In a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this lovely old house has been renovated to a high standard very comfortably accommodating 8 people and just a pebble's throw from the water. Seacroft has fabulous ocean views from almost every room. The moment you arrive you can smell the ozone and see the waves. Tastefully decorated and well furnished throughout with high end bathroom and kitchen fittings, returning guests insist Seacroft is the best holiday home they have stayed in.
Sitting in the centre of this romantic Cornish fishing village, right on the SW Coast Path, with two beaches just a 3 minute walk away - everything is here for a self-catering, family holiday. The well-equipped kitchen has all you may need - fridge/freezer, full oven, microwave and dishwasher. The separate laundry room has washing machine, separate tumble drier and plenty of room to dry out coats and walking boots. The kitchen opens into the southwest facing garden. A sunny patio with barbecue provides alfresco dining in comfort - there is also plenty of room to play or laze in the safely enclosed private garden.
Inside, the plasma TV, DVD, board games and books will give you plenty of choices on the occasional rainy day. With cosy cream sofas to relax in. And at the end of the day have a restful sleep wrapped in 100% luxury cotton in super-comfortable beds with a choice of pillows. The four bedrooms are: on the ground floor, two bedrooms and on the second floor a further two. The bedrooms are divided as to one 5' double, one twin and two bedrooms which can be either 6' doubles or two 3' twin beds. Each of the ground and second floors has a bathroom with underfloor heating and both bath and shower. The living room and kitchen sit on the first floor with two great sea-watching window seats.
Cawsand/Kingsand are situated on the Rame Peninsula, also known as Cornwall's forgotten corner. With many ancient and true stories of smugglers and shipwrecks, the pretty colour-washed cottages and narrow streets of these delightful villages have a magical feeling. Once the dividing county line between Devon and Cornwall, one almost feels in a time warp. Here are the 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. There are 6 different places to eat within 3-10 minutes walk and a passenger ferry to Plymouth (2.5 sea miles) theatre, cinema, shops and National Marine Aquarium - no real need for a car. Spectacular scenery, walking, birdwatching, painting, fishing or just lazing - it is the perfect place for the traditional family holiday. An historically rich area too: King Charles and Lord Nelson both came to the village. You will notice Palmerston's Follies (military forts) built in the 18th century to keep the French at bay and the 14th-century chapel at Rame Head where a beacon blazed at the time of the Armada.
The twin villages of Cawsand and Kingsand are also a convenient base for visiting many of Cornwall's tourist attractions. Take a look at our website - Things to Do - at www.cawsandcottages.co.uk, for more information: The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Eden Project, the amazing open-air Minack Theatre and many National Trust properties: Cothele, Lanhydrock and Antony House are just a few.
630-miles of the South West Coast Path is a dream for walkers, taking in the whole of the coast of Cornwall and beyond so don't forget your walking boots.
Visit the beautiful, Grade 1 Listed gardens of the 800-acre Mount Edgcumbe Estate, just 10 minutes walk from the house. Beautiful all year but especially lovely in Spring. Here there is a good restaurant/cafe to refresh yourselves for the home run.
Birdwatching- look out for Spoonbills, Black-tailed Godwits, Avocets and Oystercatchers which have all been seen.
Sea fishing is popular too as is Golf at Whitsand Bay Country Club (wonderful views), Looe and 2 courses at St Mellion (one of which is a Niklaus course).
Anyone from the U.S might be especially interested in Plymouth. The ferry from the village takes you straight into the old Barbican area from where the Pilgrims left, Here also the Theatre Royal, shops and National Marine Aquarium.
Tucked away Coves: For a change you might try nearby Whitsand Bay beach - an enormous stretch of sand nearly 7 kilometres long, which separates up into little secluded coves at the top of the tide, including Tregantle, Sharrow, Freathy and Tregonhawke beaches. Great for finding your own bit of privacy if you are a couple or family.
RECENT REVIEW: Great House with fantastic views ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Left on Nov 1, 2016 for a stay in Oct 2016 We stayed at Seacroft during October half term 7 guests age range 6 to 92. The house has everything you need for a relaxing comfortable stay very well furnished & beautifully decorated & the underfloor heating was a real hit. The kitchen was very well equipped making it a real home from home. The sea views from the first floor lounge & 2nd floor bedroom windows are fantastic the old & young enjoyed spotting the boats & submarines passing by on the way to Plymouth. Cawsand & Kingsand are quaint seaside villages within 5 minutes of each other with four pubs & a coffee shop between them. Seacroft is centrally located with easy access to Cawsand & Kingsand beaches & the south west coastal path.

If you are looking for character, comfort and quality, this is the cottage to choose. It’s location is perfect. We enjoyed sea views from all floors. The rooms were all of a good size, considering we were a family of 8, we never felt on top of each other! The quality of the interior was high, and everything was catered for. The locals were really friendly, and in between walks, we enjoyed the atmosphere in the local pubs, especially The Rising Sun “The Riser”. We stayed over the Christmas period, which included catering for 8. The cottage accommodated our needs perfectly, enabling us to celebrate, relax and enjoy our time together. We arranged food deliveries for essentials, and would definitely advise others to do this as the local shops are limited. Would definitely recommend Seacroft! Perfect.
Sea views are stunning!

We had a very enjoyable and relaxing week in your lovely house. The sea views were stunning, the kitchen was well equipped and a pleasure to work in and everywhere was decorated to a very high standard. I particularly enjoyed the lovely crisp cotton bedding. We loved Cawsand and surrounding countryside and were able to enjoy many walks. Thank you for the opportunity to spend a week in Seacroft.
Very comfortable for the whole family

We had a most enjoyable family holiday thank you and that is in no small part down to your lovely home; great location, wonderful views, very comfortable and well proportioned for large families to eat and spend time together and thoughtfully kitted out too (brollies very useful last night as we walked to the Halfway for an excellent meal). Seacroft is one of many large houses we have rented in Kingsand/Cawsand since 2006 and so I know of what I speak!
Excellent position, well appointed

We had a lovely week at Seacroft. The children loved the sea views & the close proximity to the shingle beach & sea. The house had everything you could need to make the stay as good as possible. We loved it
So glad you all had a great holiday. Seacroft is a gem in a little-known Cornish corner. See you again next year!
