  • “Cousham Cottage is a delight.”

    It has a super location in a very quiet street but only a few steps to the beach, and is a quirky but very well laid-out old cottage. The only minor drawback is that it is a typical old cottage with low ceilings and doorways, so you need to mind your head! It was beautifully clean and well equipped, and plenty of space for four people.

The property

In Cawsand, a stone’s throw from the beach, a 17th cent., Grade II listed cottage, its interesting past hinted at by the smugglers’ tunnel disguised in an under-stair cupboard.

Once also the village sweetshop, it nestles alongside sister cottages on a narrow lane behind the square with only occasional vehicles passing.

Behind, sheltered by a high wall and with a peek of the sea between rooftops, an enclosed suntrap paved terrace with decked area (table/chairs).

Inside, good-sized rooms and original beams (some low lintels).

From the lane, 3 steps up to tiled lobby and bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

Stable doors and step up to living/dining room (smart TV/DVD, woodburner) and smart cottage-style kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, freezer, larder fridge, electric cooker) with slate floor and granite worktops.

Rear hall (space for beach gear/boots, children’s board games) and shower-room (suite, overhead shower plus hand-shower).

Steep narrow stairs (5'2" beam, rope rail) wind up to the first floor landing (smuggler’s tunnel cupboard; door to garden) and two bedrooms - a double (5' bed), and a twin.

Not suitable for guests with limited mobility.

A welcoming cottage in a friendly seaside village. Kingsand and Cawsand: exquisite adjoining fishing villages in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty sheltered by a wooded headland; pebble-and-sand beaches, family pubs, cafés, essential shops.
