Torpoint, Cornwall

A relaxed house with stunning sea views for families or friends in the traditional seaside village of Cawsand on the Cornwall-Devon border


4 bedrooms


Sleeps 8


It’s quiet here in Cornwall’s ‘forgotten corner.’ There’s plenty of peace and space too in this unpretentious Georgian house: flop down on comfy sofas or perch on window seats in the first floor living room. Take in the views over Plymouth Sound while you chat, or gather cosily around the big kitchen table for sociable meals. The small back terrace has a dining area with a charcoal barbecue and, up steps, there’s a grassy area for lounging on sunny days.

The house is light and on three levels so it doesn’t feel too cramped and there’s a laundry room for stowing wet beach gear or muddy boots.

You get two villages, two bays and two beaches. Hire a kayak or dinghy from the beach, take a picnic and spend long days discovering hidden coves. The South West Coast Path runs through the village for walking and bird-watching, or hop onto the seasonal passenger ferry from Cawsand beach to Plymouth and explore the old part of the city.

The neighbourhood

The twin seaside villages of Cawsands and Kingsand, with their narrow winding narrow streets and quaint stone cottages, feel hardly changed since their heyday as smugglers’ havens in the 18th century. They’re on the scenic Rame Peninsula, which is tucked away and something of a hidden secret. The village is lived in year-round and has all you need: four very good pubs, two bakeries, a general store and a shop selling beach paraphernalia and ice-cream.

Local points of interest from Susie Warwick

  • Once the dividing county line between Devon and Cornwall, one almost feels in a time warp. Experience holidays of childhood - picnics on the beach, fishing and paddling in rock pools, barbecues in the garden, going to sleep to the sound of the ocean
  • Whitsand beach, with miles of golden sand, is just 3 miles away. Great for surfers (school in summer) or tuck yourselves into your own private corner. Here too is a great restaurant for fish-lovers, The View, which caters for meat and veggie eaters too.
  • Four great and ancient pubs with food to suit every taste, from French cuisine to traditional fish and chips. The local bakery has amazing fresh, and interestingly different, bread and scones every day. There are several takeaways nearby who deliver too.
  • In an area of Oustanding Natural Beauty, walking the miles of the 630 miles of southwest coast path is simply straight out of the front door. Oystercatchers, Spoonbills, Black-tailed Godwits and Avocets have been seen - or just enjoy spectacular scenery.
  • Locally known as The Red Pig, the passenger ferry takes visitors straight to the ancient Barbican area of Plymouth for a myriad of shops, Theatre Royal, the National Marine Aquarium or join a Deep Sea Fishing trip.
  • Places to visit include, National Trust houses Cothele, Antony and Lanhydrock. Mount Edgcumbe, Heligan, Eden Project great for children too, open-air Minack Theatre. Also the Monkey sanctuary at Looe or the Seal sanctuary at Gweek all within an easy drive.


Susie Warwick

Susie now lives in Hertfordshire, but was based in Devon for many years and greatly enjoys giving others the opportunity to experience something of real Cornish living. The cottage is looked after by housekeeper Toni, who will leave a key in a safelock so you can let yourself in; she’s extremely helpful and available at all times for emergencies.
