Samphire is a lovely cottage with a super seaview in the village of Kingsand, which is set on the Rame Peninsular, just the other side of Plymouth. On the first floor is a spacious twin bedroom enjoying fine sea views, as well as a shower room with WC. Walking through the shower room will bring you to a single bedroom and so this property can offer flexible sleeping arrangements for four guests. On the second floor is the wonderfully light and bright master bedroom with glorious dual aspect sea views - even a bathtub with a view! The open plan living accommodation on the ground floor, is warmed by the glow of a wood burning stove. To the rear there is pretty galley style kitchen. The sea is on your doorstep and within a few steps are some local shops, Inns and eateries. This is a perfect spot for those who don't wish to go anywhere else although there is always room for exploring.
Over three floors: Three bedrooms; 1 x second floor double with bath, 1 x first floor twin, 1 x first floor single. First floor shower and loo. Second floor loo. Ground floor kitchen. Sitting room with dining area and wood burner.
The twin villages of Kingsand and Cawsand, with narrow streets winding between pastel-coloured cottages, lie on the Rame Peninsula just 5 miles from Plymouth, but because the high ground of Mount Edgcumbe lies between, you are not aware of being near a large city. Instead, you can relax in the peace and quiet of village life, and look out over Plymouth Sound which offers calm waters ideal for watersports, fishing and bathing. Take a walk south along the coastal path to Penlee Point for the glorious views of Rame Head, towering above the sea, or, a walk north along the coast will take you to Mount Edgcumbe Park with fabulous views of Plymouth Sound.
Cornwall is a region full of history, culture and unique identity. So unique in fact that Cornwall has its very own language (Kernowek), flag (St Piran's Banner) and national anthem (Trelawney). In 2014 the UK government officially recognised the fine people of Cornwall as a national minority group, meaning that Cornish heritage and traditions now join the Irish, Scottish and Welsh as a protected Celtic group.
Cornwall is proudly known as the stunning setting of the popular BBC television series 'Poldark', starring Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson. Cornwall is also proud of its famous Cornish Pasty, but has another pastry dish to offer you, the Stargazy Pie! If you don't mind a few pilchards looking at you whilst you eat, then the Stargazy Pie is the pie for you. After a pasty or a pie, or both, you might fancy a pint and Cornwall has a great choice of locally produced beers to satisfy your thirst. Try an ale from the St Austell Brewery, Skinner's Brewery or the Rebel Brewing Company to name but a few of the fine ale producers in the region. Please remember to always drink responsibly.
Here are just a couple of the great Cornish attractions you could visit:
We hope you enjoy your break in Cornwall!
