CHALET THE LODGE AT OLD SAWMILLS: 2 BEDROOMS, SLEEPS 5

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday chalet in Golant - The Old Sawmills

One 7 bedroomed house and one 2 bedroomed wooden lodge

Set in its very own tidal creek on the banks of the River Fowey, The Old Sawmills is a haven of tranquility.

A converted water mill dating back to the 17th century

Nestled in acres of woodland, the location alone is stunningly beautiful.

Whilst staying at the Old Sawmills you have the feeling of being on your own island, as access to the Sawmills is by boat... yet you can walk out any time, along the scenic footpath of the Saints way.

The site has seen a wealth of history from medieval merchants to Wind in the Willows, wartime employment to world famous recording studio. Located between the charming village of Golant and the picturesque town of Fowey, it’s both an ideal base for visiting many of the sights of Cornwall and a perfect setting for simply relaxing and watching the tide lap in. Good fishing can be had from the outer quay and there are many walks that can be joined from the grounds

The Old Sawmills is a dog’s paradise too, and well behaved animals are welcome.

BEAUTIFUL PEACEFUL LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
We had a lovely peaceful break at the lodge, our neighbours for our stay were a few ducks, a swan and a fishing heron. We did not hire a boat as we were not sure how much we would use it, although we did make use of the kayak that was on site for a bit of a paddle in the creek. We quite happily walked into Golant everyday come rain or shine, lovely sense of community there and were made very welcome especially at the fishermans where we had a nice meal or two.
Would quite happily return as the lodge was spotlessly clean and well maintained and the photos of the inside did not do it justice.
Thanks to Ruth for the boat ride and help at the end of the phone when we needed it.

A HIDDEN GEM

  • 5 out of 5
The photos of the place look amazing on the website but what actually meets you In reality is truly breathtaking. It ticks every box for our requirements and the manager Ruth was fantastic in her hospitality. The seclusion of the place is second to none but yet close enough to civilization. Also hiring a boat added more adventure to our holiday and created the morning boat run to Fowey for fresh croissants.
It's the type of place where you'll never bore of, which is why I'll be booking again.

Many thanks

THE OLD SAWMILLS

  • 5 out of 5
This location is truely unique and idyllic. set in woodland beside a beautiful creek.we felt a million miles way from the hustle and bustle of every day life,and yet we were just a short boat ride or walk away from delightful coast,scenery ,shops and eateries stuffed with local produce
Our welcome was warm from the manager who even before we arrived had efficiently,promptly(and patiently!) answered several questions that we had via e mail.on arrival Ruth gave us a wealth of additional information regarding history of the mill ,the many musicians that recored there, te times and the locality.
The sawmills itself was spotlessly clean,well maintained and had everything we could possibly have needed .
we were so relaxed after our stay,it was the perfect retreat,and a real treat!
We are so looking forward to returning

EXCELLENT STAY.

  • 5 out of 5
My family had a fantastic holiday staying here at the Sawmills Lodge. We were given a very friendly welcome by the manager Ruth who then boated us and our luggage down the river Fowey. We went under the railway bridge and what a stunning hideaway and location. The Lodge itself has its own private garden and is very well equipped, like home from home. We couldn't resist lighting the log burning stove in the evenings. The children had tremendous fun on the canoes in the creek and most definitely did not want to leave. We had some lovely walks into the nearby town of Fowey, to get essentials and to wander the great shops and public houses. The nearby village of Golant has an excellent pub, the Fishermans Arms who were also very welcoming. The accommodation is brilliant and in a truly peaceful setting. Never a dull moment and so much to enjoy for all ages. If looking to holiday in Cornwall I couldn't think of anywhere better to recommend with the nearby beautiful beaches, walks and Eden Project, we will most definitely be returning this year.

FANTASTIC

  • 5 out of 5
We loved this place, a true getaway spot.
The location was beautiful, away from the beaten track, peaceful, on the waters edge which is tidal, there is wildlife only as neighbours.
You need to be reasonably fit to really enjoy the location and walk out to the local villages, views are fabulous.
The Lodge, clean, fully equipt, amazing bathroom, lovely. It was just the two of us and the dog, perfect size for easy maintainance whilst your there.
Ruth is lovely, friendly, welcoming and helpful.
We loved it so much that we are going back for our honeymoon.

PERFECT LODGE TO VISIT CORNWALL

  • 4 out of 5
Our holiday at the lodge was a memorable experience. We all enjoyed the 15 minute walk through the woods back to the village where our car was parked. The local pub has friendly staff and the food was great. It was a perfect base to go and visit Fowey and surrounding areas, we walked to fowey in 45 minutes and found a lovely cafe called Pinky Murphy's. It sells gorgeous food and cakes and is well worth a visit.
The lodge was clean, comfortable and had everything that we needed.
If you are looking to visit cornwall and want somewhere special to stay.....This is the place!
Ruth met us on arrival and was friendly and gave us some useful tips to enjoy our stay in Golant.
We will definately come again.....A very special place

Situated between the charming village of Golant and the historic port of Fowey, the Old Sawmills is within easy reach of many of Cornwall’s attractions. The Sawmills is an ideal base for walkers as there are several exceptional coast and country side walks that can be joined right from the doorstep of the Sawmills. Longer or short term boat hire is available in Fowey, making it quick and easy to nip in and out of the town from the Sawmills. River trips, cruises and fishing outings, can all be arranged from Fowey, as well as Canoe and Kayak expeditions. Fowey has a wealth of Restaurants, bistros, tearooms and pubs, all offering food. Superb beaches and coves in the vicinity. Plenty of Fascinating Historic country houses including the splendid Lanhydrock. Many gardens to visit, particularly the magnificent Lost Gardens of Heligan and the world famous Eden project, which also hosts The Eden Sessions, a series of one day music festivals. Bike hire, golf and surfing are all within easy reach.
