About our house

I live close to the centre of Loswithiel, near to the bus and main line train station. The new flat is on the middle floor and is part of a new development completed in 2018.

The flat is reached by a communal stair case. The front door leads into a good sized landing; the bedrooms are to the right, with a bathroom straight ahead (has a bath with shower over) and the kitchen, lounge and dining area to the left. The respite/short break bedroom is light and airy with a single bed, a television and a window that looks out to the front of the property.

It is a light and airy flat with a comfortable and modern atmosphere. The view from the living room is stunning. It is well maintained with new fittings thought out. There is a sunny communal garden with comfortable garden benches and tables to sit out and enjoy the fresh air.

Who else lives here?

I moved to the property in September 2018 and live on my own

Local area and community

Lostwithiel is situated in a beautiful wooded valley at the tidal reach of the River Fowey. Located in central Cornwall, it is within easy reach of both coasts and the moors and is well placed for exploring the county.

Today there are numerous antique shops selling furniture, collectables, ceramics and such things. Other shops, hidden in the old streets, specialise in arts and crafts, paintings, lace and patchwork. The museum is in the former Corn Exchange and has an interesting collection reflecting life in Lostwithiel over the past centuries. The local library is in a restored medieval house. It has an excellent selection of books on Cornwall and there are often exhibitions in the upstairs gallery.

The town also has many restaurants, cafés and pubs.has much to offer with shops, walks- both through park and the river. There are good rail and bus links to Plymouth or Truro and points in between and beyond.  The beautiful beach town of Fowey is only a short drive away.  Lostwithiel has much to offer and there is a strong sense of community.
