    The Old Coach House was immaculately presented and spotless. On our arrival there was a basket of essentials so we could have a cup of tea before venturing out. It is ideally placed for the train station/bus station which are both together and only a few minutes walk away from our accommodation. An ideal location for exploring more of beautiful Cornwall with many other villages within an easy distance.

    Need the internet to be working, managed to log on twice for short periods, could not get on if owner was logged on, he said you will have to come up to their house if we couldn't get logged on, if they were in ! You should not advertise with WFI if you cannot get it, this is against trade descriptions act. All amenities in St Austell are close as you are in the centre of the town, but entrance road is an unmade dirt track and needs work doing on it before someone has an accident !

    A perfect little base for a holiday in Cornwall, if like us, it doesn’t need to be directly overlooking the beach. Close to the sea, wonderful coastal walks, bike trails and local attractions like the Eden Project, Charlestown and the lost gardens of Heligan. We had a wonderful time. The cottage has everything you need. Parking space right outside a gated drive, so very safe and secure. Yes, you do need to go up a potholed lane, but it’s perfectly doable and worth it. The owner Ian was lovely and helpful. The property is spacious and light. Just one tiny gripe. The internet was patchy, so if this is really important for you it may be an issue. Ian did try really hard to improve it, but was unsuccessful. Thank you Ian we loved our week at your property!!

    Airy, spacious, pleasant, convenient accommodation, with a lovely painted window! We were warmly welcomed and a basket of useful goodies was provided. One of the great benefits for us, was the convenience of having the rail /bus interchange just round the corner and we made full use of the public transport. Highly recommended.

    Very well presented property that was spotless and well maintained. The proprietor was a superb host and very accommodating with our arrival time. Really nice welcome pack, which would have kept us afloat for any essentials we would have forgotten to pack and good local amenities, with pubs and restaurants within a few minutes walk. Pleasantly surprised with the location of the local train station on the doorstep, because we couldn't hear any noise from the track and despite not normally travelling by public transport we used this to travel to local destinations and found it superb value for money. Located in own grounds at the bottom of the owners property, but totally private and self sufficient. Access to the private gated entrance is by small lane approximately 30 metres long. It does have pot holes but if you take your time there isn't a problem, which more than compensates for having private gated off road parking. We had a really nice winter break here and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to family and friends.
