Welcome to Lostwithiel

This ancient stannary town dates back to the 12th century, yet it's one of the most vibrant and lively communities in Cornwall. Whether you’re here for the day or down on holiday, Lostwithiel is the ideal base to explore breathtaking countryside and discover the unspoilt beaches of south east Cornwall. There's plenty of accommodation from hotels and pubs to cosy b&bs and self catering cottages.
