The property

Centrally located in Cornwall within easy reach of both coasts and moors and well placed for exploring the whole of the county this charming, cosy, end terrace cottage is set just above the historic town of Lostwithiel, 7 miles from the beautiful harbour town of Fowey.

A real homely comfortable feel welcomes you into the cottage which is full of character and with individual rooms and three bedrooms there is plenty of room here for all the family.

With lovely views over the old town and a relaxing outdoor garden and patio area this is a wonderful cottage to unwind and enjoy all that is on your doorstep.

Situated at the tidal reach of the River Fowey in a beautiful wooded valley, Lostwithiel lies tucked away just off the A390 and is a haven of peace and tranquillity.

From the door stunning walks can be enjoyed with a gentle stroll along the river enjoying the peace and tranquillity that this lovely area offers and a walk through the woodland leading to the imposing ruins of Restormel Castle overlooking the town and river.

So many walks close by are thoroughly recommended from a level easy walk along the River Fowey to a nature reserve suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs, to the hill walk between Polruan and Bodinnick offering stunning views over Fowey which is well signed and almost entirely traffic free.

Antique shops and regular fairs have made Lostwithiel the antiques capital of Cornwall while the wide range of independent shops and excellent choice of superb pubs and restaurants as well as a deli will offer you many choices of dining options.

A great location for a holiday away from the crowds.

About the location


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 Boconnoc House, Eden Project, shipwreck museum and tall ships harbour at Charlestown, and the picturesque fishing villages of Mevagissey, Fowey and Padstow, with the famous Rick Stein restaurants, are all within easy driving distance. The tumbling Atlantic surf, long sandy beaches and dramatic coastline of the north coast, including at the renowned Newquay, make for great days out and there is also chance to enjoy river canoeing, biking, hiking and leisurely walks in this lovely area. The friendly locals also have ongoing activities, such as the raft race, the famous tug of war, Carnival week and seagull outboard motor races. 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.
