Location description from owner

The England region

The village of Kingsand is located on the Rame peninsula, known as Cornwall's Forgotten Corner. There is a small beach right outside the house and fabulous rock pools for children to explore. The stunning beaches of Whitsand Bay are a short drive (and easy park) away.

This article was in the Guardian recently:

Kingsand

Kingsand Cawsand has four great pubs and a hotel within easy walk serving good food (booking recommended.) The well stocked village shop is within a few minutes' walk of the property serving hot pasties - perfect for that picnic. There is a friendly cafe/ ice cream parlour on the beach as well as a deli/ cafe/ bakery (in season.)

Parking is in the central car park which is five minutes' walk and weekly swipe cards can be purchased. (Unloading 70 yards from the property. )

There is a foot ferry from Cawsand Beach at regular intervals during the spring/ summer months going right to the heart of Plymouth's Barbican with easy access for the aquarium.

Mount Edgcumbe country park borders the village with good walks there & on the other side up to Penlee coastguard station and over to the ancient church of Rame overlooking Whitsand Bay.

Looe and Polperro, with their great fishmarket, are a half hour's drive as is the Monkey Sanctuary.

Indoor heated swimming pool, 2.5 miles.

Very convenient for Polhawn Fort.

“exceeded expectations”

Reviewed 17 Nov 2016

A lovely house all on one level which gave the best views in Kingsand. Very well decorated and is obviously used by the owners not just a rental. Kitchens and bathrooms stocked with numerous things one needs which means you don't have to shop for everything as soon as you arrive. Table tennis, CD,s, snooker, and various books and games meant plenty do do. Car parking in a nearby car park was not a problem. Pubs and shop very local. A brilliant time had by us all.

“Beautiful House with Beautiful Views”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2013

I stayed at Rock House with my husband and our two children, aged 3 and 11 months. The house is beautifully decorated and nearly every window has a fantastic view. The house is brilliantly equipped and has everything you could possibly need. We spent a very relaxing week on the beaches, at the rock pools and eating ice cream! We will definitely be returning next year.

“The property was as good as the description suggests - if not better !”

Reviewed 10 Mar 2013

My wife and I and my sister-in-law had a wonderful few days at Rock House. The accomodation was perfect - very comfortable - all mod cons - and beautifully clean ! To wake up and have breakfast with that stunning view was amazing. Even the weather was perfect, so having the quiet beach only a few strides away put "the icing on the cake" ! When not sitting on the beach, we managed some picturesque walks nearby and in the evening we ate at a couple of local, very welcoming, pub/restaurants - and the food was good too ! Final comment - "worth every penny - we will return !! "

“Perfect Cornwall getaway”

Reviewed 8 Feb 2013

I cannot rate this property highly enough, from the perfect location to the apartment itself. The sea views are incredible, the apartment has everything you need for the perfect holiday. The manager is extremely friendly and helpful and is on hand to resolve any problems. Kingsand is an unspoilt fishing village with very welcoming locals. There are plenty of places to eat, all within easy walking distance. There is no parking at the property, but don't let that put you off. The nearby car park is very near by, it is secure with the owner living onsite. If you are looking for the perfect costal holiday look no further, my husband and I look forward to returning next year.

“A home by the sea”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2012

Clean, spacious tastefully decorated and a comfortable bed - what more could you want - a sea view perhaps .. yes, a sea view from every window! A well equipped kitchen, amazing oven that actually did was it was supposed to do, a Belling Classic, there was even a multi-bottle wine cooler! There's never a dull moment on Plymouth Sound and it was fascinating watching ferries, frigates sailing boats, catamarans etc all day long. The attention to detail at Rock House is worthy of praise and we loved it. Sunrise and sunset is rare to see from one place but here there were days when we saw both in glorious technicolour! In such a small village it was easy to get about on foot, there is a car park with friendly attendants where you can pay and park during your stay as there is no parking anywhere in the village. Walking from Rock House is picturesque and easy, you can walk along the beach or strolling over the hills or around the coast, it's on part of the South West Coastal path.

“Fabulous house, fabulous location!”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2012

The house is lovely with many original features, beautiful, huge sitting room with stunning views, well equipped kitchen also with stunning views- watch the sunrise from the side window, a real treat! The bedrooms are all beautifully finished and the beds are very, very comfortable Kingsand/ cawsand is real hidden gem with stunning houses, friendly locals, great beaches and a real vibrancy, with lots of children and dogs running around and lots of water activities. We will most definatley be returning next year! The Hutchinsons, Cheshire
