    Ideal for exploring the Cornish countryside and coastline, although Lerryn itself is beautiful with lovely walks too. Would highly recommend.

  • "Whilst we picked the wrong week in terms of the weather, we had a lovely time staying at Little Oaklands!"

    Directions and arrival instructions were great, and we were met by our lovely hosts and greeted with some lovely welcome goodies in our kitchen, for us and our pups. I always overpack as you never know what will be supplied, but frankly everything we could have wanted was supplied, from books and board games, down to a doggy towel and bowl! Great location, incredibly peaceful, and the puppers absolutely adored the huge garden and didn't want to leave. Many thanks! xx

    Thank you for your lovely comments. So pleased you enjoyed your stay (despite the weather!). Property Owner

    The owners are so welcoming and little Oaklands is beautiful with absolutely stunning grounds.

Everything was perfect and we would highly recommend this accommodation. Thank you Mark and Sheila.

The property

Situated between the picturesque riverside village of Lerryn and the historic town of Lostwithiel is Little Oaklands, a delightful two-bedroom semi-detached holiday let.

Enjoying a superb, rural location in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on a quiet country lane, Little Oaklands provides a tranquil setting but is not far from Lerryn and Lostwithiel for pubs, dining out or for essentials.

Little Oaklands is a wonderful dog-friendly, base for couples or a family of four with a superb, very large garden.

Leave your vehicle in one of two off-road parking spaces adjacent to your accommodation.

Step into the well-equipped kitchen, which features a dishwasher and washing machine, here you can impress your guests with delicious home-cooked meals ready to enjoy at the dining table for four.

If the weather is nice, why not dine alfresco out on your private decking, or on the picnic bench on the large private lawn?

The picturesque village of Lerryn is just a short drive away.

Set beside the tidal River Lerryn, upstream from the popular town of Fowey, there are riverside footpaths and woods to explore and easy launching for kayaks and stand-up paddle boards from the riverbank at high tide.

The village of Lerryn nestles in a wooded valley where an ancient stone bridge spans the river and steppingstones appear at low tide.

The ancient town of Lostwithiel (1.7 miles) is a thriving small town with the River Fowey running through it.

Lostwithiel has many craft, antique and boutique shops, along with supermarket, butchers, deli, cafes, pubs, restaurants and takeaways.

The coastline is close by with unspoilt, secret beaches and coves such as Lantic Bay and Lansallos beach 6.4 miles away.

Other nearby attractions include South West Coast path, Eden Project (7.6 miles), Lost Gardens of Heligan (11 miles) and many National Trust properties and gardens such as Lanhydrock (4 miles).

Further afield, you will find the bustling town of Fowey, home to the Fowey Aquarium, St Catherine’s Castle, the National Trust site of Fowey Estaury and the stunning Readymoney Cove.

Little Oaklands is an ideal base from which to explore Cornwall’s beautiful countryside and coast.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

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.
