I've been on a month long journey around UK, and my stay here was one of the highlights... if only too short.
David's place is perfectly quiet and secluded, on a lovely well kept piece of property.
David takes obvious pride in pride the unit itself. It is tastefully and warmly decorated without being overly fancy.
And the bed is excellent. The best nights sleep I've had this entire month!
One thing I noticed was that all of the hardware, fixtures, windows etc were very good quality and in good working order.
I've not found this anywhere else I stayed during this trip... I suppose it's just something we have to accept when staying in older parts of the world.
My drive down was delayed by a long traffic jam, then I got lost. So I was a bit less than relaxed when I arrived.
David 's warm, charming personality and conversation put me at ease. He takes great care of his guests. His hotelier roots show!
He also is a wealth of knowledge about the local history and goings on.
David's place was great. Just as you see it. He was very hospitable and gave us many breakfast options. This was left in the room so you could have breakfast at your leisure. The bed was super comfy and the room was totally private. Totally recommend staying here.
This was our first Airbnb experience and a very pleasant one. David was welcoming and friendly and keen to offer information on the immediate area and Cornwall. He even offered to pick us up if the local public transport let us down- which was a very nice touch.
The house is located 10 minutes walk north of Lostwithiel station in a quiet rural location surrounded by nature. The room is large and comfortable with its own outside entrance and en-suite facilities. There is a skylight allowing natural light to flood in and also a kettle and mini fridge. David brings in your breakfast in the evening usually being a mixture of yoghurt, cereals, breads and fruit with homemade jam.
Very relaxing stay and recommended for couples.
We had a pleasant stay at Lostwithiel. The room was nice and the bed comfy. It was more like a stay in a motel than the other airbnb places we have stayed at. It probably would suit people on a short visit rather than a longer stay as there was not cooking facilities and minimal tea and coffee supplied. David was friendly and helpful. The area was nice and peaceful and quiet.
We had a wonderful stay here in Lostwithiel, down a quiet lane off the northern edge of this beautiful small Cornish town. David met us promptly when we arrived to show us round and was a friendly host, making it clear that he would be around to answer any questions if we needed. The room was bright and clean with a very comfy bed, plenty of storage space, a skylight with blind and colourful flowers just outside one of the windows. The en suite bathroom was a decent size with an excellent shower. The continental breakfasts provided every day were delicious types of cereal, bread and pastries, including some amazing home-made marmalade and jam by David's wife. The provision of a well-stocked fruit bowl was also a nice touch. Although part of the main building, connecting doors were locked and so it was effectively a separate flat. Obviously we were conscious of being part of the same building and kept ourselves reasonably quiet when we were in (and we certainly heard little from our hosts), though with the beauty of the local area to explore on our bikes we weren't in much! Everything was of a very high standard and we would gladly stay again if we were in the area.
A lovely room and tasty breakfast! David was a great host - we will definitely recommend the room to friends looking to stay in the area.
David and Anita were great hosts. Helpful, polite and hospitable. The room (or even miniappartment?) is nicely decorated and provides pleasant room for a couple. Lostwithiel is a good place to start activies either to the coast or even into Darkmoor and David provided us with helpful recommendations - be it where to go, where to park or where to eat and all of them proved to be great. We also enjoyed the breakfast which was always a nice selection and David & Anita made sure to provide us some variety. All in all, we enjoyed staying at their place in Lostwithiel a lot and can fully recommend them as a place to go in Cornwall.
David was very gracious and accommodating. Set in a lovely tranquil location, within easy reach of many tourist destinations. The bed was extremely comfortable, the bedroom tastefully furnished and lit with excellent shower facility. Charming and homely. A very pleasant 2 night visit.
David was an excellent host and communications were extremely efficient and we were able to amend our checking in time in order to visit Helligan.
Directions were spot on and a friendly smiling welcome when we arrived.
David also recommended some good restaurants as well as sharing local knowledge for parking .
Lovely room and peaceful.
Would definitely use again if visiting this area again.
Many thanks Cathy and Jamie
It was like being in a hotel, everything was comfortable, clean. Great privacy and autonomy as we were given a key to our room.
Beautiful room and bathroom.
