Welcome to Erica - just sit back and take in that view.
You can enjoy the view from every room.
The cottage kitchen.
Bedroom 1 is on the lower ground floor with direct access to its own terrace area.
The view is very special.
The little galley kitchen is well stocked.
From the kitchen the large windows open up leading you out to the higher decking area.
A lovely corner in the kitchen to have your morning coffee.
The sitting/dining-room is on the first floor.
Erica is set over four floors to make the most of the view. The open-tread stairs are a little steep and may not be suitable for all.
The dining-area takes pride of place soaking in that view.
The cosy sitting-area with its toasty wood-burning makes this a great retreat all year long.
Bedroom 1 on the lower ground floor has a super-comfy king-size bed.
Steps lead out from bedroom 1 to a utility-area, shower-room and the stairs to the upper floors.
The shower-room is situated on the lower ground floor.
The bed in the second bedroom is adorned with lovely linens, cushions and throw.
The view is framed perfectly in the second bedroom.
The second bedroom has an en suite cloakroom with a hand-basin and WC. Please note there is limited access to one side of the bed.
Erica sits in the heart of the twinned villages of Kingsand and Cawsand.
You are so close to the sea it will send you to sleep at night.
The Old Bakery Cafe is opposite Erica - how convenient is that, you can smell the bread as it's baking!
The old Devon/ Cornwall border sign which used to run between the two villages - there is now a more obvious border - the River Tamar.
The villages have a great choices of places to eat and drink. The Halfway House is only a few yards down the road. On a Wednesday night you might hear the Halfway Harmony singers singing a tune or two.
The villages of Kingsand and Cawsand are utterly charming.
Another pub in the village offering good old traditional hospitality.
At low tide there is a large expanse of beach - your four-legged friends will simply love it.
Watch the comings and goings of the water.

Beautiful and convenient location for two. Lovely feel to the cottage, quiet yet in the centre of things close to shops , pub, ferry and beaches, but also managed to feel tucked away Would recommend

We stayed at Erica for 5 nights and really enjoyed it. It’s centrally located with walks, shops, and pubs just down the street. The views were fantastic and we spent a lot our time looking out the window and reading about some of the history of the area. Maybe not ideal for the vertically challenged - going up and down the narrow stairs but the cottage’s character and location are certainly worth it! We would definitely stay again.

Fantastic character cottage in an amazing location. Views from windows and decking are incredible. Great to have pubs, beach and lovely walks on the door step. We had a fantastic break and loved the area.

The view from the cottage is second to none with a choice of two small terraces for some alfresco dining. (I have made some concerns I had with the outside space to Classic Cottages). The cottage is very small and the stairs are steep. It sleeps 4 comfortably in the two bedrooms but the sitting room only has a two seater and one armchair for evening relaxing. The location is perfect for a getaway break, close to beaches and some fabulous walking!

This was our first visit to the twin villages of Kingsand and Cawsand and we loved it! The location of this property was amazing and we never tired of looking at the views from every room. Lots of lovely walks on the doorstep and a great local shop (The Stores) on the doorstep for delicious treats on your return. Everyone was very friendly and we will definitely return.

Excellent location,, clean and comfortable.

What a beautiful little village Cawsand / Kingsand is. Erica is situated on the prettiest little winding and narrow street and the kitchen and lower bedroom doors open directly onto balconies overlooking the sea. Parking at the local carpark and walking up to the property was very easy - we paid on our phones for a week (£18 I think) and then came and went as we wished. The Old Bakery opposite Erica closes for the winter but there is another little coffee shop a minute away at the end of the road where the coffee is great and pastries are delicious. The Halfway House Inn is the nearest pub and the staff and locals there were so friendly. We loved Cawsand / Kingsand and the locals, and we loved staying at Erica.

This quirky little cottage with fabulous sea views on each of its four floors has the makings of a magical holiday let. Sadly however, currently it is badly let down by chronic lack of maintenance. Hopefully, the owners of the property can be persuaded to address the various problems we’ve raised with Classic Cottages and will refurbish to a level that will realise the cottage's full potential.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments - we are so glad that the location worked so well for you. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Sarah, Customer Support

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Erica. It is in the most stunning situation and we loved being so close to the sea and being in the centre of such a thriving little village. Our dog was made welcome everywhere we went and the walking was a complete joy. We walked the whole Rame Peninsula, to Mount Edgcumbe and back and on another day we caught the super little Cremyll ferry over to Plymouth. We hope to return and have recommended it to several friends too.

Awesome views and location

Excellent location stunning views peaceful Christmas break everything we needed in cottage loved it didn't want to leave

Fantastic property for a wonderful family holiday. Erica has everything you need (did not miss the TV) and amazing views from two deck areas - the sunrises are worth getting up early for! The location is perfect and right opposite the village bakery - perfect.

The weather not so good but it doesn’t matter when you have such a wonderful view and surroundings. Just heaven to listen to the sea, you’re so close.

The most perfect location , very peaceful and the views a real tonic to wake up to ! Enjoyed every minute. The cottage was very well supplied .. literally everything we needed .. and more ! Games , rugs for the beach , a little canoe . Only negative are the 4 floors but that’s the price for the views from every room - 2 patio doors and terraces and even a large picture window in the lounge which fully opens !

Perfect, if small cottage. The large balconies with great sea views make up got the lack of internal space

Erica is a quirky comfortable cottage in a stunning location. Set over 4 floors it certainly keeps you fit and our dog found it very confusing! Kingsand/Cawsand is beautiful with little winding streets & great walks in either direction. The property is certainly handy for the bakery where we got our morning pastries & fresh bread & there is a well stocked shop & even a fish & chip van at weekends. We would love to return

Thank you so much for your lovely comments for Erica. Your local recommendation for morning pastries sounds lovely - what a great way to start the day! We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Sarah, Customer Support

Amazing cottage with fabulous views. Great walks from the doorstep, 5 pubs within walking distance. A truly wonderful break.

Lovely cottage with fabulous views. One room on each of the 4 floors so lots of stairs. If tall , over 6 foot, you need to be wary not to bang your head! Easy walking from the village to Rame and Edgecombe .

Lovely cottage in a peaceful setting with amazing views from every level.

Lovely comfortable cottage with amazing views. The location was perfect and we enjoyed sitting out on the terrace having meals al fresco. Would definitely stay at this cottage again.

Idyllic Cornish cottage with superb views overlooking Cawsand beach and estuary . A personal highlight was listening to the waves from the bedroom as one falls asleep .
