  • "House was perfectly clean and comfortable and very well-equipped (best we’ve stayed in in terms of kitchen implements etc."

    ) The location is great with a fantastic view. Drive tricky to park on with a very tight bend. Outdoor space can only be accessed through a bedroom or by going around the outside of the building. There was no information left about the property which would have been appreciated. Owners were lovely but very close for comfort - could be heard through the wall and very visible on site which at times made us feel a little uncomfortable.

  • "Rathillet is a lovely split-level accommodation with amazing views across the estuary from the lounge/diner and master bedroom."

    The home has a double bedroom and bathroom downstairs with little balcony. There are 2 further double bedrooms on the main level (one of which can be made up as a twin), along with a shower room and kitchen. The fittings and furnishings are of a very high standard and the home is very well equipped. Anna the owner is friendly and available if you have any queries. She provides lovely extra touches in toiletries, washing products and ensures milk and tea and coffee are there for your arrival. Rathillet is in a great spot for exploring. Truro is nearby with all its amenities as is Falmouth. You can easily visit the Roseland, as well as the Lizard and St Michael's Mount and other areas. The drive down is steep and took a bit of getting used to with a larger vehicle. However it wouldnt stop me coming again. We had a great week and hope to return. Would thoroughly recommend this property.

  • "We had a super week staying at Rathillet- the gorgeous weather helped too."

    A definite home from home with everything we needed (still no tin opener unfortunately). Only niggle from a personal view is the patio area can only be accessed from the downstairs bedroom.

  • "This is a fantastic house with outstanding views across the creek."

    We were so pleased that we managed to extend our stay. The equipment provided was exceptional, everything possible had been thought of and the scones, clotted cream and jam left for us was a lovely addition. The only thing missing was the information usually provided about operating the appliances. The house was so peaceful despite the building works across the road. You cannot see any of it when in the house as almost all the windows face the other way, ie over the creek, and we were not aware of any noise while we were there. Would thoroughly recommend.

  • "We thought the property was fitted out to a good standard, and the quality of the equipment was very good."

    We had a great time and the views from the property far exceeded what we expected from the descriptions We were disappointed that there was no guide to the property, the various appliances etc, and some hints about where to visit and eat.. We appreciate in the reaction to Covid such material was withdrawn, but surely it can be circulated as pdfs etc or stuck in laminated sheets. We were disappointed that the washing machine (almost new) didn't work. We accept that the "workaround" solution offered was very helpful. One minor point - we couldn't find a tin opener. Finally lovely comfortable beds, sheets and duvets

    Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased to hear you had a great time and have taken your comments on board about the property guide. We can confirm that the washing machine has since been repaired and the tin opener has been replaced. Property Owner

  • "Rathillet is beautifully situated with spectacular views across and down the creek."

    It is very well equipped, but it would be quite useful to have the usual folder of information about the property and its facilities.

  • "This is a beautiful and lovingly created place with beautiful views in a sensational part of Cornwall."

    We had a wonderful extended stay here. Nothing is too much trouble for the owner who is available but not intrusive at all. We are sad to leave and can’t wait to return.

    In a lovely setting and the view is amazing from the house over the creek. Everything you would need was in Rathillet that you could wish for. Highly recommend this property who wants peace and quiet ❤️❤️

  • "The house exceeded our expectations."

    The property was very well equipped, decoration and furnishings were excellent. We particularly liked the location close to Truro and views over the tidal creek. The owner was very helpful and friendly.

  • "We really enjoyed staying at Rathillet as it was so quiet and peaceful and had spectacular views across the river inlet."

    The accommodation was spacious, clean and comfortable and every utensil required for cooking our evening meals was provided and at hand. It was the perfect base to explore the many attractions in and around the area.

  • "We had an amazing week here."

    The house was clean with everything you needed to be a home from home. The beds were amazingly comfortable and we slept well as this is such a peaceful place. The home is in a beautiful quiet setting, overlooking the water. We loved being able to sit watching the tide going in and out. It feels remote but is only 15 mins to Truro and easy access to the rest of Cornwall. Trelissick gardens is nearby and King Harry’s ferry is a great way to get down to St Mawes for a visit. There is a lovely pub (The old Quay Inn) about 20mins walk away. The hosts were very helpful and accessible but were unobtrusive. It was a perfect place for our family to stay

  • "We booked at the last minute for a week at the end of August and were very impressed."

    The house is spacious, arranged over 2 levels with fantastic views from the upper level across the water. Well equipped with everything almost brand new and perfect for a family holiday ( 2 adults + 2 teenagers). The wifi was very fast so you could potentially decamp for a couple of weeks or longer to "wfh". As mentioned there is building work across the street but the noise was minimal and no issue for us. The owner lives next door and was very pleasant and helpful. We used the house as a base to explore and drove to various beaches and further south. The fish shop at Mylor is a real find - recommended. Overall we had a great holiday and would definitely recommend the house.

The property

Truro 4.5 miles.

Nestled on the outskirts of Feock, close to the attractions of Truro, lies this wonderful creekside property, Rathillet.

Enjoying an elevated position with views over Restronguet Creek, this delightful holiday home is a lovely choice for families and friends to come together and enjoy Cornwall.

Park up on the driveway on arrival and enter into the property, finding the bright and airy living/dining room, where you can sink into the sofas and catch up on your favourite shows, or settle down for dinner at the dining table, taking in the creekside views as you tuck into a hearty meal.

The kitchen is where these meals can be prepared, hosting an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and even a dishwasher, so you won’t have to a lift a finger when it comes to washing up!

Step out onto the decked balcony and enjoy a drink amidst the last of the evening sun, while there is also a patio area and sun terrace on the lower-ground floor, offering garden furniture and a small lawned area.

Freshen up in the family bathroom, where a bath and shower over awaits you, along with a heated towel rail, basin and WC.

Find the bedrooms as you begin to tire, offering a super-king-size and twin room (can be super-king on request) on the ground floor, while down a set of stairs awaits a king-size double with access to the sun terrace, each providing fitted storage and fresh white bed linen.

From the property, Loe beach is just a short walk away, where you can find a café, as well as a sailing and windsurfing school from Easter to the end of September, offering a full and comprehensive programme of tuition for all water sports along with equipment hire.

Venture to the stunning gardens of Trelissick, owned by the National Trust, before visiting The King Harry Ferry where you can quickly reach The Roseland Peninsula and enjoy its golden beaches, beautiful landscapes and attractions at St Mawes.

Truro’s vibrant centre is not far away, brimming with excellent shopping, eating and drinking spots, as well as a striking array of architecture and a cathedral to marvel upon.

Once those are complete, the popular resorts of St Agnes and Falmouth are certainly worth a visit.

Rathillet is a fabulous base for uncovering Cornish attractions, whatever time of year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

St Agnes 8.6 miles; Falmouth 11 miles; Redruth 11.5 miles, Newquay 13.6 miles, Eden Project 18 miles, Lizard Peninsula 18 miles, St Ives 25 miles, Land's End 36 miles..

Truro is the retail centre of Cornwall with a good range of independent shops as well as national stores all within a compact city centre. With its eclectic range of art galleries, bars, restaurants, cinema, theatre, museum and outstanding cathedral this small city is a superb year round destination. Steeped in history and intriguing architecture there is always plenty to do and see. Just meandering through the Georgian cobbled streets is a pleasure in itself.

A wonderful day trip can be had from Truro to Falmouth along the stunning Fal estuary with many options to disembark and pick up the boat later along the scenic river trip.
