Lostwithiel Guide and History
Lostwithiel is a beautiful little town with a vibrant community often overlooked by passers-by as it is hidden in the valley. Steeped in history, with the ruins of the 12th Century Restormel castle on the hill, the Duchy Palace, and the town’s association with the Black Prince, all adding to the rich heritage.

Entertainment and Eating Out Guide
Lostwithiel is an ideal base for visiting both North and South Cornwall. In between St. Austell and Bodmin you are within easy access of Bodmin Moor and The Eden Project and it is 5 miles from the harbour town of Fowey. The town is literally 5 minutes drive from the National Trust property Lanhydrock and there is the country house Boconnoc which opens its gates in the summer to host outdoor plays and for visitors to explore the gardens.
The shops in the town include fairtrade products, pretty lifestyle and gift shops, a bookshop as well as an impressive selection of antiques.
Lostwithiel Beach and Surf Guide
Both the North and South coasts are within easy reach and Lostwithiel is minutes in the car from a great range of beaches.
Travel links are good with a station right in the centre of the town but more frequent trains can be picked up 5 minutes away at the Bodmin Parkway or Par stations.
A thriving community with homegrown businesses, Lostwithiel has a wide range of firms calling it home. One business that began life in the town has just relocated, now providing house removals in Wiltshire, still delivering through the UK and France.
