Why we love it here...

Tucked away on the Cornish coast with magnificent views

Why we love it here? What’s not to love? Known as Cornwall’s forgotten corner, Kingsand is situated on the dramatic Rame Peninsula – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With its warm, welcoming feel and beautiful beach side location, you’ll never want to leave.

Until boundary changes in 1844 Kingsand was originally in Devon; Cawsand, however, was always in Cornwall. On the old county boundary between the two villages there is a cottage, near the Halfway House, called ‘Devon Corn’,  which still has the boundary marker to be seen on the front. The villages are popular with tourists but retain their traditional character.

Sheltered by a wooded headland; pebble-and-sand beaches, family pubs, cafés, and a some lovely shops. Literally 30 seconds from Walney’s front door is Shipshape – with a selection of lovely gifts and souvenirs it also houses the village post office, Panache a couple of paces further displays glorious ceramics and local artist creations and up the road is Periwinkle a gift shop with many beautiful things to tempt you. The village shop is next which is very handy and always seems to have just about everything you might need. In addition to exploring the shops, sampling local fresh fish dishes and unusual ales, Kingsand even has its own art gallery, Westcroft on the doorstep. Well worth popping into for a slice of culture and inspiration.

Compact but equipped with everything you require Kingsand and Cawsand are picture-postcard perfect villages – places that remain in the heart of all who visit. Please feel free to contact Kate Queally or online – Click here to check availability at Walney Cottage.

Why Kingsand?

Kingsand, with its neighbour Cawsand, are twin villages in South East Cornwall and really are worth a visit. With a spectacular coastline, stunning  scenery, great walks, wonderful places to eat and the beautiful sea to enjoy, it is the perfect getaway.

There are many popular places to visit with a wide variety of pubs. Walney has The Devonport Inn and the Halfway House within a minute’s walk and there are more within a very short stroll.  You are spoilt for choice! In addition Kingsand and Cawsand have some fantastic cafes. The Rame Peninsula also boasts a number of quality shops and galleries. A seasonal passenger ferry runs from Cawsand to Plymouth Barbican, a lovely walk through Mount Edgecumbe country park will take you to the Cremyll ferry which runs all year round taking passengers to near the Royal William Yard with its lively bars and popular restaurants.

We both fell in love with the village when we moved to the area 20 years ago. So much so we married at the stunning Polhawn Fort just on the other side of Rame Head. We have enjoyed walking here with our four children as they are growing up and the dog of course! Now we are lucky enough to have our own home in this wonderful place – a dream come true! We regularly swim – all year round – with friends and family and it is somewhere that we all enjoy. My husband spends hours spotting boats out of the windows and I love visiting the art galleries or just people watching in the local pubs. Whether it is a wild stormy day or a brilliant sunny one it really is a magical place to be and one we love and are sure you will too.

I look forward to welcoming you to our little hidden hideaway by the sea soon.
