Up a narrow street, one row back from the sea, this powder blue Georgian house is just the backdrop for happy gatherings of friends or families. There might be a tussle for the cavernous main bedroom with its freestanding bath, but ultimately everyone will be happy in their own whiter-than-white retreat.
The twin fishing villages of Kingsand and Cawsand straggle around three beaches – dip in rock pools and try the two kayaks provided, then wander happily through traffic-free streets between pocket money shops and ice cream parlours.
Return for a barbecue in the child and dog-safe courtyard garden or congregate around a choice of dining tables. Sofas by the wood-burner beckon for after dinner drinks or a cosy movie.
