The apartment itself is fantastic - it felt like nothing had been overlooked - it was comfortable, elegant, and spacious, every item was high quality. With curtains drawn I was utterly private and self-contained - bliss.
Sam could not have been a better host - I knew if I needed anything, or wanted to ask a question - it was dealt with immediately. While being totally available Sam and family were also totally non-intrusive - a great combination.
Location - I had no car or bike with me, so walked a lot - there are great bus services from St Austell through beautiful countryside to both Eden and Heligan, and also great train service.
The River Valley Retreat was a lovely place to stay. It offered everything you would need to set up base for a week or so. It's only 15 mins away from the Eden Project, 30 mins from Newquay, so not far away from some of the major tourist destinations. The owners are lovely and friendly people who are there to help if you need it.
All in all, great! Thank you Sam and Simon.
P.s. the cream, jam and scones was nice touch!
The River Valley Retreat is a lovely place to stay. It is modern and homely. It is a good location to base yourself to visit other parts of Cornwall with ease. Sam is a great host making our stay effortless. I would recommend a stay at River Valley Retreat.
