In Cawsand, 50 yards from the beach, one of centuries-old cottages that line a narrow lane behind the square (vehicles pass once in a while). Much of its original charm remains, complemented by a contemporary twist with stylish decor and furnishings. A small back garden climbs up steep stone steps (care needed; steps shared with neighbour) behind the cottage to a level lawned area and little suntrap seating space (table/chairs) with view of the sea over rooftops.
From the lane, 3 steps up to porch and pretty stained glass door to living room (TV, woodburner) with oak floor. Four steps up to bright kitchen/dining room (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, small tumble drier and microwave, larder fridge, electric cooker) with door to back garden, and 4 steps up to small single bedroom (2'6" bed, 5'6" lintel, limited clothes-hanging space); neatly built under the stairs, a shower-room (suite) and cupboard with table-top freezer. Upstairs, two more bedrooms - a double (5' bed), and a twin (footboards, hooks for clothes-hanging). Bathroom (suite, shower over bath). Best for maximum of 4 adults. Quietly tucked away just a stone’s throw from the village hub and beach.
