About the property

Single-storey cottage with stunning sea views, overlooking Cawsand Bay

Located in a unique position on the cliff above Cawsand beach, the cottage offers stunning sea views over Cawsand Bay and out to sea.

The villages of Kingsand and Cawsand with their maze of narrow streets, pretty pastel-coloured houses, excellent pubs and restaurants, grocery store, art gallery, post office and gift shops are right on your doorstep and the neighbouring village of Millbrook is just a mile away. There you will find a supermarket, greengrocers/health food shop, cash point, fish and chip shop and a garage.

The tiered garden has terraces on various levels from which you can enjoy the spectacular sea views and the large sun-deck overlooking the sea is a wonderful place to relax and watch the array of yachts, fishing boats and navy vessels passing by.

If you want to go further afield the city of Plymouth with its abundance of shops, restaurants, theatres etc. is easily reached via the passenger ferry which departs several times a day from Cawsand beach. Whether you are looking for a relaxing break or something more energetic, this forgotten corner of Cornwall is the perfect place to spend your holiday.

The cottage has 3 double bedrooms (sleeps 5), living room, kitchen/dining area, bathroom and separate toilet.

About Avril & Karel van de Velde

My grandfather built the cottage and always called it his little piece of heaven, which it certainly is. I have wonderful memories of all the holidays I spent in Cawsand as a child and years later I still find it a magical place. Several years ago my husband and I completely refurbished and extended the cottage and landscaped the gardens to create even more terraces from which to enjoy the wonderful views. As my husband is Dutch we spend most of the year in Holland but try to come to Cawsand as much as possible and always find it really difficult to leave again.

What makes this cottage unique

The location of our cottage is idyllic. It’s nestled in a country lane overlooking the sea and has spectacular views from the living room, dining area and master bedroom. It’s located far enough away from the village to be really quiet and peaceful but close enough to the village to be able to walk to the pubs, restaurants and local shops. The beach, which is directly below the cottage, is a couple of minutes’ walk away and the South West Coast path runs behind the property making it the ideal location for walkers.

It was even better than it looked in the pictures

  • 5 of 5

The property was in a perfect location. Overlooking the sea and a very short walk to pubs, shops and cafes. As week as being right on the coastal path.

Wonderful Views

  • 4 of 5

Just back from a week's stay in this beautiful village with fantastic views.

The house is tastefully decorated and very comfortable.

The only drawback is the fact that there is only one bathroom and only one loo but otherwise 100% rating.
