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.
Note: Sloping ceilings/low beams upstairs. Low lintel to living room 5’8”. Sorry, no short breaks
