    “Lovely quirky cottage in a beautiful village.”

    Very warm and cosy, well stocked with everything we needed. And we were blessed with great weather!

The property

Mote Cottage is a period end of terrace cottage on two levels in Lerryn, just round the corner from the ancient stone bridge and picturesque creek and a two minute stroll from the pub and shop.

The cottage is well equipped by thoughtful owners and careful restoration has preserved the cottage’s original charm with thick, knobbly walls, beams, some low ceilings.

Step through the front door into the sun lounge/breakfast room with French windows to the patio and lead through to the kitchen, at this level there is a shower-room.

Step down to length-of-cottage living/dining room with tiled floor, rugs and beams and a cosy wood-burning stove.

Head upstairs to two bedrooms – a lovely, light double, and an L-shaped room with two single beds and a family bathroom.

Outside is a small enclosed suntrap courtyard with patio garden furniture and BBQ.

Perfect for a couple or small family.

About the location


Lostwithiel 3 miles; Bodmin 10 miles.

For those seeking peace, tranquillity and the unspoilt splendour of Cornwall’s ‘softer’ southern coast there can be few finer spots than Lerryn. Sitting at the very point where the River Lerryn joins the highest tidal reach of a creek leading up from the Fowey estuary, the village has a timeless, natural beauty no matter the season. Footpaths meander through the woods and along the river bank while out on the water the small boats owned by local residents provide another means of travelling down stream to Fowey (3.5miles) for shopping or just something to do in wonderful surroundings. The village boasts an award winning pub/restaurant and has a small shop and post office. Nearby Lostwithiel is renowned also for its good restaurants and antique shops. The stunning Eden Project (8 miles), the Shipwreck Harbour at Charlestown, the lovely fishing village and harbour of Mevagissey, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the stately home and gardens at Lanhydrock (NT) can all be reached in under half an hour while Padstow and the rolling surf of the north coast are just over 20 miles away.
