We live in Western Australia with our dogs Lenny and Lucky. Having gone to college close by, as well as having friends in the villages, we bought Draystone and were fortunate enough to get married and live in Cawsand for a couple of years before work took us further afield. We hope that you get to enjoy Draystone and the surrounding areas.
John purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why John chose Maker-with-Rame
It's just a lovely place to live beside the sea, with lots of variety, whether walking along the coast path, paddling a kayak out in the Sound or relaxing outside one of the pubs or cafes.
What makes this Cottage unique
Close to the village beaches, virtually a traffic free village. Never to far from a cafe…. or a beer.

A cozy, comfy cottage in a perfect location.
The cottage had everything we needed and was clean, warm and comfortable. The owner responded very quickly and supplied all the information we needed to know. We look forward to visiting Draystone again in the future.
Fabulous, property had everything we needed, great location
Six of us stayed for a “getaway” girls weekend. The property was great and very well equipped. We enjoyed sitting around the fire, chatting and also socialising and eating and drinking around the farmhouse table! Property is a good size, but has a very cosy feel about it. Great location for car park, pubs, beach and walks. The pubs are all different, but all offer good pub food and hospitality. We took some dvds in case it rained and we wanted a film, but we were lucky with weather and did not use tv. That would be our only negative, a small tv, but this did not impact on us in any way. However it might if you are a family with children who like TV and you were unlucky with the weather. The property was very clean and house manager is close by if you need anything. Booking was easy and owner extremely helpful. We would recommend this property, we had a great stay.
Wonderful cosy cottage
We stopped over the New Year. The cottage was lovely and cosy, less than 2 minutes from the beach and one of the 4 pubs in Cawsand. It was clean and well decorated. There were 5 of us and there was plenty of room. We didn't use the courtyard much but I can imagine its a lovely bit of outside space in the summer. John was very helpful and full of useful information. Overall a wonderful place to stay.
Wonderful cosy home with everything
Perfect spot for a festive getaway. Lovely house in brilliant location and perfectly equipped.
Well appointed property in a great location and contained everything we needed
Would recommend this property that gave us a totally relaxing stay and contained everything we needed. Would have liked a slightly larger tv but it did spoil our stay
It's always nice to receive some positive feedback from guests, we're glad you enjoyed your stay.
Comfortable cottage in the heart of Cawsand
As a family of five with 2 teenage children it was one of our best holidays. There was something for everyone to enjoy, walks, beaches, nice pubs, all close by. Would definitely recommend Draystone.
Always nice to hear that guests have had a good time and made some memories. There really is something for everyone close by. Thanks to everyone who helps each stay a success.
Special interest holidays:
Excellent Mountain Biking to be had on Dartmoor.

Lovely coastal path walks in either direction, Rame Head (Westwards), Edgcumbe Estate and Maker (Eastwards).
Plymouth is the closest town, approximately 50min by road across the Tamar Bridge, or Torpoint Ferry. The closest railway station is St Germans or Liskeard approximately 25 mins by car. In summer it is possible to arrive by foot ferry from the Barbican, Plymouth. Plymouth/Newquay/Exeter are the best airports to arrive from. Plymouth - Roscoff Ferry terminal 50 mins by car.

Several excellent National Trust properties are close by, St Anthony, Lostwithiel, Lanhydrock, Cotele, and Saltram House. Plymouth has the historical Barbican, Aquarium, and Mayflower steps, as well as the Hoe, (Catch the foot ferry over from the beach in the summer).
Kingsand/Cawsand has a lovely vibrant community. The coastal scenery is spectacular. The local pubs all provide good food and local ale! The villages have a number of small shops to buy essential provisions. Fresh fish can ordered locally. The local pubs and cafes, I'd recommend them all for different reasons, but the Devonport, and Crossed Keys are recommended, and a walk or cycle ride to the Cliff Top Cafe at Freathy is not to be missed. The View at Freathy for fresh fish is excellent, (summer only).
