My only disappointment was in myself, that I didn't take my wetsuit !! The area is just perfect for safe open water swimming and I can't wait to return, to get in that water !! My first visit to Cawsand and I fell in love with it. If you are looking for charm, character, genuine local warmth and beautiful coast walks, look no further. The cottage is also full of charm and character and has everything you need to relax and recharge. The booking process was faultless and all directions and access arrangements were explained painlessly !! Thank you Susie and Toni for a wonderful few days. Sarah Leggatt.
