R45 - Blair Cottage
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 5
In Kingsand, a very ancient, end-of-row cottage, probably early Georgian. Renovation has made it very comfortable, dove-tailing well with hugely thick walls, sash windows and irregular low doorways (some 5'5" - beware, tall people!). Only 200 yards from the beach, 50 yards from an excellent pub, 30 yards from the coastal path. At the front, a tiny bit of walled garden leading from a very narrow lane. Hall; cosy living room with TV/DVD, selection of DVDs; newly fitted kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, electric oven/gas hob) with granite worktops, table/chairs and back door to neat little walled courtyard (table/chairs) and useful outhouse for storing surfboards and bicycles. Stairs (stairgates) from hall up to landing, a double bedroom with a peep of the sea, and, off the double room, a child's single bedroom. One step down to bathroom (suite plus bath-shower, washing machine); steep stairs into a twin bedroom with 6' ceiling. Car park, 200 yards. A smashing, cosy 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.
