“Lovely stay in really excellent accommodation”
Reviewed May 2, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

River Valley Studio is in a very peaceful location, very conveniently placed to explore the surrounding area. The accommodation itself is very spacious, beautifully presented, stylish and well-equipped. We had a really enjoyable stay and would definitely recommend.

“Chilled & Homely Studio...”
Reviewed April 19, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

St Austell is a perfect hub to venture around Cornwall, whether it be local or far 'n' wide.

The Studio commended this fact, as it was Clean and Modern looking, which came in handy after a days trek / excursion within this beautiful part of the country.

It seems strange that the Studio is situated only 10-15 minutes away from the local Town Centre, yet opposite a small forest with a stream flowing by.
..Experience this vibe when that sun hits you whilst sat on that Balcony.. :-)

The warmth experienced from the Owners & their knowledge / 'points in the right direction' made the hoilday a pleasurable one & I will be back, especially to eat some more Cornish pasties!!

P.s....The locals were sound too & very, wery helpful too...We're gutted we had to come home.

We arrived by train as this was well located for visiting Cornwall without a car. The owner was generous enough to offer to pick us up from the station too.

The walk from the station is about 15 minutes via the town centre and apart from the last bit up to the station it is quite an easy walk, with suitable shops en route. Buses also take you to the surrounding places of interest too.

There is everything you need, fast internet, freesat TV and a fully fitted kitchen. The bed is very comfortable and our son enjoyed his bed too. The shower is good and the place is easy to keep clean.

“Comfortable Self-Catering Studio”
Reviewed October 6, 2015 for a stay in September 2015
2
people found this review helpful

We were looking for a self-catering option in St Austell that would allow us to explore the region on foot and on bicycle, particularly Heligan and The Eden Project. The studio is not far from the numerous bicycle paths that criss-cross the region, and also relatively close to downtown and the bus / train services as well as grocery stores.

The studio itself is impeccable, and quite comfortable. The neighbourhood is a quiet one and we had a very peaceful stay.

The hosts rented us bicycles for our travels and were also very accommodating of our schedules. Sam and Simon are very welcoming hosts.

“Beautiful, clean and comfortable studio”
Reviewed September 3, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The studio was an excellent base to visit the gorgeous sites of Cornwall. We were able to visit Mevagissey, Charlestown Harbour and Fowey which were all a close drive. The studio is beautifully decorated and is very modern, spotlessly clean and had everything you needed for a comfortable holiday. The owners and their cats were very friendly and could not be heard even thought the studio was above their house.

Our holiday was amazing in this studio and I would highly recommend it to anyone else.

“Great location”
Reviewed August 6, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A surprisingly quiet studio apartment which was perfectly located for the areas we wanted to visit throughout Cornwall and a short walk from St Austell town centre. The studio was very clean and modern inside and surprisingly spacious due to the high ceiling. The balcony was superb to just sit back and relax when the weather allowed. The bed was extremely comfortable although it would be great to have some blinds on the skylights as we would wake up really early. The kitchen was well equipped but no freezer compartment in the fridge (the owners do offer the use of their freezer, but this meant we would be regularly knocking on their door which we didn't want to do). The bathroom was perfectly adequate (bring a hairdryer if you require one). The wifi was absolutely fine with good signal. Plenty of off road parking for your car.

“Fabulous retreat!”
Reviewed July 31, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

River Valley Studio is a perfect retreat for exploring Cornwall. We found it a wonderful relief from the crazyness of the holiday parks (some friends were staying on one nearby).

It has everything you could need (even a washing machine!) and is actually much more spacious than it appears in the pictures. The bed is super comfy and the rain shower and added touch of luxury.

The owners are lovely and live in the main house next door. We never heard them though.

If we ever come to this part of Cornwall again we will most certainly stay at River Valley Studio :-)
