Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in kingsand for 2 weeks and absolutely loved the cottage. It was so nice to have enough space for all of us. It was very well equiped and Tony and Rachel were absolutely lovely. We especially enjoyed the coast walk to Mount Edgcumbe and the ferry ride to Plymouth from Cremyll. The village provides everything you need from Pubs to a small supermarket. We will definately come back in the future. Thank you for such a lovely stay!

PS: rent a small car if possible, the streets are very narrow.

Owner's Response: Dear Daniela - thank you so much for your lovely review. We were particularly delighted because of our error over arrival dates, your gracious acceptance of the alternative hotel accommodation that we arranged for your first night in Cornwall was a huge relief to us. Jackdaw is our family holiday home but we love to share it with appreciative guests, we loved having you and your family to stay and we are so pleased that you had a lovely time. Very best wishes Rachael and Tony

Jackdaw Delight

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Jackdaw Cottage in the quaint village of Kingsand was simply wonderful. The cottage could not be more centrally located, and the nearby car park was most convenient. We were very comfortable and all needs were met in terms of bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchen, living room, and back yard. We were a party of six adults, and there was plenty of room for all. Local eating establishments provided a nice variety of excellent fare, and the beauty of Kingsand, Cawsand, and the magnificent countryside was enough to guarantee we will return. We can only hope that Jackdaw Cottage will be available when we do!

An enjoyable stay and well located within the village.

  • 4 of 5

A great location and plenty of room in the cottage (we were a party of 5 and had a room each). There are 3 local pubs near by and the food/service was great. Parking in the local carpark was also convenient. The cottage could do with a little update but this would not put us off from staying again.

Delightful, comfortable house, clean and well-equipped.

  • 4 of 5

Kingsand and Cawsand are beautiful, unspoilt villages and well worth a visit. Well-placed for Looe, Polperro, Fowey, Eden Project etc but away from it all. Jackdaw Cottage is in a very convenient location and quite charming. Lovely courtyard for sunny breakfasts outside and evening meals too on warm days.

Character town house in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our 2 week stay. The house was 50 yds from the very good local shop and the same to a number of pubs and on to the beach. Lovely sitting room.

The house does need some love and attention though - particularly the uncomfortable beds. A decent sized freezer to cope with catering for 8 or 9 people is a must - and icebox doesn't cut it really.
