Fully-renovated in 2018, Penvose House is a spacious holiday home tucked-away in a secluded and slightly elevated position in the heart of Lostwithiel within an easy stroll of the local facilities and the River Fowey. The feeling of space and style is evident as you enter the hallway with its stunning granite floor and with many original features such as feature fireplaces, slate flooring and wooden beams, it feels cosy and inviting. With generous room sizes, comfy beds, great facilities and a choice of two outdoor seating areas, it is the perfect base for your holiday in Cornwall.

The ancient, tin-mining town of Lostwithiel is a popular central location which is steeped in history and renowned for its vibrant community and is known as the antiques capital of Cornwall. It is home to many festivals and events throughout the year and visitors are always welcome. Coulson Park and Shirehall Moor are a short walk from the property and feature a nature reserve offering picnic areas and beautiful walks along the banks of the river. Be sure to stop by the bridge at Lostwithiel at low tide as the children and dogs will love playing in the water. The town even has its own train station on the Penzance to London mainline so you could leave your car at home and explore Cornwall by rail.

Penvose House is a wonderful place to stay. It has everything you could possibly need, is extremely clean and comfortable. Very well located in the lovely friendly village of Lostwithiel. We had a fantastic week there.

Mrs H,


The stretch of beautiful, unspoilt countryside between the bustling market town of Lostwithiel and the harbour town of Fowey is the perfect destination for a relaxing holiday.  It is bordered by the stunning river Fowey which provides opportunities for kayaking, sailing and messing around on the water, as well as miles of walking trails and beautiful views.  Only a 20 minute drive takes you to the port of Charlestown with tall ships lining the harbour.  You may recognise the little village from the many productions it has featured in including Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland and, more recently, the BBC's Poldark series.  The world renowned Eden Project is just a 10 minute drive and the area is well served by some lovely sandy beaches.  The little cove at Fowey is popular with locals and visitors alike and the beach at Polkerris is a fantastic spot for families with a sheltered bay and ample opportunities for watersports with equipment hire and tuition available.
