About Ann Doidge

I grew up in North London and now live near Croydon. I always had a yearning to travel to Cornwall. My paternal grandfather was born in Launceston and I first visited Bude with my parents in the 1970's.

I worked for a Government Department in London for 37 years before retiring in 2014.

Having spent many family holidays in Cornwall I longed to be able to buy a property there this was made possible with a legacy.

Ann Doidge purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Ann Doidge chose Falmouth

After many happy family holidays on the North Coast of Cornwall our favourite places being Bude, Perranporth and Newquay we decided to visit the South Coast and stayed at Falmouth and Swanpool.

Following two very enjoyable holidays at this property we bought it when it came on the market.

What makes this apartment unique

Purpose built ground floor apartment in two storey block with private access.

Designated off street parking adjacent.

Central location near the Maritime Museum, events square, Port Pendennis and the marina, and a short walk to the beaches.

Beautiful well located apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful, comfortable apartment. It was much larger than I expected and was very well equipped. It was lovely that tea, coffee, milk and biscuits had been provided for when we arrived. The location was perfect for us being right opposite the docks where my husband's ship was moored. A ten minute walk takes you into town so you can leave your car parked safely outside the apartment in its designated spot. Highly recommended.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location 5 mins from the dock train station and a gentle 10 min walk to town. All the equipment and facilities we needed for our stay in the large and comfortable apartment. Falmouth has excellent facilities with many good restaurants, bars and shops and ferry services to local areas.

Would love to stay again

Great facilities and location. Comfortable, clean and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Great location for town, beaches, bars and restaurants, walks and attractions. Blessed with the weather this year, but even in the rain and drizzle Falmouth is a lovely place to be. Have known this area for over 40 years, and return every year.

Car: not necessary

With Falmouth Docks the Maritime Line railway station only a couple of

hundred yards away and the Falmouth shuttle bus and coach stop close by,

a car is unnecessary nonetheless; free off street parking is available

for one vehicle.

You can take the ferry to beautiful St Mawes for the day or enjoy a

delightful trip around the estuary stopping off at either Trebah Gardens

or the Smugglers Cottage for a cream tea.

There are plenty of places to eat & drink in Falmouth Rick Stein's

Fish & Chip Restaurant & Oyster Bar at Discovery Quay or a

little further on our own favourite Harbour Lights Arwenack Street the

award winning fish and chip restaurant.

A visit to the nearby National Maritime Museum is a must.
