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.
