Why Annabel Herbert chose South East Cornwall

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.

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.
