    “We had a lovely stay at Nightingale Cottage.”

    Very well equips and clean. The cottage is in a great location for exploring different parts of Cornwall. We would happily stay at Nightingale again. The only thing we did find was still bring March, during our stay, at times it was a little on the cool side in the cottage.

    Evening There are extra modern heaters on the wall in both bedroom and lounge area it is all listed in the handover folder if you got chilly....also wood burning stove in bedroom.... but i'm surprised as it's on control set at 21 so it should always be warm with the underfloor heating. i will check the controls to make sure no one has fiddled with them.., see you again hopefully glad you enjoyed our little cottage .... thank you Property Owner

About the location


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.
