About Mrs Susie Warwick
We live in Hertfordshire where we have run a a small family property company for over 40 years. We get down to Cawsand when we can - and when it is available! - but in the meantime, our wonderful housekeeper lives nearby and is available to contact for advice or help with the house.
Mrs Susie Warwick purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Mrs Susie Warwick chose Cawsand
Susie says : I noticed Seacroft for sale and in a sorry state but I could see how it could be and such a wonderful view from the living room on the first floor. We replaced all the window frames with timber sashes and added all sorts of little touches that I did not have at home, like the boiling tap in the kitchen and underfloor heating for all the stone floors. It took us just under a year to carry out the complete renovation from the roof down and then furnish it. We just love that we have been able to buy a gem of a Georgian house and have made it so cosy. It has been let from the moment it was ready in June 2009 and all our guests seems to appreciate it too, which makes it all worthwhile!
What makes this Cottage unique
One of Seacroft's unique benefits has to be that spectacular view. It has always had a friendly atmosphere and we imagine all the people who have lived in it going back several hundred years. The garden with barbecue and dining area is perfect for sunny days, some of which are in the winter! Of course being in the centre of a pretty, Cornish fishing village (one can still buy freshly caught fish and crabs from the fishermen occasionally) with both the beaches, everyday shopping and the local hostelries within easy walking distance really makes it a dream house.

Ideal location, small shop just up the road, plenty of pubs/ eateries within 5 minutes walk. 3 beaches to choose from,1 that allows dogs. Kayak/ paddle boards for rent. House very comfortable and well laid out. Garden is tiered with lots of steps, not overly suitable for very young children or elderly dogs. Car park 5 mins walk £25 for the week. Great stay thankyou.
Pleasant stay, beautiful views.
Seacroft has beautiful views and is in a very good location. The living room is really nice and spacious. It lacks the feeling of being loved. There were no little extras, the only essentials in the kitchen were a salt (nearly empty) and pepper mill. The garden is charming, if a little overgrown. The dining area in the kitchen is a bit cramped.
Overall we enjoyed our stay in Seacroft very much.
Wonderful stay in a beautiful home
My family and I visited Cawsand for a family get together. We had a fantastic time. The cottage is very well located, and has all the home comforts. Very well appointed and comfortable. The Pizza restaurant, a little down the way towards Kingsand's is very good and the breakfast are excellent. Would highly recommend the cottage and hope to return again one day soon.
Very nice cottage, in a lovely location.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, so close to beaches and walking. Well appointed and comfortable.
Great pub 2 mins away called The Half Way House Inn, that was dog friendly and served a pasty with a pint.
Very happy that you found everything you needed for your walking break. Being right on the coastal path, Seacroft is a perfect position for that. All the pubs, happily are dog and child friendly, with pasties, and homemade food including fresh fish dishes (of course!)
Lovely house. Great surprise as to how nice it was.😃
Had a great time. View is great. House is lovely and quite a surprise inside. Could be back as it was so handy for us
Glad that you enjoyed all Seacroft has to offer. It is a very lovely house which we love too. Very happy to have you all back, any time.
Second time staying here. Lovely house in an unspoilt Cornish village
Thank you! Come again - soon.
The Rame Peninsula: the twin villages of Cawsand and Kingsand are situated on a peninsula, also known as Cornwall's forgotten corner - and long may it be so! With many ancient and true stories of smugglers and shipwrecks, the pretty colour-washed cottages and winding, narrow streets of these ancient villages have a magical feeling.
Once the dividing county line between Devon and Cornwall, one almost feels in a time warp. Here are the holidays to make childhood memories - picnics on the beach, fishing and paddling in rock pools, barbecues in the garden going to sleep to the sound of the ocean.
The beach here has the Marine Conservation Society's highest water quality standard. Bathing is very safe.
It's a great village for eating out, too - look up the various pubs and their menus - Halfway House, The Devonport, The Rising Sun. All are child and dog-friendly.
Spectacular scenery, walking, birdwatching, painting, fishing or just lazing - it is the perfect place for the traditional family holiday or a romantic breakaway.
An historically rich area too: King Charles and Lord Nelson both came to the village. You will notice Palmerston's Follies (military forts) built in the 18th century to keep the French at bay and the 14th-century chapel at Rame Head where a beacon blazed at the time of the Armada.
Things to Do: There is a seasonal passenger ferry to Plymouth (2.5 miles) theatre, cinema, shops and National Marine Aquarium - no need for a car.
Cawsand and Kingsand are also a convenient base for visiting many of Cornwall's main tourist attractions:
The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Eden Project, Pentillie Castle, the amazing open-air Minack Theatre and many National Trust properties: Cothele, Lanhydrock and Antony House are just a few.
630-miles of the South West Coast Path make it a dream for walkers, taking in the whole of the coast of Cornwall and beyond so don't forget your walking boots.
Visit the beautiful, Grade 1 Listed gardens of the 800-acre Mount Edgcumbe Estate, just walk from the house along the coastal path, particularly lovely in Spring. Here there is a good restaurant/cafe to refresh yourselves for the home run.
Birdwatching- look out for Spoonbills, Black-tailed Godwits, Avocets and Oystercatchers which have all been seen.
Sea fishing is popular too as is Golf at Whitsand Bay Hotel(wonderful views), Looe and 2 courses at St Mellion (one of which is a Niklaus course).
Anyone from the US might be especially interested in Plymouth. The ferry from the village takes you straight into the old Barbican area from where the Pilgrims left, here also the Theatre Royal, shops and National Marine Aquarium.
Tucked away Coves: For a change you might try nearby Whitsand Bay beach - an enormous stretch of sand several kilometres long, opening into little secluded coves at the top of the tide, including Tregantle, Sharrow, Freathy and Tregonhawke beaches. Great for finding your own bit of privacy if you are a couple or family. You can surf here too.
