Amazing retreat for a bigger group!

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed a wonderful getaway over this last New Year just gone, at The Old Watermill. A fantastic property for our extended family group of 9. The living and dining space were ideal for the whole group and the additional snug a great touch for those who wished for some quiet time. The property was superbly presented and appointed. Clean, contemporary, stylish and welcoming, The Old Watermill had everyone feeling at home and relaxed and those who wished to go exploring afield, had plenty of walks to venture off on and things to do. The additional annexe Mill Cottage, was great with its own kitchenette and living space (ideal for a small family), although all our meals and relaxing were enjoyed together in the main house. The hamper of champagne, Cornish cream tea, home made loaves of bread, farm fresh eggs and fresh flowers, were a beautiful and unexpected touch...although very much enjoyed by all!! Carole and William were very thoughtful hosts when it came to everything and we all felt right at home in this property with everything we could have needed. Would love to return to The Old Watermill when next in Cornwall (from Australia) to enjoy more of its offerings, including the beautiful outdoor terrace which would be ideal in Summer.

William and Carole, you have a gorgeous, warm and welcoming home which was thoroughly enoyed by us all! THANK YOU...we will be back!

The Old Water Mill provides accommodation and facilities of outstanding quality.

The premises are furnished and equipped to an extremely high standard and considerable effort has been expended in paying attention to detail.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would book again.

Fantastic holiday location

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic location. No complains what so ever. The house and gardens are amazing, so well thought out and could be enjoyed whatever the weather. Our family of 8 - 3 generations and two dogs had a wonderful time at the Old Watermill and Cottage. Every thing was as described and didn't disappoint with lots of space for us all. The location was great with an energetic walk to Fowey and back. Loved every minute of it.

Thank you Bill and Carole for letting us have your wonderful house, so tastefully furnished and well equipped. The welcome pack was greatly appreciated. I felt sure that we will have a job to find anywhere as good for our next family trip. May not even bother to search but rebook instead.

Lovely place to stay just outside Fowey

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place to stay if you're looking for somewhere peaceful and beautifully situated just outside Fowey. It's not in the town or on the river, but this means it's surrounded by lovely gardens and countryside and completely unaffected by mass tourism. The property is very clean and well maintained and has every convenience you could possibly want with impressive attention to detail. The eating areas both inside and out were particularly attractive. We have no hesitation in recommending it.

Exceptional property

  • 5 of 5

The Old Watermill is an impressive, beautifully renovated old property, standing in a two acre garden, in the delightful small town of Fowey. It was the perfect holiday accommodation for our group of friends, (four couples). We had rented the Old Watermill and the attached cottage, so there was plenty of room for all of us.

On arrival, we were thrilled to find a charming, spotlessly clean and exceptionally well appointed holiday home. Everything we needed was provided - a special treat was the basket of essentials and goodies kindly provided by the owners Bill and Carole, that we found as we entered the kitchen.

We enjoyed sitting in the lounge with the log fire burning on a couple of chilly evenings and on a hot evening we used the BBQ in the garden and sat around the super-sized garden table enjoying our food, wine and the friendly ducks in the garden.

We were reluctant to leave at the end of the week and we hope we can all visit again one day.

There was plenty to do in the area but we specially enjoyed the Eden Project and a fish meal at Sam's on the Beach.

We were reluctant to leave at the end of the week and would certainly love to come back again some day.
