Lanwithan Cottages

Our Cottages


Lanwithan Cottages is a small family-run business that has been catering for holidaying in Cornwall for decades. With the resulting expertise and prioritising a personal touch, we provide niche accommodation on our ancestral farm estate. We care for our guests as on-site hosts and for our holiday homes as owners. Stay with us to see for yourselves.

Choose one of our well-appointed self-catering cottages, each with its individual character and history, and book your holiday home with us in the heart of Cornwall. Lanwithan Cottages offer something for everyone in 3 different locations: on Lanwithan Estate, in Lostwithiel or waterside near Truro.


This handsome Georgian manor house was built with Cornish granite by our family as their holiday home in the sun. First completed in 1827, its two wings have been converted into spacious holiday accommodation surrounded by acres of gardens, parkland and fields running down to the river Fowey. Sheep and cattle peacefully graze the fields alongside the abundant wildlife.

Our charming, original stone farm cottages are dotted around the estate. There is plenty of space for outdoor playing and dining and ample off-road parking. So much more than a cottage – relax and sip your drink in the gardens, picnic in the cider orchard, play Pitch and Putt or explore the many pathways to enjoy the peace and natural beauty of Lanwithan estate. Other facilities include a games room, swings and see-saw, a level play area perfect for football and a laundry room with washing machines and tumble dryers as well as outdoor clothes lines for eco-friendly laundry drying.

Sustainability matters. As a farm we pay for all our water, and our spring-fed ponds and rain-water butts help with watering pots and borders when necessary. Property roofs are insulated, and we use A-rated appliances and LED light bulbs. We re-use where possible and recycle and reduce household and garden waste. Visitors are encouraged to separate their waste also.

You can holiday with us in Lostwithiel without a car thanks to direct rail and coach links and local bus services. We are a five-minute walk from the train station and from the coach stop. You can eat local food locally and buy local produce in town. There is also a popular Farmers’ Market and a variety of craft shops sell locally produced ware. Many places in Cornwall including Looe, St Ives, Falmouth and Newquay can be reached via the scenic Cornish branch train lines and some attractions like Eden and Heligan are accessible by public transport.

There is an extensive cycle network connected to the National Cycle Network. The Lanhydrock Cycle Hub and the Camel Trail are both popular and famous. The Southwest Coast Path meanders along the Cornish cliffs and coves. Uncountable public footpaths criss-cross the countryside and moorland, inviting visitors for a leisurely stroll, a longer walk or a proper hike such as following the Saints Way.


Bridgend is our small mid-terrace cottage situated close to Lostwithiel town centre and only a short walk from Lanwithan Estate. This cottage is a convenient base for those who enjoy the countryside and village life alike.


Tucked away in the hamlet of Malpas, just outside Truro, the capital of Cornwall, our two waterside properties provide stunning views across the Fal estuary from their private, sunny gardens. Lorna’s and Freda’s share a private quay and provide a unique setting for water-related activities as well as wildlife spotting. Centrally located, they are perfect for exploring all corners of Cornwall.
