- Peaceful location, close to Pub and village beaches, ideal for families
We live in Western Australia with our dogs Lenny and Lucky. Having gone to college close by, as well as having friends in the villages, we bought Draystone and were fortunate enough to get married and live in Cawsand for a couple of years before work took us further afield. We hope that you get to enjoy Draystone and the surrounding areas.
John purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why John chose Maker-with-Rame
It's just a lovely place to live beside the sea, with lots of variety, whether walking along the coast path, paddling a kayak out in the Sound or relaxing outside one of the pubs or cafes.
What makes this Cottage unique
Close to the village beaches, virtually a traffic free village. Never to far from a cafe…. or a beer.

A home from home
Just lovely! We'll be back....thanks ever so much to Jo too for being so friendly.
Gorgeous cottage right in the middle of the village
The photographs don't really do this cottage justice - it is lovely, warm, comfortable and really well equipped. Right in the middle of the village, a minute's walk from the beach and almost traffic free - it was ideal for us, our two teenagers and the dog. The kitchen (underfloor heating) is fabulous - opening out onto a small courtyard garden that was a real suntrap all day long - even in early April we were sitting out there for breakfast and enjoying the last of the sunlight after 5pm. The lounge is well furnished with sofas and a great log burner but we would have liked a bigger tv next time - our eyesight isn't what it once was! Beds really comfy, bathroom very snazzy and plenty of hot water for showers. It really is very nicely done throughout with lots of attention to detail and a real home from home (although probably slightly nicer than our home if truth be told)
It was wonderful to be able to roll out of the house with the dog and go to the beach every morning (dog friendly until Easter) and have a number of shops serving good coffee with a slight walk up the hill in Kingsland to get great fresh bread. Don't miss the pizzas at the Old Bakery - pre order on a Sunday to pick up Monday night. There are plentiful pubs in the Cawsand and Kingsland and great walking right from your doorstep. A perfect UK break and the Rame peninsular is unspoilt and beautiful.
We didn't want to come home.
A cozy, comfy cottage in a perfect location.
The cottage had everything we needed and was clean, warm and comfortable. The owner responded very quickly and supplied all the information we needed to know. We look forward to visiting Draystone again in the future.
Fabulous, property had everything we needed, great location
Six of us stayed for a “getaway” girls weekend. The property was great and very well equipped. We enjoyed sitting around the fire, chatting and also socialising and eating and drinking around the farmhouse table! Property is a good size, but has a very cosy feel about it. Great location for car park, pubs, beach and walks. The pubs are all different, but all offer good pub food and hospitality. We took some dvds in case it rained and we wanted a film, but we were lucky with weather and did not use tv. That would be our only negative, a small tv, but this did not impact on us in any way. However it might if you are a family with children who like TV and you were unlucky with the weather. The property was very clean and house manager is close by if you need anything. Booking was easy and owner extremely helpful. We would recommend this property, we had a great stay.
Wonderful cosy cottage
We stopped over the New Year. The cottage was lovely and cosy, less than 2 minutes from the beach and one of the 4 pubs in Cawsand. It was clean and well decorated. There were 5 of us and there was plenty of room. We didn't use the courtyard much but I can imagine its a lovely bit of outside space in the summer. John was very helpful and full of useful information. Overall a wonderful place to stay.
Wonderful cosy home with everything
Perfect spot for a festive getaway. Lovely house in brilliant location and perfectly equipped.
Special interest holidays:
Excellent Mountain Biking to be had on Dartmoor.

Lovely coastal path walks in either direction, Rame Head (Westwards), Edgcumbe Estate and Maker (Eastwards).
Plymouth is the closest town, approximately 50min by road across the Tamar Bridge, or Torpoint Ferry. The closest railway station is St Germans or Liskeard approximately 25 mins by car. In summer it is possible to arrive by foot ferry from the Barbican, Plymouth. Plymouth/Newquay/Exeter are the best airports to arrive from. Plymouth - Roscoff Ferry terminal 50 mins by car.
Eden Project at St Austell is 50 min away by car. Dartmoor and Exmoor are approximately an hour away. The historical city of Plymouth is a foot ferry ride from the beach in the summer, or 50 min by the Torpoint Ferry/Tamar Bridge.
Several excellent National Trust properties are close by, St Anthony, Lostwithiel, Lanhydrock, Cotele, and Saltram House. Plymouth has the historical Barbican, Aquarium, and Mayflower steps, as well as the Hoe, (Catch the foot ferry over from the beach in the summer).
Kingsand/Cawsand has a lovely vibrant community. The coastal scenery is spectacular. The local pubs all provide good food and local ale! The villages have a number of small shops to buy essential provisions. Fresh fish can ordered locally. The local pubs and cafes, I'd recommend them all for different reasons, but the Devonport, and Crossed Keys are recommended, and a walk or cycle ride to the Cliff Top Cafe at Freathy is not to be missed. The View at Freathy for fresh fish is excellent, (summer only).
Parking is close by the property in a public carpark, 5min walk away. Weekly tickets can be purchased (£35 Cornwall.gov website). Pick up and drop off outside the property is no problem.
