  • "Just back from a fabulous week at Old Winery Cottage - our two dogs loved the garden ( totally secure) and having the use of the field opposite is such a wonderful bonus - dog heaven !"

    Cottage was very well equipped and owners are on site if needed. Our first trip to this part of Cornwall - there’s lots to see , and we plan to come back soon .

  • "What a wonderful cottage; well presented, with beams and slate flint walls."

    Bed was comfortable, kitchen well appointed and included a washing machine but no dishwasher; downstairs loo was fine, and the upstairs bathroom was well appointed with shower but no bath. Main bedroom cupboard had a rather distressing smell, with a few dead bugs. Wonderful fenced off garden, not even our ace-escape artist dogs could find a way out. Property faces onto a large meadow, ideal for the dogs; the rear of the property faces into what was once a farm yard; longish driveway and plenty of parking space. A couple of little niggles: TV is far too small, the floors were sticky (everywhere else was sparkly clean). The ten minute walk down the local pub is indeed ten minutes down a very steep hill; the one hour plus slow walk up, with multiple stops is challenging - especially when full of fish and chips :) Overall highly recommended accomodation in a beautiful part of the country!

  • "Fantastic stay at the Old Winery Cottage in Golant."

    We loved the size of the cottage, the large garden which attracted many butterflies, and our cocker spaniel loved the meadow. Very well equipped cottage with all the essentials. The Fisherman Arms is a short away down the hill, and the fish there is exceptional, as are the views of the River Fowey. We would definitely recommend this cottage and area of outstanding natural beauty.

  • "This was our second visit to this property this year and I am sure we will back again too!"

    Lovely place, comfortable (and a fantastic shower!), clean, ideally placed for anywhere you want to go and a wonderfully secure garden for the dogs, alongside the field opposite the garden gate, which the dogs loved. We had the pleasure of meeting Sarah-Jane whilst we were there this time and she was lovely and gave us plenty of tips on where to go locally. Mt friend and I look forward to returning many more times in the future.

The location is great with Golant being a lovely village with a great friendly pub that serves good food and has a lovely view of the river. Par beach is close by and it is very easy to visit surrounding areas from this location. Our second time here and we will definitely be back!

  • "A wonderful stay and the pictures do not do the property justice."

    Very clean, comfortable and has everything you could need. The garden is secure for the dogs and the field opposite the gate, with lovely views, was very welcome for a quick morning walk with the dogs before heading out for the day. Lounge was comfortable and the recliner sofas very welcome after a long day of walking! Internet access is intermittent, sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't, but this was no great shame to 'switch off' off for a while and a quick stroll up the garden path ensured mobile data could connect if needed. Overall, a great place for exploring - never more than an hour away from all the places we wanted to go. Loved it so much we have already booked to go back in June!

    The hosts were really prompt in responding to our queries. The cottage was very cosy, clean and was well stocked. Sadly they could do nothing about the awful weather but that made it even more pleasurable having such a cosy retreat to return to after a day out. We would definitely stay again! Thank you.

  • "Spacious and set in beautiful grounds with stunning views."

    Generally clean apart from a ball of hair behind door in double bedroom. Damp, musty smell near wooden dresser in lounge area which made sitting on the sofa nearby quite unpleasant. We had problems finding the refuse bags we were supposed to put the bedding and towels in so apologies to owners. Perhaps they, along with the recycling bags could have been left out as recycling instructions also unclear. Good pub recommendations so thanks.

  • "Another happy stay at a Sykes Holiday cottage."

    It was very well located and ticked all the boxes. A couple of comments about the property. We couldn't get the TV to work (Mum happy about this - the rest of the family less so); the odd light bulb missing in the standing lamps and very creaky bed in twin room (the one nearest the door) and some pretty creaky pipes in the small hours. Otherwise it was well equipped and had everything we needed. A lovely part of Cornwall. Thank you to the owners and to Sykes Cottages.

    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 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.

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.
