The West Wing of an impressive manor house in a secluded wooded valley...

Castle is situated in south-east Cornwall a mile south of medieval Lostwithiel, the former county capital town. The site is reputedly that of King Mark's castle (the defensive stronghold, Castledore, is 2 miles away) and of his son Tristan's ill-fated love affair with Isolde. The surrounding area has been described as the most beautiful and unspoilt part of the county, with many quiet footpaths (the ancient Saints Way passes by the front gate) and shady byroads.

There are many attractive and-even in high season-secluded beaches within a short drive including Pridmouth, near Menabilly (Daphne Du Maurier's Manderley"). Polkerris, Lantic Bay and the historic Port of Fowey are just 5 miles away. Bodmin Moor and the north coast are within half an hour's drive. The National Trust property Lanhydrock House is very close, as are many famous gardens, while St Michael's Mount, Lands End and the New Tate in St Ives make interesting day trips.

The present house at Castle (a former medieval manor) was built about 1810, its mainly classical lines incorporating gothic features. The scale and materials are typical of a Cornish country house with massive granite quoins, pierced balconies and arched multipane windows in dressed granite.

The gardens are extensive and are particularly impressive. They contain a variety of large trees (Redwoods, Noble Fir, Beeches, Palms) and shrubs (30 ft Rhododendrons, 20 ft Camellias and Azaleas. Each apartment has an area of garden with garden furniture and barbecue in addition to access to the surrounding grounds.

The two apartments at Castle can be booked jointly as a whole unit sleeping up to 8 people plus 2 babies, using an interconnecting door at 1st floor level, or as 2 individual self-contained apartments, with private entrances from the gardens. The accommodation is furnished so as to create a comfortable ambience; much attention has been paid to interior decor and the apartments have thermostatically controlled underfloor heating, open fires, fitted kitchens and state-of-the-art bathrooms.

What our guests say

Great location to relax and explore Cornwall

The Castle is a tranquil paradise with everything needed for a relaxing holiday and beyond. It is a perfect starting point for Cornwall tours with e.g. Eden Project, Lanhydrock Manor and the beautiful Bodmin Moor just around the corner. (Don't miss lovely Fowey!) The owner cares for a very warm welcome. Strongly recommended!

Lovely place. Great location and just a short drive to nearby Fowey also. Very spacious apartment with superb gardens. Lostwithiel itself is also lovely. We stayed for a week and had a lovely and relaxing break.

Peace and tranquility!

Castle is beautifully hidden away. We arrived at this beautiful building after a long drive from London. We felt very relaxed and enjoyed the peace and tranquility. We filled our days with wonderful excursions from this ideal location.

Beautiful surroundings

We had a very comfortable stay in beautiful surroundings. Plenty of room to entertain family. Many thanks for the Xmas dinner table, fairy lights and log fire.

Lovely accommodation

Castle is a fabulous place to stay and we had a great weekend there. A nice welcome pack was waiting on our arrival which was a lovely surprise. The super king-size beds were very comfortable and the bedding very clean. The bathrooms could have been a bit cleaner but nothing that was a problem. The kitchen had everything you needed and there was loads of crockery and cutlery. The only downsize was the water pressure and temperature but Castle was built in 1810 so you can't complain. A place I have already recommended to friends and I would love to stay there again. Really relaxing and lovely gardens... Definitely book it if you are looking for a break away from the hustle and bustlle.
