Perched up high, in the hub of Falmouth’s Victorian cottage terraces, sits Skysail, a contemporary, new build residence with oodles of charm.

Spread over three floors with a bathroom conveniently located on each floor, Skysail offers ample room for your family/group to come together or for individuals to find space alone, depending on how the mood flows. The quirky sleeping spaces make this holiday home most comfortable for six people, however a further child or two can be accommodated with prior arrangement on booking.

Revel in the influx of natural light and charming views over Falmouth’s rooftops to the harbour. The two, bijou balconies on opposing sides of the house allow for maximum opportunity for sunlight basking. The courtyard garden with raised bed, coastal plants, table, chairs and gas barbeque is sheltered and may be just the contrast you need after a day on the beach. Sometimes you just don’t want sandy sausages!

Lay down on the large sofa in winter, with a gripping read in hand and toes toasty by the wood-burner. Saunter down to Falmouth town for breakfast treats from Stones Bakery and back up Jacob Ladder’s thigh-warming 111 steps to earn that Pain au Raisin.

Gyllyngvase Beach is 15 minutes on foot and as well as some idyllic swimming waters, is also the home to WeSUP paddleboard club and hire centre, Gylly beach bakery and renowned café with large open-air deck. Vitamin Sea awaits you.

Location and Surrounding Area


Falmouth is a University town, with a long-established art school, a thriving superyacht industry and a working dockyard. Enjoy the energy and friendly atmosphere of this historic harbour town.

Skysail occupies an elevated position on a residential street close to the town centre and Piazza where frequent markets are held, most notably the weekly Farmer’s Market on a Tuesday.

There are coffee shops, ice cream parlours and restaurants aplenty. The best get booked some way in advance in the summer months, so be sure to make a reservation.

Just at the bottom of the hill is the Prince of Wales Pier, where passenger ferries can be taken on foot across the glistening harbour for day trips on the coast.

You’ll have easy access to any of Falmouth’s three sandy beaches, and we recommend you visit them all during your stay for a relaxing afternoon or sea swimming, sunbathing, and ice-cream.

Although the property was lovely and we enjoyed our stay, in my opinion it was overpriced at nearly two thousand a week

Additional Guests
Skysail is best suited to six people as there is a king-size bed and a super-king/twin room on the first floor. There is also a lovely, second-floor balcony room with double bed (pushed up against the wall). As the bed is situated in this position we regard it only suitable for one person, although of course, you may like to sleep two in there. The further bed space is the mezzanine double mattress with quirky access and low headroom. Again we regard this bed as suitable for one (able-bodied) person, but it may be perfect for a young couple with a sense of adventure. There is a sofa bed in the reading room, to allow for some flexibility should the mezzanine bed not be your preference. Bedding will be provided for the sofa bed if special arrangements have been made with the CHC office, at least two weeks in advance of your stay.

Please be sure to let us know on booking or at least two weeks prior to arrival your bedroom requirements, so that the housekeeping team can make up the beds correctly for your party.

Mezzanine bed:
Not suitable for small children, anyone with mobility issues or a sleepwalker as there are ladder-like steps to access the bed and a considerable drop from the platform. As the bed is located in the roof space the headroom is limited but the views and sunrise over the Carrick Roads from the bed are worth it.
