Restormel Cottage
Lostwithiel, Cornwall

Restormel Cottage sits within the heart of the Duchy of Cornwall's historic estate approximately 1 mile from the attractive medieval town of Lostwithiel. The cottage is located in unspoilt countryside at the head of the beautiful Fowey valley adjacent to the Duchy of Cornwall Garden Nursery overlooking Restormel Castle.

A perfect retreat surrounded by extensive woodland walks, close to Cornwall’s beautiful South coast and within easy travel distance of the rugged North coast.

Restormel Cottage is approximately 400 years old and was constructed reputedly utilising stonework salvaged from Restormel Castle & Priory.

The garden has been designed by our award winning Duchy Nursery team who have created a beautiful courtyard garden to the rear of the property. Garden furniture, a barbecue and subtle outdoor lighting are provided. The garden to the side and rear of the property is fenced to provide a secure play area for young visitors.

The interior of the cottage has been carefully refurbished to retain the traditional character of the property whilst providing a comfortable, well equipped and homely base for an enjoyable holiday.


The slate flagged and partially timber panelled hallway leads to a beautifully furnished sitting room with subtle lighting, pine floor, open fire (logs are supplied free of charge from the adjoining Duchy woodlands) & high quality soft furnishings. Flat screen TV with video, DVD player and hi-fi with i pod docking station. An ample supply of DVDs, board games and books are supplied.

Across the hallway is the dining room which has an intimate feel perfect for unwinding after hectic days exploring Cornwall. A French door leads to the private courtyard garden, ideal for barbecues.

The traditional slate flagged kitchen has been comprehensively equipped with dishwasher, fridge freezer, ceramic hob, double oven and all conceivable cookware, crockery, glassware, cook books etc. A washing machine and dryer are located in a separate out house.
