“Picturesque and peaceful for a relaxing family holiday.”
Great Easter holiday, beautiful house with plenty of space inside and out. A short walk down to the beach where you can catch a foot ferry to Plymouth - a great way to see Kingsand & Cawsand.
Plenty of pubs (so no need to cook) we especially liked the Devenport, Cross Keys and the Rising Sun - all child friendly too! If you do feel the need to cook the village store has everything you need.
Hope to be back soon

We had a wonderful half term holiday in this charming and comfortable house, which was very well and thoughtfully equipped - we especially appreciated the comfy beds! The house is light, bright and spacious and we loved the layout which maximised space and was ideal for family holiday living.
The newly created terraced garden is lovely and it was a great treat to have breakfast on the terrace enjoying the stunning views in the autumn sun.
The location is perfect in the beautiful and friendly seaside village, enhanced by the
lack of cars on the streets. We had a lovely day out at Porfell, great walks and pub lunches. Especially recommended are the View restaurant and The Devonport pub.
We will certainly be back!
