Lostwithiel is an ancient stannary town in Cornwall, in a wooded valley at the head of the River Fowey estuary. It was once the county capital and its narrow alleyways are packed with remnants of its fascinating past. Exploring the town centre from your holiday cottage in Lostwithiel, you will notice striking landmarks such as St Bartholomew’s Church, featuring a 13th century tower and an octagonal screen. There is a fine 14th century bridge over the river with five pointed arches and the remains of Lostwithiel Stannary Palace with its Coinage Hall. The town centre is home to a variety of independent shops, delis, restaurants, cafes and pubs where you can enjoy a delicious meal prepared with fresh ingredients from Cornwall’s coast and countryside. Lostwithiel is famous for its antique shops and there’s no better place in the county to rummage for unique treasures to take home.
