Gale Cottage, Kingsand
Kingsand and Cawsand are neighbouring twin villages located in the Rame Peninsula, a stunning stretch of coastline in an area of outstanding natural beauty in South East Cornwall, known locally as 'The Forgotten Corner'. Once a thriving port for fishermen and smugglers, it remains an unspoilt, hidden treasure attracting artists, walkers and beachcombers with its picturesque and timeless appeal. Gale Cottage nestles in the heart of Kingsand, amidst the narrow winding streets and quaint colour-washed cottages, and is just a two minute walk from the beach and sea front. Popular among families and locals, the beach is safe for bathing, rarely gets crowded and the rock pools are a fascinating spectacle for children. The coastal footpath stretches in either direction, transporting ramblers along dramatic cliff tops, secluded beaches and coves and through the Mount Edgcumbe Park in the east with its Grade I historic garden (said to be the most beautiful in England). Once a fisherman's cottage, Gale Cottage has been beautifully furnished to a high standard throughout, combining period features with modern furnishings and appliances. The sitting room is relaxing and cosy with comfortable settees and a coal effect electric fire. The immaculate kitchen is well equipped and the upstairs family bathroom is newly refurbished. Luxurious fabrics, original artwork and antique furniture add a sumptuous and romantic charm to the bedrooms and the large walk-in dressing room provides guests with additional storage. A private enclosed courtyard adorned with potted plants and flowers at the rear is a sheltered spot in which to sit and relax. Art galleries, a convenience store, old inns and restaurants serving fresh fish and local produce, are within walking distance and parking can be found in the nearby village car park.
