About The Owner

We are a Young couple who met whilst working on yachts over seas. Having travelled for over 5 years, Falmouth is the place we chose to settle. Its buzing yet traditional ways, beautifull beaches and steep cliffs got the best of us! It might sometimes take a while to get from here to our respective famillys but the trip is always worth it! We split our time between Cornwall and France and are happy to let other people enjoy our little seaview cottage whilst we are away!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2014

average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

A quaint cosy place with views over Falmouth estuary

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a great week and thoroughly enjoyed our time at The Cockleshell, which had everything we needed for our stay. The owner was in touch from the start making sure we were happy and all was well, and answering any queries we might have. The property is a few minutes walk down the hill to the town centre, shops, etc, making it a very convenient spot to be.
