Lostwithiel was once the capital no less of Cornwall, and is a pretty town following the river with walks and kayaking opportunities along its banks. The town is the centre of Cornwall’s antique trade and ‘slow food’ movement, meaning its teeming with antique shops, cafés, fine dining restaurants and excellent pubs serving local ales and home cooked food galore. Within 300 yards is the railway station on the main line from London to Penzance.

Wine and Dine

You are perfectly located to visit Cornwall's famous vineyards with Knightor Winery being 10 minutes away. You are spoilt for choice with award winning restaurants, Chinese, Indian and Fish and Chip takeaways all within 5 minutes walk.    

Culture and History

A great local walk is to Restormel Castle, a Norman stronghold built to defend the county, and is open to the public. If you are feeling fit, continue along the trails into the Lanhydrock Estate towards Respryn Bridge, another 13th-century structure right in the middle of this stunning estate. The house is a must, along with the off road cycle trails, café and bike hire. The River Fowey leading down to the town of Fowey is dotted with pretty little villages, one being Lerryn, the inspiration for Kenneth Graham’s ’Wind in the Willows,’ and as you stroll its wooded banks dotted with flowers, you can see why. Lerryn is also home to Encounter Cornwall, where you can hire kayaks and take part in a guided river trip down to Fowey.

Walks and Activities

The Duchy Nurseries, a great place to dine and buy some local fauna is nearby, as are the Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project, an absolute must for all to wonder at the sheer scale of the domes as you wander amongst tropical trees and plants from around the world. Lanhydrock Golf club, a pay and play course, is just a few miles away and is a great course. Lostwithiel has plenty to offer close by but is also a great place to base yourself for exploring this outstanding county either by car or by train. Beach 7 miles. Shop 300 yards, pub and restaurant 250 yards.
