2nd time around we were even more enchanted with Cremyll lodge. We received complementary tickets for the open air concert on the Saturday night and were offered a free tour of the house as compensation for a problem with the macerator and pump. We weren't able to avail ourselves of this kind offer but were extremely impressed with the immediate response to our call for help at 11pm on Tuesday night.
If and when the bed needs replacing perhaps it might be possible to have two singles that could be pushed together to form a double meaning that two friends as well as couples could visit. We love the walking, the close access to both ferries and buses and the pub. Need we say more! Best wishes Susan and Oliver Northcott.

This is a quaint cottage in a wonderful location. There is always something to see on the river from the lounge window. Private courtyard. Peaceful yet ferry, shop and cafe are 'right there' when you need them!
Mrs Neal June 2019
It's a lovely compact property but the owners need to be more proactive in checking everything works before tenants check-in. Good parking and attractive, private garden patio area.

Lovely cottage and perfect location
Miss Thomas May 2019
The cottage was very comfortable and clean, and the layout was excellent, the bootroom being very useful to remove muddy boots and dry wet paws. The courtyard area was brilliant for the dog, the first time I've been in a cottage where enclosed means enclosed! The location was excellent for walking, and I will definitely be returning to Mount Edgcumbe.

A lovely cottage in a fabulous location. Didn't need to use the car at all. Wallace my dog loved the Country Park right next door. Would certainly go again.

The lodge is in an absolutely perfect location. Mount Edgcumbe is on the doorstep with numerous walks & then there is a small beach to wash off muddy paws! The ferry is a few minutes walk to take you over to Plymouth & then there is the Edgcumbe Arms for a meal & drink at the end of the day. Perfect.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location
Mrs Foreman September 2018
Lovely cottage, perfect garden, great for us and dogs. Easy to book and kept up to date with letters from Classic Cottages
Mr Lamb July 2018
A wonderful discovery. A quaint secluded cottage for two, with loads of amenities and fantastic views over the water towards Royal William Yard and Drake's Island.
Mr Thompson June 2018
Great little cottage in a fantastic location. Lovely private garden - our dog was constantly tormented by squirrels coming over the roof from the shop garden and using the fence as a shortcut to the trees behind the house. The pub is great and the Cremyll and Barbican ferries provide quick and interesting routes to Plymouth. Also, the number 70 bus provides a scenic one and a half hour trip to Plymouth via Kingsand, Cawsand, Whitsands Bay and Torpoint. No need to use the car!
Mr Trammer May 2018
The unique location and exceptional views of Plymouth and the boats makes this a perfect cottage for peaceful relaxing holiday.
Mrs Turner May 2018
Wasn’t really for us the drive to the cottage was steep we couldnt turn round had to leave car in the car park down the road wasnt happy about leaving it there.
Reply from Classic Cottages
We're so sorry to hear that you struggled with the driveway. The cottage is set back from the road at a slightly lower level, but we do try our best to show this in the photos (the exterior image gives a particularly clear view). Our Arrival Details recommend reversing in so that it is easier to drive out, but as an alternative the nearest car park is approximately 100 yards away, and we would have been very happy to reimburse you the cost. However, the owners have taken your points on board and will look at options for adding a turning area. We're sorry the property wasn't quite what you were looking for but we hope you enjoyed exploring the area nevertheless. Tanya, Customer Support

Lovely cosy clean and comfortable cottage with excellent access to Mount Edgcumbe, Rame and Plymouth. ideal for walkers.
Mr Rudling April 2018
Brilliant cottage very comfortable. Excellent location. Wonderful walks around Mount Edgcumbe. Local pub just across the road serves delicious food. Beautiful beaches in the area, Whitsand Bay definitely worth a visit, quite a steep walk down and back but worth it.
Mr Telford October 2017
Had a fantastic stay. Will be booking again. Would highly recommend.
Mr Moore October 2017
A wonderful little cottage to provide a country escape. Great walks, great view and ideal for the Cremyll ferry and the great food of the Edgcumbe Arms
Mr Booth October 2017
Can't think of a better place to stay for a relaxing long weekend away. Love the cottage with it's modern equipment and it's cosy feel. It's has a great view across Plymouth Sound, a local pub, fantastic walks along the Cornish coast and a ferry service over to Plymouth. Would come back again.
Mrs Foreman September 2017
100% Perfectly amazing !
Mr Bradwell September 2017
Wonderful cottage cosy and clean, with lovely outlook, excellent walks from the cottage i hardly used the car for anything, easy access to Plymouth and all of rame area, Ferry's and pub on the doorstep, and very quite.
Mr Burch June 2017
An excellent cottage in a wonderful location.
Mr Barham April 2017
Great location for access to Plymouth (via Cremyll ferry). Warm, cosy, and thoughtfully decorated. A pity that with a bathroom large enough to accomodate it, there was no bath. After a long day walking the coastal path, a relaxing bath would have been very welcome. The shower cubicle could also have been bigger and, certainly, taller - anyone over 6ft tall will have to be crouching a bit to get their head under the shower. Mount Edgecumbe estate was delightful and a very interesting visit. With no WiFi, you are dependent on your mobile. However, for some, no WiFi is exactly what would be appealing for a holiday destination!

Mrs Kemery March 2017
Cottage was very cosy, clean and warm, ideal for walks, the garden is enclosed, especially for a jack russell as they tend to get under gates, the view out of one window is the sea , watched boats and the bedroom window looks over the park, stables cafe and edgecumbe arms has lovely food and friendly staff
Mrs Bygrave October 2016
Watching the sun rise through the lounge window quickly became the only way to start the day. Magical
Mrs Kershaw September 2016
The first thing that strikes you is the wonderful location, inside the cottage feels comfortable and modern but has retained its character features, we had a great few days and wouldn't hesitate to return
Mr Berry August 2016
Lovely cosy cottage in a great spot!
Mrs Jones August 2016
cremyll cottage is a beautiful little cottage with fantastic views all around. We had an excellent stay there with our daughters little dog. (he loved have freedom of the outside garden area too) . The cottage was spotlessly clean. The pub just around the corner was very friendly and they served excellent food. We would defiantly recommend the cottage and we would certainly stay there again.
Mr Campbell June 2016
Lovely cottage in a stunning location on the Mount Edgcumbe Estate. Nice walks around the estate, all staff very friendly and welcoming. Clean, friendly pub just minutes away serving good food. Ideal spot for getting away or easy 8 min ferry ride across into Plymouth.
Mr Gregor June 2016

Mr Golbery April 2016
A nice and quiet cottage in a wonderful surrounding
Mr Painter April 2016
Fantastic setting and location. Brilliant free park and gardens, friendly cafe next door. Excellent enclosed garden for dog, who loved the house and area! The local pub does excellent food and has a friendly atmosphere, welcomes dogs and gives them an individual water bowl, with dog biscuits on the bar.
Cremyll ferry is a briliant experience. It looks like something out of Thomas the Tank Engine and offers a frequent service, connecting with the local bus.
Plenty of beautiful places to visit locally, beaches, NT, towns and countryside.
The lady in the cafe (niece of the original resident of the lodge) will order papers and items on request. Also does excellent pasties.
Mrs Pascoe April 2016
Cremyll Lodge was in a brilliant location for our weekend break; it was really warm and comfortable, the electric heaters are very efficient and there was loads of hot water for showers. Being part of Mount Edgcumbe Park was fantastic, we enjoyed some lovely walks with lots of wildlife and amazing views - good value Sunday lunch in The Orangery a few hundred yards away (cakes looked great, will try them next time!). It's so easy to hop on the ferry across to Plymouth - recommend River Cottage Deli at Royal William Yard, and a walk down across the Hoe to the Barbican (you can get another boat right back to Royal William Yard). If you don't want to cook, the Edgcumbe Arms is on the doorstep - it's recently been refurbished, the staff are very friendly and we had a couple of good (hearty!) pub meals. We will definitely be back.
Mrs Hughes March 2016
Beautiful, well presented cottage with great access to Edgcumbe Park and the sea. Enjoyed our brief visit there and I'd recommend it.
Mr Clarke March 2016
A beautiful cosy little cottage in a stunning area of Cornwall. Days worth of walks and activities on the doorstep and Plymouth is only a short ferry ride away. The boot room and totally enclosed garden make this cottage perfect for dogs, and with beaches, woodland and open grass all close by, our dog really was in heaven!!
