Bodmin 5.5 miles; Fowey 7 miles.
A delightfully peaceful country town, nestling in the Fowey river valley amid the woods and fields that characterise the area. Renowned as a centre for the antiques trade, there are several shops and dealers in the town, as well as a fine collection of country pubs, restaurants and a thriving farmer’s market. Lanhydrock House (NT) and gardens is just 3 miles away, while the fabulous Eden Project, shipwreck museum and tall ships harbour at Charlestown, and the picturesque fishing village of Mevagissey are all within 30 minutes by car. The tumbling surf, long sandy beaches and dramatic coastline of the north coast make for great days out. The river Fowey runs from the town on its 8 mile journey through the fields and wooded valleys to the gentler southern coast, a natural paradise for those who love the sea. Centrally placed, with much to do and see in the immediate area, Lostwithiel is the perfect choice for those seeking a break away from the hectic pace of the tourist resorts.

Loved the cottage. Owner was a lovely person to deal with, much thought went into our arrival and stay! Thanks for a great week!
Miss Wallage, Ruislip, November 2012
It was in a lovely position, watching the birds was great, the owners kindly replenished bird food daily which was needed and much appreciated. Lovely quiet spot. Ideal holiday location. Lovely people too.
Mrs Escot, Lostwithiel, October 2012
Brocks Barn is a real 'gem' and in an ideal location for exploring Cornwall and Devon. The accommodation is all you could wish for and the thoughtful touches provided by the owners were much appreciated.
Mrs Howard, Newport Pagnell, September 2012
It was good accommodation. Many hours were spent watching the birds on the feeding station. The owner was so welcoming and left lots of provisions and toiletries.
