Jackdaw Cottage - Kingsand, Torpoint, South Cornwall, England - Sleeps 8

Jackdaw Cottage

Whether you are travelling by car or public transport, Jackdaw Cottage is exceptionally well placed for a holiday by the sea with friends or family (and also couples who like a little extra space around them!). Sleeping up to eight guests (plus baby) in four bedrooms, this homely cottage is a welcoming retreat at any time of the year with private patio for alfresco dining in the summer and open fire to warm yourself up in front of during the winter.

With a choice of pubs (there are four pubs in Kingsand and adjoining Cawsand), beach and shops just a pebble's throw away, this is an ideal coastal retreat to simply relax and unwind by the sea. It is also perfect for visiting the areas many attractions including: the Lost Gardens of Heligan; Anthony House (National Trust - the filmset for Alice in Wonderland); the world famous Eden Project; Plymouth's National Marine Aquarium; the spectacular South Hams area (including Salcombe and Dartmouth) and the seaside resorts of Looe and Polperro, along with the harbour town of Fowey with its stunning estuary walks teeming with wildlife.

Ideally placed in the Cornish fishing village of Kingsand, Jackdaw Cottage sits on the Rame Peninsula, one of Cornwall's hidden treasures offering stunning scenery. For those who enjoy walking, the village provides direct access to the South West Coastal Path with miles of stunning seascape to explore. Take the path to near by Whitsand Bay where you can enjoy its vast three mile stretch of golden sand (you're sure to be able to find a quiet spot to lay down your towel and enjoy a picnic!). Alternatively, head to the bright lights of Plymouth and take the ferry from the village which operates during the summer months.

The choices are endless whether you want to simply relax by the sea, explore the coastal path or discover the areas many attractions.
