About Edgcumbe

A converted barn with sea views and a pretty garden, close to the Dodman point.

Housed in a traditional stone barn with adjoining cottage Bodrugan, Edgcumbe is located near the hamlet of Penare. With a first floor sitting room to maximise countryside views, and a secluded, private garden, Edgcumbe has been thoughtfully renovated with holiday makers in mind. 

If you can tear yourself from the tranquillity of the cottage, Dodman Point, the highest point in south Cornwall is just a short walk away, and well worth the trip. 

Visit nearby Trerice, a beautiful Elizibethan manor house owned and conserved by the National Trust. Or, if walking is more your thing, join up with the South West Coast Path for some of the best rambling in the country.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
