Nestled above the incredible Inspire Makers shop, on the historic High Street, is the exceptional, Grade II listed, ‘Maker’s Loft’ apartment. Lovingly renovated over eighteen months, with a close eye for detail, this really is a very decadent retreat for two, or expand your party and bring two little ones along to enjoy the unique loft room.

Immerse yourself in the bijou garden with a good book, a glass of something cold and a few Nocellara olives. Breakfast is sure to be particularly sunny in this spot. Pop a few doors down to the artisan bakery, ‘Stones‘ and grab a loaf of their renowned sourdough and slather with Cornish butter and raspberry jam. Holidays are made for long, indulgent meal times.

Falmouth’s old High Street has long been a creative hub by day, with artist studios, designers, and makers selling their services and wares. The Old Brewery Yard, once a stable block, oozes charm and is a real social space, for daytime eating and late night beverages.

All brand new for spring 2021, let Maker’s Loft cosset you, with its mid-century, vintage furniture mixed with high end, contemporary furnishings and Cornish artwork.



Wooden door on the High Street, opening to a slate flagged, courtyard entrance (shared with one other). Door to Maker’s Loft, which opens to a steep flight of wooden stairs and hand rail to the first floor living space and master suite.

Master bedroom

With king size (5ft) bed, wardrobe, tall boy drawers, Freesat TV, bedside tables and lamps.

Ensuite shower room

Rain head shower, stunning Mandarin Stone tiles, WC, small basin and heated towel rail.


Kitchen with electric oven, induction hob, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, extractor, microwave and washer/dryer. Dining table and chairs to seat 4.

Sitting room

Generous L-shaped sofa, chair, Freesat TV, DVD player, bespoke joinery housing games, books and also a household store cupboard.  Double glazed, sash window overlooking the High Street.

Loft bedroom

With two single (3ft) loft beds, bedside tables, lamps and bean bags. 5ft4 at the peak of the roof, so it will not be possible for some adults to stand in this space. Velux window, so you may enjoy the murmurs of the harbour and town whilst you sleep.


Bath, shower over, WC, heated towel rail and basin.

Terraced garden

Table and chairs for 4, barbeque and bench on a lower terrace.


There is parking in a secure parking complex, approx 200m away for a small – medium sized car. If you wish to stay at Maker’s Loft and you have a large estate car, a SUV, van, or anything over 2m in height, then please prepare to park elsewhere. We suggest you get a weekly ticket for the Quarry Hill car park in this instance.


Location and Surrounding Area


Amidst the buzz and bustle of Falmouth’s famous Old High Street, a colourful passageway lined with independent shops, café’s and more than a few hidden surprises, you’ll discover Makers Loft.

Find inspiration from local artists and makers in the galleries and gift shops, this street is lined with creativity. You’ll find it right beneath your feet at Inspire Makers downstairs.

Wander around the corner to Old Brewery Yard, a cobbled courtyard filled with colour. Here, a restaurant and laid back bar offer alfresco tables and live music.

Opposite the flat, an old Cornish ‘opeway’ offers a glimpse of Falmouth Harbour, your taste of what’s to come on the water. Falmouth Harbour is dotted with boats and you’ll find it easy to get out onto the water and explore. From the bottom of the Old High Street ferries can be caught over to St Mawes, of upriver to the Cathedral city of Truro.

For beaches, Falmouth has three. Blue Flag Gyllyngvase, rockpool-laden Castle Beach and Swanpool with white sand and great ice cream. Take your pick from a local favourite or head out to one of the famously rugged expanses of sand on the North Coast – most are within a 45-minute drive.

You’ll be well-fed with a stay here, with plenty of restaurants to explore. Local produce is abundant in this part of Cornwall, so pick up some fresh seafood straight from the boat and cook up a storm.

Award-winning gardens are close by too. Wander through gunnera at Trebah, recently voted one of Britain’s top ten gardens by Vogue magazine.




- February 2023

The apartment is beautifully furnished, in fact we wished the shop was open so we could ask more about it. We would have loved similar pieces for our own home. It was homely, cosy, comfortable and, stylish. The stairs, as warned, are steep, and we are used to Dutch houses! The depth of the steps to either side of the stairs was unexpected and for a clumsy person like me had to be carefully navigated. The heating was an oddity and kept reverting to 14 degrees which was indeed chilly for January. More instructions on that would have been useful. Similarly we found the taps gave really hot water, but the showers didn’t, and probably as an old building the water pressure felt low. All things that were an aside to a lovely stay. It is a great location and if you’re into your local history then there are some fascinating tales and facts about the area of town the apartment is in. We enjoyed our stay and would very happily stay again!


Many thanks for finding the time to send through a review of your recent stay at Maker's Loft in Falmouth. We are grateful for your feedback regarding the stairs, heating and water and we will feed this back to the owner. It is a joy to read that you felt the apartment was beautifully furnished, comfortable, and stylish. We very much look forward to welcoming you warmly back to Falmouth again in the future. Kind regards from all of us at Cornish Holiday Cottages.
