The West Country region
Cawsand is situated on the Rame peninsula which is on the SE coast of Cornwall just west of Plymouth.It is known as the " forgotten corner " but not to those who have discovered it,once found always revisited.
It is a rare oasis of pretty coloured washed houses and cottages set in a former fishing village which lies alongside the twin village of Kingsand.There are three beaches with very safe swimming and wonderful rock pools and coastal walks ,a paradise for adults and children alike.
The villages have four pubs ,a small hotel ,two cafes ,a general store and gift shops but has retained a tranquil atmsophere with no "hurdy gurdy" sea side attractions.A small ferry runs in the summer from one of the beaches to the oldest part of Plymouth ,the Barbican.
Once here you will find an area of great natural beauty, quiet secluded beaches, magnificent scenery and spectacular walks. The Coastal Path starts at Cremyll winding its way through the 800 acre Mount Edgcumbe Park which according to the Shell Guide is probably the most beautiful in England.??The villages of Kingsand and Cawsand, twinned with Porspoder in France, are the perfect base for the discerning tourist or holiday maker. These historical fishing villages are unspoilt by time and here you will find colour washed old cottages, narrow streets, pubs, restaurants and shops catering for your every need. Frequent winners of the Best Kept Village award and a conservation area set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the villages are an artist's dream. Used as a safe harbour for centuries, Cawsand Bay offers the perfect place to drop anchor and is popular for swimming, windsurfing, water skiing .
The Coastal Path takes us on at the edge of the sea and cliffs past Penlee Point and Rame Head with its 11th century monks' chapel and stunning views to the glorious sandy beaches of Whitsand Bay.??Inland the villages of Millbrook, St. John, Sheviock and St. Germans are all well worth a visit, as is Antony House, the 18th century home of the great Cornish family of Carew with its gardens sloping down to the Lynher River, near Torpoint.??For the more active, sea angling is very popular and bass, wrasse, pollock or mackerel are readily caught from the rocks. Bird watchers might see buzzards circling overhead, peregrines swooping past the cliffs or cormorants fishing. Golf and horse riding are within easy reach and Looe and Polperro just a few miles away.??This is the "Forgotten Corner", an oasis of calm away from the crowds and bustle. Whatever your interest you will find a visit or stay here a truly unforgettable experience.
