Luxury Barn conversion Thyme Cottage

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Falmouth, Cornwall, England
My place is close to Falmouth, a converted barn in a rural location, benefiting from great views across the valley and sea glimpses. Detached from the hustle and bustle, but close to art and culture, the beach, restaurants, family-friendly activities. You’ll love my place because of the peace and tranquility of the rural setting yet be within easy access of all main attractions. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families
