Remote cottage in ‘forgotten corner’ of Cornwall for sale

Lady Emma’s Cottage is a wonderful Victorian country lodge in the heart of the Mount Edgcumbe Country Park with wonderful water views. The property dates back to 1882 and was originally built as a pair of cottages but is now a single property.

The house itself has been sympathetically refurbished by the present owners to preserve many of its original features; the accommodation comprises reception hall, dining room, kitchen, drawing room, master bedroom, three further bedrooms and two family bathrooms with a ground floor shower and cloakroom.

The house has around an acre of its own gardens which are filled with specimen trees and shrubs, and some has been laid to lawn over a range of levelled terraces which have some interesting specimens of rhododendrons and azeleas.
