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.

Local Area

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.


Very lovely property in a fantastic location. A real home from home. We had an amazing stay and would absolutely comeback again. Thank youMrs Naomi Godwin - 31st October 2018
A lovely week staying in a beautiful cottage. All the facilities that we required were supplied as standard. Very well presented to a high standard. Really good base from which to explore the beautiful Cornish coast. Thank you!Paul & Amanda - 15th October 2018
The house is just beautifully decorated. Took Molly to Par Beach which is perfect for dogs. Everybody I have met has been so friendly and I will definitely be back. Lostwithiel is a great town too.Murray & Carolyn - 5th October 2018
Loved the cottage. Everything we needed was here. Thanks for letting us share. Would love to come back and explore more.Steve & Babs - 30th September 2018
A delightful stay in this stunning well-equipped cottage. So cozy. Thanks you and we'll be back. Tracey & Marcus - 23rd September 2018
Second visit to Lostwithiel but first staying here. It's been very comfy with just about everything you could need. The decking has been a lovely sun-trap at breakfast time. Overall it's been a haven of peace for a much-needed, relaxed holiday.Jacqui & Paul - 17th September 2018
We have had a lovely time in Lostwithiel. A lovely friendly place and a beautifully-presented home to come back to of an evening. Fantastic location to access so many parts of Cornwall, the boys and dog equally happy swimming in the river just a stone's throw away. Everywhere and everyone has been dog-friendly which made our dog's holiday too! The Game Family - 20th August 2018
Penvose House has recently been refurbished to a high standard. The owners have thought of everything! Making it a very nice house to stay in while visiting Cornwall. It is easy walking distance to the river, restaurants, shops and pubs and yet it sits back in a quiet location. I have no hesitation in recommending this property.J Mico - 22nd July 2018
