The highlights
  • From the enamel and brass Italian stove to the Egyptian cotton bedding, from the underfloor heating in the bathroom to the full length mirrors in the bedrooms, no detail has been overlooked and no expense spared in creating a genuinely luxurious space.
  • Having been renovated over a nearly two year period in conjunction with the Cornwall Heritage and Conservation Authority, you won't find a comfortable Falmouth home as authentic and beautifully restored as Marine Cottage.
  • From subtropical plants to local ferns, the outside space is a testament to Cornwall's unique flora.
  • Spacious, light-filled and decorated with a charming combination of far-flung treasure and reassuringly local styles, Marine Cottage is a one of a kind house.
  • You're also just a 10 minutes stroll from the beach.

The detail

Nestled in a historic and charming area in the old part of town, and characterised inside and out by a traditional Cornish rural aesthetic, Marine Cottage is the ultimate getaway for guests who are seeking a truly special holiday experience at a no-compromise self-catering cottage. With the beach accessible via a ten minute stroll, views reaching Pendennis Castle, and off-road parking, this is a five star holiday spot which is guaranteed to be memorable and relaxing.

The house itself is Grade II listed, and as soon as you approach the structure you'll realise why. Since its eighteenth century construction, Marine Cottage has been judiciously updated, creating a house which combines historic architectural grandeur with the amenities you expect from a twenty first century holiday home. The bedrooms are set up as a double and a twin with extra large singles separated by a fireplace. Both rooms share a single central bathroom finished with Carrara marble.

From the upper floor you can see the sea itself, as well as Saint Mawes and Pendennis Castle, an architectural and maritime treat for the eyes, and splendid in all light and seasons. Downstairs, the ground floor sitting room has a large flat screen television which can be concealed behind mirrored panels, ideal for a night in watching a film, kept snug and warm by the wood-burning stove.

The kitchen is a real stand-out feature, and while the decor of the house emphasises adventure, travel and a rich breadth of aesthetics experienced around the world, the kitchen is truly Cornish. From the traditional exposed stone wall to the fish scale mosaic marble floor with its laid in heating, this is a testament to the pleasing and enduring Cornish aesthetic. From here, a sunken 'sun room' style dining space creates the perfect room to dine, drink a glass of wine or simply take in the evening light after a long day spent on the beaches or wandering the town.

This is a cottage which really does have to be taken in to be appreciate in all of its Georgian splendour. Despite feeling secure, tranquil and private, the house is a stone's throw from the water, and perfectly located to take in the great pubs, seafood restaurants, art galleries and independent shops of the surrounding area. From coastal walks to artist studio tours and fresh lobster to swimming in the Atlantic, there is a wholesome and restorative activity for everybody. Guests can enjoy this fabulous area, long celebrated for its vibrancy, natural and architectural beauty and charm. Even the local Star and Garter pub offers award-winning contemporary British food.
