The old Carpenters workshop sits in the two acre ”garden” of the Old Coach House, guests are very welcome to walk down to the river to sit in the woods, watch the ducks and chickens or just simply watch the wildlife that frequent the garden.

Our buildings date back to about 1850, and were originally used to service the manor house. Castle is situated in a stunning wooded valley a mile south of the medieval town of Lostwithiel and up river from Fowey, the elegant estuary town on the South East Coast of Cornwall, an Area of Outstanding Beauty.

Carpenters Cottage is the perfect choice for an autumn, winter and or early spring short breaks as well as the traditional summer holiday. The Saints Way is literally on our doorstep and makes this an ideal walking base, with or without your dog, while the lovely beaches of both the North and South Cornwall  are half an hour drive away.  Bodmin Moor is also easily assessible, making this a wonderful location from which to explore the many attractions of Cornwall including the Eden Project, Heligan Gardens, Lanhydrock House and the many historic villages dotted around our coasts.
