Local Area

Lerryn is a village situated on the river Lerryn approximately three miles southeast of Lostwithiel. The village straddles two parishes: north of the river it is in the parish of St Winnow and to the south, St Veep. The village has a post office and village shop, "Lerryn River Stores", which also provides fresh tea, coffee and cakes seven days a week, ideal for walkers taking advantage of the many beautiful walks in the area. The Ship Inn, dates from at least 1762 and there is an Elizabethan bridge crossing the river or alternatively why not try crossing using the famous stepping stones. The village hosts an annual 'Seagull' race, for any type of watercraft providing it is propelled by a 'Seagull' outboard motor. This event attracts competitors from all over the world looking for an extraordinary challenge.


Thank you so much for the wonderful week we have just had in The White Cottage. The setting is amazing and we have fallen in love with this area of Cornwall and would definitely hope to return in the future. Chris & Jane - 2nd June 2018
This is a beautiful cottage to stay in, the owners were on hand and very helpful. Above all, the location is fantastic.Mr Paul Hardy - 9th October 2017
A lovely property beautifully secluded and with plenty of space should you find yourself stuck with poor weather and very warm with the Aga! The cottage is immaculate throughout and we loved the chitter chatter of the house martins coming and going under the eaves. Great location just inland from Lerryn but very easy reach of some lovely beaches, Bodmin, Lostwithiel and the lovely Fowey estuary. A real gem!Mrs L Thoday - 4th September 2017
Beautiful cottage in a lovely rural location, Owners welcoming and helpful with local knowledge. Would definitely recommend and return.Mr N C Barber - 17th June 2017
Had a wonderful holiday here in Cornwall. The weather has been glorious. The countryside around this area is beautiful and the views from Restormel Castle were lovely. The cottage itself was the highlight for me, it is absolutely gorgeous, a really typical country cottage. The kitchen is just as I would like mine to be and the Aga was so easy to use. We want to live here! The house martins have now fledged but seeing their parents busily feeding them when we first came was lovely. Definitely want to come back again, so hope to see you soon.Mr and Mrs Kelsall - 27th May 2017
This property was excellent, we thoughly enjoyed our stayMr P Turtill - 10th April 2017
Thank you so much for a very comfortable stay in your beautiful cottage, one of the best we have stayed in. We wanted somewhere quiet and peaceful and we all had a wonderful holiday and a relaxing stay. You have thought of everything and the Aga is an added bonus, so easy.Helen, Kevin, Lucy & Kate - 22nd August 2015
Thank you very much for a lovely stay in your well appointed cottage. We loved the garden & the views - and the boys thought your chickens made fantastic pets! Great area - enjoyed our pasty/cream tea at Angie's cafe at St Winnow - worth a visit. House martins, comets & baby bunny in the garden made for a great week. ThanksPrior family - 15th August 2015
Can highly recommend the White Cottage, especially to anyone who likes a location in the middle of the countryside.Ms H James - 1st June 2015
We had an amazing week here in White Cottage. So lucky with the weather - been swimming in sea at least 4 times! Beautiful countryside & very peaceful. The cottage is just perfect - can't fault a thing! Beautifully maintained & clean. Loved it so much will definitely be returning. Lovely part of the world to explore & plenty more exploring to do. Many, many thanksMr & Mrs Parsons - 13th September 2014
