All Destinations UK Cornwall Lerryn

Where the River Fowey becomes the River Lerryn, a magical creekside village nestles within an area of outstanding natural beauty in rural Cornwall.

Tucked right at the top of the Lerryn river, this sleepy creekside hamlet has all the ingredients of a bygone backwater, with a dash of history for story-lovers: the creekside church of St Winnow was recorded in the Domesday Book, but past guests might remember it better from the 1970s Poldark series. This little hamlet is all about the river: at low tide, walkers can cross it by some wonky stepping stones; when the waters are up, a bridge is your best option, and this one has links to Queen Elizabeth I, as keen historians will have spotted.

For a small village, Lerryn has all a visitor could ask for: post office, shops, old local pub, and a couple of scrumpy farms in the locale. For a leg-stretch, peaceful green canopies spreading over riverbanks full of wildlife make the nearby routes both pleasant and delightful, especially the wander through Ethy Woods, stopping off in the picturesque churchyard for a breather. If a day out is on the cards, then Lanhydrock is a gorgeous stone Victorian house with exquisitely maintained country gardens, a short drive north.
