  • "One of the best cottages we have stayed in; great location, very clean and helpful owner."

    I'd especially recommend this cottage if you have a dog - a large meadow right outside the gate is ideal. We will be re-booking

  • "We had a fantastic time with our two small children - the outdoor space was stunning!"

  • "This was a lovely, cosy, interesting house in a really beautiful location."

    We had lots of space for our family, a big sitting room with a wood burner and lazy boy sofas which our kids loved. Upstairs there were good sized bedrooms with comfortable beds and lots of storage. Outside there was ample parking for our very large family car and great gardens. The location was absolutely great. Golant is a hidden gem which is very close to beautiful Fowey. We will definitely be back for a summer break with our wider family (there is another house right next door that can also be rented) and our kayaks and paddle boards.

    The cottage was charming and well fitted out. The garden was enclosed as specified and the field just outside was ideal for exercising the dogs before and after our days out. Would highly recommend and the owner was very welcoming and helpful. We will definitely be returning!

    The cottage was just right for us and the enclosed garden and field were ideal for our dog. It is certainly a beautiful area and we loved it. We visited some of the National Trust houses and gardens which were wonderful. Lots of walking in superb woods, amazing trees and just so relaxing.

  • "Great central location for getting around many parts of Cornwall all under an hours drive."

    Very peaceful and quiet location and the owner is very helpful and on hand if needed. Really enjoyed our two weeks here really nice cottage had everything we needed. Great for the dog who enjoyed walking in the adjacent meadow to the cottage. Only thing that let it down was the quality of the WiFi which was intermittent and had a very weak signal at times.

  • "There was lots to do in the local area."

    The cottage was a lovely size and extremely quiet and relaxing. It was a fair jaunt to the local pub/restaurant and along unlit roads or paths so you either drive or stay in, which we enjoyed as we entertained ourselves. There was wi-fi although it proved unable to cope at times and there was no mobile signal - ok if you want to get away from it all. The owners were on site and extremely friendly and helpful. There were some lovely walks in the area and a good area in front of the cottage for walking the dogs. We came away after the holiday extremely relaxed and had some great sleeping due to it being so quiet and no light pollution.

    Our Parsons Russell absolutely loved the field opposite the property where she ran and ran. An ideal location for exploring Poldark, Doc Martin and Rick Stein territory amongst other places. A delightful place and Terry and Sarah-Jayne were so welcoming and friendly. A very pleasant week was had by all.

  • "Excellent cottage for families or couples with dogs."

    Sarah Jayne and Terry were very helpful and welcoming. Such a characterful cottage in a gorgeous setting, we really appreciated the peace and tranquility of Golant whilst being close enough to Fowey to be able to enjoy everything it has to offer. Our dog loved having her own field to play in before heading off in search of Mr Toad, Ratty and Mole along the Fowey estuary! We would love to go back and stay there again one day.

The property

One of the two Hybadore holiday cottages, The Old Winery is a spacious barn conversion complete with exposed stonework, beams and a woodburner adding to the character.

The setting could hardly be improved upon.

In the idyllic sleepy riverside village of Golant yet only 3 miles from the bustling beautiful yachting town of Fowey, this is a place to really get away from all the pressures and pace of everyday life.

You enter the cottage into the spacious stone floored hallway, kick off your boots and go through into the cosy living room which adjoins the kitchen.

There are 2 bedrooms here, a double and a twin which along with the bathroom are on the first floor.

With a choice of so many walks straight from the door, a gentle amble down the riverbank or a more strenuous bur most enjoyable walk along the Saints Way linking Fowey to Padstow there will always be lots to do and explore here.

Without a doubt the best way to see the river is to book a canoe or kayak trip from the village.

Whatever the age or experience you will be well catered for and enjoy a day to remember.For a more relaxing day, the large enclosed garden is perfect for al fresco dining whilst the surrounding private meadows offer perfect picnic spots .

A beautiful most comfortable cottage in a stunning location that can be enjoyed all year round.Note: This property can be a let alongside side ref 963322 and ref 961598 - in total these properties can sleep 22.
