About Elbow Cottage

A pretty former gamekeeper’s cottage perched next to woodland on the Cotehele estate.

Elbow Cottage was originally built as a gamekeeper’s house and is now an elegant two-bedroom holiday cottage.The stone and slate property sits next to woodlands on the Cotehele estate and is just a short walk from the quay. 

After an alfresco breakfast, make your way out onto the Cothele estate and explore one of the many footpaths and circular walks that criss-cross this quiet corner of Cornwall. Your stay at Elbow Cottage directly helps us to preserve the estate and Tudor manor.  

Further afield, discover the delights of the Tamar Valley. Pick up the Tamar Valley Line from Plymouth to Gunnislake and cross the impressive Calstock viaduct taking in breath taking views of the surrounding countryside.

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.
