“An ideal base for exploring Cornwall”
Reviewed 14 June 2016 for a stay in April 2016

people found this review helpful

This property in Lostwithiel was rented by a friend who is walking the South-West Coastpath. Although it is a little way inland it is on the River Fowey at the tidal limit, and the river flows alongside the property. The complex of which it is a part is a very sympathetic conversion of Brunel's carriage-works keeping the exterior as it was but turning the accommodation into very modern and comfortable units. It is both 5 minutes from the town centre and 2 minutes from the mainline train station. All facilities are high spec and the rooms are light and airy. It has a delightful patio at the back close to the river in a tranquil setting. The property is on three floors so most rooms have a lovely outlook enhanced by the trees along the river. We found it ideal for walking the South Cornwall coast path and it is quite close to the Eden Project and Heligan. Many Cornish towns and Plymouth can be reached with little effort by taking the train.

The village is beautiful, people very friendly good variety of shops on doorstep.
The River Fowey is centre of village life wonderful to see children as well as adults enjoying the river.

House was fantastic. Attention to detail was amazing, absolutely everything you could possibly need and more. House spotlessly clean.
Lostwithiel is a good base as it is in a central position and is a lovely village with plenty of places to eat. Highly recommend 'The Globe' pub, two minute walk and amazing food.
House useful for the station and whilst the trains didn't bother us, possibly could in the summer with windows open and especially if a light sleeper. Being on the river was lovely, can imagine great in the summer as small 'beach' area that would be great for younger children.
Owner was extremely attentive and left thoughtful welcome basket .

Thank you for your review. Lostwithiel though small does seem to have a good variety of shops and restaurants. As you mentioned the station is close and so far the reviews of proximity have been positive for transport link rather than negative. Delighted you found the house a good base and i hope to welcome you down on another occasion.

“Lovely Holiday House - Will Return”
Reviewed 12 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We had a fantastic week in Lostwithiel. The house is very well equipped with comfortable beds and lovely furnishings. Wifi is superfast and mobile coverage excellent - two critical matters when holidaying with technology savvy children! Having a private parking space right outside the house was another bonus. The town of Lostwithiel is very well provided for in terms of eating out and self catering. There is a butcher, deli and a decent sized coop as well as numerous cafes and restaurants. All in all it is a very easy place to relax and enjoy.

I have been coming to the moorings for 6 years now and will be making it seven with my family in 2016.The house is in a fantastic location to tour all Cornwall,s attractions.
The house itself is beautifully decorated and maintained.
The owner Vivienne has thought of everything, there is nothing missing that you need and the cleaners have the place in a immaculate condition every year. Its like walking into a brand new home every year.
I would personally recommend this property to anybody .

“A truly stunning property”
Reviewed 4 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

people found this review helpful

We stayed here in June 2015 and we couldn't have been happier. The property is beautifully furnished and truly well equipped, there was nothing extra that we needed. With ample bathrooms and a loo on each floor, what more could I say. The bedrooms are well thought out and there was plenty of storage. The beds are to die for, so comfortable, and I am a bad sleeper. It is situated by the railway, but the trains didn't bother us at all. Just a few steps to walk into the village and good public transport links. With the railway on side side of the property and the stunning river view on the other, there is very little passing traffic. Well situated for visiting The Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, CharlesTown and the fabulous Mevagissey. We do so hope that we can return.

We LOVE Lostwithiel and keep returning to Brunel Quays.When planning our most recent trip we encountered a slight setback as the two houses we have stayed at before were both unavailable: consequently we ended up booking the more expensive property “the Moorings”.

Although the houses appear identical from the outside , “The Moorings” proved to be very different.This house really does have the WOW factor and certainly isn't your normal holiday accomodation.A contemporary yet comfortable house , immaculately clean and well equipped.With its high spec furnishings and fittings it was more “boutique” than we are used to and we loved it .

“The Moorings” certainly does provide MORE -it is a shame we hadnt found this place sooner .We are about to book for this summer and we know where we will be staying.

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write such kind words about the property.
People often comment on how different the houses are in this small development, not only the furnishings but in the lay out of rooms.
I am delighted the house suited you and your family and hope that one day you do return to The Moorings. V
