    Clean, comfortable and well equipped, plus a lovely seating area outside to enjoy the sunshine. Perfect place for a couple who just want to get away and chill out yet close enough to some lovely places to visit.

    The patio gets the sun all day. The cottage had everything we needed. Lovely fish and chips from Loswithiel and a lovely pub meal at The Fishermans Arms in Golant. The location is ideal, stunning beaches like Lantic beach and Menabily (Polridmouth Cove) nearby which are dog friendly. Thank you to our wonderful friendly hosts and their two dogs.

    The owners were very helpful when we had queries and provided us with lots of information about local walks. The cream tea and bottle of cornish wine on arrival was very appreciated. The cottage itself is spacious and has all the facilities you would need (including a full set of cookware which is not always the case with holiday cottages).

    The location is attractive and very convenient for exploring the area by car. The owners were very welcoming and we would happily go back. My only complaint is that the Sykes Feedback Form does not appear to work properly in Safari on iPad so that I've had to complete it twice!

  • "A lovely property."

    Very clean and well equipped. Stunning peaceful locality about 5 mins from Lostwithiel. The hosts were very friendly and provided a bottle of wine, scones and clotted cream on arrival. There are 2 other properties as well as the owners property on the farmstead but we hardly ever saw anybody. Dogs are very welcome and are able to walk in the extensive fields adjoining the property. Lovely outlook from the sitting area and a sheltered patio area. Ideally located for access to both coast and country. Highly recommended.

  • "Excellent hosts and accomodation was superb."

    However Sykes cottages failed to mention that there are also 2 other cottages on site plus the field is available for caravan holidays. I was led to believe by your advertising /description that only one holiday accomodation was on site thinking we would experience some tranquility- the reason for choosing Wagon House. Unfortunately other families with children were on site so we didn't have the tranquility we were expecting.We do not travel alot. It was disappointing. I would welcome some feedback and possibly some compensation . We are currently in Bristol - breaking up our journey back to the Midlands. Many thanks Maria Dennis.

  • "The owners are amazing as I contacted them to arranged keys they were very helpful."

    I arrived to scones and a few lovely goodies. I loved The Wagon House because it had a beautiful view with patio doors and it had everything you could need for a single person like me and a dog to a couple or even two friends as the beds are link to make a super king or can be separated. I took a lot of things for cooking and they had thought of everything! I will be going again but won’t take as much stuff for kitchen need time! The Wagon House is a single storey (bungalow type) and detached small cottage set within the owners own home with has sheep, a pony, two dogs and 9 acres with beautiful ponds. I thought the area fabulous to travel around Cornwall. I want to thank the owners for being so helpful and the kindness given. I would recommend this cottage.

    It is said of the British weather that you can have four seasons in one day and in the week we experienced all four. Never mind you can not change the weather. The Wagon house was as before, excellent in all details and Dottie enjoyed her twice daily walk around the fields, being fascinated by the Rudd in one of the ponds. A super base to enjoy the wonders of Cornwall.

  • "Did not know that we were sharing the grounds with other holidaymakers."

    This is not the first time this has happened. We knew by the pictures that something was being hidden and only found out 2 days before that there were 2 other holiday lets on the property. I wish that you would be more honest about your descriptions. It is fortunate that we shared with two other couples who kept themselves to themselves and we had privacy facing away from them. We live in the middle of nowhere on a farm and we are not used to neighbours so we are always looking for a cottage away from everyone. Surely we cannot be the only couple who ask for this. I would like to add however that the landlords were excellent and we thought that the cottage was very well equipped and in excellent condition. It's the fact that there is more than one property on the land that stops us from returning there.

  • "Positive - Wagon house excellent in everything describe."

    Being allowed to walk around the property's fields with the dog was a very BIG plus. Welcome gifts an added bonus. Summing up a great comfortable base in all weathers, to explore a beautiful county. Negative - Perhaps it was just us, but a beast of a place to find. Perhaps the inclusion of Tanhouse Road in the address, added with the postcode, would help the Sat-Nav, find the location, as unnamed road in Sweethouse, leads you on a not so merry chase. Also you would be brave or foolhardy, to attempt the mile or so walk, along the road from the property to Lostwithiel.

    The cottage is in a lovely ,peaceful location which is in a good position close to lots of places of interest. We visited Polperro which is a quaint,fishing village well worth a visit. We had a look at some Poldark filming locations of which Holywell Bay on the north coast impressed us the most. One of the best beaches we have been to and dog friendly as well. Polruan, Fowey, Redruth and the Jamaica Inn were all visited and enjoyed as well. A big thank you to Ed and Nicky for welcoming us to this delightful cottage which has everything you could possibly need. We would loved to have lit the wood burner but it was too mild really. Many thanks for the cream tea and wine, very welcoming. We hope to return sometime in the near future. Val and Martyn and Daisy the lab.

About the location


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.
