    • “Lovely quirky cottage in a beautiful village. Very warm and cosy, well stocked with everything we needed. And we were blessed with great weather!”

    Mrs Johnston, Market Harborough, September 2018

    • “The cottage was 5*, beautiful cottage in a lovely village on the river. Everything we needed was in the cottage. Will definitely be returning.”

    Mrs Port, Herne Bay, August 2018

    • “The Cottage was fine, clean and comfortable. The only issues were, the main oven would not turn on although the top oven did work. Plus I banged my head on the low doorway into the lounge twice, and I'm only 5' 10" tall..otherwise it was a very pleasant stay.”

    Mr O'Donovan, CAMBERLEY, August 2018

    • “Thanks, we are a happy family because we had lovely holiday in the comfortable well appointed cottage. Booking was helpful and very straightforward.”

    Mr Harvey, Reading, July 2018

    • “We loved our stay at Mote Cottage. The accommodation exceeded our expectations and the attention to detail was very much appreciated - such as the welcome pint of milk in the fridge & the wine/cookies. Everything in the cottage is of a very high spec and along with the sunshine, made it very difficult to leave after our weeks holiday. The communication from helpful holidays whether by email or phone has been clear, friendly and helpful. Many thanks”

    Ms Randon, CHESTERFIELD, July 2018

    • “Fabulous, comfortable quirky cottage in a Cornish village, simply beautiful, relaxing and we will definitely be going back”

    Mrs Holloway, HALESOWEN, June 2018

    • “Wow!!! A lovely cottage in a lovely tranquil scenic location. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need. The village has a pub and a shop which sells everything you might need. Nice walks from the cottage. Negotiating the narrow lanes is a challenge, but that all adds to the wonderful experience of lerryn village. Would highly recommend for peace and quiet and friendly village life.”

    Mrs Locke, Farnborough, June 2018

    • “Mote Cottage in Lerryn is a wonderful place to stay. The house is amazing, the village even more! We would live to come back!”

    Mrs Bakkenes, April 2018

Regional Information

LERRYN Lostwithiel 3 miles; Bodmin 10 miles. For those seeking peace, tranquillity and the unspoilt splendour of Cornwall’s ‘softer’ southern coast there can be few finer spots than Lerryn. Sitting at the very point where the River Lerryn joins the highest tidal reach of a creek leading up from the Fowey estuary, the village has a timeless, natural beauty no matter the season. Footpaths meander through the woods and along the river bank while out on the water the small boats owned by local residents provide another means of travelling down stream to Fowey (3.5miles) for shopping or just something to do in wonderful surroundings. The village boasts an award winning pub/restaurant and has a small shop and post office. Nearby Lostwithiel is renowned also for its good restaurants and antique shops. The stunning Eden Project (8 miles), the Shipwreck Harbour at Charlestown, the lovely fishing village and harbour of Mevagissey, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the stately home and gardens at Lanhydrock (NT) can all be reached in under half an hour while Padstow and the rolling surf of the north coast are just over 20 miles away.
