Why Rachael Sartorius chose South East Cornwall

This is a large comfortable property, near the sea. It is ideal for family holidays with beautiful walks nearby. The Cornish coastline in stunning and there are many pleasant pubs nearby too. Unusually too it has a sunny courtyard perfect for pre-dinner drinks on summer evenings.

What makes this cottage unique

The sea is just a stroll away, as are pubs. A local shop is conveniently located 100 yards away.

jackdaw cottage

  • 4 of 5

During our recent visit to the Rame peninsular,which is ideal for coastal walks,we stayed at Jackdaw Cottage in Kingsand.The cottage has a small private enclosed patio/terrace and is a homely place to stay,with it`s open fire in the spacious lounge,and is ideal for couples or families.This clean,comfortable three storey house is very convenient for the sea and is a short walk to any of the four pubs in the area,The Cross Keys being the best for food,in our opinion.We had a very enjoyable stay here,and will certainly return to this totally unspoilt part of Cornwall,and stay at Jackdaw Cottage again.

Character town house in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our 2 week stay. The house was 50 yds from the very good local shop and the same to a number of pubs and on to the beach. Lovely sitting room.

The house does need some love and attention though - particularly the uncomfortable beds. A decent sized freezer to cope with catering for 8 or 9 people is a must - and icebox doesn't cut it really.

Lovely seaside cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful brief stay at Jackdaw cottage. It's a very clean, simple but spacious cottage in a quaint seaside village. The beds were a bit hard but overall found it delightful. Its about an hour or so from the southern tip of Cornwall but we were able to see all of Cornwall just fine. Highly recommend this rental. Our car and phone GPS's had a difficult time finding the address (do not let it default to Torpoint) but the rental is picturesque and exactly what we were hoping it would be.

Lovely cottage in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this cottage which was roomy and very comfortable. It has a lovely lounge with open fire and is in a great location in the heart of Kingsand. The beach, pub, local shop are all just a short walk away. Would definitely recommend!

Felt so at home at Jackdaw Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully clean, larger than imagined, a home from home, minutes from the beach and roof top sea views from the upper landing window and master bedroom. Would recommend but only reluctantly as it is our new secret holiday cottage. Welcome most warm from home owner. Weather inclement meant good excuse to relax in front of log fire in light airy sitting room. Boys loved rock pool fishing. Coastal path a stones throw. Drinks in the Devonport pub or leaning against railings just outside with glass in hand overlooking the sea was dreamy. We went to a party in Plymouth and then trundled happily back, same night. Kingsand is gem and we have going there for years.
