In Lerryn, a two minute stroll from the pub, shop and woodland walks along the creek, a semi-detached Georgian cottage on two levels with lovely long meadow and woodland views to the creek.
This cottage has been owned and loved by generations of the same family, and you will find your own family will love it just as much.
Step down into the living room which has a cosy wood burning stove, dining table and chairs, and a window seat with a view over the village; there is a second smaller living room with toys and sofa bed (for alternative sleeping), a dining room leading down via a few steps to the smart fitted kitchen with a utility area (beware low lintel), sink and toilet.
Head upstairs to three bedrooms – a double with lovely creek views, and two twin rooms, (one with 2'6'' beds).
There is a large, enclosed garden, accessed by shallow steps, with a big patio, garden furniture and BBQ, large lawn and shady trees.
A hidden, welcoming gem, a good location for families, walkers, artists and painters.
It’s a short drive to nearby Lostwithiel with its shops, pub, restaurants, castle and railway station, or the pretty fishing village of Fowey.

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: Fairly steep driveway (parking for one large or two small cars; additional free parking available by village green).
