Waterfront Grade II Listed House, Estuary Views,Private Shingle Beach & Garden



Updated: 18-Oct-2016
Waterfront Holiday, 4 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms overlooking tranquil waters.

The house is located in a peaceful waterside hamlet just outside the grounds of Mount Edgcumbe Estate. From here you can go for lovely walks or discover sandy beaches, safe waters or picturesque fishing villages which are all a short drive away. A comfortable and welcoming cottage which has a lot of original features such as sash windows,old beams, fireplaces for those cracklings fires, wooden shutters and beautiful window seats to gaze over the estuary or listen to the waves lapping on the shore. The rooms are large, spacious, light and airy. Arranged over three floors, there are amazing views over the bay from every room. There's a lot to see in the cottage as there is an abundance of colourful paintings, eclectic artwork and ceramics dotted all over the cottage which have been collected from many countries over the years. The fresh decor is calming with a few feature walls to introduce warmth and interest and the neutral carpet adds to the tranquillity of the cottage.

About the Owner

I am from London but have lived overseas and now live in Kent.

Life can be hectic and I travel a lot so it is always so nice to go to Harbourside House and relax with family and friends. There are fabulous walks, great pubs, stunning beaches to soothe and nourish the soul. I never want to leave but when I do I always feel relaxed and calm.

Wonderful property

We had a lovely stay in this charming house which was well equipped with all you may need. The house had been beautifully decorated with a Christmas tree and stunning decorations which was a lovely surprise.

I would definitely recommend Harbourside House.

From the Owner

From the moment I got out of the car and filled my lungs with fresh Atlantic air and smelt the ozone coming off the sea I knew this was the place for me. It's a house where you can truly relax and recuperate. Listen to the lapping waves and witness the most amazing sunsets! I love the fact that it is secluded and peaceful and the surroundings are so beautiful but yet it is a stones throw away from the city of Plymouth. It is so versatile as I can go for walks nearby through forests,fields or by the coast or driving a short distance to picturesque fishing villages, soft, sandy beaches and cliff top roads as well as cosy pubs and fabulous restaurants.

From the Owner

Harbourside House is so versatile as you can go for walks nearby through forests,fields or by the coast or driving a short distance to picturesque fishing villages, soft, sandy beaches and cliff top roads as well as cozy pubs and fabulous restaurants. I can't think of a better place to chill. Built in the 18th century this historic cottage has character and soul and is steeped in history. With possible links to Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton to John Rudyard who built the wooden Eddystone lighthouse to the current Earl of Mount Edgcumbe. The house evokes images of bygone days and romantic liaisons and you can imagine yourself being transported to those times. If only walls could talk!
