    “Comfortable, clean and well located in the town.”

    Second bedroom is a bit of a squeeze but suited our 12 and 8 year olds fine. The owners kindly let us use an outside socket to charge our electric car. We would be very happy to return to Talbot Cottages.

    Thank you for the great feedback score. We are pleased that you found our place comfortable and clean. Our property does have the added benefit of an outside electric socket, and we were happy to accommodate your requirements; you were our first visitor requesting charging facilities. We hope you will return soon. We will welcome you back again, anytime. Property Owner

Old Talbot Cottages

Old Talbot Cottages consists of two wonderful holiday homes resting at the heart of the quaint town of Lostwithiel in the popular holiday destination of Cornwall. The collection offers shared, off-road parking, a rarity in the town and a close proximity to the centre of Lostwithiel where you'll find all of your essential amenities, making it perfectly suited for families and friends looking to explore Cornwall. You can savour fresh fish and chips as you soak in the sights with a walk along the banks of the River Fowey, enjoy a well-deserved drink in the beer garden at The Globe Inn, or pick up some last-minute ingredients with a trip to the Co-op. Immerse yourself in the local history with a tour of Lostwithiel Museum, or marvel at the medieval remains of Restormel Castle, dating back to the 13th century and offering panoramic views across the surrounding countryside from its position on the hilltop. Or take the family to spend a fun-filled day out at Porfell Wildlife Park & Sanctuary, where you can come face-to-face with a variety of exotic animals and birds, wander through the ancient woodland, or explore the authentic African Plains village, with traditional huts built with mud and wicker. The cottages also lie near the Eden Project, a world-famous eco-park made up of biome domes nestled in a reclaimed clay pit, home to the largest indoor rainforest in the world as well as a vibrant botanical garden, promising a fascinating experience for all the family. Jump in the car and journey to the nearby Carlyon Bay, where thrill-seekers can try their hand at jet skiing or surfing, or for a more leisurely experience, bask in the sun's rays with a good book as you lounge on the sand. Old Talbot Cottages are expertly positioned for guests to unlock and explore all the wonders of the Cornish coast and countryside.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
