Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A perfect chill and relax cottage. Superb views, lots of interest on the estuary. The Dwelling House in Fowey great for food, also the beach cafe at Talland excellent.A very comfortable cottage with the most helpful owners. Want to return. Sept 2011.
  2. We enjoyed a fantastic, fun holiday. The location of this cottage is outstanding, as are the views from the property. The owners provided everything you could possibly need, including a much appreciated cream tea and wine on arrival. We had never stayed anywhere with our dog before so were unsure what to expect in terms of cleanliness etc. in a rental cottage that welcomed dogs! We were pleasantly surprised. The cottage was clean and comfortable yet it was homely enough for us to be relaxed about my son coming in from the beach wet and covered in sand, and the dog coming along too without any worry. A very enjoyable stay. Aug 2011.
  3. Excellent location and lovely to have a cream tea and wine waiting for us on arrival. The weather was brilliant and so were the views. Went on some lovely dog walks. July 2011.
  4. Lovely small but perfectly formed cottage, in a great location in Pol Ruan close to the harbour and beautiful walks. The owner left a lovely bottle of wine and Cornish cream tea for us on our arrival. The views are great and the beds comfy. It would’ve been helpful to have have a hoover to clean the floor midweek as the children brought in a bit of sand from the beach. July 2011.
  5. Brochure description of this cottage is accurate, this is not a good choice of cottage for the elderly or very young children. The streets of Polruan are really steep, access for loading the car is difficult and car parking is some distance away. That said, the harbour front location, view from the bedroom window, equipment in the cottage and the owners welcome pack were excellent. The village store is excellent and the location for walking wonderful. We highly recommend Lantis Bay to any beach lovers who are willing to take a steep walk to a wonderful destination. July 2011.
  6. Had a fantastic long weekend. Cottage was definitely better than a 2 star rating. Wonderful views from lounge and bedroom. Everything that you need was provided. Great for dogs - great walks from the front door. Both local pubs were great and very friendly. Feb 2011.
  7. Location and lovely views of river. Oct 2010.
  8. It was just a great location for a lovely cosy cottage. Oct 2010.
  9. The size of the house was just right for the three of us, quite cosy, but the best bit was looking over the estuary to Fowey, the front room and the bedroom really were ’rooms with a view’, very quiet too. Oct 2010.
  10. This a snug property right on the harbour in an idyllic, quiet seaside town. Fowey across the river has excellent restaurants and night life but Polruan is nice and quiet. It was a lovely place to curl up in front of the fire with a book and go for coastal walks. Will definitely be back! Aug 2010.
  11. Accommodation was just right, the layout was good with the eating area at the front looking out onto the River Fowey and Fowey itself. Also the main bedroom had a wonderful view. Aug 2010.
  12. Everything we needed was there including a welcoming bottle of wine after a nightmare journey. Beautiful view overlooking the lower harbour. Aug 2010.
  13. Very quiet (because of lack of car access) yet accessible for shops, pubs and ferry to Fowey. A lovely setting, just great to relax and watch the boats coming and going within the harbor. July 2010.
  14. A delightful, cosy and well equipped cottage with lovely views over the Fowey estuary. June 2010.
  15. Property very comfortable and big enough for a weekend holiday. April 2010.
  16. Cosy, Cornwall cottage in a lovely town. All amenties catered for, felt like a home from home. Oct 2009.
  17. The area we stayed was spectacular and the view from the main bedroom was beautiful. Excellent place we will definitely go there again. May 2009.
  18. The cottage was fantastic, no complaints what so ever. The owner was extremely helpful. May 2007.
  19. Fantastic location in a lovely part of Cornwall. June 2007.
