Enjoy the magic of this area of Cornwall with a visit to Lerryn - a beautiful riverside village that really does bring together all that's wonderful about Cornwall's hidden heart, peace and tranquility are the order of the day, every day.
Lerryn is a charming riverside village situated on a delightful tree lined tributary of the River Fowey. The village is about 3 miles from the ancient stannary town of Lostwithiel, 9 miles from the famous Eden Project and about 4 miles (via the Bodinnick car ferry) from Fowey. It is considered one of the prettiest villages in this area and has much to offer the holiday visitor.
Surrounded by National Trust woodland with lovely walks along both sides of the river, the village lies in the midst of the very best countryside Cornwall has to offer and provides a wonderful location for those who are simply looking for complete peace and quiet. Springtime in Lerryn is a particularly lovely time for watching the ducklings, signets and many varieties of birdlife including, if you are lucky, the Kingfisher.
The village show, amateur dramatic productions and races on the river are just some of the events that take place during the year and to which visitors are very welcome.
There is a large village green adjoining the river and a free car park. When the tide is out, stepping stones are revealed allowing you to cross to the other side, a great attraction for children and the young at heart! A delightful sixteenth century bridge provides a permanent crossing point a couple of hundred yards up the river. Lerryn has an excellent general stores/sub post office where traditional cream teas can be purchased and the local free house pub, The Ship Inn, provides good food and welcoming service.
