“Amazing holiday home in Fowey, Cornwall!”

The Old Watermill in Fowey is an amazing holiday destination. The property is decorated to a very high standard and is equipped with absolutely everything you need to enjoy a stress free holiday. There were ten people in our group but we had ample space, and could quite easily accommodate group meals in the kitchen. There was space enough for 5 cars in the driveway, however do be slightly vigilant on the single lane road up to the house.

It is only a 20 minute walk from the house into Fowey, which makes going for a boozy Sunday roast really easy! It also means that all of the walks from Fowey are within easy access. When you get back to the house after a good afternoon on the SW Coastpath you can get the magnificent log burner going in the main reception room, or in summer i'm sure a cold beer on the patio overlooking the millpond would be just as good!

Do not hesitate to book The Old Watermill!

This holiday home is perfect in every way. We couldn't have asked for more. The house is spotlessly clean, furnished to very high standards and the kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly want or need. We had 2 small children in our group and the outside space is fantastic for them to run around. We loved the gift basket with scones, cream, jam and lots more. We really didn't want to leave and can recommend this property as truly the best we have ever stayed in. Many thanks to the housekeeping lady for her kindness.

“Watermill wonder!”

My partner Jeff and I fell upon this wonderful 300 yr old property quite by accident - and how lucky were we that we did! Literally driving up to the gate and being met by a very personable Bill who very quickly had us settled into a beautiful upstairs/downstairs suite with everything brand new and expertly fitted out to suit everyones needs. You just could not want for anything more. Carol saw to our every need and together they made us feel very welcome and we felt we could have stayed forever! We wish Carol. Bill and Emily [hope the birthday went off well!] all the very best and congratulations on a job well done! We will of course reccommend the Watermill to all our friends travelling from Australia. Thank you for such a wonderful short but enjoyable stay. 10 out of 10 you two! x

“Splendour on the Saints' Way”

A week-long visit to the beautiful town of Fowey with day trips to the sights of the South Cornwall Coast was thoroughly enhanced by our residence at the Old Watermill.

Our party of ten - spanning three generations and seventy years - was catered for with space and convenience in this luxuriously-appointed home. Recently renovated, the 300-year old walls fuse seamlessly with modern extensions to create a welcoming and fabulously comfortable environment. The owners have spared no expense in fitting out the home and everything you need or want is included. It is a home you would move into in a heartbeat.

Without doubt the Old Watermill is the best holiday home I have ever stayed in and I recommend it unconditionally.
