The Old Carriage Works is part of a railway building originally constructed in the 1860's and designed by Brunel himself, the exposed stonewalling, high arched windows and industrial timber beams add to the timeless grace of the renovation. However inside all modern conveniences are catered for with a superbly well equipped kitchen and tasteful decor and furnishings through out.

On one side of the Old Carriage Works the Fowey river trickles through the shallows and ducks paddle calmly through the dappled water, on the other side is the railway line and Lostwithiel Station. The station provides an opportunity to visit some of Cornwall's key towns (including Penzance, St Ives, Falmouth and many others) without the need to take your car. You can also travel direct to Lostwithiel from London. As a stannary town Lostwithiel is one of Cornwall's hidden gems with a wonderful atmosphere but also close to the Eden Project and the stunning south coast towns of Fowey, Looe and Polperro.

For those wishing to visit the delights of places such as The Eden Project, Charlestown and Fowey, this is the area for you, located on the Eastern side of St Austell. With large attractions such as the Eden Project on the outskirts of St Austell, The Lost Gardens of Heligan towards Mevagissey, and Lanhydrock National Trust House & Gardens a short drive inland it provides an ideal base for your travels. The coastal town of Fowey is a simple drive to the coast past the China Clay port of Par, offering fabulous restaurants, galleries and gift shops. Daphne du Maurier spent her later years in properties in and around Fowey.

Just over the hill from Eden Valley lies the ancient stannary town of Lostwithiel, Cornwall's hidden treasure, nestling in the Fowey River valley and overlooked by the 12th century Restormel Castle. This ancient town with its quaint old buildings is full of the hustle and bustle of everyday life, centering around St Bartholomew church which dates back to before 1170. The town is surrounded by beautiful countryside with the Fowey Rover meandering through the centre of the town. St Austell was once the major producer of the world's China Clay; now with cheaper foreign imports, the industry is in decline but The Wheal Martyn China Clay Museum set in two former working pits depicts the countryside in years gone by. Wet weather activities could include the visitor centre at St Austell Brewery, sampling beers and ales made on the premises. The Eden Project hosts many bands throughout the season as well as featuring an Ice Rink out of season.

Bodmin was the former county town of Cornwall for many years and the only Cornish town to be recorded in the Domesday Book, which was lodged in the town's prison during the First World War. The county prison is now a museum and open to the public. It was the first prison in the country to have separate cells. The oldest part of the town is made up of mainly granite buildings clustered around the Bodmin Beacon. The Beacon is a 144 feet tall obelisk in memory of Sir Walter Raleigh Gilbert. The area around the Beacon which has woodland and traditional hay meadow was declared a Local Nature Reserve in 1994. At Tregullon you are just 10 miles away from The Eden Project and 2 miles away from the National Trust's amazing Lanhydrock House.

Nearby Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30, is home to one of Cornwall's Areas of Oustanding Natural Beauty, reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwall's highest point. The heather covered granite moorland provides East Cornwall with the most stunning country views and rugged walks. Near Blisland you will find two of Cornwall's stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge and just round the corner, one end of the famous Camel Trail. The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families.

Great Holiday

We enjoyed our stay at the Old Carriage Works. It was comfortable and very well equipped for our needs. A lot of thought has gone in to equipping the kitchen and it was a lovely touch to have a picnic bag for guests to use. We found Lostwithiel a great base and places we visited included Lanhydrock (great for a rainy day), beautiful Crantock beach, Looe and Polperro. The coastal walks were amazing. We made good use of the Lostwithiel Co-op and enjoyed a meal out at Asquiths, which was delicious. In all a great holiday. Thank you.

Guest from Wickford stayed for 7 nights.

Beautiful apartment in a perfect location

The apartment was stylishly decorated and clean. It was comfortable and well equipped for our family of 4. The location is excellent. Its in a quiet location a few minutes walk from the centre of Lostwithiel. Easy access to local shops and restaurants. Restormel castle is only a 30 minute walk away. We found it to be a great base to explore Bodmin Moor, the Eden project and Fowey and the surrounding coast - all less than 30 minutes drive away. Highly recommended.

Guest from Nuneaton stayed for 7 nights.

Wow!

Wow! First impressions are so important and The Carriageworks does not fail to impress. After a little bit of a climb up some industrial style stairs you get to the apartment where you grab the key from a coded box, easy. Then you enter this beautiful apartment with an impressive kitchen and living room that overlooked the railway. Upstairs was also as impressive, both bedrooms beautifully furnished with views of the river or countryside from the Velux windows, amazing. We had a wonderful stay and certainly appreciated the complimentary tea, coffee and milk for the first night. The Carriageworks are in an ideal spot to explore Cornwall and is in the lovely village of Lostwithial with everything you need - a Coop, cafe, fish n chip shop, Chinese take-away and restaurants and pubs. I even saw a steam train go by one evening, happy days. We would recommend staying here to anyone, very relaxing.
