It would be hard to imagine a more atmospheric base on the south Cornwall coast than a holiday cottage in Cawsand. In the heart of this ancient community, a labyrinth of narrow streets lined with pastel-coloured cottages overlooks a sheltered harbour, where smugglers once hauled contraband liquor ashore. Some of Cornwall’s most beautiful countryside and coastline await discovery on self-catering holidays in Cawsand. The village is located on the stunning Rame Peninsula, which has become known as the Forgotten Corner of Cornwall. Below the village centre, a pretty sand and shingle beach is protected from the waves by towering cliffs, making it a glorious spot for swimming. As the tide falls, a network of rockpools is revealed, where crabs and starfish can be found. If you fancy exploring the calm waters of the Plymouth Sound, boats can be hired at the top of the beach.
My View is a large, detached Cornish holiday house with an indoor heated swimming pool offering luxury self-catering holidays in Cawsand. It sleeps 11 guests in 6 bedrooms (4 ensuite). This family friendly Cornwall holiday home overlooks Cawsand Beach with amazing sea views across Plymouth Sound.
There are three pubs: The Cross Keys Inn, The Devonport Inn and The Halfway House, all of which serve a good pint of local ale and a variety of hearty meals. A ferry runs between Cawsand and Plymouth, a fascinating city with a thriving food scene, range of shops and rich maritime heritage. Cawsand is twinned with the neighbouring village of Kingsand, and both lie within the historic Mount Edgcumbe Country Park, where 885 acres of gorgeous gardens, woods, follies and temples surround a magnificent Tudor house. Look out for wild fallow deer as you explore this magical place. Cawsand holiday cottages are perfectly located for exploring the spectacular scenery of south Cornwall and Devon. Nestled right on the border of the two counties, the village is a short drive from Looe, Seaton, Portwrinkle, Bovisand, Heybrook Bay, Challaborough and Bigbury-on-Sea. Inland, the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Dartmoor National Park are not to be missed.
