My husband and I stayed here for a few days using it as a base to see parts of Cornwall. The apartment has a small staircase by which to enter so it is not suitable if you have mobility issues. However, on entering, we were so surprised by the high standard of every aspect of this place... from the beautiful décor, high end appliances, comfortable bedding, overall cleanliness etc. The apartment is within walking distance of the town centre but there is quite a steep walk up the street on one's return so I would highly recommend having a car. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit the area.
This apartment has everything you need. It is a thoughtfully designed space that has all the mod cons. The washer/ dryer was a real blessing as we had been travelling & staying in B&Bs..Janice was very welcoming even down to the bottle of Aussie wine. We were able to explore parts of Cornwall using this wonderful apartment as our base.
Wonderful flat with a stunning view!!! Mark and Janice are great hosts! Perfect flat, a real home from home. Everything looks new. Very quiet and peacefull! Hope to come back soon!!!!
We came here for 3 nights, to visit The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan, like several previous reviewers - and, like them, we enjoyed our stay at the Gyllyl Flat. Very comfortable, very welcoming and very convenient too (nearest shops and eateries within 5 minutes walk, the centre of St Austell within 10.) With plenty more to explore in the area, we'd look to coming back here.
We stayed in the Gylly flat for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is truly a 5 Star holiday rental and is of exceptional standards.
It really does have everything for a short break or even longer. It has a large lounge diner area which has all mod cons for self catering.
The bedroom is also large and the bed is one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in.
The bathroom contains wash basin, heated towel rail, toilet and a very large shower ( which you won't want to get out of ! ).
The flat is a credit to the owners Jan and Mark,who are very friendly and helpful and the welcome pack of milk, Cornish cream and wine helped us to settle in straight away.
The flat is situated in a quiet hilly area so a car is a must. However it is is easy reach of the local attractions such as the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Haligan, St .Austell is in easy reach of places like St. Ives, Padstow, and Falmouth which makes the flat ideally situated.
We enjoyed it so much that we tend to come back next year again, only this time for just a little longer.
We can highly recommend the Gylly flat to anyone visiting the area. You will not be disappointed.
