Lostwithiel PL22 0AS

We say

The stannary town of Lostwithiel was once the capital of Cornwall, described by the Black Prince as ‘the fairest of all small cities’. Today, it claims to be the antiques centre of Cornwall, where it’s possible to spend several hours browsing the numerous shops and galleries. There are many excellent restaurants and cafés too. The town’s history is visible throughout the town, particularly in the 14th century bridge that crosses the river in the centre of town. This is a lovely spot to sit and enjoy a picnic, or follow the locals and buy some sausages to grill on the barbecues by the river. Don’t miss seeing Restormel Castle, sitting on the hill just outside town.
