Fantastic accommodation with really nice and approachable owners. It is very central to most places in Cornwall and only a 5 minute drive to the Eden Project. Highly recommend.

We had a fantastic stay at The Leat. The property is very comfortable and close to lots of local attractions including the Eden project and some lovely beaches and days out. The owners have put a lot of effort into making the accommodation family friendly. They were both very welcoming and helpful during our stay. We would certainly recommend the accommodation to others.

A lovely place to stay, it was comfortable, warm and stylish. The owners were friendly and helpful; it was fascinating to find out about the history of the property and its link to the china clay industry. A visit to Wheal Martyn museum is a must to fully understand the significance. It was a great centre for the area, particularly Eden Project which is just up the road, there were plenty of attractions, gardens and towns to visit within a reasonable drive. We were a party of 3 but there is plenty of room for 4 in this great property, highly recommended.

The cottage was lovely; containing everything we needed and in an excellent condition. The upstairs was really spacious and there was a cosy seating area downstairs for relaxing in the evening. The property was situated in a great location in a quiet, rural area but also very close to places of interest and essential facilities.

EVERYTHING had been thought of in the kitchen, and everything that was in the property felt luxurious. Extra large bath towels and fluffy carpets. WiFi was brilliant. The owners couldn't have been more helpful.

A warm reception by the owner and we received a good explanation of how everything in the cottage worked. The interior of the property was very clean, neat and well prepared. The furniture was in great condition, and very comfortable.

This was a fabulous place to stay - part of Cornish china clay heritage converted into twenty-first century top quality comfort and such a lot of space inside. A really lovely conversion of the old drying kiln. As a location it was so close to the Eden Project that we walked. Lots to do - we went out on visits every day. We also drove north and south of the county easily from here. Son was happy with the WiFi connection and DVD player! We didn't spend a lot of time outside - being October but we made friends with the cat! All the cottages were booked but we didn't hear a sound from anyone else - just saw them on their way in and out like us - so a good sense of privacy. Lovely place!

Had a great week staying here with my wife and young son for a week over the Easter period. Unusual layout with the bedrooms on the ground floor but you soon get used to this and it makes for a very cosy upstairs living area to relax in. Lovely new furnishings and carpets and well equipped throughout. Very spacious upstairs which was great for our lively 8-year old and a decent-sized garden area to the rear (reached up a flight of steep steps) as well. Walking distance (uphill via winding country road) to the Eden Project (30-40 mins walk for the fit) and close to other places of interest such as Fowey, Charlestown and essential facilities such as supermarket etc (10 min drive). We still found it to be a very quiet and peaceful location though.

Pretty and spacious holiday home with an interesting history. We visited the Wheal Martyn China Clay pit, where we saw similar clay drying facilities. We liked the diversity of Cornwall and every day was different: beach, coast, pretty villages, industrial heritage, gardens etc.
