaurants, bars, old inns, galleries and shops and Events Square - home to The National Maritime Museum and Rick Stein's Seafood Bar. Beach lovers will adore Falmouth's four beautiful beaches, three with seasonal lifeguard patrol and two with excellent water sports facilities. Nearby gardens at Trebah, Glendurgan and Trelissick are lush and verdant with exotic plants. Keen walkers are spoilt for choice with spectacular coastal paths and glorious countryside. Pleasure boat trips depart daily from the town quay taking in the hidden creeks of the Carrick Roads or across to the pretty village of St Mawes on the Roseland Peninsula; a delightful spot to enjoy a drink or meal in one of the waterfront hotels.

Please note it is Friday to Friday booking.

Really glad you enjoyed some good walking too. All the best and look forward to seeing you again Vanessa

                                                        Just lovely, not far from everything, all you could possible want for a perfect stay

                                                        Joy M.

                                                        The nicest place we have stayed in Cornwall, just everything about it was lovely. Would definitely recommend

                                                        Lovely house, great location, superbly equipped.

                                                        Sheila M.

                                                        Lovely house, spotlessly clean, well equipped, great size for a family and day guests.

                                                        Very spacious, plenty of seating both for relaxing and meal times. The kitchen was very well equipped for self catering, with all that we needed.

                                                        The bedrooms were clean, bright and comfortable, having an ensuite was great with four adults.

                                                        Great location, easy to walk into Falmouth town centre and also located well for sight seeing, getting to the beach and coastal walks.

                                                        Overall a lovely place to stay.

                                                        A delightful holiday home

                                                        Rosanna C.

                                                        We have been lucky to have stayed in some lovely holiday homes in Cornwall, Seabien was one of the very best. Spotless, beautifully equipped - we didn't want to leave.

                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                        What a lovely review, thank you very much. So glad you had a good time and it was lovely meeting you both and hearing about all the beautiful walks and days out you had.

                                                        Do come back! Vanessa

                                                        Seabien - the best!

                                                        Adam and Ann P.

                                                        Simply the best accommodation we've had in over 20 years of visiting Cornwall! A very well-furnished, clean and comfortable place, with a brilliant sea view. A quiet position with off-road parking, and ideally placed for walking into town. The "little extras" (eg flowers, biscuits...) provided on arrival made us feel very welcome, as did the warm welcome from the owner. Eating in was made easy by the comprehensively-equipped kitchen, but there are also many excellent restaurants within reach. We'll be back!

                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                        Thank you very much for the five star review. Falmouth is a lovely place to visit throughout the year. There is always something happening just a stroll away! We would be delighted to welcome you again - perfect guests!!

                                                        Fab place to stay

                                                        Bill and KimWirral, Merseyside

                                                        Spent several months here whilst working in the area.

                                                        It was truly a home from home, with everything that you could need!

                                                        The house is modern, stylish and most importantly spotlessly clean.

                                                        Vanessa and Simon are wonderful hosts - couldn't do enough for us.

                                                        Hope to return later on this year whilst working there again.
