The villages of Kingsand and Cawsand are situated within a Historic Conservation Area and designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with unspoilt clean beaches. The former fishing villages have remained completely unspoilt with a maze of narrow streets and pretty cottages. This is a thriving community with excellent local pubs (Especially the HALFWAY HOUSE), restaurants, tea rooms, shops and churches.
The magnificent coastline of the Rame Peninsula
and Mount Edgcumbe House
and Park are all within easy walking distance. Also nearby are the renowned
beaches of Whitsand Bay with its fine golden sand, excellent swimming and
surfing facilities. The city of Plymouth is easily reached via the Torpoint Ferry
runs from Plymouth to Mount Edgcumbe with a second ferry running during
the summer months from the Barbican in Plymouth to Cawsand Beach.
