                                      Howton Cottage is a perfect gem in Cawsand. Beautifully equipped with every possible convenience, comfy beds, soft towels, beautiful kitchen and bathroom. Cawsand is so peaceful and we all slept so well in the cottage. The cream tea with home baked scones was a very welcome touch on arrival. Would highly recommend the food at both Halfway House Inn and the Devonport Arms and brunch at the Old Bakery which is about 100 yards from the cottage. Also, all of these establishments welcome dogs, which is wonderful. Highly recommended.

                                      Beach Way the Best Stay

                                      5 of 5
                                      We have stayed in Cawsands several times and without doubt Beach Way has provided the best location and best facilities for us yet. Penny and Richard were very welcoming and unobtrusive but at pains to let us know they were there for us if we needed them. The apartment was roomy and spacious enough for all four adults. As far as facilities were concerned, we wanted for nothing. I am gluten and dairy intolerant so we require to prepare and cook most if not all of our food when we are away. Everything we needed in the kitchen was at hand. It was superb. Plenty of recreational facilities. TV, Radio, books games, information leaflets. Beach no more than 50 meters away. We love Cawsand and would certainly not look any further than Beach Way for future visits. Excellent value for money and we would recommend booking it without hesitation to anyone

                                      Great spot, never got in the car again.

                                      What a find. Quaint and quirky on 3 levels, this place was perfect for our family. Our 16 yr old son had his own bedroom and toilet and access with a floor dividing us. Surprising amounts of space and really nicely done out. Pubs, shops, cafes and walks, everything on our doorstep.
