                                                                                      This apartment really is something special. The living room area looking out over Fistral beach is just amazing. The building is solidly built so we didn't hear anything from the other apartments. Couldn't even hear the lift going up and down. Also there aren't any bars nearby so there is no music booming from outside. The place is well stocked with books / DVD's / games / toys so even if the weather is bad there is something to keep you occupied. The kitchen has easy to use appliances, with home essentials like dishwasher, washer dryer and microwave. The fridge and freezer both were good size to take a week's food. The bedrooms are good sized and all have balconies with great views. Big wardrobes but bring / buy coat hangers. As to location there aren't really any shops in walking distance but The Sainsburys is only a short drive if you need supplies. You can walk to the beach at South Fistral easily enough, (its a steep walk back though) and if the tide is right, walk south to Crantock Beach. And you can check both out from the balcony to see what the surf is doing. We went with a toddler and limited mobility grand parent and found the place friendly and accessible for both. The outdoor shed is quite secure with a good space for a few bikes and surfboards. Plus there is an outside shower in the car park to rinse off sand, very useful. We had a really great time, the views were awesome and the apartment was really well decorated and stocked. Would recommend staying here again, or buying it as a second home if I had the money!

The house is clean, modern and spacious. There were 6 adults & 8 children in our party and the house was ideal for us. The cinema room was a particular favourite with the children after a day at the beach. The views over Fistral beach were stunning and we enjoyed walks down to the beach and into the town. The location of the house made it easy for us to have our pick of the beaches Newquay has to offer.

The conversion job is superb and very well thought out; we felt really at home and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The facilities are excellent and we made very good use of the endless pool (first experience!), rowing machine, exercise bike and sauna as well as table tennis and pool table. There is a great selection of DVDs to borrow (we loved Pride!) and we enjoyed visiting the small animals on a couple of occasions. The location is brilliant, just a few miles up the river from Fowey but away from the busyness, and very handy for the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan and some great beaches. We really enjoyed the circular walk into Golant with some stunning views along the way and a great pub in the village. Debbie and Simon were very friendly and helpful and we would thoroughly recommend this as a great place to stay.
