On a hill overlooking Falmouth Bay, boutique B&B The Sandy Duck combines sleek Scandinavian design with sea views and warm, home-from-home hospitality. Owner and manager Freyja earned her hosting stripes crewing aboard luxury yachts before she settled on the Cornish coast, transforming this Edwardian townhouse into a stylish, seven-room bolthole. Now, the interiors are painted in soothing shades and filled with a medley of modern Danish design, hand-picked antiques and artworks by her own family, creating rooms that are as inviting on a fresh January morning as they are on a hot summer’s day.
Pros: Excellent location, 5 min walk (10 at most) from town centre and the beach. Bright and airy rooms with a lovely comfortable bed, fresh milk in the fridge. Welcoming owner that goes the extra mile to make you feel welcome. Breakfast to die for with the best scrambled egg on earth and a breakfast special every day. Can't wait to return. 9.9/10
