Wonderful Poldark country
St. Andrew's is a spacious luxury cottage with wonderful sea views enjoyed from its terraced gardens or from in the shower! Wonderful for families, groups of friends and pet friendly. Tucked away up a narrow quiet coastal lane, just a short walk from one of the three beaches surrounding the pretty and unspoilt villages of Cawsand and Kingsand on the Rame Peninsula. Good location for weddings at Polhawn Fort & Mount Edgecumbe.
The property has a contemporary feel and has a well equipped kitchen, with all modern appliances, a large terraced garden with stunning sea views, where guests can relax and enjoy dining al fresco in the sunshine or on cooler evening inside in front of a log burning fire.

The Cornwall region
Cawsand and Kingsand are adjoining villages, on the south side of the Cornish Coast, just over the Devon border. Originally a fishing village with a colourful history of smuggling and naval daring, it is unspoilt by time, with little traffic on the one-way through road.
In times past, the pilot cutter gigs would race to get their pilots aboard the ships first so as to receive the custom from the ships and carry their cargoes ashore, sometimes illegally. Local tales have it that there are various coastal tunnels in the village which were used by smugglers. There is still a taste of this way of life with the active gig club in the village, with the gigs Spirit of Rame, Minnadhu and Penlee Point all regularly taking to the water. Admiral Nelson would come ashore here and the Emperor Napoleon was briefly at anchor in Cawsand Bay, en route to exile in St Helena.
We are in a conservation area of outstanding natural beauty, with a range of coastal and countryside walks, ranging from a stroll to a local pub to challenging treks for the more adventurous. The bay is popular with sailing boats and pleasure boats, being protected from the harsher elements by the natural coastline. Cawsand Beach is only a couple of minutes walk away from the cottage, with a sandy beach, rock pools and safe designated swimming area. Kayaking and diving or snorkelling are also popular and so is sea angling, with a good variety of fish being caught from the rocks or further out on boats. Golf and horse riding are within easy reach.
The historic village of St. Germans is well worth a visit and so is the nearby Anthony House and gardens, where the recent Tim Burton film Alice in Wonderland was filmed.

"Beautiful house in a beautiful location"
We stayed at the cottage from 18th August- 25th August 2012 with 7 adults (young professionals/old friends) and one 3 year old child.
The location was absolutely beautiful and we felt that pictures do not truly reflect the beauty of the cottage and the stunning views it offers to the bay. Therefore, we were very pleased when we got to the house and saw that everything was just as promised and more.
The cottage itself is big and offered plenty of space and privacy for our mixed group.
The house was sparkly clean when we arrived, which was wonderful. The house is really beautifully done and has got everything you need, from comfy beds to all the tools in the kitchen. The living room space was big enough for our large group. We truly enjoyed it on the occasional rainy nights and made good use of the log fire.
We were extremely lucky with the weather and were able to have dinners and BBQs outside in the garden and enjoy the view with the glass of wine.
Although the garden is arranged over 3 levels, we never felt that our 3 years old daughter was in any danger of falling or tripping, as she kept running up and down the stairs. We particularly loved the rain shower in the upstairs bathroom that has beutiful view to the bay, and our little girl who usually hates shower could not get enough of it.
The little town is very pretty and cute. And there is plenty to do around the area. We were given booklet with the local information by the owners, which we found very useful for planning activities. the owners were very welcoming and helpful.
Overall, it was great holiday in a beautiful location.

"Perfect holiday - Lovely house in a beautiful Cornish seaside village"
We had a wonderful half term holiday in this charming and comfortable house, which was very well and thoughtfully equipped - we especially appreciated the comfy beds!
The house is light, bright and spacious and we loved the layout which maximised space and was ideal for family holiday living.
The newly created terraced garden is lovely and it was a great treat to have breakfast on the terrace enjoying the stunning views in the autumn sun.
The location is perfect in the beautiful and friendly seaside village, enhanced by the
lack of cars on the streets.
We had a lovely day out at Porfell, great walks and pub lunches. Especially
recommended are the VIew restaurant and Devonport pub.
We will certainly be back!
