    “The phone number on the Sykes website was wrong for the owner.”

    We had a leak from the shower while there. Water was dripping through the lounge ceiling below. Managed to get hold of the owner by email. He was extremely apologetic and very quick to arrange a plumber to come and fix it.

The car park isn’t too far away on a daily basis but a bit of a trek with luggage etc on arrival and departure

The property

Located in the antiques capital of Cornwall, this really cosy old cottage is full of character and beautifully furnished in a style in keeping with this historic ancient stannary town of Lostwithiel.

Surrounded by what has often been described as the loveliest inland scenery in Cornwall and located in a beautiful wooded valley the town is ideally placed for exploring the whole county within easy reach of the coast and moors.

The moment you arrive and enter this cottage, you will sense the character and appreciate the quality of furnishings which exudes throughout.

Through the kitchen then into the quaint dining room before entering the sitting room with its massive comfortable settee and a woodburner for cosy evenings on the cooler nights.

There are two traditionally furnished bedrooms here which along with the bathroom are situated on the first floor.

Outside at the rear of the cottage a flight of steps will take you along a path leading to a private elevated patio with splendid views over this lovely old town.

Just a short stroll from the cottage will take you to the heart of this historic town with numerous antique shops as well as contemporary art and craft shops, many located down the hidden lanes the town is famous for.

A choice of several excellent pubs and restaurants are all within a few minutes’ walk with the closest being the Restormel Lodge just a couple of doors away offering seasonal Cornish produce in its conservatory restaurant.

For the sports enthusiasts the Golf and Country club offers a challenging 18 hole golf course as well as tennis and swimming.

Fishermen will be able to obtain licences for salmon and trout fishing and horse riding can be enjoyed in a nearby village.

With splendid walks right from the door and so much to see and explore in the locality this is an excellent cottage to be enjoyed all year round.

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.
