Lovely location and cottage. Very nicely furnished and equipped. Good information provided about local area and nice to have extras such as dishwasher tablets etc. The duty Manager Nick was very helpful . We’d love to go back.

We had visited Mount Edgcumbe before so had high expectations unfortunately Yew Tree Cottage did let us down. On arrival you are greeted by a huge filthy blue door, inside the cottage the first bedroom there is a dreadful smell of fusty old and damp that was so bad we had to wash everything wether we wore it or not and it would have been nice if the fitted sheets actually fit the mattress and weren’t two sizes to small so you slept with a corner in the middle of you. The boot room door didn’t open without the strength of the hulk so we had to call maintenance who came the next day and fixed the door and he also tidied up the courtyard that was dirty and overgrown. The cottage is very very dark and the lighting inside isn’t the best so on dark gloomy days even with the lights on it’s still really dark. The kitchen & table were filthy and when we spilt some water on the floor and wiped it up so was the floor, not sure it had been cleaned. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you needed they just needed a wash. The cottage was super warm & cosy, we had to turn the heaters off some days it was too hot. The bathroom was lovely & the bath was fantastic after a day on the beach. This cottage could be a gem just needs some TLC.

Potentially a very nice cottage, let down by a few details. Amazing location, loved the park, which is kept very clean, lots of walks to enjoy. Ate at The Orangery twice, and would recommend. A pleasant coastal walk to Cawsand and loved the Devonport Inn and little coves there. Thoroughly enjoyed a meal at Carew Arms in nearby Antony.

Great location for exploring the Rame peninsula and across to Plymouth on the cremmil ferry. Would recommend to anyone

August 2018

Stunning location and beautiful surroundings ideal if you are keen walkers. But if you want to walk down to the boat and go across to the other side. There is a steep hill to walk backup. We had an amazing time there and we look forward to going back xxx

This cottage is a real home from home. Beautiful surroundings and very peaceful.

July 2018

We enjoyed the stay very much. Especially in the evening we had the park for ourselves alone, picnicking at sunset on the large lawn in front of the castle, Earls private garden just for us, fast ferry to Plymouth, great house, great care by Classic Cottages and the owner Chris. Small problems were resolved quickly and competently. We will gladly come again

May 2018

Really lovely cottage, beautifully decorated, in the middle of a lovely country park. The cottage is roomy and very comfortable.

March 2018

Beautifully decorated. Excellent location. Such a shame our otherwise perfect holiday was ruined by the bed in the main bedroom being almost on the floor. We felt like we were camping out. Extremely uncomfortable and totally unsuitable for anyone with any motility issues......... Thank you

Thanks for reviewing Yew Tree Cottage - the Mount Edgcumbe Estate is in a wonderful location as you found, and we hope you enjoyed the amazing walks. It was a shame that you found the bed too low; it is a beautifully stylish bed frame but we can appreciate it is lower than a standard divan. We do try to show this in the photos, but we'll see if there is a way to make this clearer - if this is particularly important to your stay, please don't hesitate to ask our Bookings team for more information.
