“The perfect place to spend Christmas and the New Year”
Reviewed 20 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

This was the first time we spent Christmas and the New Year away from home and Old House was a great place to stay. Everything was in top condition and there are many interesting features such as the stone circle in the floor of the wet room and, of course, the vaulted ceilings. We made a fire every evening and snuggled down to play many board games!

“Beautifully appointed and very comfortable.”
Reviewed 21 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This a barn conversion done to a very high standard. The furnishings are good quality and the decor is tasteful. There is underfloor-heating and lots of daylight and space.
We visited at Easter and outside there were primroses everywhere. It's a lovely quiet spot and although there are two of the landlord's other properties relatively close by there is still a feeling of privacy and seclusion.
It's possible to go for a twenty minute walk on the land attached to the property where there are grassy fields, woodland and a brook.
My only caveat is that because of the placement of the windows it is not easily possible to enjoy the view when sitting indoors.

Thank you for your lovely review and I am glad that you enjoyed your time in Old House Little Pinnock. As the building dates back the the 13th century we were only allowed to use the windows that were already there.
Through the kitchen/dining area you can see through the window on to the lawns and to the fields beyond. There are windows all around the other rooms at various heights.

Another perfect stay at Old House @ Little Pinnock just in-land from Fowey.
An amazing set of 3 cottages prepared to a tremendous standard.
Perfect for groups or families. Amazing setting and woods with wild grass field. Cottages have a very high specification, all one would need.
You will not be disappointed here - recommended. A Gem!
Owners lovely.

“Unbelievable group of cottaeges”
Reviewed 25 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

All together there are three cottages in this group of rental cottages, Old House, Long House and a lodge. We stayed in the Long House and boy were we in for a shock. The view from the outside was stunning, lots of parking spaces and wonderfully kept (very large) gardens. Almost out of the Eden Project. On entering our mouths just dropped opened, we couldn't believe how very beautiful this old building was. A combination of old and new together was a perfect match. Because the cottage was well furnished and big with two bathrooms, it made sharing with family and friends even more enjoyable. Being able to sit outside and have BBQs made our stay even more enjoyable. Luckily we had the weather this year on our side, but we were convinced even if it had rain we would have still enjoyed it for in the Long House there was plenty of room not to get on each others nerves. There is also lots fine walks arround the cottages and Fowey is a quaint anf friendly town with good restaurants, pubs and shopping. You have to take a boat picnic with "The sunbeam picnic boat" - fantastic good boat, its captain and not least the food - remember to take your own wine. We came all the way from Oslo Norway which has very high standards, but even by Norwegian standards The Long House Fowey Cottages was hard to beat.
Ps! use the taxi service recommended .. its not too expensive and it saves a lot of hassle.
