  • "Treetops was absolutely lovely."

    The views were amazing. The kitchen was beautiful. We instantly wanted to book again ! but unfortunately the mattresses let it down for us. Too soft and no support, I appreciate everyone has their own preference but imo they need replacing. Truly gutted as we would loved to have returned.

    Beautiful views over the river and despite not the best weather, we enjoyed sitting on the balcony several mornings in the sun. Had a lovely Sunday roast in the Fisherman's Arms down the hill, very friendly staff. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and will stay again. (Four year gap due to Covid cancellation s)

    The view from Tree Tops is wonderful and there are all the facilities you need in the bungalow. Golant is a lovely village and the Fisherman’s Arms does excellent food. This is one of the best properties we have stayed in and have rebooked for next year.

  • "When we arrived at Treetops, we were overwhelmed by the tranquility of Golant and the beautiful views overlooking the creek and the river from the property!"

    Treetops was everything we wanted for our holiday. It was lovely and clean and the kitchen was very well equipped and of course the views were to die for from the kitchen, lounge and two double bedrooms. The village of Golant is very quaint and the village pub The Fishermas Inn, serves lovely food and overlooks the creek and river and has a very large garden with plenty of seating. It’s best not to leave your car on the road in front of the pub at high tide, because it is likely to flood. It is only a very short walk from Treetops to the pub, but it’s very steep and I am disabled and couldn’t manage the walk unfortunately ☹️ We can definitely recommend Treetops and hopefully will come back for another holiday there if finances and health allow!

    Didn't want for anything while we were there. The view is amazing, just sat with my morning cup of tea watching the boats on the river was just wonderful, I am going to miss that view. I really can't find any fault with my stay at treetops, cornwall is a lovely part of the country and I look forward to going back one day.

  • "The location was excellent, great view just as per listing, pub fantastic a 2 minute walk from the property."

    Parking good fro property once you get used to the narrow roads. Ideal place for visiting Eden project, Lost gardens of Heligan and other tourist attractions. Fowey really lovely not far away once you get used to parking and waling the steep steps. Property had everything you needed for a holiday, things that could be improved would be a place to eat out on the decking, the sofa in the living room has seen better days really uncomfortable as was the bed in the main bedroom. One if us ended up sleeping in the spare room, as mattress too uncomfortable. The fridge door also needs addressing, as a note saying shut the door is fine, but I am sure could be fixed quite easily.Those things never spoilt the holiday, however would be good to address for future guests. Still would recommend visiting.

    The kitchen was fantastic and we enjoyed many meals on the patio overlooking the river below. Having two bathrooms was a bonus for a family stay. Once you've got the hang of the very narrow roads in the village, a relaxing holiday is assured.

    well furnished and equipped with all anyone could possibly need for a good holiday. The stylish kitchen was my favourite, nothing was missing and once again beautiful views. Our only problem was the TV in the lounge it was very hit and miss, sometimes it worked first time and sometimes it didn't and several times it came on again after we had gone to bed so we switched it off at the plug. We loved the place so much that we have booked Treetops again for October, lets hope for a new TV!

    We stayed in Oct 20 so the village was lovely and quiet and even with some Oct rain we got some great walks in. The views of the river are great and I can only imagine what fantastic evenings you could have outside sipping a glass of wine on the decking in the summer months.

    Also the grill in the Belling cooker does't appear to reach a higher enough temperature to cook anything, otherwise, it's a magical cottage with stunning views, and I would certainly book it again.
