    "Wow" is what we all said when we first saw how big the inside of the cottage was, how spacious, and how well equipped. The location - close to everything essential - in particular a pub, Chinese take-away, and Londis store, made this cottage an ideal base. The adverts says just one bathroom, but there was a toilet downstairs too, which with five of us was a blessing. We'd taken the dog too, and had wondered whether that would be a niusance, but it made us get out and explore the local area, and the early morning views when walking, either up the Restomel Road, or in the woods nearby were amazing. Lanhydrock isn't far away and that's a great walk too. Fran's Bakery sell amazing pasties, and the Duchy of Cornwall Nursery serves a great cream tea. Fowey is very picturesque too and is only a few minutes drive. During our long weekend, we walked miles, ate too much, drank too much, and had a great time. If we'd been in poor accommodation the whole weekend wouldn't have been anywhere near as good.

About the location

LOSTWITHIEL

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.
