  • “The property is finished to a high ...”
    The property is finished to a high standard and has been very well thought out, it lacks for nothing essential to everyday living and more besides. The accommodation is spacious and the views spectacular.

The property

This stunning, detached, contemporary holiday home is situated on the banks of the River Tamar near Millbrook on the beautiful and much sought after Rame Peninsula.

In an idyllic location directly on the water’s edge with its own mooring and pontoon, this special property was listed in the Sunday Times as one of the best 50 British cottages for summer and is perfect for a group of friends or a family looking to enjoy a truly memorable holiday.

With amazing scenery and breathtaking panoramic views across the river to the historic Mount Edgcumbe estate and beyond, Ancarva is a paradise for sailing enthusiasts or for anyone looking for the absolute best in luxury accommodation set within the most beautiful and relaxing location imaginable.

The children will enjoy the secluded waters lapping the pebbly beach and the adults will delight in the fabulous surroundings and the tasteful contemporary design.

After an enjoyable drive to this hidden corner of south east Cornwall, the moment you enter directly into the stunning open plan living area at this special property you will experience a wow factor that just keeps growing.

Step down into the lower ground floor and admire the stylish family bathroom and four beautifully-furnished bedrooms, two of which benefit from en-suite facilities.

Each bedroom boasts sliding doors through which you can access the terrace and lawned garden outside, providing a perfect haven into which you can retreat and surround yourself with tranquil scenes of the river at sunset.

Upstairs, the spacious open plan living area is truly luxurious, with floor-to-ceiling glazing and an ultra-modern kitchen which opens onto a stunning terrace where you can dine alfresco in the best surroundings, whilst gazing out at the boats sailing by and the horizon beyond.

If you can be tempted away from Ancarva either by boat or car, you will be rewarded with the beautiful beaches and secluded coves all along the coast.

There is a plethora of excellent places to dine, including The View near Whitsand Bay and The Canteen at Maker Heights.

The charming seaside villages of Cawsand and Kingsand are also close by and the magical Rame Peninsula is just waiting to be explored.

Ancarva is such a special place to stay at any time of year; it really does have it all.

About the location


Whitsand Bay 1 mile; Plymouth 8 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.
