The Sheiling is a charming, Quirky cottage. It has everything you need and more. If you like it from the pictures you'll love it there. It's perfect. One tip - don't reverse into the driveway. Pull in, reverse out up the hill and go down to the river and turn around.
Ms Redpath May 2018
Beautiful spot, lovely walks also hand being close to the fisherman's arms for food in the evenings.
Mrs Evans March 2018
The cottage was lovely very comfortable. It had everything you could need. Would stay again.
Mrs Smith March 2018
In a very good location, close to Fowey and many walks close by. A good place for two couples sharing or if teenagers need space of their own.
Mrs Dunbar December 2017
Such a lovely feel when you walk in. So homely, such a lovely stay.
Mr Jones August 2017
Fantastic location, easy reach of lots of places. Home from home
Mr Gould June 2017
What can I say, the Sheiling has everything. From a good assortment of quality pots and pans, all with correct lids. Everything a kitchen needs, lovely comfortable bed, (haven't slept so well in ages!) very comfortable furnishings, and that incredible conservatory where we spent a great deal of time. The garden is wonderful with a great many birds and a frog, certainly the garden's natural stream is a real asset, and provides a home to whirligig beetles. Bats fly around in the evening, even a stag beetle came to see me. Cynthia, the housekeeper, was very kind and relaxed and made us feel very welcome. In short, if you want peace and quiet far from the madding crowds, the Sheiling is for you.
Ms Fogg October 2016
The cottage is in a quiet and peaceful location, with some good views of the River Fowey, and perfectly situated to visit places such as the Eden Project, Fowey and beaches at Polkerris and Par.
Mr Fullerton September 2016
A lovely cottage in a quiet village with a friendly pub close to hand.
Ms Watson August 2015
This was the second year that we have stayed at the Shieling. We loved it just as much this year and will definitely return again. Lovely property in an idyllic location peace perfect peace.
Mr Irving May 2015
for the first time on using holiday rental properties we found the beds very comfortable and had, much needed, good restful nights.
Mrs Beddard April 2015
Very nice property, very comfortable. No hesitation in recommending to others.
Miss Angus April 2015
This was a last minute booking and we weren't sure what to expect, but on the basis of the excellent help we got when booking we were optimistic. We weren't disappointed, great service, great house and a great location for well needed R&R

We were so sorry to see that you were unhappy with your choice of property. As you know from our correspondence with you, we are very confident that The Sheiling is honestly and accurately presented with clear photos showing the paved garden area and the extremely comfortable and welcoming interior. It's a real shame that you would have preferred a grassed outside space, but we're glad that you loved the village and thank you for your additional comments about the easy parking and generous provision of fuel for the fire. We'd be delighted to help you find a different property to meet your requirements in the future. Tanya, Customer Support

A snug and serene cottage in picturesque Golant and a perfect base for exploring south east Cornwall. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped, The Sheiling is a characterful delight.
Mrs Preece September 2014
This house was absolutely perfect - we were a party of 2 couples and we could have our own space or be together quite easily..The location is lovely and relaxing,but equally there is plenty nearby to do. The pub in the village provides good food at reasonable prices for those days when you don't want to cook. An oasis of calm to which we hope to return very soon.
Ms Watson August 2014
Great place to stay if you appreciate peace and tranquility. The cottage is a real gem, well equipped, comfortably furnished with a lovely garden where you can find many different spots to sit and relax, weather permitting.
Mrs Hawley August 2014
This is a lovely bungalow in a beautiful, friendly village. The local pub ' The Fishermans Arms ' serves excellent food if you don't feel like cooking. You are only a short walk from the river and it is an easy walk as well, not too steep if you are older or pushing a pushchair. There is everything you could need in the cottage, and if it is rainy there are books , records, games and videos etc in abundance. If there is anything you need to know the extremely helpful housekeeper, Cynthia, is close at hand. Everywhere was clean and tidy when we arrived, and I hope it was not too bad when we left !!
Mrs Mayo July 2014
Fantastic location and the most amazing, peaceful gardens. We enjoyed our time at The Sheiling.
Mrs Maynard June 2014
We knew what to expect as this was our third stay here. This is a superbly equipped property, full of fascinating memorabilia collected by the owner's mother. We regret we had never met her and listened to the many stories she would have had to tell.
We would have liked to stay long enough to read all the hundreds of books!
Mrs Pearson April 2014
As a family of 4 adults, one child, a baby and a dog, there was plenty of space at the Sheiling for a comfortable stay. Seemingly everything was provided including bed linen and towels and a huge range of kitchen items. The little touches were appreciated as well, such as the fresh flowers, milk and chocolates on arrival. Our granddaughter loved the little play area by the water. We also used the village pub on a few nights - the food was reasonably priced and of good quality.
Mrs Clare September 2013
This cottage was just perfect. Very comfortable and homely and in a lovely area close to the harbour and the pub. Just delightful in every respect. Can't recommend highly enough.
Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
