  • "Great cottage - excellently equipped and very comfortable."

    Really close to town (albeit up a very steep hill!) Would definitely stay again.

  • "Lovely cottage, bigger than we expected so very pleased."

    The only concern for the winter months is that the outside light up the path was obscured by the bushes around the gate and we had to bend down to avoid getting wet from the bushes going in & out gate. These need to be trimmed extensively so the light can work. Apart from that it was a good base to visit family.

  • "Spotless and comfortable cottage."

    Lostwithiel has lots to offer, mooching round the independent shops and lovely walks. Perfect hosts. I could have done without the Sykes email reminding us of how to leave the property (this arrived within a few hours of our arrival!) Otherwise perfect. Thank you.

  • "We had a wonderful stat at Willow Cottage."

    The accommodation was perfect; exactly as described and very comfortable. We had an issue with the TV/DVD player and the owner responded very quickly and came out to help. Would definitely stay at Willow Cottage again in the future if we are visiting the area.

  • "We loved this cottage - quietly tucked away in Lostwithiel."

    We had a fabulous stay over a bank holiday weekend. There was everything we would have needed for a self catering weekend, however we ate out. It was very handy for Fowey and we discovered a lovely breakfast at The Duchy of Cornwall Nurseries only 5 mins away (in a teepee tent) Christian (the owner) popped by with fresh Scones and clotted cream which was a lovely touch and having arrived late on the Friday night it was great to find milk in the fridge. We are 2 adults with 12 & 13 yr old sons. The cottage was perfect for the four of us (and of course the WIFI kept all our 'gadgets' working). We parked every evening in the Free car park a few minutes away. It's about 40 mins to the Eden Project and both Lanhydrock and Restormel Castle (gorgeous views - take a picnic) are right on the doorstep.

  • "Fantastic holiday cottage in the centre of Cornwall."

    Easy access to the North and South coast, Eden project just down the road. Christian was very helpful, providing more logs for the wood burner mid-week at a reasonable cost. The cottage is warm and cosy with everything you need for a self catering holiday. Recommended, the Earl of Chatham pub in the village, friendly local with awesome Sunday lunch. Best pastie, Quay bakery in Fowey. We would definitely look to stay at Willow Cottage again.

  • "Not happy that the toilet and bathroom were leading directly off the kitchen."

    Not easy to get onto one of the single beds which was built up on the wall . We were not made aware of this. We were made aware of the difficulty with parking close by but did not realise the steep path to walk up to the cottage, difficult for elderly people with luggage and shopping.

  • "The cottage was awesome."

    Modern, clean and extremely comfortable - I'd recommend anyone staying here. Lostwithiel is an ideal location to go travelling from with lots to see and do in the area. About an hour drive over to Truro and an easy drive to St Ives. Plus there are locally run train services run by enthusiasts which were great fun. Overall, I'd heartily recommend. James

The property

A fully-refurbished detached Cornwall self-catering cottage, on a pedestrianised lane in the county town of Lostwithiel.

This lovely cottage has been tastefully furnished throughout, with quality fixtures and fittings, and attractive slate tiling.

This beautiful cottage has two bedrooms, a woodburner in the sitting room, a handmade kitchen and its own secluded sun trap patio, perfect for alfresco dining.

Lostwithiel, once deemed to be capital of Cornwall, is steeped in medieval history and there are numerous interesting buildings to visit including Lostwithiel's 13th century Great Hall and the imposing ruins of Restormel Castle.

From this Lostwithiel cottage you are just 7 miles from the picturesque harbour and winding narrow streets of Fowey and 20 minutes' drive from the beautiful sandy beaches around St Austell Bay.

And of course there is always something new happening at the top tourist attraction of the Eden Project.

A superb Lostwithiel cottage base for touring this beautiful region.

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.
