We had a fantastic time in Falmouth, and a perfect stay at The Red House. Nick and Karen were so welcoming and friendly they also gave us some lovely ideas of where to visit near-by. Thank you Nick and Karen.

There was a warm welcome from Karen and Mike. Room comfortable, may benefit from blackout blinds in the future but on the whole good. Excellent en suite facilities and the benefit of a fridge in the room. Excellent breakfasts, good sized portions with locally sourced produce and Karen's home made marmalades. Great location, five mins walk to centre of Falmouth...

The Red House is well situated for visiting Falmouth - easy to walk to the town centre and the beach. There wasn't enough onsite parking space for my car, but it's easy to park in street opposite. My room had a nice view and was well-appointed - as signalled in advance, my private shower/ WC was across the corridor, which...
