Bungalow in Falmouth, Cornwall, England, Central Location, 5 Minutes Walk To The Beach
About Caroline Dinham
The property is our home which we are renting out for the summer holidays. We have lived here for 11 years and have gradually renovated and extended it over the years. We love our house and garden, it's a brilliant place for a family holiday, everything is on your doorstep. We have two children and as a result of this the house and garden are entirely geared up for children
Caroline Dinham purchased this Bungalow in 2006
Why Caroline Dinham chose Falmouth
Having lived in South West London for 10 years we decided to get married and move back to Falmouth. We chose Falmouth, basically because it's the best place to live in Cornwall. We have 3 beaches, a vibrant bar and restaurant scene and we can walk to the boat! Can't beat that.
What makes this Bungalow unique
We haven't crammed in as many beds as we can do to maximise the price. The house is actually a 4 bedroom property but we have closed off one room to store our stuff in. So you get feel of a larger house as the kitchen and sitting room reflect a 4 bed rather than a 3 bed. If you want to spend the day on the beach, have a nice lunch, a glass of wine in the garden and then walk to a restaurant, this is definitely the place for you. Sneaky lunchtime drinks are also a possibility, as you could easily stay here without having to move the car.

Lovely house in great location
The property is lovely, light and spacious and suited us well with two young children. It is brilliantly located within a short walk to town and the beach, which meant we frequently didn't need to use the car.
Absolutely fabulous family holiday. Beautiful weather, beautiful place, beautiful house. Perfect location, lovely and big, fantastic garden. All the family were impressed and would love to come back again.
So pleased that you had such a great holiday. Thanks also for being such super guests, you left the house in such a lovely condition, so please do come back!
excellent location, great size property & garden
The location was perfect, 5 mins walk into town / beach;
And All the tourists sights that we wanted to visited, were just 30 to 60 minutes drive away.
The rooms in the property were a great size, all clean, modern and very comfortable.
The garden was spacious, withlots of flowers/plants/tress - nice for relaxing in the evenings.
So pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Thanks also for being such lovely guests.
Unsere Familie (2 Erwachsene, 2 Kinder) hat eine wunderbare Woche im Haus von
Caroline verbracht. Das Haus ist super ausgestattet und bietet genug Platz für vier Leute.
Parkplatz, WLAN, Waschen, Kochen... alles kein Problem. Der Garten ist wunderschön, leider hatten wir mehr Regen als Sonne. Die Innenstadt ist wirklich nur 5 Minuten zu Fuss entfernt und ein Erlebniss. Man kann viel unternehmen: Hafen, Burg, Lands End, St.Michaels, St. Maves und vieles mehr sind (neben vielen anderen Shehenswürdigkeiten) als Tagestouren zu empfehlen. Die Reiseplanung und Kommunikation mit Caroline war immer sehr nett und produktiv. Vielen Dank an dieser Stelle an die nette Gastgeberin.
So pleased that you enjoyed your stay.
Lovely bungalow in a great location
We've just come back from a great holiday staying at this modern bungalow in a quiet location but still just a short walk from the town and beaches of falmouth. The bungalow was light and airy, clean and very well equipped. We were also spoilt for choice with the number of different good quality restaurants available from award winning fish and chips, South African, Italian and Caribbean. It's was nice to have days where we didn't have to use the car such as getting the ferry to tresslick and truro, walking to play crazy golf, or going to the cinema. Trebah gardens are only a short drive away, and then we drove a little further to praa Sands, st michaels mount, the lizard and kynance cove all about 40 minutes away. Thank you for letting us share your home from home.
Thanks so much for your lovely review, I am delighted that you enjoyed staying at our property.
A perfect retreat
Cannot rate this place enough! Quiet location yet only a short distance to the town and beaches. The house has everything you would ever need and is very clean and nicely decorated.
Thank you for a wonderful stay and see you next year.
