1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The peace. The cottage is excellent, very well equipped and in an idyllic setting for getting away from it all and relaxing. We really switched off from the London rat race!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

It's not easy walking distance into Fowey although we did try it there and back one evening with a 3 year old (it wasn't easy!), It's a mile walk through narrow country lanes to the edge of Fowey and probably another 1/4 mine or more in to the center of town, and so a car is essential which isn't great for the environment. We did however book local taxis which were 7 one way in to Fowey so it wasn't a problem for us.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

It had solar panels on the roof which was good.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Very good.

We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay and that you regarded the cottage excellent. We are sorry you found the walk difficult into Fowey. It is important to note the accommodation owner recommends that the property is suitable for children 12 and over. Many thanks for your review and we are glad you enjoyed this idyllic setting. Kind Regards Responsible Travel.

Colin was a great host making us both feel very welcome.We were both blown away by the beautiful interior and finishing touches here,it was stunning. Enjoyed the lovely features such as the underfloor heating, jacuzzi bath with TV,walk in shower,huge comfortable bed and the thoughtful items on arrival. The facilities and features were outstanding along with the decor.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

It is ideal for summer or winter breaks.15 minutes drive from Eden and not far from St Austell.The walks along the river Fowey are stunning,visited the little church on the top of the hill(walk with a legend attached recommended by Colin).Fowey itself was a 5 minute drive (2 large car parks on way in).Could walk through country roads.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Lots of unusual little shops for good quality vacation nik naks ran by local people. Boat trips in local area (Ferry).Views from accommodation were stunning but also private. The hosts were keen on the recycling aspect and the accommodation was very tastefully done.Enjoyed also the book around the building of house and also recommended places to visit with plenty of maps and suggestions around the local area.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Everything about it was above expectation, we absolutely could not fault it!!We would not hesitate to visit again.Thanks for such a lovely weekend great host, great accommodation,great location,would recommend this place to friends and family.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

On the first evening we parked the car in the car park of Fowey and walked through the old town to discover amazing views of this busy estuary and wonderful waterside locations to eat. The cottage exceeded our expectations. We could have happily stayed there for much longer whatever the weather conditions.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be prepared to pay for parking for any journey into Fowey including even to purchase groceries from the small shop there. If you intend to walk along the narrow lanes between the cottage and Fowey be aware that there are no footpaths and fluorescent clothing is essential.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Our visit benefited the tourism industry of the area. We did not choose this vacation because of environmental impact but are happy that the cottage is being run sympathetically.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It is a lovely high spec cottage in a beautiful area. We were very sad to leave and we would be very happy to return or recommend it to friends.

review 20 Jul 2013

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Restorative peace and quiet; the attention to detail in providing good facilities and information for guests by the owner.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Allow time to relax as part of your vacation. A fan for unusually hot nights may be useful in combination with leaving the balcony door open (it feels safe to do so). Flush the jacuzzi with a false fill before using to remove sediment which might come out of the jet pipes.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, by buying and eating locally; many walks in the area - you don't need to drive to see things; wild areas of garden around property encourages wildlife and bees used crevices in the warm walls of the barn to rest in.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent

review 13 May 2013

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The extremely comfortable accommodation at peaceful White Willow and the wonderful walks nearby - on part of the Saints' Way to St Sampsons Church and the Hall Walk with its little ferry rides and wonderful views.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Allow time to enjoy relaxing at Coriander Cottages as well as exploring the village, walking and visiting the famous gardens nearby.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes particularly the innovative heating system using geothermal heat. Also there is interesting educative information regarding local wildlife and the opportunity to support associated organisations.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

All the elements for a delightful vacation were there. We had returned after enjoying our previous stay and would do so more often if we did not live so far away.
