Lostwithiel allows you to explore the north and south coasts of Cornwall with equal ease, as the neck of land that travels down to Land’s End gets narrower and narrower.

16 Brunel Quays was originally a railway building, named after its designer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel. It has been restored to offer a high standard of accommodation, but retains many of its original features, such as arched windows and exposed stonework. The cottage has 4 bedrooms and will sleep up to 7 people, making it an idyllic retreat for large families or groups of friends.

It also has a unique location, being bordered by the railway and its slow-passing trains on one side and the river quays on the other. The railway station is about 2 minutes' walk away, giving you access to trains that will take you to the major train stations and towns in Cornwall.


Excellent accommodation in an idyllic setting.
You would never guess how big this holiday accommodation is from just looking at the outside picture. Large entrance hall, well equipped kitchen, cloakroom w.c. and lounge leading to a patio garden enjoying a lovely view right on the river bank. The four bedrooms are over two floors with an en-suite shower room and a further family bathroom all tastefully decorated with very comfortable beds. The accommodation is ideally situated for those who love messing about in canoes or children enjoying just dipping their toes in the water. We loved watching the local children with their wetsuits having a great time. They enter the water just by the medieval bridge where there is a sandy area and picnic tables to sit and enjoy the fun. Lostwithiel is a pretty area with antique shops, a local co-op store which seems to have everything including a cash machine then there are numerous places to eat. We enjoyed a few meals at the local pub named The Globe. There is a wonderful National Trust house very near by named Lanhydrock which is a must to view when staying at this lovely property. We booked through Sykes cottages who were very professional. We hope to be back to enjoy this property and area.

Character filled holiday let in pretty location
The setting of 16 Brunel Quays was quite special, accommodation in a refurbished apartment in a Brunel designed railway carriageworks, the River Fowey flowing gently past the back door and a medieval stone-arched bridge (scheduled ancient monument) to stroll across to enjoy the ?antiques capital of Cornwall?, Lostwithiel. The accommodation itself was spotlessly clean and modern, the beds comfortable and the showers hot and strong. Cooking facilities were very good and a washing machine with drying cycle took care of laundry. The large dining/lounge area with its garden setting overlooking the Fowey was well utilised. Secure off road parking for two cars was another positive. On the slightly negative side, the Wifi internet was relatively slow and variable and the Lostwithiel Rail Station runs parallel to Brunel Quays. With windows closed the noise of the occasional train is of no consequence, but with the Velux windows slightly ajar in the bedrooms you won?t need an alarm clock when the 6:00 am train rolls in.

This was our third visit to Brunel Quays and it is still an excellent self-catering property. The kitchen was well equipped with good quality cooking utensils and the whole property was very clean and comfortable.

16 Brunel Quays is a spacious, unusual property. It is light and airy and is well furnished. We really enjoyed sitting on the patio by the river (we were particularly blessed with good weather)
Mrs Street

Brunel Quays is an excellent property and Lostwithiel is a great place to stay. Hope to go again.
