Newquay & St Austell House Rental Photos and Description

Superb views and open fire - ideal for all seasons

Nestled alongside the beautiful River Fowey, with Heligan Gardens, the Eden Project and the picturesque harbours of Fowey and Mevagissey all within easy driving distance, Kiln Cottage lies only a stone’s throw from the water’s edge in the sleepy village of Golant. It commands wonderful river views from almost every room. Approached across the terrace, now covering the old lime kiln, the spacious cottage has been tastefully renovated with a blend of antique and modern furnishings. The maple-built kitchen (with traditional low beams in places) has stairs to the comfortable sitting/dining-room where a magnificent picture window is perfect for watching the comings and goings on the river. On the top floor the master bedroom and bathroom have spectacular views over the moorings on the river.

Driving Instructions: Driving along the A380 towards St Austell, take the B3269 left, which is signposted to Fowey (it also has a signpost to the Hidden Valley Gardens).

Continue along the B3269, after about 3 miles you'll come to some pale-green/white farm buildings followed shortly by a staggered crossroad, take the left turning signposted to Golant.

Keep following this road towards the river, at the waterfront it turns to the right, continue past the no through-fare sign, Kiln Cottage drive is less than a hundred yards on the right.

Riverside house with open fires and panoramic views
average rating of 5.0 based on 6 reviews

It'a a lovely house in an amazing place.

  • 5 of 5

It's a beautiful house with amazing views from de sofá to the river. It has everything you need and anything you need Judith is ready to provide it. When we arrived we found a lot of details that Judith has prepared for us (delicious scones, chocolates, cake, wine ...)

There are two bathrooms, but only one of them has a shower, so we have to share it in the morning. It took a long time to be ready because we were five people and sometimes we haven't enough hot water.

For two miles the road to get there it's very narrow so two cars don't pass at the same time. You have to drive carefully.

But anyway it's a nice place to stay. And the quietness is guaranteed.

Owner's Response: Mary, Many thanks for your thoughtful and kind comments, I am sorry that you had some issues with the hot water, there is a separate system for the hot water in both bathrooms ensuring that there is always plenty of hot water - this is controlled by a switch in the lower bathroom which may not have been on. My fault I should have double checked, thanks for the feedback on this and I will make sure that it is always on in the future. Hope to see you again - it was smashing to meet you all. With best wishes, Judith

A wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Kiln Cottage. All the facilities were as advertised and the house was extremely well equipped with all the home comforts!

The views were breathtaking and the village sweet, and we made great use of the children's park a few minutes' walk away.

We will definitely return!

The Happy Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Kiln Cottage is the rare and beautiful holiday property one hopes to find, set in the peaceful and quiet village of Golant. It is decorated with love, taste and care, we believe it is the best accommodation we have ever stayed in. The picture windows in the lounge and top bedroom give views of the estuary which are stunning and there is always something to watch. Kiln Cottage is spotless and Judith's welcome is extremely warm and friendly. The home made scones, jam and cream, bread and lemonade are delicious. Every item you could possibly need is catered for and Judith is always available to help if you need her.We would recommend the property to everyone.

Kiln Cottage Golant Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this property to anyone, it was so clean and comfortable. The views from every room fantastic and so tranquil. The kitchen more than adequately equipped in chine, cutlery and cooking utensils. The welcome cornish tea was superb pls extra needy bitsa in the fridge. Judith, the proprietor had thought of everything to make you feel welcome. We will all definitely look forward to our next visit. Thankyou Judith for making our holiday a very pleasant one, it was lovely to meet you. See you in the near future once again. Regards from Janet Hollingworth and family, France

Kiln Cottage, Golant

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for a week over the Easter break and couldn't have asked for more from it and the views are amazing! Golant is a lovely little village and you are ideally situated to visit so many other lovely towns, attractions etc and all within a c. 30 minute drive. The cottage was spotless and the owner really spoilt us by leaving freshly homemade scones and bread - both of which were delicious and so very kind - she really does go the extra mile and we would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her and her property to anyone. We hope to return many many times!

Fantastic Cottage in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We could not recommend this cottage highly enough. It was perfect in every sense for our holiday with our toddler in September.

The cottage was very well equipped and extremely comfortable. When we arrived the owner had kindly lit the fire and provided us with an amazing spread of food, after our long journey on the Friday night. The location is perfect, on the edge of the river and the views are spectacular. If the weather had been a little better we would have utilised the garden more but it was a very tranquil place to sit and relax.

The owner was very kind and helpful and we would love to return again next year.

Restaurants, pubs and stunning scenery are within walking distance, while sandy beaches, historical sites such as Restormel Castle and Lanhydrock House and the famous Eden Project are a short drive away.

In Summertime there’s a range of activities and even in high summer the village of Golant remains one of Cornwall’s best-kept secrets as a peaceful waterside retreat. Autumn & Winter holidays are popular too, with the nearby oyster festival and Christmas & New Year celebrations. Golant is an ancient fishing village on the Fowey River Estuary, just two miles from Fowey. The area is steeped in fascinating history, with the last battle between Cromwell's army and the Royalists having taken place nearby in 1644 and many of Daphne du Maurier's novels set in the vicinity.

This stretch of the Fowey River is equally famous as the inspiration for Kenneth Graham's, The Wind In The Willows.
