PRETTY, COSY.FULLY EQUIPPED STONE COTTAGE 2 MINUTES FROM BEACH. SLEEPS 2-5

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. Stable door opens into living room with oak floor. Dining table with seating for 4, 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 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.

Food deliveries can be arranged with Tesco.

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.

Great little cottage, really comfortable and close

  • Review Submitted: 01-Apr-2014

Had a wonderful stay in this very clean, cosy and tastefully decorated cottage. All mod cons but also lots of character and very comfortable beds..
Few metres from the beach in this pretty little coastal village. Good pubs short walk away.
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.

Authentic Cottage, Fabulous Location

  • Review Submitted: 01-Oct-2013
  • Date of Stay: Sep 2013
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

Good Value

  • Review Submitted: 01-Oct-2013
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2013
Howton Cottage is a lovely house, we had a wonderful stay last week.

It was myself and husband and another couple who stayed, and the great thing is that both bedrooms are big and spacious and of equal size which is usually quite rare in small cottages.

The kitchen is fantastic and we enjoyed cooking in for a few nights before snuggling around the fire in the lounge.

It was very homely. I would recommend this cottage to anyone visiting Cawsands - a group of friends, a family or even just a couple as it's good value

Long Weekend in Howton Cottage

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 12-Feb-2012
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2012
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.
