Lady Emma's Cottage is one of the most stunning and exclusive retreats in the United Kingdom. The 1882 Arts and Crafts property sits framed on one side by 865 acres of Grade 1 listed Mount Edgcumbe Estate and on the other by the wonders of Plymouth Sound, Drake's Island and the Mew Stone. Situated on the farthest reach of the Rame Peninsula, this fabulous cottage is surrounded by secluded woodland with its own generous garden including a hot tub offering total privacy whilst capturing the stunning views. Accessed by woodland roads (sometimes used by walkers) and via a locked gate you will be staying at one of Britain's most beautiful locations. A deer track in front of Lady Emma's leads down almost immediately to Wilderness Beach (shingle) with unrivalled views both out to sea and across to the maritime city of Plymouth, which, despite your seclusion, is only a short drive and ferry trip away.
Inside, this lovely house is beautifully furnished and decorated. The sitting-room has 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.
