  • “We had a lovely week in Lostwithiel - the town is very pretty and has good amenities.”

    The Coop is particularly well organised In light of the current pandemic and well stocked. There are lots of things to do in the area and the town is a good base. We mostly enjoyed our stay in the cottage. Do be aware that the church bells close by ring every 15 minutes including through the night. We knew this ahead of our stay due to other feedback we had read but it is worth considering if you have young children likely to woken early in the morning! ...

    The Coop is particularly well organised In light of the current pandemic and well stocked. There are lots of things to do in the area and the town is a good base. We mostly enjoyed our stay in the cottage. Do be aware that the church bells close by ring every 15 minutes including through the night. We knew this ahead of our stay due to other feedback we had read but it is worth considering if you have young children likely to woken early in the morning! Looking at the feedback given by other visitors to this cottage, I’m not sure how much of what is said is taken on board by the owner. There is very little information on what to do with rubbish and recycling - a very clear notice on the pin board in the kitchen would be welcome. What day is the rubbish out out? Where are the nearest recycling facilities? I can only assume that as this property is a holiday let that the local rubbish collections actually don’t apply and that each visitor is responsible for their own rubbish. This needs to be made clear in either instance. Other properties on the road had recycling bags/containers but nothing like this could be found in the property itself. We contacted the telephone number provided but had no response. The house was generally clean and the bedding and towels provided were of a good standard but things such as dishes and cutlery hadn’t been checked carefully. Some had been put back in the cupboards/drawers that weren’t cleaned to a satisfactory standard. The high chair provided was of a suitable size and standard but again wasn’t particularly clean. The double bed and the twin beds need some attention - they were very squeaky. Upon removing the mattress from one of the twin beds, it was discovered that there were no slats, only two pieces of very thin plywood, one of which had bowed and had a pillow on top presumably to disguise the dip in the bed. One really helpful change to make would be to add child locks to the drawers and cupboards. The downstairs area is all one room and as a family staying with a toddler, there was no way of closing off the kitchen and therefore access to cupboards especially those containing cleaning chemicals. Magnetic drawer and cupboard catches that can be “switched off” are available and easily installed. Overall we enjoyed our stay and should the necessary tweaks and changes be made, would return to this cottage. We would certainly return to Lostwithiel as it is a lovely quiet place in which to stay with lots of interesting places to visit nearby.

The property

This wonderful, terraced cottage is situated in the ancient stannary town of Lostwithiel, located in North Street, one of the oldest streets in the town.

Upon entering Lostwithiel, you feel a sense of history all around you, making this a wonderful base for your holiday.

The Smithy is full of character and upon entering, you will immediately feel at home.

Downstairs passing through the entrance hall you enter a large open plan living room, dining area and fully accommodating kitchen with a view out onto the street.

The living room holds a sofa bed should you require extra space for the whole family to come along.

Adjoining the living room is a downstairs utility room with a full-sized shower room.

The living room also backs onto a picturesque courtyard, with folding doors which completely open out to let in the summer breeze.

This south-facing area is a little suntrap and contains a barbecue and seating arrangement for alfresco dining.

A lovely feature of the living room is a woodburning stove which is very efficient and heats up the cottage very quickly - the perfect way to finish up a cosy evening.

Upstairs are three bedrooms, a double with Juliet balcony and en-suite shower room, a twin with an en-suite bathroom and the bunk bed room, a very popular room with children, but is also suitable for adults.

Lostwithiel dates back to the 12th century yet is one of the most vibrant and lively communities in Cornwall.

Known as the antiques capital of Cornwall and a regular host for the Antiques Roadshow on TV, there are also a wide range of excellent independent shops, a wonderful deli and superb pubs and award-winning restaurants, one of the best being directly opposite your cottage.

Two perfect spots for family picnics are both just a short walk from The Smithy, down to the river and next to the medieval bridge where tables and picnic benches are available, whilst slightly further is the stroll to Restormel Castle which offers beautiful views over the Fowey River estuary.

This cottage is the ideal base in summer for enjoying the beautiful beaches and is also a perfect base for a winter escape where you can enjoy walks, sitting by the fire and enjoying a drink in the local pubs.

The Smithy really is the perfect home for exploring Cornwall at your leisure.

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.
