    “The cottage was lovely with everything that you need for a self catering holiday and for a couple or a small family I would highly recommend it.”

    Lostwithiel is a great base for touring Cornwall either by car, foot or rail and with all it's amenities is perfect.

The property

Nestled in the heart of the historic town of Lostwithiel, in the sought-after county of Cornwall, rests this delightful two-bedroom holiday home, 1 Old Talbot Cottages.

Boasting a homely and welcoming interior in an open-plan layout, and benefiting from an abundance of amenities and attractions on your doorstep, 1 Old Talbot Cottages is an excellent base for a small family or group of friends looking to explore this picturesque region.

Take advantage of the two off-road parking spaces before unloading your belongings and making your way inside your new home-from-home for the duration of your trip to begin your holiday.

Be charmed by the open-plan layout of this lovely dwelling, thoughtfully laid-out with a contemporary kitchen tucked away at the rear of the sociable space, well-equipped with a range of amenities to help prepare a heart-warming meal to be enjoyed at the nearby dining table.

After tucking-in, settle down with a sumptuous spot in the snug seating area, where you can enjoy a moment of peace as you delve into the pages of a captivating book, or catch up on your favourite show courtesy of the television.

In the warmer weather, carry the conversation outdoors with a sociable seat in the peaceful setting of your private patio, where you can uncork a bottle of wine and soak in the last of the evening sun as you recount the day's adventures.

As the evening grows darker, head back indoors and climb the stairs to the first floor where you'll find two well-presented bedrooms, a double and a twin, each offering handy storage space to house your belongings and decorated in a neutral colouring for a calming setting to rest your head.

In the morning, begin your day with a spot of luxury and pour in the bubbles and indulge in a hot soak in the bath, or make use of the overhead shower for an invigorating rinse.

Take advantage of your central location and take the short stroll into the centre of Lostwithiel where you'll find all of your essential amenities; savour fresh fish and chips as you soak in the sights with a walk along the banks of the River Fowey, enjoy a well-deserved drink in the beer garden at The Globe Inn, or pick up some last-minute ingredients with a trip to the Co-op.

Immerse yourself in the local history with a tour of Lostwithiel Museum, or marvel at the medieval remains of Restormel Castle, dating back to the 13th century and offering panoramic views across the surrounding countryside from its position on the hilltop.

Spend a fun-filled day out visiting Porfell Wildlife Park & Sanctuary, where you can come face-to-face with a variety of exotic animals and birds, wander through the ancient woodland, or explore the authentic African Plains village, with traditional huts built with mud and wicker.

Whilst you're in the area, be sure to visit the Eden Project, a world-famous eco-park made up of biome domes nestled in a reclaimed clay pit, home to the largest indoor rainforest in the world as well as a vibrant botanical garden, promising a fascinating experience for all of the family.

Jump in the car and journey to the nearby Carlyon Bay, where thrill-seekers can try their hand at jet skiing or surfing, or for a more leisurely experience, bask in the sun's rays with a good book as you lounge on the sand.

If you've remembered to pack your clubs, head to The Carlyon Bay Golf Club to test your swing, or for a unique experience, discover remarkable artefacts recovered from over 150 shipwrecks at the Shipwreck Treasure Museum.

Choose 1 Old Talbot Cottages as your base for your next Cornish adventure.

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.
