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.

Lovely pub with a gorgeous view and the food looked fab. We walked from Captain Blake’s retreat (about 35 mins downhill) and caught the bus back. The bus stopped at the top of the road. Both the bus and pub dog friendly!

Nearest beach

Kingsand Beach (40 yards)

This pleasant sand and shingle beach backs onto the 17th Century Cornish fishing village of Kingsand. Popular for swimming and boating, it is close to all the village amenities, including a 120-space car park. It is also close to the historic fishing village of Cawsand.

Nearest walk

Cremyll to Portwinkle (1 ½ miles)

An interesting thirteen mile hike along the Cornish Coastal Path with stunning coastal views taking in Mount Edgecombe Country Park and several pretty Cornish villages with obligatory watering holes! Make sure you plan your journey back as public transport in the area is limited.

Coastal walks

Would highly recommend this and all local walks in this area. You can make the walks as long or short as you wish, little villages to stop off for a lunch or coffee and everyone offered a warm welcome to us and our dog!

Nearest town

Kingsand (250 yards)

Together with its twin village, Cawsand, Kingsand is a little piece of holiday heaven. Tiny, twisting streets, a string of three beaches separated by rocks (excellent rockpooling to be had here) and calendar-perfect fishermen’s cottages have inspired many a photographer here. If you’re looking for an oasis of peace, you’ve come to the right place.

Also nearby

Tregonhawke Beach (2 miles)

Making up part of the three-mile long Whitsand Bay, Tregonhawke Beach is a great spot to sit and while away the hours. Access is via a series of fairly steep steps or along from neighbouring beaches. Just be careful though as although low tide reveals large tracts of sand, at high tide this is all but covered up. Popular for surfing, swimming is only advised in lifeguarded areas.

Lovely stretch of beach

You can walk for a few miles at low tide...beautiful sandy beach with rocky outcrops every so often...steep climb but a couple of options for tea along the way!

Really easy to get to along the coastal path..if you fancy a slightly easier walk head up on to the road once you have gone up the first set of steps and walk along to beach view cafe for the descent onto the beach (check the tide times) but it’s a lovely 3 mile beach and completely unspoilt. Eddies cafe is particularly good after all the walking and before you start the climb back up the steps!!

Unspoilt!

Parking is first come first served on the road at top. Not for the faint hearted or those with small children as the way up and down is very steep but once at the bottom the views are fantastic. Miles of sandy beach, well served by lifeguards within the flagged area. Cafe half way down. Not for those looking for a family beach with facilities but good for beach games, paddling and beachcombing. Go on a clear day when it's less windy.

Perfect for views far out to sea, large sandy beach well worth the climb with a welcoming cafe.

Mount Edgcumbe House and Country Park (1 ¾ miles)

Mount Edgcumbe House and Country Park sprawls over 865 acres of the Rame Peninsula. Built in the 16th Century, the house contains 500 years’ worth of history, artefacts and treasures. Explore the house before turning your attention outside and heading out into the grounds and parks, where paths and trails weave their way around picturesque routes. You may even see some of the park’s fallow deer, too.

Excellent

The staff are very welcoming and helpful. The food excellent, well presented and tasty. Good value for money. Wonderful gin selection. Warm and cosy pub. We ate here 4 times on our week long break. Definitely will go again.

Finnygook Beach (4 ¾ miles)

Beautiful sand and pebble beach, popular with surfers and bodyboarders. Short walk from car park (get there early in summer!) and cafe nearby. Finnygook is the eastern end of Portwrinkle, which itself consists of two beaches and marks the western extremity of Whitsand Bay.

Gorgeous sandy beach just the right size for letting children run free while small enough to still keep an eye on them. Convenient car park and small cafe. Slightly off the beaten track so a great place to get away from the crowds.
