Positioned in a scenic valley amid an attractive rural farmstead, this superb single storey barn conversion offers a superbly comfortable, contemporary retreat just 1 mile from the town of Lostwithiel, within easy distance of picturesque harbourside villages and beaches.

Famous for its antique shops, the town offers a good range of facilities to include delicatessens, cafes, pubs and restaurants to tickle a variety of taste-buds. A 15 minute drive south will bring you to the desirable seaport of Fowey, colourful and alive with its busy harbour and cobbled lanes offering an eclectic mix of bijou galleries, gift shops, traditional inns and eateries. The world famous Eden Project is also within easy driving distance, hosting giant Biomes of spectacular flora and fauna from all corners of the globe. The local area is a haven for walkers and Bodmin Moor will evoke the myth and legend for which it is famous. There are numerous circular walks; the South West Coast Path takes you to secluded beaches and coves.

About the location

LOSTWITHIEL

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.

Note: Babies welcome, regretfully no children over the age of two years. Children and pets to be supervised around livestock.
