Located in an idyllic, rural setting, this lovely cottage enjoys views over unspoilt countryside near to the riverside village of Lerryn.  The beautiful garden has total privacy and is complete with seating and a barbecue for those lazy summer evenings relaxing while watching the sun go down.  The White Cottage is also perfect for a winter get-away as it features both an AGA in the kitchen, providing that warm glow to the house, and also a woodburner in the lounge for cosy evenings in.  Fresh flowers are put in each room for your stay from the beautiful, wild garden.  The surrounding countryside is picture-perfect - rolling green fields and meadows and little boats dotting the shoreline of the nearby tidal river at Lerryn.  Just a 2 minute drive away, Lerryn provides a popular inn and a village stores as well as its picturesque river scenery.  A haven for nature-lovers and bird watchers, The White Cottage is set in a truly peaceful location yet only 2 miles from the market town of Lostwithiel and only 5 miles from Fowey (via the Bodinnick ferry).
