Discover three beautiful bedrooms, with two doubles served by a family bathroom, and a spacious master bedroom, home to a king-size bed, TV, walk-in wardrobe, along with a vibrant aqua-blue tiled en-suite shower room, with each bedroom featuring a patio door so you can step out to breakfast in the sunshine.

Head upstairs to find the heart of the home beneath exposed timber beams of the dramatic apex ceiling; a woodburning stove sits in the corner before the lovely three-piece blue leather reclining sofa suite, with a TV equipped with a Sonos sound bar for added special effects, it makes the sitting area a perfect spot to wind down at the end of a busy day.

A huge, well-equipped kitchen rests at the other end of the room, beautifully fitted and with all the appliances and space you need, you can perch at the breakfast bar with a glass of wine while the food is prepared by the chef of the group, before all coming together at the dining table in the centre.

The location of the property is just a stone's throw from the local farm shop, Colwith Farm Shop, selling fresh and delicious local produce including their own potatoes, you can pick up all your food necessities from here, with a pub close by too in nearby Lanlivery called The Crown Inn, you can expect a menu full of locally sourced dishes and real ales.

The nearest town is Lostwithiel, renowned for its antiques trade so you may return home with more luggage than you brought with you, and home to a host of lovely shops and eateries, all settled around the River Fowey.

Explore the beauty of the Fowey Valley by travelling along the river itself, hiring a kayak or canoe from Encounter Cornwall based in Golant, or arranging a river exploration for those with less experience, taking in the scenic views from the water.

Venture down to the town of Fowey on the south coast of Cornwall, here you can enjoy walks along the harbour, sampling the many restaurants and pubs, with many serving fresh locally caught fish, visiting Readymoney Cove and St Catherine's Castle, and taking an exciting sea cruise heading out of the estuary.

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.
