Captain Upton’sJust released - a beautiful waterside house in the heart of town, part of a 300 year old development with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and lots of character to provide luxury accommodation for up to 4 guests.
Captain Upton’s has been recently transformed into a charming central Falmouth holiday home set over 3 floors and now offers luxury accommodation for up to 4 lucky guests. Part of a row of cottages said to have been built in 1708 by Captain Richard Upton, a former smuggler turned excise man who went on to become Mayor of Falmouth on two occasions and lived in the house at the top of Upton’s Slip, where a blue plaque bears his name.
Tucked away in a peaceful courtyard guests arrive to the newly installed kitchen with its solid oak floors and doors which give this room a cosy cottage feel.
The kitchen offers everything you would need to prepare a sumptuous meal in style, equipped with a range cooker and full height fridge freezer along with a dishwasher. The house is full of interesting artefacts such as the large dining table with industrial base and fisherman’s lights.
If the sun shines why not take your breakfast out into the large courtyard? Located at the rear of the property and full of tropical planting there is also a patio table and chairs as well as a BBQ for al-fresco dining.
On this floor you will also find a handy WC and shower room – ideal after a day at the beach or on the water!
The first floor living room is spacious and decorated with a nautical theme. The large blue sofa invites you to kick back and relax or perhaps snuggle into one of the armchairs with a good book and the sound of the seagulls.

Thank you for a brilliant week in Falmouth. The location of Captain Uptons was perfect. The accommodation was exactly as described including thoughtful additions such as the umbrellas ( we had to use unfortunately and torches.
We are grateful to you for advising us to make an alternative selection and feel that the choice was the best! We were there to visit our sons degree show at Falmouth University and the house provided the perfect location for our celebration of his achievements. Thank you so much!
