About Lake View

Completed in July 2017, Lake View is the fruit of a labour of love for owners, Maggie & Tim. Set in their home, the picturesque village of Millbrook, Lake View is a detached, 4 bed, luxury Cornish holiday cottage. Set over three floors, it boasts views toward Millbrook Lake. A spacious, open plan living space spread across the entire first floor spills out on to a large, beautifully landscaped, private garden to the rear, and a balcony that stretches the width of the house to the front. Meanwhile, two of the four double bedrooms, that sleep up to 8 adults, offer flexible sleeping arrangements through the clever use of innovative zip-and-link beds. 

The central location of Lake View within the Rame Peninsula, often referred to as 'The Forgotten Corner of Cornwall, makes it the perfect base for exploring all that South East Cornwall has to offer. From sleepy Cornish fishing villages and stunning sandy beaches, to stately homes with formal gardens and amazing attractions like the Eden Project, there is something for everyone here.

"Enjoy looking around our website and we hope to welcome you to our little part of Cornwall very soon."

The Forgotten Corner

As it is commonly referred to, The Forgotten Corner of Cornwall's South East coast truly is a beautiful, unspoilt landscape. With beaches, coastal and country walks, picturesque fishing villages and stately homes, you'll feel hundreds of miles away from life's usual hustle & bustle. There's lots to explore, and Lake View places you right at the heart of it all - here are a few of our favourite bits of our little corner of Cornwall.

The Fishing Villages of Kingsand & Cawsand

The postcard-perfect, twinned fishing villages of Kingsand & Cawsand are less than 30 minutes walk from Lake View. Once famous for their appeal amongst smugglers, the villages have remained largely untouched by the unwavering advance of modern society. Boasting spectacular views across Plymouth Sound, sand & shingle beaches and, of course, a handful of traditional Cornish pubs, you won't want to miss this real taste of Cornwall.

The Golden Sands of Whitsand Bay

With 3 miles of untouched, spectacular sandy beaches hidden beneath sheer cliffs, Whitsand Bay is not only one of Cornwall's best kept secrets, but one of the UK's. Descending through small, uneven gravel paths and some steep sets of steps, Whitsand Bay is not the most easily accessible. But of course, it is for that exact reason that it has remained the beautiful, unspoilt coastline that it is today. Unmissable, if you're willing and you're able.

Mount Edgcumbe House & Country Park

Built between 1547 and 1553, and home to the Earls of Edgcumbe for over 400 years, Mount Edgcumbe House is a Grade II listed stately home with expansive and immaculately kept Grade I listed gardens. The grounds of the park are free to enter and open year round. You'll find something for everyone here, from activities such as Adventure Segway, to a selection of traditional old shops & trades, such as the local blacksmiths, waiting to be discovered.

Rame Head & St Michael's Chapel

Sat atop the coastal headland of Rame Head is St Michael's, a 14th Century chapel. Located along the South West Coast Path, the views from Rame Head are ones not to be missed. With Whitsand Bay to the West, and views toward Plymouth to the East. Steeped in history, this headland is suspected to be the site of an even more ancient Celtic Hermitage, it was used as a lookout point to warn of the Spanish Armada in the 16th Century, and later used as a defensive encampment during both WWI & WWII.

The Bustling Fishing Town of Looe

Still an active fishing port, Looe's narrow maze of streets conceal some fantastic places to eat. If you like fresh seafood, it doesn't get much fresher than here. With award winning fish and chips and a selection of gastro pubs overlooking the harbour, Looe is a placed not to be missed if you love seafood. In addition to the fantastic food, there are lots of quirky and intriguing little shops for you to discover, and an array of local attractions. Looe is approximately 30 minutes from Lake View by car.

Historic Plymouth - Britain's Ocean City

Situated just across the natural border of Plymouth Sound, in Devon, the city of Plymouth is well worth a visit. Especially if you take the ferry from Cawsand Beach, which runs during the seasonal months and lands in the historical area of Plymouth known as The Barbican. Here, lining the cobbled streets, you'll find listed buildings, bars, restaurants and shops, the National Marine Aquarium and even the world famous Plymouth Gin Distillery, which has been producing gin since 1793. Land-lovers can also visit Plymouth via the Tamar Bridge!
