St Andrews Cottage is a large, luxury Cornish home comfortably sleeping 8-10 people just a few minutes walk from the beach . It is ideal for families or friends wanting a clean, bright place to enjoy all the pleasures on the Rame Peninsula. With glorious sea views enjoyed in its terraced gardens, to cosy nights in by the lounge log burner and its contemporary family friendly interior. But, perhaps its greatest asset is its fabulous setting tucked up a narrow coastal lane, just a short walk from one of the three beaches surrounding the pretty and unspoilt village of Cawsand on the Rame Peninsula.

Additional Location Information

Cawsand and Kingsand are adjoining villages, on the south side of the Cornish Coast, just over the Devon border. Originally a fishing village with a colourful history of smuggling and naval daring, it is unspoilt by time, with little traffic on the one-way through road.

In times past, the pilot cutter gigs would race to get their pilots aboard the ships first so as to receive the custom from the ships and carry their cargoes ashore, sometimes illegally. Local tales have it that there are various coastal tunnels in the village which were used by smugglers. There is still a taste of this way of life with the active gig club in the village, with the gigs Spirit of Rame, Minnadhu and Penlee Point all regularly taking to the water. Admiral Nelson would come ashore here and the Emperor Napoleon was briefly at anchor in Cawsand Bay, en route to exile in St Helena.

We are in a conservation area of outstanding natural beauty, with a range of coastal and countryside walks, ranging from a stroll to a local pub to challenging treks for the more adventurous. The bay is popular with sailing boats and pleasure boats, being protected from the harsher elements by the natural coastline. Cawsand Beach is only a couple of minutes walk away from the cottage, with a sandy beach, rock pools and safe designated swimming area. Kayaking and diving or snorkelling are also popular and so is sea angling, with a good variety of fish being caught from the rocks or further out on boats. Golf and horse riding are within easy reach.

The historic village of St. Germans is well worth a visit and so is the nearby Anthony House and gardens, where the recent Tim Burton film Alice in Wonderland was filmed.

There are many local walks you can head left out of the village towards Whitsand Bay, or along Penlee Point towards Rame Head or through Kingsand along the pathways by the beach and woodland down to Mount Edgcumbe House where there is a good pub which serves food - The Edgcumbe Arms and the Cremyll ferry over to Plymouth. A book is provided giving more details of the local walks. Further afield is Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor.

There are two golf courses near by one at Whitsand Bay and further away St Mellion.

Whitsand Bay Golf Course is an 18 hole cliff top golf course with wonderful views. The Whitsand Bay Golf Course was laid in 1905 and offers a testing round for low and high handicap players. Set between Crafthole and the sea at Portwrinkle the course has dramatic panoramic coastal views. The course was laid by Willie Fernie of Troon in 1905 and Max Faulkner holds the course record of 62 set in 1947. However the design of the course is for the holiday golfer as well as the serious club golfer. Challenging holes mingle with straightforward holes with dramatic views.

St. Mellion is for the more serious golfer, with the Jack Nicklaus Signature and Kernow Golf Courses rated in the top four of Today’s Golfer best courses list. The Nicklaus course hosted the Benson & Hedges International Open for 6 years from 1990 until 1995. It is located in the Tamar Valley and bears the hallmarks of a designer who pays attention to detail

The Eden project is about 45 minutes drive away and it boasts the world's largest rainforest in captivity, stunning gardens and world-class sculptures as well a number of music events and activities.
