In Cawsand, a stone's throw from the beach, a 17th cent. Grade II listed cottage, its interesting past hinted at by the smugglers' tunnel cleverly disguised in an under-stair cupboard. Once also the village sweetshop, it nestles alongside sister cottages on a narrow lane behind the square with just occasional vehicles passing. Behind, sheltered by a high wall and with a peek of the sea between rooftops, an enclosed suntrap paved terrace with decked area (table/chairs). Inside, good-sized rooms and original beams (some low lintels). From the lane, 3 steps up to tiled lobby and bathroom (suite plus bath-shower); stable doors and step up to living/dining room (TV/DVD, woodburner) and cheerful, fully-tiled kitchen area (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, freezer, larder fridge,); rear hall (space for beach gear/walking boots/children's board games) and shower-room (suite plus bidet). Steep narrow stairs (5'2” beam, rope rail) wind up to the first floor landing (smuggler's tunnel cupboard; door to garden) and two bedrooms, a double (5' bed), and a twin. Not suitable for anyone with mobility problems. Loading/unloading outside; car park, 175 yards (permit provided). Pub, shop, 50 yards. A welcoming cottage in a friendly seaside village.

The Cornwall 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 seasonal pedestrian ferry to Plymouth (city amenities, theatre, cinema), 2½ miles. Plymouth by car ferry, 8½ miles.
