    The cottage was very quaint and lovely. The views over the bay from top and second bedrooms were spectacular as the picture shows. The photos were exact. But.. The twin room beds were not comfortable. The mattresses not suitable for adults. No wardrobes and most of the drawers were full up with magazines. The kitchen was well equipped except for the lack of good frying pans. Only one that stuck and a wok. The kitchen window overlooked what I can only describe as a disgusting small back yard Filthy. Also there is no mention in your discribtion of there being a right of way right past the back or should I say side door and across the kitchen window. Very disappointed. Regards Lynda Clark (Mrs).

The property

The perfect seaside cottage, imagine fishing boats bobbing by, ice cream coloured cottages and you have imagined the unspoilt village of Cawsand/Kingsand.

Samphire is nestled right in the middle with far reaching views across the bay, ideal for those who love to be close to the sea.

The open plan living accommodation on the ground floor, is warmed by the glow of the wood burning stove.

To the rear there is a pretty galley style kitchen.

On the first floor is a spacious twin bedroom enjoying fine sea views, as well as a shower room with WC.

Walking through the shower room will bring you to a single bedroom and so this property can offer flexible sleeping arrangements for four guests.

On the second floor is the wonderfully light and bright master bedroom with glorious dual aspect sea views - even a bathtub with a view!

There is also a separate WC on this level.

The village itself is in the heart of an area of natural outstanding beauty.

There is a small back yard at the property which neighboring house has pedestrian access through the yard to their property.

The coastal path runs through the village, taking you to secret coves and stunning scenery, including the 800 acre Mount Edgcumbe Country Park, with its restored mansion and Grade 1 listed gardens and the rugged Rame Head Peninsula.

Whitsand Bay is just a 10 minute drive, with its dramatic scenery and long stretches of sandy beaches.

There is a ferry service in the summer from Cawsand beach to Plymouth Hoe where you will find Smeaton's Tower, open to the public all year round and offering a wonderful vantage point from its lantern room.

With lots to do at any time of year, you will definitely want to come back.

About the location


Plymouth 24 miles.

The twin villages of Kingsand and Cawsand, with narrow streets winding between pastel-coloured cottages, lie on the Rame Peninsula just 5 miles from Plymouth, but because the high ground of Mount Edgcumbe lies between, you are not aware of being near a large city. Instead, you can relax in the peace and quiet of village life, and look out over Plymouth Sound which offers calm waters ideal for watersports, fishing and bathing. Take a walk south along the coastal path to Penlee Point for the glorious views of Rame Head, towering above the sea, or, a walk north along the coast will take you to Mount Edgcumbe Park with fabulous views of Plymouth Sound. From Cawsand, take a ferry trip to Plymouth and visit the Aquarium, the historic Barbican or enjoy a spot of retail therapy. Just a mile west of Kingsand lies Whitsand Bay, with 4 miles of sandy beach and dramatic cliffs. You really are spoilt for choice in this ‘secret hideaway’.
