“Elegant, comfortable home with amazing views minutes from town”

My husband and I had a wonderful stay here with our young son in late June, early July. The house is beautifully decorated, immaculate and finished to a high standard. The main bathroom (there are two) is like one from a boutique hotel. The house has lots of details that together create a very relaxing environment (dimmer switches, comfortable beds, black out blinds, ipod dock, dvd player). It has gorgeous views of the harbour, sailboats along the estuary, the town's medieval church, cattle grazing on hills in the distance, etc. It really is breathtaking. It is particularly well set-up for young families as it has a nice travel cot, black out blinds, children's crockery, and a great selection of books and toys. The open concept living-dining area is great for families. Our 11 month old son slept well there and really enjoyed the house, the toys and the town.

The location is excellent as you're five minutes from the town centre and only a bit further to the beach. The bus stop (for buses to Par, St Austell, Heligan) is about two minutes away, in front of the Safe Harbour pub.

Fowey town is beautiful and well-placed for sight-seeing trips to the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, local beaches, Mevagissey, Polruan, etc. The town has an excellent range of food shops given its size. The brilliant butchers doubles as a foodie paradise with its range of local cheeses, produce, etc. There's also a bakery, a fish mongers and specialist wine shop and a very good minimarket.

Our local recommendations are: Old Quay House Hotel for a meal on the terrace (for the view alone), Sam's for great food and casual atmosphere, Sam's Lounge for a late night cocktail and good music, Lost Gardens of Heligan for the gardens but also the amazing cafe, the Fowey Hotel for a cream tea with a view, Lobbs Farm Shop at Heligan for the real farm shop experience.

In an effort to try to balance out this review, here are a few cons: there is a small, paved terrace but no outdoor green space (beloved of parents of toddlers!), no wood burner, and the top (attic) bedroom can be bright from the skylight. But really, a beautiful place.

“A beautiful home from home - a perfect, relaxing stay”
Reviewed 8 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

My wife and I took our 6 month old daughter on her first holiday and we decided on Fowey in Cornwall.
We found Lantic through a search engine and upon enquiring, I received helpful, polite and accurate communication from the owners - To be perfectly honest, they could not have been more helpful - After fully understand our needs with a young daughter in tow, Oliver and Leonie gave some superb recommendations for places to go, local beaches, restaurants, pubs etc and all of which were fantastic and added to the quality of the holiday. The directions accurate, the information on Fowey's limited carparking was particularly helpful, we literally had a step by step guide of where to drive/park/purchase a weekly parking ticket and where to unload the car.

Upon arriving at the property, the key collection was simple and we were not only impressed with the quality of the decor and fittings, but also the fact that there was a note and a bottle of wine waiting for us - much appreciated after a long drive down! We used the BBQ on our first night and found all of the equipment in the house to be of the highest quality and from market leading brands. The decor is tasteful and the quality of the beds/mattress and bedding was of such superior quality that it is the first occasion where we have actually been disappointed to return to our normal bed at home!! The location is perfect for visiting all local amenities (although beware that Fowey has lots of hills!) and armed with the owners' guidance, we found the best restaurants and beaches to enjoy! We instantly relaxed on this trip and cannot wait to go back - we have booked to stay at Lantic again next year and as an experienced traveller, I cannot give Lantic any higher praise. If you are a couple, family or a group of couples/friends, then this property will be everything you are looking for and more! Enjoy!!

“Lovely cosy home, great location in a beautiful area”
Reviewed 15 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We spent a week at Lantic with my partner's parents and we had a great time. This was our third visit to Fowey and Lantic was the best house by far. We loved it! The owners are very nice and welcoming. The house is homely, cosy and very comfortable. The views upstairs are just great, but we also liked the view from the bay window in the living room a lot (coloured houses, narrow typical Cornish street and just a glimpse of the water). You are only a short walk from nice little shops, tearooms, pubs, restaurants, the beautiful estuary and coastal walks. Lantic offers anything you might need. The beds are very good and the bedding is beautiful too. The little wash room at the attic is very handy indeed. We would love to come back one day. Maybe at that time the woodburner Oliver and Leonie are planning for will be there! That would really be the icing on the cake on colder days (like we had).
