In Kingsand, south-facing, on three levels, the end one of a row of ancient cottages with 17th cent. origins and pretty views over rooftops to the sea. In front, a tiny sunny garden (table/chairs) - more pedestrians and horse riders pass by than vehicles. A mere 30 yards away is the entrance to Mount Edgcumbe's 800 acre estate and the coastal path. Nearest good food/friendly pub, 50 yards; beach, 150 yards.

Inside, every inch a home. Stable doors (5'8” lintel) into sunlight-filled dining room with limestone floor, beams, lovely old dresser and multi-fuel stove; fitted galley kitchen (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave) with handcrafted oak work surfaces and butler sink. From dining room, half-turn steepish stairs (stairgates) up to living room (TV/DVD) with oak floor, open fire, comfy sofas, one of which is a sofa bed, and door to ancient back lane. At this level, a dear little single bedroom (5'6” lintel). More steep stairs up to a double bedroom (TV) with long views over the village and coast, plus smart, beamed bathroom (suite plus bath-shower). A gem of a cottage. Loading and unloading outside; car park, 150 yards.

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.

Cawsand

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.
