Property code: SKYLA

Situated in an elevated position above the historic town of Lostwithiel, this picturesque cottage is the perfect hideaway for a romantic getaway.

A romantic cottage exuding charm, Skylarks enjoys a desirable location, perched above charming Lostwithiel with views over the Fowey Valley. It's just a short, downhill walk into town where you'll find welcoming local pubs and scenic walks through the valley and woodland.

Returning from a day exploring, you'll find the cottage comfortable and welcoming. Summer evenings can be spent dining alfresco on the decking, while on cooler nights, spark up the gas fire, pop your favourite film on TV and sink into the sofa with a glass of wine. Homely touches and a cosy atmosphere make Skylarks perfect for a romantic getaway.

If you enjoy walking, there are plenty of opportunities to get out and about. Pick up the Saints Way on the edge of Lostwithiel, ramble across the hills and through woodland to the little village of Lerryn or head for the National Trust's Lanhydrock House. Just 8 miles away is the picturesque town of Fowey, where you can take a scenic ferry ride to Polruan or hop on a boat tour to explore the river or coast. 5 miles from Skylarks are the iconic domes of the Eden Project, a must-visit attraction during your stay.

Outside space and view disappointing. Overlooked by the main house. Approach road very narrow. Otherwise a very pleasant stay.

Th cottage was ideal for a couple and was situated in a quiet location which we both really liked, and was close to the town centre. However it was located at the very top of a steep narrow road with 3 turns which may be off putting to some people. We didn't mind once we got used to it.

Well equipped cosy cottage in a quite location. Good base to explore the Cornwall coast and countryside. A few local shops and take aways.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
