- english, A little French and German
We bought the house in 2013 and it has undergone a major renovation programme. Passionate about architecture this is probably the last in a long list of wonderful and magical places we have lived in. I hope our passion shines through... it's our home not just a holiday let. If this appeals, then you'll feel at home too.
Caz purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Caz chose Maker-with-Rame
Simply, it's the most magical house in a brilliant location. Amazing views from every window and no-one to overlook you. We are not isolated though and villages and beaches are very close with the city of Plymouth across the water by ferry or accessible by road. This is a pretty unique property.
What makes this Cottage unique
Water views from every room and a boat mooring if you require it. The river is also good for canoeing. We have over an acre of gardens including a field awash with primroses and bluebells in the Spring. It's a great place for kids and dogs to explore. The walks are amazing and the sea and beaches are so close. Add to that the wonderful local villages with good food and larger towns close to hand and ponies to watch on Dartmoor. What's not to like? Inside the colours have been chosen to suit the light in each room. Natural stone floors are laid throughout. The sitting and dining areas are warmed by a large fire in the winter along with wonderful new cast iron radiators, that are lovely to sit on. We love to cook so we think we have covered every angle in the kitchen. This room has amazing water views. A large range gas cooker gives ample cooking and we have all the usual.. dishwasher etc with washing machine and separate dryer in a utility room that leads to the downstairs toilet. Oh yes, and you can and you can sip a glass of wine and watch the sun set.

Peaceful escape for a week
We had a lovely week getting to know a beautiful and new (to us) part of Cornwall, being convenient for Plymouth, and the hidden treasures around the Rame peninsula.
The house was very cosy, and ideally located for exploring the local area.
So pleased you had a lovely time in this very special part of Cornwall.
Lovely house, beautiful surroundings, great for walking with lots of dog friendly beaches & pubs.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautifully furnished home, it had everything that we needed, including very comfortable beds!
Although a car is necessary to get to the house, the local shops, and excellent places to eat, are close enough to walk to. Both 'The Canteen' in Makers Heights and 'The Devonport Inn' in Kingsand were both excellent and well worth the walk.
We'd recommend this house.
A special place to stay
Happy memories of our week at Spindrift - loved the views, the light, the location, the sense of history. And the rainbow makers on a sunny day! Our family had a great time visiting the many wild coves along Whitsand Bay, exploring and blackberry-picking at Maker Heights (food at The Canteen was best we’ve had in ages) and canoeing at Kingsand and Cawsand. It’s a lovely part of the world and Spindrift is a special place to stay. Thanks to Caz.
Great location , wonderful inside and out .
Lovely cosy cottage , with a homely feel, in a great location. When the tide comes in , it feels like you are on a boat , as all you can see from most of the windows is water. Nice area for country and coast walking , and as we brought some kayaks with us ,were able to launch from in front of the house and do some paddling in the estuary. The weather wasn't the best for our stay over easter, but we still managed to get out and about to enjoy the beautiful countryside.
Lola the labradoodle loved the house and enjoyed exploring the gardens. Caz was very helpful , and supplied some good info about the area.
We would definitely book this cottage again in the future.
excellent facilities, excellent surroundings, so relaxing and everything was as promised. Thanks
As a family of five we struggle to find the right place where everyone can relax and enjoy the time. Spindrift was a fantastic location, we enjoyed a day in Plymouth and some lovely walks / visits to simply majestic little harbours. In truth we did not have to go far to find something for everyone. Thank you Caz for letting us share your wonderful home.
We are located on the wild and beautiful Rame Peninsula. Known as the Forgotten Cornwall, its wild untamed beaches and countryside set it apart from the better known areas of Cornwall. No queues, no crowds and with some of the best sandy beaches in England.
We are nestled in the hill on the waterfront with river views from every room. Watch the birds skim the water with the occasional boats going past and sit and enjoy the sunset. We have one boat mooring too, but the river is tidal. The beautiful beaches of Whitsand Bay are a short drive over the hill. Great surfing, rock pools, dog walks and cliff exploring. Kingsand/Cawsand are very easily accessible for family friendly swimming in the sheltered coves. Many other beaches are close by as well.
We are surrounded by acres of lovely woods and fields as our house and orchard/field backs onto the 800 acre Mount Edgcumbe historic house and estate.
The Eden Project is readily accessible and there are plenty of well known restaurants within easy reach. Historical Plymouth is close to hand via road, car and foot ferry. It's a great day out.
A real sense of community exists in this part of the world. The quintessentially Cornish villages of Cawsand and Kingsand are lively in Summer and they have great pubs and food. Historical houses abound, including nearly Port Elliot, the Grade 1 listed mansion in the same family hands since 1565. Mount Edgcumbe is beautiful and a short walk to explore all that's on offer.
The stunning Tamer Valley is very close to hand. Dartmoor and Bodmin moors are within easy reach to watch the wildlife. In Spring our field and the surrounding countryside is awash with amazing bluebells. In short....we love it!
