"Idyllic cottage " We had a really wonderful holiday here with our 8 year old daughter. The cottage has a lovely outlook over the water and our daughter loved exploring the mud flats when the tide was out and crabbing when the tide was in. There is also a very good playground just up the road. Judith has thought of everything and we loved the welcome scones waiting on our arrival. Golant is very near Fowey so is a great location with lots to do and see. Would definately recommend.

"Beautiful quiet retreat" My wife and I spent a very pleasant 5 days in the Boathouse. Our host, Judith, met us with freshly baked scones, homemade jam & clotted cream and a friendly, helpful outline of some of the area's charms. We throughly enjoyed the accommodation, including a well-equipped kitchen and a great view over the tidal estuary. The 5 meter tides were amazing to watch, leaving the locals' boats high and dry for half the day. The rowing club across the road was active, and their training fun to watch. The region has many charms, making possible easy day trips -- to Fowey on foot and further to St. Ives and the Lost Gardens of Heligan nearby. Everything was clean and well cared for. I can't recommend it more highly.

"Our Bouthause" We were wolcomed with Cream Tea, homemade lemonade, fresh flowers, chocolades and a bottle of wine. What a great way to start a vacation!We toured Cornwall a lot during our week in the Boathouse but it was always to great to come back "home", have a nice view on the water and the boats while sitting on the sofa and relax in the very comfortable beds.Thanks again Judith for a wonderful stay!Nils, Saveria, Lena, and Emilia

"Excellent" The House is excellent. We enjoyed the holidays very much. Golant is charming small village. Cornwall is fanastic. Judith prepared a very warm welcome with cakes and scones, wine, cheese, flowers,.....Wir haben wunderschöne Ferien in Golant verbracht. Cornwall is bezaubern. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder nach Cornwall in dieses Cottage reisen.Das Haus von Judith ist wunderschön, die Lage toll. Der Empfang durch Judith war ausgesprochen nett. Judith hatte Kuchen gebacken und alles nett mit Blumen dekoriert. Wir haben herrliche 14 Tage hier verbracht und können das Haus uneingeschränkt empfehlen. Die gesamte Atmosphäre im Haus und Ort ist ausgesprochen schön. Den Grillplatz mit der wunderschönen Aussicht haben wir sehr genossen. Wir haben fast jeden Tag abends gemeinsam gegrillt. Für etwas kühlere Tages wärmt ein Kamin das Wohnzimmer, die Küche und brachte viel Gemütlichkeit. Von Golant aus kann man schnell die wichtigsten Sehenswürdigkeiten in Cornwall erreichen. Besonders beeindruckend haben wir den Besuch einer Theatervorstellung im Minack Theater kurz vor Lands End empfunden, absolut empfehlenswert. Family R in Germany

"Home from Home without a doubt!" The Boathouse certainly has the 'wow' factor for me! It is simply exquisite! From the moment we walked in we all felt at home. The property didnt feel like a rental property at all - it felt like we walked into the heart of a very loved and cared for home. It is cosy, quirky, luxurious and tasteful!! Everything in the house is good quality, you really get the feeling that no expense has been spared. From the kitchen utensils to the towels and bedding everything was of a high spec - just lovely! We couldnt have asked for a better host than Judith. She is one of those ladies that you feel like you have known for ages after a short time, this is probably down to her warmth and kindness. She is also better than any tourist board I have ever been in! The boathouse is situated just opposite a rowing club so we spent a lot of time watching people kayaking and canoeing along the river. We have two young boys and they loved watching the boats being put on the river. Golant itself is a lovely sleepy village and is pretty beyond beleif. I could not praise or recommend The Boathouse and Judith enough. We had a perfect holiday with her and I know we will be back!

"Boat House - the perfect setting" Thank you Judith for being such a perfect host, the cream tea on arrival was gorgeous. Drinking a cuppa lying in bed every morning looking at the river was just perfect. We all had a relaxing, quiet, just what the doctor ordered break. The roof garden provides a wonderful view of the river and all the activity going on. Even binoculars provided to watch the heron on the river. A wonderful base to explore the area. High tides led to some amusement for townies like us!! Thank you.

We've been visiting the Boat House for many years and it just gets better and better.It offers so much more than the description. Judith pays particular attention to the smallest detail and also makes the most delicious bread. She's on hand but unobtrusive, rather like a good neighbour.Golant was ideal when our children were younger and we could watch them discreetly from the patio as they went alone to the play park feeling very independent. It continues to be ideal as they drive themselves down for a quick overnight stay to check up on their parents! The river offers extensive possibilities for us in canoes, and the wildlife is fantastic. Best of all we can paddle right up to the gate at the end of the day.The weather isn't always perfect but it can still be magical and the cottage is so cosy that it's sometimes nice just to sit inside and watch the constant movement of the water.Peace and quiet in the most beautiful Cornish location.

"The Boathouse cottage is the best rental cottage we have ever had. The interior was as if the owner was living there herself. We immediately felt at home. There was art on the walls, a wel equiped kitchen, docking station for our Ipod, flowers placed in every room and a very warm welcome with a cornish tea, homemade bread, wine and cheese. Owner Judith was available when ever we needed her, but she had covered all of our questions by forehand. Great place to visit the Eden project, The lost Gardens of Heligan, Padstow and have lunch or diner at Rick Stein's restaurant, a nice walk from the house to Fowey and lots of other interesting places to visit. The cottage is situated on the border of the river with only a small street between them. The view from the livingroom with the rivertide coming up and down was marvellous. We will certainly come back again and can recommend this property to everyone. Thanks Judith for all your warming extra's."

Our stay at The Boathouse in May was fantastic ! Judith, the owner, couldn't have done more to make our stay truly wonderful. Golant is perfect for young children with a park only a short walk away from the house and crabbing within a 2 minute walk. The cottage itself was completely spotless and very comfortable, would definately recommend.

The Boathouse is situated in a wonderful, dare I say, magical place! Judith, the owner,is a wonderful host and strikes that rare balance of being 'just on hand' and ensuring that everything is as it should be - whether it be proving delectable Cornish teas or crabbing nets for the kids!! The property itself is both immaculate and spotlessly clean. I would have no hesitation in recommending it!

I think The Boathouse must be in one of the most magical locations in the world, the views are truly amazing and it’s so nice to have the water right on your doorstep – so I won’t have any hesitation recommending them to our friends, as our holidays spent in Golant are always the best ones.
