Restormel Castle & Lostwithiel, Cornwall

Restormel Castle & Lostwithiel

Restormel Castle

This is a day trip that involves catching the train (with one change at St Erth) and takes about 1½ - 2 hours each way, with a 30 minute walk up to the Castle.

This great 13th-century circular shell-keep of Restormel, still encloses the principal rooms of the castle in remarkably good condition. It stands on an earlier Norman mound surrounded by a deep dry ditch, atop a high spur beside the River Fowey. Twice visited by the Black Prince, it finally saw action during the Civil War in 1644. It commands fantastic views and is now a favourite picnic spot. Don't forget we can organise the picnics.
