About Malt House

A unique house on the Cotehele estate with a tower room and stylish interiors.

You’ll be able to retreat to the ‘tower room’ or lounge on the limekiln-top garden when you stay in this uniquely striking house. The three-bedroom quay-side cottage sits on the historic Cotehele estate, where the River Tamar meanders its way past, providing you with captivating views of the water.


In stark contrast to its rustic turret-adorned exterior, bright and stylish interiors run throughout. You’ll find a modern kitchen and dining space complete with a multi-fuel stove, three spacious bedrooms, a large living room and a contemporary bathroom. And as you’ll be within a stone’s throw to the water’s edge, there’s storage for you to bring your own canoe or kayak.


You’ll also have free, out of hours access to the gardens and wider estate of Cotehele, where you’ll be able to explore its network of walking trails. Further afield, The Tamar Valley, which meanders down from Launceston into the Plymouth Estuary, offers an abundance of walking, cycling and horse riding adventures. Or if you prefer to let the train take the strain, take the Tamar Valley Line from Plymouth the Gunnislake crossing the Calstock viaduct.

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.
