Lady Emma’s Cottage (2182)

1.8 miles NE of Kingsand | Sleeps 8 + cot* | Price Band U (£735 - £2118)

Not for those who are afraid of the dark or the haunting sound of owls, Lady Emma’s Cottage will delight walkers and nature lovers. Standing alone on the edge of Mount Edgcumbe Estate on the Rame peninsula, surrounded by woods and sea and with a hot tub in the garden, this beautiful, unique Arts and Crafts cottage is accessed by woodland tracks (sometimes used by walkers), and through a locked gate. A deer track leads to a tidal shingle beach, and the Estate grounds offer wonderful walks. The views from the cottage are stunning, looking across Plymouth Sound to Drake’s Island and the maritime city beyond which, despite the cottage's seclusion, is an easy drive or short ferry trip away.

Inside, this lovely house is beautifully furnished and decorated, the sitting-room with a double-sided wood-burner which also heats the dining-room. Upstairs are four bedrooms sharing two bathrooms. Outside, the hot tub is a luxuriously indulgent special treat, perfect for a relaxing soak after a day out walking.
