It’s quiet here in Cornwall’s ‘forgotten corner.’ There’s plenty of peace and space too in this unpretentious Georgian house: flop down on comfy sofas or perch on window seats in the first floor living room. Take in the views over Plymouth Sound while you chat, or gather cosily around the big kitchen table for sociable meals. The small back terrace has a dining area with a charcoal barbecue and, up steps, there’s a grassy area for lounging on sunny days.
The house is light and on three levels so it doesn’t feel too cramped and there’s a laundry room for stowing wet beach gear or muddy boots.
You get two villages, two bays and two beaches. Hire a kayak or dinghy from the beach, take a picnic and spend long days discovering hidden coves. The South West Coast Path runs through the village for walking and bird-watching, or hop onto the seasonal passenger ferry from Cawsand beach to Plymouth and explore the old part of the city.
