The Lostwithiel Manor Estate sits deep in the Cornish countryside, four miles from Lostwithiel. The estate is phenomenal, boasting spectacular landscaped gardens, a lake, manicured lawns, a deer park, parkland, fascinating historic monuments, miles of cycling and hiking tracks, orchards and a tennis court. Guests enjoy endless entertainment. The estate managers boast a prestigious list of local partners who can offer additional services to ensure that you experience the holiday of your dreams. Their own private chef can cater for special events or work with a highly professional catering team. The estate hosts a number of special community annual events.

Lothwithiel Manor is a wildly romantic manor house that has been beautifully refurbished by the remarkable Sarah Fortescue Designs, bringing vitality and bold colour to the rooms together with the best of Cornish craftmanship. The living spaces and bedrooms are astounding, all with different styles and moods. The stately reception rooms are lavish and brilliantly furnished yet still feel homely and very welcoming. Roaring open fires welcome you in the cooler months and add atmosphere and a warm ambience. The main living room is drowned in magical sunlight and is full of sumptuous furniture, together with its giant fireplace, beautiful period features and oversized flower arrangements. Its ceiling cornicing and plaster mouldings are works of art themselves. You can get lost in a novel in the library, settle down with a pot of tea and the Sunday newspapers or enjoy a movie using the pop-up projector. You can dine like royalty by candlelight in the atmospheric, panelled dining room with the open fire lit and the ultra long table beautifully set with fine glass and china. There are additional living spaces, some cosy and inviting, perfect for pre-dinner drinks and others perfect for informal breakfasts and planning the days activities. The manor house enjoys exquisite wallpapers and lavish fabrics which together with sumptuous furnishings make for extravagant holiday living. One room is opulent, moody and rich in colour whilst another is playful with garden inspired wallpaper and bright light beaming through the period windows. The kitchen is a remarkable wonder with the very best of appliances and such amazing style. Bluetooth speakers, television and boardgames are all supplied for your enjoyment plus guests enjoy use of the stable games room.

Lostwithiel Manor offers nine opulent bedrooms, all vibrant luxurious havens with fabulous colour palettes and luxurious soft furnishings. Every room is stunning, beautifully styled with incredible attention to detail. There are a mix of kingsize beds and twins, all dressed with crisp cottons and co-ordinating soft furnishings. If you are lucky, you may even enjoy the four poster bed in the Kings Bedroom where you will be mesmerised by the estate views through its vast Palladian windows. Each of the nine ensuite bathrooms enjoys elegant wallpapers, a luxurious ambience, fragrant organic toiletries and fluffy white bathrobes and towels. You will sleep and bathe like kings and queens in exquisite surroundings. The imperial staircase leading from the ground floor to the upper bedrooms is seriously impressive with the most fabulous frescoes decorating the walls.

The grounds of Lothwithiel Manor are totally amazing. Within its lush acres, you can picnic by the lake or wild swim, stroll along grassy banks watching the nearby flocks of sheep, enjoy the shade of ancient trees, sip cocktails on the terrace, enjoy barbecues or family games in the parkland. You can stroll through the deer park watching the grazing fallow deer who have nibbled on the park’s lush grass since the days of the Domesday Book and head to the centuries-old trees in the ancient woodland. Adjacent to the deer park is the estate cricket pitch where you can watch one of the regular weekend matches, one of the estate’s most popular summertime traditions. The enchanting gardens offer beauty and vibrant colour. The Dorothy Garden boasts beautiful fountains and the Shrubbery offers a multitude of colour pops with thirty four different varieties of hydrangeas and vivid pink and purple rhododendrons and azaleas. The Stewardry Walk offers a palm-fringed paradise and a tropical fountain. The gardens also feature Lady Hamilton’s marble bath, a waterfall, a pool, magnolias and a huge array of other exotic plants. The estate’s magnificent parkland slopes gently towards the lake offering that true countryside feel. The estate’s ‘living museum’, boasts impressive monuments including the obelisk which soars 123 feet into the sky. You can put your running shoes on and explore the many acres of land listening to birdsong and sheep for company or cycle. You can also enjoy yoga, play tennis or just relax on beautiful outdoor furniture with your holiday read. Children love collecting morning eggs from the estate chickens or foraging for wild garlic to make pesto and blackberries for beloved crumbles. You can also pick fresh produce from the kitchen garden for supper. In the autumn, you are welcome to pick apples from the orchard.

Guests staying at Lostwithiel Manor can marry in the estate’s 800 year old church, enjoy a civil or humanist ceremony in the house or celebrate with an outdoor wedding in the Dorothy Garden, the Georgian Bathhouse, in a magical spot by the lake or on the lawn. Wedding feasts can be taken in the Smoking Room or outdoors watching the sunset by crackling fire pits. The 14th century church is stunning with ancient stained glass windows and an intimate atmosphere. The estate managers offer a wide range of food and drink options including fine dining, summer barbecues, hearty feasts, cheese and wine stations and party breakfasts. Special options include fireworks, gin and whisky tastings in the drawing room, champagne and oysters served in the fernery and presented in a spectacular 19th century marble ice bath, tractor trailer rides to admire the night sky on Druid’s Hill, croquet on the lawn, trips to the beach and much more. Oliver’s Travels feature all of the estate properties so your guests can join in the fun and enjoy the wedding during a holiday.

To make your holiday even more special, the estate’s local partners offer mountain and electric bike hire, yoga instruction, tennis coaching and sports rehab, sports massage, personal training and fitness classes.

Every event is superb and you will feel privileged to be a participant!

From this gorgeous countryside spot, you can visit both the north and south coasts of Cornwall, explore the moors and enjoy the most delicious cuisine imaginable.

Lostwithiel Manor is located on the fabulous Lostwithiel Manor Estate with its acres of parkland, deer park, woodland, lakes and stunning gardens. The estate is wondrous with spectacular scenery and brilliant spots of picnics and relaxing. Guests are welcome to enjoy wild swimming in the lake and to forage or pick produce from the kitchen garden. Close by, you can enjoy Talland Bay and Lansallos Beach for a quick dip or venture further to the beautiful beaches on the north or south coast of Cornwall. The estate is brilliant for walking and cycling plus there are many stunning areas to discover outside of the estate.

Cornwall is known as a foodie paradise and there are plenty of places close by where you can enjoy delicious goodies and meals. There are also a number of food festivals including the St Ives Food and Drink Festival, Truro Food Festival and the Mevagissey Shanty Festival.

Restormel Castle lies by the River Fowey near Lostwithiel. One of the four chief Norman castles of Cornwall, it is notable for its perfectly circular design. Once a luxurious residence of the Earl of Cornwall, it was ruined by the 16th century and is now under the supervision of the English Heritage. It is a beautiful picnic spot.

A trip down to Fowey is a must! The Fowey estuary is a glorious sight with Fowey on one side at the mouth of the River Fowey and the gorgeous town of Polruan on the other. There are regular passenger ferries to and from Polruan and a car ferry to Boddinick. The ferry house was originally the du Maurier family home and later the home of Angela du Maurier, Daphne’s sister. As well as being incredibly pretty, Fowey enjoys a rich history. During the Second World War, Fowey was the centre for air-sea rescue and one of the places from which the D-Day invasions were launched. St Catherine’s Point is on the Fowey side of the harbour entrance where it functioned as a lighthouse in medieval times. St Catherine’s Castle below was built during the reign of Henry VIII to defend the harbour entrance. It is accessible when walking from the pretty Readymoney Cove. On Fore Street you will find the Old House of Foye, a medieval house built in 1430. It is now a shop but the walls, beamed interior and fireplace are pretty much the same. During the summer, Fowey Town Hall’s museum and small aquarium is open. Daphne du Maurier is celebrated with the Du Maurier Festival each May and at the Literacy Centre next to the church.

There are some amazing sandy beaches on the south coast. Par Sands, close to the village of Par and four miles from St Austell, boasts a huge expanse of sand backed by pretty dunes. Polkerris Beach magically combines an idyllic sandy cove and stunning coastline with an array of entertaining watersports. You can stand up paddleboard, learn to sail and windsurf, explore the coastline in a kayak or simply enjoy exploring the rock pools and building sandcastles. There is a wonderful beach restaurant and waterside pub. The National Trust’s dreamy Lantic Bay is a great spot for paddling and for a picnic. It is well worth the climb back up and the views from the top are amazing. To the North, the surfers favourite, Newquay, is less than a 50-minute drive while popular Padstow is also within easy reach. The traditional fishing village of Port Isaac, best known for being the setting off the popular TV series Doc Martin, is also less than an hour away.

Mevagissey lies within a UNESCO Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is another working harbour, nestled on the unspoilt dramatic Cornish coastline. Mevagissey boasts an aquarium, museum, seafood restaurants, atmospheric pubs, watersports, beautiful gardens, cycle trails and much more. You can walk from the town to the stunning Lost Gardens of Heligan.

This might be a great opportunity for children to take some watersports tuition.

Fowey boasts an aquarium, a museum, St Catherine’s Castle and lots of boating. If you are staying during August, the Fowey Regatta is fabulous. There are boats, floats, rafts, fireworks and a procession through the town with everyone dressed in fabulous costumes. There are prizes for the best costumes. Children love spending time with ‘The Bird Lady of Fowey’ at Lescrow Farm and her majestic birds. They can be up close with owls, Loki the hawk and others. If is a fabulous experience that they will not forget.

It is very easy to hire your own boat on the estuary or you can take one of the many boat trips. Fowey River Trips and Sea Cruises offer great value for money trips to see Daphne du Maurier’s house, Bodinnick Quay, Penmarlam Quay, the China Clay Factory, Polruan and lots more. Encounter Cornwall run daily guided canoe trips and kayak hire on the estuary. There are two 3 hour trips. The Creeks and Backwaters tour paddles upriver and the Harbours and Beaches tour paddles down to Fowey Harbour and the sea on low tide.

The fascinating Eden Project is roughly half an hour away. It is one of Cornwall’s most popular attractions, nestled in a huge crater where massive Biomes house the largest rainforest in captivity together with stunning plants, exhibitions and striking contemporary gardens and summer concerts. The Eden Project is an educational charity offering year round family events and a popular ice rink. Adrenalin Quarry is another popular excursion with an inflatable aqua park, zip wires and a giant clifftop swing.

It you are staying in the autumn, there are several places to take children to choose a prize pumpkin. Trevaskis Farm and Trevathan Farm are both popular.
