  • "This is our second holiday at 5 Bodmin Hill."

    It is a rare holiday 3 bedroom property that 3 adult couples and a dog can share the space without feeling cramped. Lostwithiel is a great base for touring Cornwall by car or train. It also has plenty of choice for food.

  • "It was a lovely cottage, and Lostwithiel a great base to explore that part of Cornwall."

    Everything was clean and comfortable, and the kitchen was well equipped. The garden was secure enough for our bouncy spaniel. We had a very enjoyable week (despite less than ideal weather) and managed lots of fabulous walks, and some castles and gardens, as well a few days on the beach. Kayaking at Fowey was also fun. The only downside is that the parking at the cottage wasn't easy - it wasn't really a problem for us, or put us off from returning, but it might be for anyone with mobility problems.

  • "What a beautiful cottage, much more room than it looks in the photos."

    Two lounges, a downstairs loo, and a gorgeous country kitchen. The contemporary bathroom has a bath with shower over. So much storage, really comfy beds and everything you need for a home from home stay. Nice and warm too. The landlord was very on the ball with any issues we had and the neighbours are super friendly. Right in the town , handy with everything on the doorstep. Very clean , roomy and pretty garden to top it off. A very pleasant stay! Highly recommend. Thank you xx

  • "A lovely cottage, well equipped with a very pretty enclosed garden."

    Ideal for us with our small dog. Parking was easy if you arrive early afternoon, before people finish work there was a space right opposite the house which made unloading and reloading so much easier. Lostwithiel itself is lovely, only has a few pubs, but the food in The globe, Earl of Chatham and The Kings Arms was really good. These were also dog friendly which suited us down to the ground. Some lovely walks along the river, up to the castle and through the Lanhydrock Estate to Bodmin parkway where we caught the train back. 5 minutes and you're back in Lostwithiel. A little gem.

  • "April is a wonderful month to appreciate the rhododendrons at Heligan."

    Our cottage was well situated for Heligan, Lanhydrock, Eden Project, Wheal Martyn, the harbour at Charlestown, to name just a few. Polkerris beach is delightful ! The garden at number 5 is delightful, enjoyed massively by children, dog and adults alike. I certainly recommend Sykes Cottages.

    It was a great cottage very much enjoyed it was very good if you have dog's with a good size kitchen and safe enclosed garden only one thing would be a good idea to have a light near the back door or by the patio a bit dark when you walk back down the steps otherwise all good

  • "Great location."

    A lovely home away from home. Although the cottage was lovely and beautifully presented, we still felt comfortable enough to stay there with two dogs and 2 energetic boys without worrying they were going to destroy anything! The only issue is parking- which is what you would expect in this central location in a period property-we were fine parking a bit further up the hill and walking when needed, but my mum is registered disabled and it was a bit of a pain for her- but we got round it and it’s well worth it for the location. Absolutely beautiful cottage and very deceptive in space-large inside with a lovely garden area and views over the hills to the back of the house. 2 minute walk to lovely pubs, shops and riverside which has benches and public barbecues. Neighbours all friendly. We stayed as 4 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs and had plenty of room. Location great for days out to various beaches, Bodmin, Looe and Fowey as well as many other villages and towns. The Lostwithiel museum was great ( and free!) as was a visit to the local Restormel Castle. St Bartholomew’s church in the centre of the town is absolutely beautiful and steeped in history. We would definitely return- in fact we are missing it already! Great owners, fabulous friendly communication and fabulous housekeeping. Many thanks!

    " when they saw the inside of the cottage. It was much bigger, more spacious, and better equipped than we expected. The locals were all friendly (didn't seem like we were still in England), and the location meant it was ideal for everything. Plus, there were some great dog-walks in the area. We'll be back.

    5 we were impressed with the clean spacious cottage. The housekeeper had left useful notes re refuse collection etc. and the owners welcome book was most useful, recommending places to eat, places to visit etc. No. 5 was very conveniently situated for shops especially for getting daily provisions. All in all we really enjoyed our week staying in No.5 and found it a great base for exploring the area.

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.
