Book self-catering holiday cottages in the historic twin villages of Kingsand and Cawsand for an unforgettable stay

This beautiful 17th-century cottage stands on the water’s edge of the fishing village of Cawsand with panoramic sea views from most windows. There is no better place to enjoy the extensive sea views than from the large galleried balcony. In the summer you can enjoy views of crystal clear water below, much like being on a ship in tropical waters. In colder months, the cosy cottage is the perfect place to light up the log burner and marvel at the dramatic seascapes on your doorstep. 

On the ground floor the kitchen living room is open plan. The kitchen is well equipped with a table and chairs for four with a further breakfast bar. A cosy living room with a log burner, sliding doors onto the gallery balcony with views across the bay. A W/C can be found in the hallway.

The first floor provides a large double bedroom with stunning sea views and a twin room on the street side. A Jack and Jill bathroom can be found in between.

The cottage is perfect for people looking to hear the waves gently crashing on the shoreline or if you are an early riser, watching stunning sunrises over Devon.

Criterion Cottage can be found on Garrett Street in Cawsand a short walk from many restaurants, pubs, beaches and shops.

The nearest car park is a five-minute walk away in Cawsand, but you can always drive past the property for offloading.

“Myself and my partner had the most wonderful stay at Criterion Cottage. It’s a beautiful cottage and the views are truly breath-taking. It has everything you need during your stay and Forgotten Corner were very caring, attentive and on hand whenever needed. We can’t wait to come back again.”

“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Criterion Cottage. It really is the most picturesque location and you can’t beat the view! It’s a stone’s throw from a beautiful little beach, a pub, a lovely take-away and a couple of minutes walk to a little shop, so you have all you need on your doorstep. We wouldn’t hesitate recommending a stay at Criterion Cottage and very much hope to return one day again soon!”
