Great apartment. Needs some TLC/ updating in places to restore potential. Great location for the beach and town. Well equipped and great swimming pool.

We're delighted you enjoyed using the lovely, heated pool. Such a bonus to have that fabulous facilty on site. Thank you for your suggestion of a bit of TLC, we'll pass this on to the owner for their future consideration. Donna, Customer Support

Very spacious and well located apartment in beautiful location and thoughtfully equipped. Highly recommended.

An excellent place to stay if visiting Fowey. The property is a great size, and overlooks a really nice garden area. It has a very good size kitchen, living room and dining area. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating.

Finding the property was easy and there was plenty of parking.

The pool and sauna were a great addition and they were nearly always available to use. The walk into town was quick, although a bit steep on the way back. The walk down a public footpath to the beach was quick and easy.

Would definitely use this property again.

We really enjoyed our stay at beautiful Garden Apartment. It was perfect to spend time there, kids loved the pool. Also a good starting point for walks to the coast and excursions around in Cornwall. We look forward to another holiday here.

Peaceful location with a lovely well kept garden and great to have use of the swimming pool. Perfect place to relax and unwind. Some lovely walks accessed from the quiet lane at the bottom of the garden - turn left to pick up the footpath to Readymoney Beach or right for Polridmouth Beach and Gribbin Head.

We're so glad that you found the location peaceful and the perfect place to relax and unwind. We hope you had a memorable stay and wish to welcome you back again in the future. Meg, Customer Support

What a fantastic find! So spacious, comfortable and with the added bonus of a pool that can be booked for your sole use.

We very much enjoyed our time at the apartment and would book again. We actually booked three additional days to extend our stay. The garden is secluded peaceful and well kept. Wonderful to wake up to bird song and see the various birds about their daily routine. Appreciated having the swimming pool so close by. We all enjoyed it. Local residents welcoming and friendly as were other guests we met. The open plan lay out of the appartment was ideal for all generations of the family including our toddler grandson and the location offered easy access to Fowey and surroundings.

Our apartment was spacious, warm and comfortable. A bottle of Prosecco, milk and Cornish biscuits were available on arrival which made us feel welcome. The property was a bit darker than anticipated due to being a spacious basement apartment. The beds were comfortable, the mattresses soft. We enjoyed using the pool and sauna which we had all to ourselves every day. The apartment is a 15ish minute walk down hill into Fowey. We discovered you can take a bus back from the centre of Fowey (just outside the church) and this takes you to ‘the pretty bus stop’ which is only a couple of minutes walk away. We enjoyed our stay in the apartment, our only disappointment was that someone had left their dog poo on the lawn and we had to be careful to avoid it when playing around with our 7 year old son.

We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Fowey! The town bus is indeed a bonus - in fact guests can even request to be dropped back at the driveway to Carnethic House, where the property is situated (just check the timetable on the church noticeboard as the service varies out of season). We're sorry to hear that a dog had visited the communal grounds - the apartment itself is not available to pets, so we're sure that this is an isolated incident from a different property but were pleased that it didn't adversely affect your time in this lovely space. Tanya, Customer Support

A wonderful location close to Fowey town centre, a spacious property with swimming pool that was very much enjoyed by all.

We have visited twice and intend to return. There are lovely walks from the property. The local farm shop is only a stroll up the road and is a real find. As always Classic Cottages have been helpful.

We had a wonderful stay at the Garden Apartment. Perfect location with beautiful gardens and the pool was great to relax in and by after a long day in the sun. Cannot wait to return.

More info on equipment provided eg hairdryer provided, but I couldn't easily find it in description. Good to know about stuff like coffee press being available. Need more up to date reviews. The lack of positive reviews made us suspicious. When I googled the property a very negative review about cleanliness kept cropping up from 2012. This was not our experience at all. The website says to contact the letting agent to see if there is any flexibility about rental dates. We did. The person we spoke to said there was no flexibility and the comment on the website was incorrect.

Thanks so much for your review and we're delighted that you found the cleanliness particularly good. Our Classic Cottages website shows all reviews for The Garden Apartment from Classic guests. Other reviews on different sites may relate to a different property nearby with a similar name; this is not our property. We're so sorry you had difficulty finding suitable dates; often we can offer different options if it fits with the housekeeper and owner, but we're sorry that we couldn't accommodate your first choice of dates this time. We do hope overall you enjoyed your stay in Fowey and would love to welcome you back again in the future. Kelsey, Customer Support

Carnethic House is a great location in walking distance of beaches and the town. It is quiet with a well maintained garden and the added bonus of a good sized swimming pool which we enjoyed.

We had an excellent week in a beautiful part of Cornwall and would thoroughly recommend this apartment. We also found the service from Classic Cottages and the owner to be excellent.

Thank you very much.

The Garden Apartment was all as described. The apartment was roomy, well appointed, good decorative order and very clean. The beds in particular were very comfortable. The swimming pool was larger than expected and proved very popular. The host contacted us as soon as arrived and was very helpful with dining and excursion ideas.

Really looking forward to returning for a third time! Fantastic, thank you so much, we had a truly wonderful time.

Lovely, spacious apartment with view onto gardens. Handily placed for local walks to Readymoney or over to Polkerris on the edge of Fowey.

Lovely spacious ground floor apartment located a short walk from Fowey. Very well equipped, highly recommended.

Great space for several people, excellent facilities.

We had a great time in this beautiful apartment. Well equipped, lovely garden and great swimming pool.

Fantastic location. Walks are beautiful. Very relaxing holiday.

Superb location for a family get away. Great size apartment with loads of space for the children and very well equipped. Lovely garden and pool to play in. We would love to return.

A good location with good parking. Kitchen was very well equipped and had everything you needed. Having the use of the pool was great. A very well kept garden which was lovely to sit in in the evening. We will be revisiting.

This is a spacious and well appointed apartment with easy access to the terrace and gardens. The en-suite bathrooms in each room are good. It is comfortable and clean with a good range of equipment available for guest use. We loved our stay there and would certainly like to return

Beautiful gardens and accommodation, pool is wonderful.

Accommodation lovely, very well equipped kitchen, and comfortable beds. The management team on sight are lovely, and very helpful.

The apartment, the garden, the pool, the location, fantastic! Above and beyond what we expected. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and the "welcome" goodies were a bonus! Would dearly love to revisit, but the only drawback for us, is the journey all the way from South West Scotland, a nightmare drive that took 13 hours going home, due to hold ups .

We were pleased with everything, except the flat was darker than expected and the wifi, on occasion, was poor. However, neither of these things spoilt our stay. The accommodation suited us well.

good location and facilities

Very well equipped, good decor, ease of parking. lovely walk to beach and shops.

The cottage and stay were absolutely lovely. The layout of the cottage is perfect for families- our family from the States were extremely comfortable. The village of Fowey is a hidden gem...close to beaches, a short walk or drive to shops for food or pubs, lovely customer service. We will be back! KM

Great location and good having access to swimming pool. Holiday let down by cleanliness of property and lack of fully working bathroom facilities. A refurb of all 3 bathrooms is required.

Thanks for your review; we've spoken to the owner who was grateful for you letting her know about the showers when she called you last week. The plumber has visited this week to address the issues - your industry knowledge and suggestions were very helpful! It's a shame that you didn't mention the cleanliness at the time as well, as we'd happily have visited and rectified any problems, but both we and the owner were pleased that you had a great stay overall. Tanya, Customer Support

Excellent well equiped and spacious property with the bonus of a lovely swimming pool.

A fantastic cottage, very easy with children - stack of toys, colouring equipment that made our lives so much easier... i didn't even need to unpack the bag of toys i brought along for my children. Lovely open plan apartment, bright and easy to live in as a family. The DVDs and books were another welcome touch. Thank you, Jo

very nice peaceful setting for families and/or adult parties. We had the weekend with son and daughter in law and 2 children and the rest of the week on our own and we all enjoyed it. The kids loved the pool and all the toys in the toy box. Great fun and would book again.

In my opinion the apartment would be very good for a family

Another lovely stay at the Garden Apt. Wonderfully equipped in an ideal location near Fowey and Ready money beach. Great pool and lovely gardens. A holiday treasure.

Lovely apartment. Very modern with good facilities. Felt nicely secluded but had all the benefits of the pool etc so great balance for us as a family. Garden and pool were a great asset. Kids loved pool and made friends with the other kids around.

Lovely apartment, very well equipped for children. The pool and gardens were lovely.

Fantastic, well equipped apartment in a great location.

Beautiful apartment, wonderfully well equipped and situated, glorious garden, great pool, and the regular visits of Mack the upstairs cat were a delight! Changes? Perhaps the beds in the main two bedrooms should be placed against the opposite walls, as the internal walls are very thin. And larger bedroom tv's so you don't need to watch through binoculars! But those are very minor complaints, we'd return like a shot. Thanks for everything; self catering can be a lottery but on this occasion we had five numbers and the bonus ball.

We had a relaxing and enjoyable week in the Garden Apartment. We found the apartment spacious and clean with a great selection of books, games and DVDs. The kitchen was very well equipped. We loved the luxury of the pool and sauna which we were lucky enough to have sole use of whenever we wanted to use them. The location was perfect for us with easy access to a wide choice of beautiful walks. We found picturesque routes into the lovely town of Fowey and made the most of the Fowey town bus to get us back up the hill. We have some wonderful family memories to take away with us.

Fantastic pool, lovely spacious clean apartment and beautiful gardens.

A really lovely cottage in a great location. Fowey is charming and a good base for a holiday. The property itself is well decorated and appointed and well managed. The pool is a real bonus.

Beautiful apartment in stunning surroundings, decorated and fitted to a very high specification, the pool and its amenities very popular with our children. This is our 3rd visit, and I hope not our last.

we spent a lovely week enjoying the peace and quite of this beautiful apartment and garden /pool area.

Beautiful place to stay, would highly recommend .

The Garden Apartment has the potential to be a really pleasant accommodation provided remedial action is undertaken. Our holiday in this apartment was enjoyable, but could have been excellent if some of the longstanding faults had been corrected.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review The Garden Apartment. As you know from our correspondence just after your stay, your detailed feedback enabled us to pinpoint some specific areas of the apartment that required some troubleshooting by the Owners. They have really taken on board your comments and have addressed the concerns raised whilst carrying out the general routine maintenance and decoration that always takes place over winter; a new shower tray has been installed to prevent seepage of water in the en suite to the twin room, that shower-room's walls have been resealed and the slight leak from below the kitchen sink has been found and remedied. We know that the electrical system is quite sensitive, but there are no obvious faults and the circuit board is easily accessible with clear instructions on how to reset it should anything trip. We were glad that you had an enjoyable stay here despite a few niggling problems - as you found, it's a really lovely apartment and very well located for visiting the many attractions in the area. Tanya, Customer Support

Beautiful facilities. The rooms, bedding and towels were all comfortable and fresh. The pool area was a great bonus for the less energetic the Jacuzzi was wonderfully warm. I thought that it was a very kind touch to find flowers and Proseccoon our arrival and a pleasant phone call from the Owner to welcome us. We were able to leave the car behind most days and take Coastal walks to various beaches or into Fowey which made for a relaxing stay.

We thought the Garden Apartment was extremely well presented, clean with good quality furnishings and more than adequate range of equipment to satisfy most self catering parties. We thought both the welcome call from the owner checking to see all was well of our holiday. Foye is a very pleasant place to stay and once you have found the footpath down into the Town quite an easy walk into the Town and Harbour area. For those more energetic the direct route via the main car park and down the steep steps is challenging to say the least.

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.
