Just moments from the water this cute cottage with gorgeous interiors and a delightful little garden makes a perfect retreat for two at any time of year.

Inside Story

Step inside this unassuming terraced cottage and you will find a stunning interior with character, charm and space. Exposed beams, stone walls and stripped floors create a feeling of warmth throughout with a cosy wood burner for the hygge factor (the ritual of enjoying life’s simple pleasures…).

The ground floor has an open plan feel with a lovely sitting/dining room with wood burner forming the hub of the cottage. To the rear is a light and bright kitchen with breakfast bar and access out to the garden. Fairly steep stairs lead up to the beautiful bedroom which has an incredible feel of space and light. A frame beams, a Victorian fireplace (not in use) vaulted ceiling with sky lights give this room a real sense of drama! The bathroom is also huge with a claw foot bath and separate double shower cubicle. Fluffy towels, bath robes and toiletries are provided.

Outdoor Living

Immediately to the rear of the cottage is decked area with table and chairs and barbecue. Steps lead up to a further terrace with a bistro table – a real suntrap in summer.

Out and About

The cottage is situated in the sleepy village of Cargreen on the western bank of the Tamar River. Once a thriving fishing and merchant port, the quay is now predominantly used by private individuals and the Cargreen yacht club. Bring your own dinghie, kayak or canoe to launch from the slipway and head up river to discover creeks and inlets or downwater to the estuary and Plymouth sound.

Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the local countryside provides beautiful walking along the riverbank or across farmland to one of the other local villages. With names like Botusfleming and Landulph, you are sure to feel a long way from home!
If the beach calls then head for Whitsand Bay on the south coast with three miles of sand stretching from Kingsand in the east to Portwrinkle in the west. For a complete contrast Dartmoor National Park is within easy driving distance too for rugged walks and good pub lunches!
Plymouth may often be overlooked as a visitor destination but catch the passenger ferry from Cremyll and enjoy a day of shopping and lunching at the Barbican on the waterfront and you won’t be disappointed.
