Cornwall - Kingsand

Kingsand and Cawsand are twin villages in southeast Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. The villages are situated on the Rame Peninsula and in the parish of Maker-with-Rame.
Until boundary changes in 1844 Kingsand was in Devon; Cawsand, however, was always in Cornwall. On the old county boundary between the two villages there is still a house called Devon Corn, which has the marker on the front of the house. The villages are popular with tourists but retain their traditional character.
The villages are well known for their smuggling and fishing past. Although the known smuggling tunnels have been sealed up, there are still old fish cellars and boat stores to be seen along the coast.
One notable former resident was John Pollard RN. He was a midshipman (later a Commander) in the Navy who served under Nelson and is the man credited with being "Nelson's avenger", since it was he who shot the French sailor who killed the Admiral. Nelson himself has also been said to have visited the village and dined at The Ship Inn (now closed). Other notable residents have included Tabitha Ransome (Arthur Ransome's daughter) and also Ann Davison who was to become the first woman to sail the Atlantic single handed in 1953 and departing from Mashfords boatyard.

St Andrews Cottage

Tel: 07803 372 785

Cawsand is located on the Rame Peninsula, known as the Forgotten Corner by locals because it is largely unspoilt by too much development and bustle. We are on the South Coast in Cornwall, just over the Devon border from Plymouth, where you are never far from water with the coast on three sides and the Rivers Lynher, Tamar and Plymouth all nearby. 

St Andrews Cottage  is a large, luxury Cornish home comfortably sleeping 8-10 people. It is ideal for families or friends wanting a clean, bright place to enjoy all the pleasures on the Rame Peninsula.

The cottage has recently been completely refurbished and still has plenty of the village charm. St. Andrews Cottage has a well equipped kitchen, with modern appliances, a large terraced garden with stunning sea views, where guests can enjoy dining al fresco in the sunshine and a cosy sitting room with a log burning fire for cooler evenings.

Cawsand and Kingsand are adjoining villages, on the south side of the Cornish Coast, just over the Devon border. Originally a fishing village with a colourful history of smuggling and naval daring, it is unspoilt by time, with little traffic on the one-way through road.
