  • "Great holiday!"

    Could do with working deckchairs or loungers. Comfortable and with basics such as sugar, tea and coffee, salt and pepper available as well as cutlery, crockery, tools etc. The milk, fudge and flowers were much appreciated. Location was perfect!

  • "What really makes this cottage is the location with great views over the ocean and coastal walks from the door, and places of interest within easy reach."

    Drake had everything necessary for a lovely holiday, although there were a few silly niggles like the kitchen knives were very blunt, and when we tried to watch DVDs in the evening was very noisy and we struggled to hear the movies.

The property

Drake is a wonderfully appointed, former coastguard cottage, located within the forgotten area of Cornwall, on the beautiful Rame Peninsula.

This terraced cottage is situated just 50 yards from the beach and the historic Portwrinkle harbour, making the ideal base for a family getaway to the coast.

Upon entering this brightly decorated cottage you are welcomed to a cosy sitting room, boasting a comfortable sofa, which sits in front of a TV, ideal for snuggling up during a winter’s evening.

Moving through the cottage, you will find a well-equipped kitchen, housing all the necessities you will require, before enjoying your evening meal within the dining room, which poses spectacular sea views.

Follow the staircase up to the first floor, where you will discover two well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom where you will wake up looking directly out to sea, and an additional twin bedroom.

Completing the first floor is a luxury family bathroom, featuring a walk-in shower, separate bath, basin and WC.

Outside, you and your loved ones can appreciate the breath-taking views further on the lawned garden, complete with furniture.

For local amenities you will find a bar within a 15-minute walk and the nearest shop can be situated within 1.2 miles.

For days out you will be able to explore the three-mile long beach, ideal for walking, surfing and diving.

You can also walk to Rame Head, which is a beautiful coastal headland with views of tidal creeks, sandy beaches, lush farmland and country parks.

Alternatively, within a half-an-hours’ drive you will locate the port city of Plymouth, where you can explore its good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants, in addition to attractions including visiting the marina and the Smeaton’s Tower.

Come rain or shine, Drake cottage houses all you will need to enjoy a memorable holiday to Cornwall.

About the location


Torpoint 5 miles.

Set in a bowl of hills at the head of a tidal creek that leads to the Hamoaze, opposite the great naval city of Plymouth, Millbrook is located on the Rame Peninsula, "Cornwall's Forgotten Corner". Bounded by the Lynher and Tamar rivers, the Hamoaze and the sea, the area is deeply rural and designated as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has a good range of shops and pubs, while close by are the pretty coastal villages of Kingsand and Cawsand, from which a ferry will take you to Plymouth. Along the southern edges of the peninsula are miles of beautiful walks with glorious views of Rame Head. Just a mile south of Millbrook lies Whitsand Bay with its miles of uncrowded sandy RNLI patrolled beach and dramatic cliffs. A superb base for discovering the wild side of Cornwall.
