It’s evident that Mr. Picton had been a hotelier, and strictly in a positive sense: the room is well-equipped and there are ittle details of service that betoken the professional: but nothing impersonal, David was helpful and considerate. Lostwithiel is a historic, charming and typical little town with a surprising range of eating places & several pubs. The walk to the castle is well worth it, and HRH The Duke of Cornwall serves a good lunch at the Nursery.
For anyone like me using public transport, the high usefulness of the railway and the Express Coach connections are balanced in the negative by the bus network, which is there to suit the small number of the population who use it (not you), doesn’t coincide well with trains, and barely serves Lostwithiel at all.
I really enjoyed my weekend and, should the occasion arise, i'd be happy to return to this accomodation.
David is an English gentleman.
Definitely recommend this place to anyone.
David and Anita were lovely hosts, could answer any questions we had and did their best to make us feel at home. Very comfortable, homely and friendly. It was quiet and secluded yet centrally located to Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan which were our priority. Lovely fresh towels and bed linen. The local village of Lostwithiel was within walking distance and we had a superb meal at Trewithen Restaurant. Thanks so much!
We had a lovely stay at David's ensuite room.
The room is very tidy & bright - Perfect for a couple. Has its own access.
The area is so quite and relaxing which makes the stay even nicer than you'd expect.
The information shown on the page was very accurate.
David is such a lovely man and was very helpful to us. Breakfast was light and great. Will definitely recommend to all of my friends.
David's place is a hidden gem in the heart of Cornwall. The room is a small self-contained annex to his home and has all the amenities you could hope for, including an en suite and WIFI. David is a retired hotelier - and you can tell - lovely little touches like the mini shower gels and shampoos in the bathroom, to the light breakfast tray with cereals and yoghurt and - of course - the mini fridge to keep the milk (and one cheeky beer) cool! The place is conveniently located and is short drives to the major Cornish attractions like the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. It's also exceptionally good value. David's welcome and hospitality was first rate throughout our visit - he had useful local tips like the best place to park for Fowey and recommending the magnificent Pandora Inn - what a meal! Thanks for everything David - 5 Stars!
David hat uns herzlich wilkommen geheißen und uns alles erklärt, was wichtig war zu wissen. Er war hilfreich aber auch dezent. Gern haben wir seine Tips, was man in der Umgebung nicht verpassen sollte, angenommen und zum Teil auch umgesetzt. Leider waren wir nur 4 Tage in Cornwall mussten deshalb eine Auswahl treffen. Eine ganz besondere Überraschung war das Frühstück, das jeden Tag ein wenig anders zusammengestellt war. Ein schöne Idee- danke dafür David!!
Das Bett ist gut und das Zimmer hat keine unangenehmen Gerüche. Auch steht ein kleiner Kühlschrank bereit- das hatten wir gar nicht erwartet. Wir können sowohl Zimmer als auch Gastgeber nur empfehlen. Die Begrünung um das Apartment herum ist übrigens im Sommer ziemlich üppig- nicht wie auf dem Foto. Es ist schließlich Cornwall- da wächst alles super.
The host was extra helpful in making our arrival possible. We arrived very late not having had dinner and the host prepared a quick meal for our benefit. We received a very hospitable welcome.
The facility was charming in location and facility.
David was present at the time we arrived in Lostwithiel. A beautiful room in the woods. David made us feel very welcome and we had a great experience in Cornwall. I would definitely recommend this place.
Every evening breakfast is prepared and left in the cupboard and fridge, so you can enjoy it the next morning.
Thanks for a wonderful stay!
We really enjoyed our stay at David's place and he was a great host. We went to a wedding in a nearby village and the room made an excellent base for us. The bed was very comfortable and getting breakfast for the morning was a really nice touch. I would definitely recommend David's for a break away and would happily return!
David was a good host and the room was lovely, very peaceful and well equipped. Breakfast in the room was a really good idea and just right.
