September 2020

Lovely apartment with tasteful and cosy decor of a really high standard throughout which created lots of "wows" when we arrived and ensured a comfortable stay. Situated in the centre of town next to the library, it was ideally located for all amenities and about a mile from the beach. Added little treat of gowns & slippers made for a luxury stay.

The location of the property is good and everything in the house is brand new It's quiet noisy but you get to live in the heart and centre of Falmouth! Easy access to Facilities, markets and shops. Amazing bakeries near by. I highly recommend to buy Fish at Seabourne Fish mongers in Penryn!

We managed to book this last minute (literally the night before) after a last minute cancellation on a holiday we already had booked. The property is absolutely beautiful, decorated to an extremely high standard and perfectly clean! We wouldn’t have necessarily chosen this property with 2 young children given the choice as it is located in the town centre, however it suited us perfectly and we all loved it. The booking was so quick and straight forward compared with being poorly treated by another very well known holiday company - very impressed and highly recommend! Will definitely be booking with aspects again - thank you for saving our holiday!
