Luxury house in beautiful Cornish village

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing house, right on the small high street. So close to pubs, a great cafe, beach, but feels like you are tucked away when in a great spacious house. Deco all modern and homely, and the log burning fire a great addition on a blustery cold weekend. Would improve nothing, only to say that I hope that we can book it again. Mike

A gem

  • 5 of 5

A most relaxing week with friends & family from Switzerland. Excellent place with all the comforts one could wish for! The welcoming touches and the homely feel were exceptional. It really does feel like home from home.

We all thought that the Rame peninsula and Kingsand/Cawsand in particular is a rather special place. We enjoyed our visit immensely!

Blue Monkey Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place for a Cornish holiday, Facilities are first class and Beaches and places to eat are close by. Its not somewhere where you can park your car on the premises but there is an excellent car park at reasonable prices for the week within 25 metres of the property.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely family house, sparkling clean with soft white towels in the bedrooms. We had five adults, one toddler and 3 dogs staying and had plenty of space. Fresh flowers in all the rooms and a bottle of wine and scones on arrival was a lovely touch. The large family kitchen is very well equipped.

Excellent location, being within short walking distance of the car park and also the pubs. Lovely costal walk nearby.

Location

From the Owner

The "Forgotten corner of Cornwall" is a truly remarkable place - steeped in beauty, romance and ideal for a child friendly holiday, where due to the safety of the quiet streets and clean beaches on your doorstep everyone can have a chance to unwind. The walks along the coastal path are breath taking and the micro-climate of Cawsand Bay never fails to offer some of the best weather in the South West.

Activity and Interests

Car: necessary

Coast/Beach:

There are three main beaches in the villages of Kingsand & Cawsand. All beaches are safe for swimming.

Kingsand Beach is a mixture of sand & shingle.

Cawsand Beach is mainly sand with all the usual facilities at the back of the beach. There are rock pools & inlets for children to play in its sheltered location & makes Cawsand a popular family beach

Whitsand Bay: A short trip to the other side of the Rame Peninsula will take you to a 7km stretch of perfect sand

Travel:

Located in the SE of Cornwall.

Blue Monkey is 4 hours from London and less than 2 hours from Bristol.

Distances:

Situated in the heart of the village 30 seconds from the waters edge. You are in the perfect place for exploring a section of one of Britains most beloved National Trails the "South West Coast Path". If you follow it around the coastline, it takes you past Penlee Point & Rame Head, with its 11th century monks' chapel & stunning views to the glorious 4 mile stretch of sand & surf at Whitsand Bay. The View restaurant overlooking Whitsand Bay makes an ideal refreshment stop.Mt Edgcumbe House.

Further Details:

In the village are 5 pubs, a post office, cash point, village shop, 2 galleries and 2 further present shops
