De Oude Houtzagerijen gelegen in zijn eigen getijdekreek aan de oevers van de rivier de Fowey, is een oase van rust.
Een omgebouwde watermolen dateert uit de 17e eeuw
Genesteld in hectare bos, de locatie alleen al is overweldigend mooi.
Tijdens uw verblijf in het Oude Zagerijen heb je het gevoel dat je op je eigen eiland, zoals de toegang tot de zagerijen is per boot ... maar u kunt elk gewenst moment uit te lopen, langs de schilderachtige voetpad van de Heiligen weg.
De site heeft een rijke geschiedenis gezien van de middeleeuwse handelaren om wind in de wilgen, oorlogstijd werkgelegenheid aan wereldberoemde opnamestudio. Gelegen tussen het charmante dorpje Golant en het pittoreske stadje Fowey, het is zowel een ideale uitvalsbasis voor het bezoeken van veel van de bezienswaardigheden van Cornwall en een perfecte setting om gewoon te ontspannen en kijken naar het tij ronde in. Goede vissen kan worden gehouden van de buitenste kade en er zijn vele wandelingen die kunnen worden samengevoegd vanaf het terrein
De Oude Sawmills is een paradijs te van een hond, en goed opgevoede dieren zijn welkom.
There are so many positive things I can say about this property. Ruth was very welcoming from the moment I spoke to her, and she provided our group with everything we needed to feel comfortable during our stay. The boat trip to the secluded house was exciting with guests, 2 dogs and all our provisions on board.
The house itself really took me by surprise. From looking at the pictures I knew that the property was going to be nice, but when I saw it in person I couldn't believe how amazing it was. The house is a stunning waterside property when the tide is in and in an idyllic location for woodland walks. Fowey is only 45 minutes walk away
Our friends and I really enjoyed being able to stay here and are already planning to stay again.
10 of us all school mates had a blast awesome place and Ruth the owner was fantastic....We had a magical weekend away and will for sure be back in a few years hopefully all 10 of us again. A must visit place.
The Old Sawmills and its location are both wonderful. Together they provide the perfect environment and backdrop to enjoy more important things in life such as nature and good friendships.
We departed reluctantly, but feeling refreshed and charged by such a positive experience.
I hope to return.
We hired out the Old Sawmill and the lodge for the week of our wedding which was taking place in Fowey.
As soon as me and my then Fiancée put eyes on the beautiful Sawmill we knew it had to take centre stage at our wedding. Picturesque and in perfect peace and tranquility; the only access to the Old Sawmill is by boat or an easy 15 minute ramble through the woods from Golant. It's beauty spoke for itself, but the history of the Sawmills as a recording studio added to its attraction. When you step foot inside you are stepping in the footprints of legends. From Oasis to Jessie J; there's a long list of musicians who have recorded tracks in the studios right beneath your feet.
Decorated in fairy lights and with lanterns in the surrounding trees we got the fairy tale wedding that we'd both dreamed of. Drinks in hand friends and family relaxed on the elevated balcony watching fireworks being set off from down next to the estuary while the toasty log fire glowed away inside to take off the chill.
The house manager, Ruth helped make everything possible for us during our stay. There was no problem too big, and no job too small for her. She was a ball of happy positive energy throughout.
We found the Sawmills on the internet searching for a place to stay in January to have a birthday celebration for our son's 21st, when I read the numbers it accommodated and the proximity, it looked perfect, nice and remote, no worries about noise to neighbours, it allowed pets (our Irish Water Spaniel just loved it) and there was a recording studio attached (I didn't realise the history of artists who had recorded there when booking), it sounded fun only having access by boat or foot path. We gathered a group of his close friends from school and uni and managed to keep it as a surprise.
We were staying there when it seemed that the rest of the UK was having dreadful weather, the Sawmills seemed to have it's own micro climate, it was peaceful and calm, although the tides were the highest Ruth had ever witnessed, but that didn't stop our fun, in fact it added to it.
It was an eventful and truly memorable stay. Ruth picked us up in Golant by boat, we had mass catering for feeding 16 people over 3 days, therefore the boat was stacked, we were slightly late and the tide was too high to get under the small bridge so we had to carry everything along the footpath, we dropped 5 chickens and all the eggs in the river, however Ruth was a star and fished all the chickens out, they survived unscathed.
The accommodation was perfect. Plenty of space, an extremely well equipped kitchen that was the hub for social activity, mass catering, partying and chilling. The dining/conservatory room was so warm in January (we had a good trick, we just turned the controls up on the heater!). We never needed to light the wood burner. Considering the numbers of people we found it a really reasonable rental price for out of season. It was very clean, spacious and comfortable.
We had booked the recording studio and our son's old schoolmates who'd come from various uni's across the UK, had a track recorded and mixed. They were really impressed by Tom's skills and dedication. They went away from the weekend with a really professional recording and were totally chuffed.
We'd totally recommend a stay there, go prepared with food, there is plenty of fridge and freezer space, we cooked a roast lunch for 16 without issue, but is was planned on a grand scale. A perfect celebratory weekend, of fun, socialising and just chilling out. I'd imagine it would be stunning on a summers day, but it was as equally beautiful in the winter.
I booked a long weekend at The Sawmills for a group of friends and I to enjoy a relaxing getaway. We had a fantastic time. The house is old and beautiful, we loved getting out on the water in the little boat and canoe. Ruth picked us up from Fowey on the boat which added to a lovely weekend. Very relaxing hide away - I definately recommend and would go back tomorrow.
