Come and join us for a restful and relaxing break at our family run guest house. The Red House is an elegant and distinctive Victorian house which overlooks the picturesque harbour and the River Fal. The original house was built and owned by Lord Kimberly circa 1870 and still retains a lot of the old charm and character, we have refurbished with sympathy towards the character, but the bedrooms contain most of the modern worlds conveniences. Some of the bedrooms are on the ground floor providing easy access to the breakfast room and lounge.


We are ideally positioned to capture the beauty of Falmouth and all it has to offer. We are situated about 150 Mts from the seafront (Gyllyngvase and Castle Beaches) and about a 5 - 7 minute walk into the town and harbour. No need to use the car just leave it in our large private car park and explore Falmouth with all its alley ways or enjoy a trip to St Mawes or Truro and other destinations by one of the numerous ferries.



Enjoy our traditionally cooked Full English breakfast in our airy breakfast room, we use locally produced products where possible. We provide cereals, fruit compote, yogurt, juices or sample some of Karen's homemade jams and marmalade. We can cater for vegetarians, vegans, gluten, wheat free and lactose intolerant. Most of the produce used is organic and grown locally where possible. Other diets are available if informed prior to arrival.



There are complimentary trays in the bedrooms, all have colour television some have DVD players and all have Freeview digital, small fridges, CD and radio players and hairdryers most are fully ensuite all are centrally heated, all bedrooms are either double or secondary glazed. We have three ground floor bedrooms available. We have no petty restrictions you can come and go as you please, keys are provided for the guest room and front door. For your comfort the whole guest house is completely non - smoking.
