R410 - Draystone
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
In the heart of Cawsand, 100 yards from beach (foot ferry to Plymouth), pub and shop, a terraced 19th cent. cottage on three levels, seemingly bigger on the inside than out. Neat little enclosed sunny paved area (table/chairs) at the back, and virtually no traffic passes it.
Inside, modern and unfussy with wood and tiled floors downstairs. Front door to little porch into living room with comfy sofas and woodburner (TV/DVD, toys); through to dining room and handcrafted fitted kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, larder fridge) with lovely big dresser, old pine table. From the kitchen, glazed doors to the courtyard and useful outhouse with washing machine, tumble drier and fridge-freezer. Loo (washbasin). From the hall, stairs (stairgates) up to first floor with double bedroom (6' four-poster) and smart bathroom (suite plus bath-shower with his/hers washbasins). More stairs (stairgates) up to second floor and two more bedrooms – another double, and a bunk room. Loading and unloading outside – public car park, 80 yards. Arrival after 4pm. An excellent cottage.

The West Country 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.
Kingsand and Cawsand: exquisite adjoining fishing villages in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty sheltered by a wooded headland; pebble-and-sand beaches, family pubs, cafés, essential shops. Watersports hire in Cawsand. Whitsand Bay, 1 mile; Mount Edgcumbe (800 acres for walking), and pedestrian ferry to Plymouth (city amenities, theatre, cinema), 2½ miles. Plymouth by car ferry, 8½ miles.
