Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Cawsand - HOWTON COTTAGE

A hidden gem of a village in Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on Coastal Path

Traditional, terraced cottage in the centre of Cawsand on the South West Coast Path and just 2 minutes walk from three beaches and close to several traditional pub/restaurants, shops and post office.

White-washed walls, characterful beams, newly renovated and well modernised with everything you might need for a self-catering holiday.

Stable door opens into living room with oak floor. Sitting/Dining room has TV with Freeview and DVD player. We also provide wireless Internet access free of charge.

Downstairs too a separate WC and full kitchen - 2 ovens, microwave, dishwasher and washer dryer as well as all the equipment you might think of including a food processor.

Stairs up to first floor Queen Size double bedroom and bathroom with roll top Victorian bath and separate, walk-in shower.

Up again to second floor the pretty double bedroom in the eaves has just a glimpse of the sea and we can set it up with a single bed if needed. A travel cot and highchair are available in addition at no extra cost.

A really comfortable self-catering cottage with full central heating (not night storage) all within walking distance of beaches and several good pubs with excellent food.

100% cotton linen, towels, electricity and wireless broadband internet access are included.

You can arrange food deliveries with Waitrose or Tesco.

Although we have no carparking or outside space, there is a carpark within 75 yards and you may park right at the front door to unload.

The Rame Peninsula: Cawsand/Kingsand are situated on the Rame Peninsula which is also known as Cornwall's forgotten corner - and long may it be so! A village with many ancient and true stories of smugglers and shipwrecks, the pretty colour-washed cottages and narrow streets of these ancient villages have a magical feeling. Once the dividing county line between Devon and Cornwall, one almost feels in a time warp.

Here are the holidays of a British childhood - picnics on the beach, fishing and paddling and crabbing in rock pools.. Spectacular scenery, walking, birdwatching, painting, fishing or just lazing it is the perfect place for the traditional family holiday.

An historically rich area too: King Charles and Lord Nelson both came to the village. You will notice Palmerston's Follies (military forts) built in the 18th century to keep the French at bay and the 14th-century chapel at Rame Head where a beacon blazed at the time of the Armada.

Things to Do:

There are several dates when it is special to be in the village:

1 May - May Day - dating back to the 19 Century, the village is bedecked with flowers and the flower-covered Black Prince (boat) is carried through the village eventually being cast into the sea. There are children's flower garland competitions and a great community spirit celebrating the arrival of Spring.

Mid August is the time for the British Fireworks Championships which take place in Plymouth and easily visible from the village. An amazing sight, not to be missed.

31 December - New Year's Eve is a special time in Cawsand when all the villagers don fancy dress and go promenading around the pubs. There are fireworks on the beach, a disco at the hotel and a fancy dress swim for Charity on New Year’s Day ! The sea temperature is usually several degrees warmer than the air - promise!

The twin villages of Cawsand and Kingsand are a convenient base for visiting many of Cornwall's tourist attractions. 'Google' the following for more information:

The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Eden Project, newly opened Pentillie Castle, Minack Theatre and many National Trust properties: Cothele, Lanhydrock and Antony House are just a few.

The South West Coast Path is a dream for walkers taking in the whole of the coast of Cornwall and beyond so don't forget your walking boots and binoculars. Visit the beautiful Grade I Listed gardens of the 800-acre Mount Edgcumbe Estate just 10 minutes walk from the house, particularly lovely in Spring.

Birdwatching and sea fishing are popular too and Golf is at Whitsand Bay Country Club (wonderful views) Looe and 2 courses at St Mellion (Niklaus). Surfing nearby too (see below).

The ferry from the village takes you straight into the ancient Barbican area from where the Pilgrims left, here also theatre, shops and National Marine Aquarium

Secluded Coves and Surfing: Whitsand Bay beach is an enormous stretch of sand nearly 7 kilometres long, which separates up into little secluded coves at the top of the tide, including Tregantle, Sharrow, Freathy and Tregonhawke beaches.

This is a great beach for finding your own bit of privacy if you are a couple or family.

In the summer months. a Surf School runs from Tregonhawke, for all levels.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at Howton Cottage August bank holiday week and were really surprised at the space we had. the pictures do not do the property justice!



We travelled with a 12 yr old, 11 yr old & 2 yr old. The children were very comfortable in the room at the top of the house. The weather was impressively warm and the cottage was well equipped with fans to cool the room down & the children slept very well.

On the first floor was the next double room & bathroom. Again lovely space, comfy room and lovely views down to the street, perfect for people watching. I would disagree about the uncomfortable beds, we had no complaints.

The bathroom had a great bath & walk in shower & despite there being five of us we never ran out of water.

The ground floor offers a cosy living room with freeview tv, toilet & very well equipped kitchen. We cooked various dishes for 4 of the 7 nights and had every utensil needed.



Tumble drier very useful for drying the beach towels & dishwasher a must for 5 of us :o)



Susie left a tea, coffee, pint of milk & cake for us which was a really lovely touch.



We thoroughly enjoyed our break

Cosy cottage

  • 4 out of 5
We had a relaxing time in and around Cawsand. The cottage was very comfortable and has a well equipped kitchen - but there are plenty of good places to eat. The first flight of stairs are a little steep, in case that's an issue, but you'd expect that in a characterful fisherman's cottage.

Owner's Response: Cawsand is certainly a relaxing place to be at this time of year, especially. So good to be part of a living Cornish village! Howton Cottage is warm and cosy too.

Im Herz eines gemütlichen Fischerdorfes

  • 5 out of 5
Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Woche in einem sehr gemütlichen Cottage in direkter Nähe des Dorfstrandes/kleinen Segelhafens. Die Kinder (7 und 9 J) mussten nur das Strässchen runterrennen und waren am spannenden Strand, der durch die Gezeiten immer was zu bieten/klettern hatte. Das Dorf ist niedlich, mit urigen Pubs und kleinen Cafes. Es gibt reichlich Ausflugsmöglichkeiten oder man läuft ein Stück auf dem Coast Path. Wir würden es immer weiterempfehlen, da wir zudem perfektes Wetter hatten.

Owner's Response: Although I don't speak any German, I can understand that this family had a great holiday with great weather too. Howton Cottage is a perfect spot in a little-known part of Cornwall which often catches better weather than further south or the north coast. The cottage is a stone's throw from the beach and from there you can catch a foot-passenger ferry directly into Plymouth's ancient Barbican area.
We look forward to having you at Howton Cottage very soon.

Owner's Response: This little gem of a cottage is situated within a stones throw from the beach in a friendly little village with lots of eating-out places with plenty to occupy the children come rain or shine. If you prefer self-catering the kitchen is fully equipped for that. The beds and bed linen are top quality. This is a special cottage in a special place and whee better than Cornwall for an English summer holiday?

Beautiful, comfortable sea side cottage.

  • 5 out of 5
The cottage is the best place to stay for a couple of days or a full weeks holiday. Suitable for families, friends and for couples.
Howton is clean, comfortable and has everything that you will need for your stay. On arrival we were treated to fresh scones, local jam and clotted cream, just what we needed and they were delicious. Susie also left us milk, bread and butter to keep us going.
Beds were big and comfy, wifi was great.
All the pubs and both coffee shops served great food and drink and everyone was very friendly and dog friendly.
Lovely beach, walks,boat trips and great for people watching.
All in all a great village and cottage to stay in.
We will be returning for our third time.

Owner's Response: Always a pleasure when guests take time to review our little place in paradise. We have spent a great deal of time this winter updating everything, beds, kitchen and furniture generally. So glad that Howton Cottage is appreciated for what it is - close to beaches, walks and with great places to eat and drink.
We look forward to your return !

Owner's Response: It's always a thrill and an honour when guests take the time to write a review - thank you!

We have just renovated Howton Cottage top to bottom with new equipment in the kitchen, new beds and redecorated.

It's a small but perfect gem I'm one of the prettiest villages in Cornwall just a pebbles throw from the beach, right on the southwest coastal path and the many attractions Cornwall has to offer. Truly perfect for a family holiday or a romantic getaway.

We look forward to welcoming you again very soon.

Long Weekend in Howton Cottage

  • 5 out of 5
Our weekend was lovely. Howton Cottage was a joy to stay in with bright happy interior. Good quality and up to date finish. The cottage was full of character and served as a perfect bolt hole. The wireless internet was easy to set for both blackberry, iPhone and ipad. The walks were super and food at Halfway House pub was excellent. The Cross Keys had entertaining live Music and people. Whilst the Davenport Arms was friendly and had nice wines. The walks were superb to Mount Edgecombe. Howton cottage provided a warm safe haven in the winter months with its lovely ambience. Would go again...

Owner's Response: You certainly can't want for eateries in Cawsand, all within a 2-5 minute walk of Howton Cottage. A fully equipped kitchen ensures that you can enjoy eating in too!
Our wonderful caretaker, Toni, is on hand for any problems and makes sure there is always a warm and cosy welcome at Howton Cottage.

The twin ancient fishing villages of Kingsand and Cawsand are two of the best in Cornwall. Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the South West Coastal Path and overlooking Plymouth Sound. Here are three rock and sand beaches, traditional, old beamed family pubs with Real Ale and village shops. Kayaks, sailing boats and windsurf boards for hire in Cawsand. Flower-boat ceremony on May Day. Whitsand Bay with 7-mile sandy beach is a surfers paradise. The Grade I listed 800 acres of the gardens of Mount Edgcumbe Park are within a few minutes walk. From Cawsand a passenger Ferry takes you into Plymouth city Mayflower Steps (from where the Plymouth Fathers left) Here you will find theatre, cinema, the ancient Barbican area and the National Marine Aquarium. Visit National Trust properties and gardens - Antony House and Lanhydrock. Also Lost Gardens of Heligan, Eden Project and Minack Theatre are a short trip away. Golfing at Whitsand and St Mellion just 10-30 minutes away.

This is a children's paradise, safe to wander around the narrow streets to fetch an ice-cream or pop down to the beach for a spot of crabbing in the rock pools.

Sitting right on the South West Coastal path you can walk to your heart's content.

Perfect for families and couples alike.

Sorry no dogs.

Other Activities: PLYMOUTH

Golf: at Whitsand Bay about 4 miles away from where there are fantastic views.

The famous courses at St Mellion are less than half an hour away too.
