  • “This is a fantastic, unique and very comfortable holiday home.”

    There are a lot of steps down to it but after a couple of trips up and down it becomes much easier. It’s worth it for the seclusion and spectacular views. ...

    There are a lot of steps down to it but after a couple of trips up and down it becomes much easier. It’s worth it for the seclusion and spectacular views. All the appliances are very modern as is the decor. The espresso coffee machine was a bonus. The large utility room and extra downstairs loo and shower came in useful. There are lovely walks along the coast path nearby and we enjoyed swimming from the rocks and beach area just below the house (via a newly cleared path). Be aware that the access road to the property is very narrow with few passing places but thankfully not many vehicles need to use it.

The property

Private and secluded, this period property sits atop the cliffs and has spectacular panoramic sea views.

Sited directly along the coast path, follow in the footsteps of smugglers and explore the historic Napoleonic fortifications protecting Plymouth sound.

In the evening why not meander along to the pretty fishing villages of Kingsand and Cawsand where you'll find plenty of pubs and restaurants in which to enjoy a hearty meal.
