“Perfect Fowey Retreat”
Reviewed June 8, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed at Badgers Hollow just outside Fowey for a week in May. We were met by Colin, the owner, who kindly explained all about this beautiful barn conversion, the many features of the extremely well appointed interior and the local area. To supplement this, Colin has also assembled a useful collection of maps and books about the local area.

The accommodation is of an extremely high standard as are the many fixtures and fittings. The kitchen has every appliance you could possibly need on a holiday, and some. The bathroom is very luxurious and the open plan living area has a very spacious feeling. If the weather had been unkind, we would have been very happy just chilling in the barn.

We certainly didn't see all of the local area, and found some things we would love to see again, so we have the perfect excuse to return.

We stayed for four nights in early May . The barn conversion has been extremely well done and the standard of equipment inside is very high. There is so much to do in the area that we will definitely return. The owner Colin was very helpful and gave lots of suggestions on local places to visit. We did enjoy a meal at Sam's On The Beach, after a full day at the Eden Project.

“Superb place to stay”

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here recently. As other reviewers have noted the accommodation is exceptionally well-thought out and equipped with the added extras of underfloor heating, a wood burning stove, super bathroom and well-equipped kitchen. The location is delightfully rural and certainly a good place to stay if you want peace and quiet. We enjoyed the coastal walking and exploring the Fowey estuary by canoe. Should the weather prove inclement during a holiday here, then this accommodation has plenty to offer in making you comfortable.

We spent a rainy week in Fowey but thanks to the perfect cottage we had a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. Colin renovated the cottage with quality and good taste. We were also welcomed with an ample fruit basket (pineapple, grapefruit, orange, pear, bananas) and scones and biscuits. Not to mention milk in the refrigerator and farm eggs !!! The bathtub with water jets was the perfect massage after a rainy hike.

We stayed at White Willow Barn and it completely exceeded our expectations from the moment we arrived. We had fully researched and looked at travellers' pictures on TripAdvisor, but it looked a million times better in the flesh. Colin King greeted us and settled us in. He kindly pointed us in the direction of our fridge, which contained our cream tea that he'd put together for us :)) Delicious! What a traditionally Kernow way to kick start our holiday in Cornwall! The barn was really warm and cosy and we lit the fire on a couple of occasions too - just for the fun of it really. Every little detail has been considered at White Willow and Colin has put so much thought into this place. He understood that we didn't know the area at all, we were real tourists and so he talked us through all the places we should go to - that was really helpful. The location of the barn is wonderful, up its own winding single track lane, all you can hear are the birds. After spending the daytime exploring Cornwall, we couldn't wait to wait to get back there, you really do feel completely at home. All the reviews you read here are absolutely true. This is a magical place and one we will definitely be returning to. Sad to be home to the sound of noisy cars and reality :( ! See you again soon White Willow :))
