Lanwithan House Lostwithiel in Fowey Valley

This beautiful granite grade 2 listed Georgian Manor House in gardens with richly coloured azaleas, camellias, rhododendrons and roses was built by my family in 1827. In a sunny, peaceful setting overlooking the Fowey River and surrounded by fields and parklands with mature trees you will enjoy much more than just your cottage.

From many parts of the gardens you can look down to our private river bank on which you may fish or take a quiet walk. We have an 18 hole pitch and putt course in the cider orchard beside the mill pool, and a games room with table tennis, darts and swing ball. We have a children's play area with football play area within sight of swings and seesaw. Dinghy and fishing rods may be hired.

Lanwithan offers a unique haven from which to explore exotic gardens or save sandy coves, breathtaking cliff tops or picturesque fishing villages. Is your holiday long enough? We also have extreme surfing, the national cycle network, scenic circular walks, challenging golf courses, horse riding stables, our medieval castle and the Tudor bridge on your doorstep. We are only 10 minutes' drive from the EDEN Project with its giant botanical biomes, a global first.

We offer accommodation with character which is inspected annually by the English Tourism Council and has been rated as 3 to 4 stars:

The house is equipped with colour Freeview TV and Video/DVD, fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble drier, iron and ironing board, garden furniture and portable BBQ. All rooms have river views, except one of the bathrooms, and either night storage or thermostatically controlled heaters.

The delightfully situated house is in an idyllic hamlet. Its south-facing garden with a path running down to the water’s edge offers peace and tranquility in the very centre of Cornwall. Malpas also has its own public house, the Heron Inn. Here you will find good food and great local, national and international beers and ales. The Nature Conservancy Council have made this part of the estuary “a site of special interest”. At low tide fishermen can dig for bait and the ornithologist may quietly watch some 65 species of beautiful birds exploring the river banks. The heronry opposite will give hours of enjoyment whether you are inside the cottage or outside, having a drink and perhaps a barbeque while enjoying the panoramic views.

Whether you want an active holiday or just a few days in the sun, the area is ideal. It is a walkers’ paradise. The sheltered waters provide a good base for the sailing enthusiast, and the river offers bass, mackerel, whiting and pollack to provide sport for the fisherman. There are scenic river trips from Malpas down to St. Mawes and Falmouth. Tennis courts, swimming pool, golf and driving range are close by. With Truro, a cathedral city, only three miles away, you are able to enjoy excellent shopping and restaurant facilities.
