The West Wing of an impressive manor house in a secluded wooded valley...

Castle is situated in south-east Cornwall a mile south of medieval Lostwithiel, the former county capital town. The site is reputedly that of King Mark's castle (the defensive stronghold, Castledore, is 2 miles away) and of his son Tristan's ill-fated love affair with Isolde. The surrounding area has been described as the most beautiful and unspoilt part of the county, with many quiet footpaths (the ancient Saints Way passes by the front gate) and shady byroads.

The present house at Castle (a former medieval manor) was built about 1810, its mainly classical lines incorporating gothic features. The scale and materials are typical of a Cornish country house with massive granite quoins, pierced balconies and arched multipane windows in dressed granite.

The gardens are extensive and are particularly impressive. They contain a variety of large trees (Redwoods, Noble Fir, Beeches, Palms) and shrubs (30 ft Rhododendrons, 20 ft Camellias and Azaleas. Each apartment has an area of garden with garden furniture and barbecue in addition to access to the surrounding grounds.

The West Wing at Castle lends itself to being used as a whole unit sleeping up to 8 people plus 2 babies, using an interconnecting door at 1st floor level, or as 2 individual self-contained apartments, with private entrances from the gardens. The accommodation is furnished so as to create a comfortable ambience; attention has been paid to interior decor and the apartments have thermostatically controlled underfloor heating, open fires, fitted kitchens and state-of-the-art bathrooms.

Lostwithiel

There are many attractive and - even in high season - secluded beaches within a short drive including Pridmouth, near Menabilly (Daphne Du Maurier's "Manderley").

Polkerris, Lantic Bay and the historic Port of Fowey just 5 miles away. Bodmin Moor and the north coast are within half an hour's drive. The National Trust property Lanhydrock House is very close, as are many famous gardens, while St Michael's Mount, Lands End and the new Tate in St Ives make interesting day trips.
