  • "Superb property in a lovely secluded location."

    Even better than the listings though these may have been updated. We were blessed with a beautiful sunny week, so didn't get to use all the inside space to its full advantage, but the outside table seated our 8 comfortably for every meal. Wonderful views across the valley too. Good short drive access (through narrow Cornish lanes) to beautiful Lantic and Lansallos National Trust beaches if you have two strong legs for the walks down and back up!

    An information pack about the house would be useful.

  • "The house was superb and the only think we lacked was an outside table for alfresco dining."

    The photographs on your site don't do justice to to the wonderful position of the property and its extensive grounds and views. We had a fab time Thanks

  • "The house had some problems with the heating system so we had to have engineers out on more that than one occasion, but the owners went above and beyond to try and get it sorted quickly."

    There was also an issue with the en suite shower not being hot but they sorted that quickly. Think because it's a new home it's just having some teething problems, especially as it is now winter and you find these things out. Otherwise the house is lovely, done up really well, has all the equipment needed and more. Lovely touches like scones and wine on arrival

  • "Stunning property and location."

    I booked last minute for a family holiday with our three year old and absolutely loved staying at the farmhouse. The owners have gone to town with the decor of the property with Laura Ashley furnishings, lovely antiques and spacious living rooms. The property is very well equipped, a luxury to stay here. The gardens and Woodlands are stunning, my son loved exploring the grounds. I can't highly recommend this property enough and will definitely be booking again in the near future.

  • "We felt extremely lucky to have been able to book this wonderful house."

    Everything was newly refurbished, it was beautifully decorated, and the equipment was all brand new throughout the house. It is in a delightfully secluded location. There is a lovely garden with seating, perfect for a drink in the evening. The host was exceptionally helpful and welcoming, and easy to contact when we wanted some information about the local area. She went to great lengths to ensure that our stay was comfortable and that we had everything we needed. She provided a complimentary welcome pack including milk, bread, tea, coffee, wine, scones and cream. If you want a quiet and peaceful environment with all the mod-cons, then this is for you. We could not have asked for a better place to stay or a warmer welcome.

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.
