The Details

Location

Where is it?

The Courtyard is situated in the heart of Kingsand, just moments from the shoreline. Kingsand sits on the Rame Peninsula, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is the perfect place for birdwatching on coastal ambles. This former fishing and smuggling village is known for its narrow, cottage lined streets and three secluded beaches. The iconic Clocktower overlooks Girt beach, a small shingle bay. On the other side you will find the main beach, slightly wider and sandier, which backs onto the Cleave. A short walk out of the village will take you to the rockpool dotted Sandways beach. Or, if you are feeling energetic, the high cliffs and stretching sands of Whitsand Bay are just over five miles away along the South West Coast Path.

It is rare to hear about Kingsand without mention of its neighbouring twin village of Cawsand, but things weren't always this way. Up until the mid-1800s the two villages were actually in different counties, their boundary marked by a small stream. Sitting side by side, head to the neigbouring area, where you will find the Cawsand Ferry chugging across the Cornwall-Devon border to Plymouth. Listen to the clang of anchors and the squawk of seagulls on route to Plymouth’s city centre, abundant with cafes, pubs and shops.

Guest Reviews

This was a perfect getaway, Kingsand was delightful with lovely views, walks, pubs and people. Surfing at Whitney Bay was great, too and only 10 mins drive.
We enjoyed a great stay at the courtyard. The location was brilliant - close to beaches, walks, pubs, sops etc, and the property was well appointed and deceptively spacious. A lot of thought had obviously gone into the layout and recent renovations and we couldn't fault the cleanliness - it was spotless.
