  • “The cottage oozes character and history and has been generally well modernised.”

    The owners had generously provided more kitchen items than we were expecting, very helpful. The new bathroom with walk in rain shower was wonderful. A couple of niggles: the bathroom was not completely clean. We did not need to use the front bathroom, however, no water came out of the hot tap, so we could have had issues. The cottage instruction pack needs updating by the owner. A car parking pass is no longer provided but we spent a lot of time looking for one, as referred to in the instructions. The local councils have changed their practice and require a registration number to be entered on parking passes. This would be a valuable benefit as guests are required to use the village car park apart from loading and unloading. It would not be too difficult for the owner and Sykes to require future bookers to provide their car registration numbers in advance so that the owner/housekeeper could purchase a permit and have it waiting in the cottage. The cottage in Devon we had booked for the week prior offered this benefit which we appreciated. Otherwise, Sykes should make it very clear in the Cousham cottage advertising that bookers would benefit from ordering a weekly pass in advance from the local council. Finally, the spiral staircase required extra care to negotiate, especially when descending. Apart from these niggles, we enjoyed the cottage and particularly the roof terrace at wine o'clock, very much indeed.

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.
