About the home
In Cawsand, with the most stunning views out to sea over Plymouth Sound from nearly all rooms, an impressive, Grade II listed, four-storey house, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with its neighbours along the lane through the village, all keeping watch over Cawsand Bay. It has been totally transformed from its 19th cent. origins and is now the smartest of seaside homes, made thoroughly modern and comfortable by thoughtful owners as their own family holiday retreat. At the back, an enclosed, walled garden on four levels – a paved courtyard (barbecue, hooks for wetsuit storage etc., hot/cold outdoor shower) with stone steps (gated at top) up to a large wooden deck (sun loungers) above; more steps up to second decked area (table/chairs for 12), from which sloping paths up to the top level and a small, raised, lawned area with covered pergola.
From street, door to hall and two smart ground-floor bedrooms, both with superb sea views (shutters for privacy) – a double (5' bed, TV) with en suite bathroom (suite plus bath-shower), and a twin; shower-room (suite); utility room (freezer, washing machine, tumble drier, sink); door to courtyard/garden. On the first floor, width-of house, open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, electric range cooker/double oven, two fridges) with extendable dining table ideally positioned to enjoy ever-changing views (binoculars provided), woodburner, TV/Sky/DVD, iPod dock, sofas/chairs for 10; snug (TV/Sky/DVD/PVR) with further seating for 6 and French windows to deck/garden. On the second floor (stairgate), three bedrooms – a double (5' bed, TV) with en suite shower-room (suite) and a twin, both with sea views, and another neat twin; family bathroom (suite plus bath-shower, double washbasins). On the top floor (stairgate), the big attic master double bedroom (zip-linked 6' bed or twin, TV) with en suite bathroom (suite plus bath-shower) and plenty of space to enjoy the king-of-the-castle views (binoculars) out over the whole bay. Stairgates available.

The West Country / Cornwall region
South Cornwall: between the river Tamar and river Fowey and south of Bodmin Moor is inland Cornwall at its most gentle and lovely: deep, wooded valleys (including on Bodmin Moor's southern edge) between sheep and cattle-grazed fields; tidal creeks (exceptionally pretty Lerryn is on one of them). Most of it is delightfully by-passed by main roads.
On the coast are long sandy beaches (Whitsand Bay), high headlands and sandy coves at the foot of cliffs (Lantic Bay) to walk to, two of Cornwall's loveliest cove villages (Kingsand, Cawsand) and a classic fishing village (Polperro). From Looe - river-mouth fishing village/resort with sandy beach - you can fish and sail. Round here Daphne du Maurier lived and wrote. A branch line railway chugs pleasantly from Liskeard to Looe. Don't miss the Musical Instrument Museum near St Keyne. Just to the west is Cornwall's star modern attraction, The Eden Project, worth a once-a-year visit into the future indefinite, and Lanhydrock, a very lovely National Trust house and garden. Beyond them begins the extraordinary and spectacular china clay country, good for a visit (excellent museum). You should go to Cotehele beside the Tamar, too, and Calstock for the 'messing about in boats' activity.
