Waterside Holiday Cottage in Cornwall

December 11, 2018

Are you looking for a Waterside holiday cottage in Cornwall? Then look no further, Ancarva will be just what you want.  Step out of the door into the garden and enjoy this unique waterside location. Whilst Ancarva isn’t a traditional Cornish cottage it will certainly not disappoint you.  This luxury five-starholiday let is situated directly on the banks of the Tamar estuary and is your perfect waterside holiday location.

If you love sailing or Kayaking, then look no further.  Ancarva comes with the use of its own privatepontoon where you can moor your boat or simply fish with the children.  Our children spend hours crab fishing off the pontoon whilst we sit and watch, sipping a cool beer or glass of wine.

Ancarva has about 80m of direct water frontage making it theperfect waterside holiday location. Sitting on the covered terrace you can take in the beautiful scenery andwatch the wildlife come and go with each changing tide.  The view from the terrace across the water toward Mount Edgecumbe is breath-taking and you can often see deer grazing onthe hillside in the distance.

We visited Cornwall for many years before we purchased Ancarva and always looked to stay in properties close to the water.  Rarely did we find anywhere on the water'sedge which was so peaceful and yet still had all the facilities close by whichyou need for a fantastic holiday.  If you decide to come a stay in this unique location, I am sure you will fall in lovewith it just as we did.  Ancarva reallyhas the best of all worlds as its sits right on the banks of the river Tamar ina truly unique waterside setting yet it is with 2 miles of the fantastic beaches at Whitsand Bay.

Kayaks and small craft can be launched off the pontoon butIf you're planning on bringing your dinghy with you then there are launching facilities at the local boat yard.  The pontoon will provide a safe mooring for small craft although the tidal lake does dry out at low tide.  There are several charter firms in Plymouth if you’re looking for something a little more adventurous.


Ancarava is a unique 5* holiday home located on the Rame Peninsular in Cornwall very close to Millbrook, Kingsand and Cawsand. A fabulous holiday home offering a front-line waterfront experience in a sheltered, south-east facing position with both a private slipway and pontoon giving direct access onto the Tamar Estuary for three hours either side of high tide.  Ancarva is a great alternative to a traditional Cornish cottage with the benefits of contemporary modern living.
