The charming town of Lostwithiel is nestled in a beautiful wooded valley at the tidal reach of the River Fowey in central Cornwall. From this gorgeous countryside spot, guests can visit both the north and south coasts of Cornwall, explore the moors and enjoy the most delicious cuisine imaginable.

Though there are several properties on the estate, Lostwithiel Stewardry is hidden in a tranquil valley, enjoying the serenity and beauty of its surroundings. Dogs are welcome at this wonderful manor house so you do not need to leave your furry friend at home. The exterior of the property is extremely attractive. Within, lies beautifully decorated rooms with the designs being inspired by the astounding gardens within the estate. Sarah Fortescue has come up trumps with exquisite wallpapers and lavish fabrics which together with sumptuous furnishings make for extravagant holiday living. Each of the seven bedrooms are tasteful and opulent with splashes of vibrant colour. They all enjoy immaculate stylish ensuite bathrooms with the very best of modern fittings.

The living areas of the house are elegant, striking and superbly comfortable. The flow between spaces is fabulous. With a large group, it is always so lovely to find a quiet corner where you can disappear with the Sunday newspapers and cup of tea or perhaps your holiday book, then later get together for group fun. The kitchen is a true wonder, a very happy place with beautiful walls inspired by nature complementing the rich blue cabinetry. The range cooker is fantastic, as is the wooden island. This leads through to a beautiful dining room with a sociable circular table for all fourteen guests, gorgeous artworks and some exquisite bench seating. Huge, beautifully adorned hallways lead through to living rooms, the main one offering vibrant green floral paper and matching furnishings. The giant fireplace is just brilliant on chilly evenings and the huge sash windows drown this gorgeous space in natural light. The window seats are stunning too. You will discover other fireplaces throughout the house, all waiting for you to nestle down and feel very cosseted and special. Sonos sound speakers, television, table tennis and boardgames are all supplied for your enjoyment.

Similarly, the ensuite bathrooms enjoy different colour ways and different styling though every one leaves you feeling thoroughly indulged. They come with luxurious organic toiletries and fluffy white bathrobes and towels.

You will enjoy every minute of your stay inside these sensationally decorated rooms but outside, the estate, in all its glory, beckons. The grounds offer true paradise in Cornwall. The lake is stunning, surrounded by grassy banks, nearby flocks of sheep and ancient trees standing proud. You may want to enjoy a lakeside barbecue or perhaps evening cocktails by the lake. 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 gardens are totally captivating. The Dorothy Garden boasts beautiful fountains and the Shrubbery offers a multitude of vibrant colour 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. Here you can enjoy picnics and bask in the sun. You will also want to explore the exquisite ‘living museum’, discovering the estate’s 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. 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. Close to Lostwithiel Stewardry is a fantastic alfresco dining area where you can cook up a storm using the Weber barbecue and Ooni pizza oven while keeping warm by the fire pit.

Children can enjoy a mud kitchen located in the estate grounds, adjacent to a charming Romany caravan, where they can let their imaginations run wild. Additionally, there is an outdoor kitchen tucked away in a picturesque corner of the estate, available for guests to use. The estate also boasts a popular craft space, providing a creative outlet for guests to indulge in various artistic endeavors. For those traveling with their furry friends, dog-friendly stays are gaining popularity, thanks to the miles of woodland tracks and designated off-leash areas where dogs can freely explore. The estate offers a multitude of recreational options, including paddle boards, mountain bikes, and more, ensuring there's something for everyone.

When it comes to food, Lostwithiel Estate goes the extra mile to cater to guests' culinary needs. They can arrange meals for guests from a local deli called Bella Mama, ensuring delicious and convenient dining options. In Lostwithiel, guests can find an excellent butcher and baker, providing access to fresh and high-quality meat and baked goods. The estate is also proud to collaborate with Trewithen, a renowned local dairy known for sourcing their milk from within a 25-mile radius of the estate. This enables guests to enjoy locally sourced milk, butter, yogurt, and clotted cream during their stay. As an added treat, guests are welcomed with a delightful cream tea upon their arrival, setting the tone for a truly enjoyable experience at Lostwithiel Estate.

The estate plays host to a number of annual events including a five mile race around the estate in aid of St John’s Ambulance Cornwall, an Endurance GB Ride, the south west’s premier Cornish ride with over 200 riders, Charity Open Gardens in aid of Cornwall Hospice Care and the Carriage Driving Day sponsored by the British Driving Society.

Lostwithiel Stewardry 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.
