Beautifully renovated, this spacious studio apartment with private hot tub is a fantastic romantic bolthole to explore all South Cornwall has to offer.

Attached to the owner’s residence, the apartment is within 500 metres of Lostwithiel town centre and the River Fowey, where you can enjoy picturesque riverside walks or visit the many artisan shops, restaurants and local pubs. Walk to Restormel Castle (1.5 miles) or take one of the many routes through the Duchy Estate. The nearby towns of Lerryn (3.5 miles), Polperro (16 miles) and Looe (16.5 miles) are worth a visit, and the maritime town of Fowey is just 7 miles away. Beach lovers will be spoilt for choice, with many pretty coves including Polkerris (6.5 miles) and Readymoney (8 miles). Other attractions accessible from here include The Eden Project (5.6 miles), the tall ships at Charlestown (7.5 miles), the Lost Gardens of Heligan (14.5 miles) near Mevagissey and the Camel Trail (7 miles).

Step into the light and welcoming entrance where you’ll find plenty of space to hang up your outerwear and room to store paddleboards and surfboards if you need it. Head through into the open-plan lounge/bedroom. The lounge area has a comfortable sofa to curl up on and ambient lighting so you can relax and watch your favourite programmes on the Smart TV, or have a lazy morning in the king-size bed and watch from there. The sleek kitchen features a breakfast bar – the perfect place to sip your morning coffee and plan your day ahead. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you’ll need to cook up a meal including electric hob and oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave; there’s also a washing machine. Completing the inside of the apartment is a shower room with a rainfall shower and WC.

We stayed here over New Years and couldnt have wished for anything better. Richard was so friendly and helpful, and was always around if you had any queries. Shepherds Rest was so comfortable, spacious and clean, a superb base camp for exploring Cornwall or just relaxing in beautiful Lostwithiel!

The ancient fishing village of Polruan lies just across the river from the delightful civil parish of Fowey, a bustling picturesque town packed with quirky coastal shops, art galleries and restaurants. Surrounded by some of the region’s most enchanting countryside, this pair of Cornish cousins have a truly magical feel about them. Polruan, with its steep hill and charming cottages looking down over the pretty harbour, and Fowey with its timeless maritime charm, are linked together by the Fowey Estuary, a haven of colourful sailing and fishing boats dotted about on the water.

A short drive away are the nearby harbours of East and West Looe with their quayside restaurants, sandy beaches and wildlife boat trips. The village of Polperro, with its fascinating smuggling history and horse pulled tram is a must-see and Charlestown, with its huge square sail ships is famously known as the key filming location for the hit TV series, Poldark. Children will love winding their way through the scenic coastal landscape with the Bodmin and Wenford Railway and for those brave enough, there is ample opportunity to hunt down the mysterious beast of Bodmin Moor.

The beautiful capital town of Truro with its magnificent cathedral and wide boulevards is just over an hour away by car and the newly redeveloped St Austell, home to the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan can be reached within forty-five minutes. Surrounded by gorgeous countryside and nature reserves, lakes and rivers, the area boasts some of the best sailing and watersports in the UK. If you are looking for somewhere remote and unspoilt, but with lots to keep you busy, Polruan is the perfect choice.
