Fabulous Retreat

  • 5 of 5

It exceeded our expectations! The location is great, it's close to Fowey yet tucked away in a tranquil landscape with expansive gardens and superb vistas. We sat on the patio in the sun and fed the resident ducks.The house has a large kitchen/diner which easily accommodated 30 of us for an engagement party. The lounge is vast and yet the efficient log burner made it very cosy for us in the evenings. The master bedroom is huge with views on three sides.Its a lovely haven for a large family or groups of friends.

First class property with

  • 5 of 5

We cannot praise the quality of The Old Watermill enough. The owners were fantastic at informing us of anything we needed in the area and the property itself was a real gem. Beautifully decorated for Christmas and it was completely equipped with everything we needed, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone and will look forward to returning there in the future.

Beautiful home,

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of five couples staying for a long weekend. It is a beautiful house, well presented with lovely furnishings, warm and very comfortable, well maintained and spotlessly clean. The description was more than accurate, it exceeded our (high) expectations. The instructions for the property and the advice and guidance on local services were clear and very useful. We would highly recommend this property to any couple or group that want to spoil themselves.

Great holiday in fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of eight plus toddler had a lovely week in the Old Watermill. The house was perfect for our group with enough space to spread out and also to congregate in the kitchen. The hosts had even set up a little fence to keep our little one away from the pond. We were very impressed with how well equipped the kitchen was. Every detail was perfect and the location is excellent, nice and peaceful but not too isolated and within easy reach of plenty of things to do. Fowey itself is a very nice town to visit and eat out in. Very highly recommended!

Simply put, the Old Watermill is stunning

  • 5 of 5

If we could pick this property up and transport it to North Lincolnshire we would! The accommodation was beautiful, well equipped, even for baking, and it was exceptionally clean throughout. Fabulous communications with the agent from the outset. The mature gardens were stunning and very private. Would definitely stay again if in the area and recommend it to anyone. The walk into Fowey was further than expected down a narrow lane and a bit unnerving, but we all had a fabulous time in the house.
