Yew Tree Cottage

About us

Fall in love with the beauty and charm of Mount Edgcumbe at this absolute gem of a cottage. Originally built in the early 1900s this immaculate semi-detached cottage has been beautifully decorated and stylishly furnished with the utmost care and attention. The open plan living-room on the first floor provides views of the countryside setting and with the warming wood-burner you can enjoy them whatever the season. Two super comfy bedrooms, one on the second floor and the other on the ground floor, provide both flexibility and privacy, and the oh so stylish bathroom will ensure long holiday soaks. Set in the heart of the 865 acres of glorious parkland on the beautiful Rame peninsula, Yew Tree Cottage is perfect for families and friends who love the great outdoors.

This so called 'forgotten corner of Cornwall' is as quintessentially Cornish as it gets, with its pretty harbour villages, sandy beaches and coves, historic houses and clifftops walks. However why not ditch the car and discover all the thrills and delights on offer across the park, you won't be disappointed. Enjoy the acres of parkland, gardens and waterside setting by foot, bike or the all-terrain Segways. Indulge in some retail therapy, a tasty lunch or even a beauty treatment at the Barrow Centre, directly behind the cottage, or browse around the ancestral home of the Earls. Stroll to the bottom of the hill and catch the ferry over to the maritime city of Plymouth - wander around the historic Barbican and Hoe or stop off at the city's latest lifestyle destination, 'The Royal William Yard', with restaurants, food markets and open-air cinema and events.
