Although there is no parking at the house, it is possible to park right at the front door to load and unload and the carparks at either end of the village, make it an easy walk for the driver to bring the car to the house for the rest of the family when taking a day out.
One can buy a weekly ticket for the car-park which costs in the region of £27 for the week.
A deposit secures the property. The rent is not due until 4 weeks before your stay. A cautionary deposit is held in addition to the rental, against breakages, this is returned within a few days of the end of your stay.
Access to the property is from 4pm and we ask you to vacate the house by 10 am on the day of departure.
Out of the high seasons it is also possible to rent the house with fewer bedrooms but you have the use of the whole house for 2 - 6 people and the rates are correspondingly less. Please ask for details.
Special offer : We have a second cottage also in Garrett Street - sleeping up to 5. If you have a larger party you may rent both houses in the same week for a 5% discount.
The West Country region
Being far south, this area is one of the warmest in the UK and Cawsand is situated in a spot which seems to catch the best of the weather. With views over the Sound to Plymouth, one often catches the wonderful sight of Naval ships passing by.
Because of the climate and the soil (acid) there are some really beautiful gardens all over the county and the nearest, Antony House and Lanhydrock are particularly special owned by the National Trust. There are also the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project making an easy day out.
Sailing, surfing, cycling, golf, birdwatching and walking are all very popular pastimes here for families, especially and the beaches offer safe bathing with surfing (and a summer school for all levels) at 5-mile long Whitsand Bay, a mile away. Here, too, it is easy to find private, secluded coves.
The ancient twin seaside villages of Cawsand and Kingsand are situated in that part of Cornwall known as 'the forgotten corner'. These ancient fishing villages, with their roots in a smuggling past, are the holiday villages of British summer holidays in days gone by - not lost forever but are still HERE in Cawsand & Kingsand.
Safe, sandy beaches within a stones throw of the house, fishing in rock pools, surfing and barbecues in the garden to the sound of the waves: makes this place perfect for families. With the South West Coastal Path passing right through the villages, it is a great place for walkers whilst birdwatching here and on the estuary nearby at Antony, offers sights of rare wading birds such as Spoonbill and Black-tailed Godwit as well as Avocets and Oystercatchers.
Sailing and fishing both line and sea-fishing are easily arranged.
There are more than 6 different places to eat in the village - several old, listed, beamed pubs with good food, coffee shops and small hotel/restaurant.

"Amazing property in idyllic location"
We stayed at Seacroft over New Year and it was the perfect accommodation. The property sleeps 8 people in large rooms with comfortable beds, and it has a very big lounge, kitchen with dining space for 8 and a lovely terrace which sadly we didn't use due to the December/January weather!
The house was immaculate in presentation, with extra touches like a welcome note, local information and board games. It was cosy and warm with luxury features like under floor heating and a hot tap so no need to ever wait for a kettle to boil!
The lounge and all bedrooms have sea views and Cawsand itself is a quaint seaside village with some lovely pubs and walks. Seacroft is fantastic accommodation for families or groups of friends who want a peaceful and relaxing stay on the Cornish coast.
We do try very hard to make sure everything is as we would expect in our own home and that the welcome is as it would be for friends.
We so appreciate the time taken to complete a Review and of course, it's all the better when guests have enjoyed all that Seacroft has to offer.
Summertime is even better - see you again soon !

"We have had a wonderful time at Seacroft."
We have had a wonderful time at Seacroft; its a
superb house and it is furnished beautifully. There was everything that we
needed , and more , in the house. This is the 3rd house we have rented in the
village over the last 6 years and it beats the others in all aspects.
The view from the property is wonderful. The village is peaceful, no need to use the car. Plenty of great walks from the cottage.
Seacroft is a very special house in a special village. I hope that this and other reviews here will reassure anyone who may be concerned that we do not accept credit cards (it is so expensive) that cash payment is safe with us.
This forgotton corner of Cornwall, Cawsand is so easily accessible and with plenty to occupy young and old - a holiday in Seacroft is not to be missed.

"Not what you would expect for the cost!"
Contrary to what I have read in other reviews, my sister and I found this property somewhat disappointing given the cost. It was a lovely house, with sea views, but we most certainly didn't find it comfortable.
The mattresses on the upstairs beds were not at all supportive, the pillows ridiculously large and firm (both need replacing). The first night neither of us slept very much at all. We asked the owner whether she had any feather pillows and were told that the pillows were hypoallergenic and could not be replaced. So my sister used a spare duvet as a pillow, I used a feather scatter cushion from the sofa (strange that the hypoallergenic argument shouldn't apply to the scatter cushions).
Extremely disappointed in the owners attitude - had I been in her position and taking not a modest amount of money from clients I should hope that I would go out of my way to make sure that they were comfortable and happy. We do after all expect to get what we pay for!
Other issues were that the upper stairs were steep and winding and there was nothing to hold on to, making them quite dangerous. The provision of towels wasn't exactly generous - as we had paid for the use of two double rooms one would expect to get more than just one bath and one hand towel each! There are two bathrooms and a separate toilet, so were we expected to carry our lone hand towel around with us?!
From my experience of other holiday cottages (and none so expensive as this), I would also expect to be provided with new dishcloths and a few dishwasher tablets - not the case here, and the dishcloths were old and smelly. We also had to wash some of the crockery and utensils before use.
My sister emailed the owner of Seacroft after our holiday who was apparently apologetic for the issues that spoiled our stay. It's a shame she wasn't more interested while we were actually there.
These guests did not speak to me whilst they were in residence, they spoke to my caretaker. I am extremely sorry that these guests were uncomfortable but this is the very first time in four years that anyone has had such a problem. The matresses and pillows are top quality but they are not feather. There should certainly have been fresh kitchen cloths and I am sorry that they were not there on this occasion.

This house has everything you could want.From comfortable beds to an ever- changing sea view. Oh - and instant boiling water. Park your car in one of the two carparks and leave it there.
Cawsand/Kingsand are an ideal, typical Cornish combined villages tumbling into each other.
With beaches, rock pools, swimming, sailing,ferry to Plymouth , lovely walks , and welcoming hostelries,[even the natives are very friendiy].All it needs is reasonable weather!!!

"Lovely comfortable house with superb views in an ideal family holiday resort"
The property was as described on the website and communications with the owner were clear and prompt. We had everything we needed in the house and it was comfortable and roomy. The layout ensured privacy and space for everyone. The garden and the stairs to the top floor bedrooms and bathroom would limit access for anyone with mobility problems. Our ages ranged from 7 to 65 and it suited us fine!
Kingsand and Cawsand are great villages for an extended family holiday and everyone we met was very friendly and helpful. The beaches were marvellous for keeping children, teenagers and adults amused (canoeing, rook pooling, swimming, taking the ferry to Plymouth, watching the boats and ships).

This house is stunning and the perfect base from which to explore the lovely villages of Kingsand and Cawsand. The house is really well equipped and despite grey weather, we had a fabulous week here, … More
