    “Good points *Lovely location *The cleaners have tried their best with the raw materials given Bad points This place is shocking.”

    I reckon it was refurbished in the early 90s and nothing has been done to it since. There is an air of decay about the place. There is mould growing in the bathroom and an all-pervasive smell of damp in the property. The shower is shocking, it was so bad I measured the flow rate at 2 litres per minute- that's one kettle poured over you every minute. The shower screen didn't fit properly and was missing rubber trims so most of this water ended up on the floor. The kitchen was also tired. No bin, ...

    I reckon it was refurbished in the early 90s and nothing has been done to it since. There is an air of decay about the place. There is mould growing in the bathroom and an all-pervasive smell of damp in the property. The shower is shocking, it was so bad I measured the flow rate at 2 litres per minute- that's one kettle poured over you every minute. The shower screen didn't fit properly and was missing rubber trims so most of this water ended up on the floor. The kitchen was also tired. No bin, so all items had to be thrown in the black bin outside (no recycling facilities), the solid top cooker was so old that the hob labels had been rubbed off, so it was 'check each one by touching' to work out which one was on. Oh, and the toaster was broken. I'm pretty sure the water in the hot tub had been changed from the previous people as there was rubbish at the bottom of it. There did not appear to be any concession to Covid-19. There was no WiFi (which I guess is my fault for not checking) and there was no 4G for both EE and O2. There was no information provided by the owner, no instruction manuals, guides, or information whatsoever. My biggest concern was my families safety. The fire extinguisher was supplied in 1994 and last checked in 2003. It is a legal requirement to service them every year, and have a full-on service every 10 years. If the business owner can not be bothered to do this, what other checks have they skimped on? I'm not an electrician but the modified meter (with a handwritten 'Do not touch' sign on it) and fuse box also looked like they needed checking too. In summary If you want to step back in time to a place where you can play your VHS, chuckle at the Latin script on your sofa, love the smell of damp, read your saved copies of the Today newspaper and not worry about those health and safety zealots ruining your life- this is the place for you. (I must apologise as I tuned the TV so you now get more than 5 channels that were available at the start of our stay). If, on the other hand, you care about safety, the environment, checking emails or surfing the web, luxuriating in a shower with plenty of water, and all things you would expect from a cottage at this price- GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!

About the location

LOSTWITHIEL

Bodmin 5.5 miles; Fowey 7 miles.

A delightfully peaceful country town, nestling in the Fowey river valley amid the woods and fields that characterise the area. Renowned as a centre for the antiques trade, there are several shops and dealers in the town, as well as a fine collection of country pubs, restaurants and a thriving farmer’s market. Lanhydrock House (NT) and gardens is just 3 miles away, while the fabulous Boconnoc House, Eden Project, shipwreck museum and tall ships harbour at Charlestown, and the picturesque fishing villages of Mevagissey, Fowey and Padstow, with the famous Rick Stein restaurants, are all within easy driving distance. The tumbling Atlantic surf, long sandy beaches and dramatic coastline of the north coast, including at the renowned Newquay, make for great days out and there is also chance to enjoy river canoeing, biking, hiking and leisurely walks in this lovely area. The friendly locals also have ongoing activities, such as the raft race, the famous tug of war, Carnival week and seagull outboard motor races. The river Fowey runs from the town on its 8 mile journey through the fields and wooded valleys to the gentler southern coast, a natural paradise for those who love the sea. Centrally placed, with much to do and see in the immediate area, Lostwithiel is the perfect choice for those seeking a break away from the hectic pace of the tourist resorts.
