Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The view is just like the picture, a great place to relax. June 2012.
  2. This property is stunning, exactly as it was described. The owners are superb hosts and the cream tea and welcome pack on arrival make this a very special holiday destination. I can’t recommend it highly enough, we will definitely be going back! May 2012.
  3. The attention to detail and visitors comfort was second to none. It was a thoroughly enjoyable stay that certainly refreshed our batteries. Oct 2011.
  4. A beautiful location, very peaceful, very well equipped. Excellent welcome package including cream tea! A smaller car is helpful but not essential. Oct 2011.
  5. This property was of an exceptionally high standard. The owners were extremely helpful and many extras were included like a cream tea on arrival, a huge bowl of fruit and ingredients for a cooked breakfast. It was comfortable, peaceful and situated in a stunning location. The village has a good pub (3 mins walk). Roads are fairly steep and narrow but very quiet. The best holiday we have had in a very long time. July 2011.
  6. The number of ’extras’ that were included in the welcome pack made us feel welcomed! The apartment decor was very pleasing to the eye with pictures on the wall painted by a local artist. The owners were extremely friendly and apart from the horrible weather the holiday was great. We would certainly recommend this apartment. June 2011.
  7. A beautiful property in an unspoilt location. Really quiet and relaxing. The owners were lovely too and could not do enough for us. All in all - perfect! June 2011.
  8. This property was exemplary...stylish, comfortable, top quality and a superb location. April 2011.
  9. A lovely place with all mod-cons. A ’Home from Home’ with great views over the river. We were welcomed with a clotted cream tea waiting for us; a huge platter of fruit & even the ingredients for a cooked breakfast in the fridge for the next day! Certainly the best self catering accommodation we have stayed in so far-both home & abroad. Would heartily recommend it for the peace & quiet;great views & walks. Even provided books, DVD’s & CDs. You don’t need to take any extras with you - towels, soap etc & even loo rolls were provided! Everything was to a high standard. A lovely place to stay. March 2011.
  10. The property itself is excellent but the parking can be difficult. Feb 2011.
  11. Beautiful views; fabulous area to be in; accommodation was spotless and created with a lot of thought in mind. Just what it says on the tin - River Retreat; and just what the doctor ordered!! Feb 2011.
  12. Beautifully situated, great views across the river Fowey. The balcony would prove a wonderful, relaxing, viewing platforn during lazy summer evenings. Wooded slopes opposite and boats at anchor added to the scene. Oct 2010.
  13. River retreat is the best accommodation we have stayed at views were wonderful and welcome pack of cream tea etc was great. Sept 2010.
