Not far from the Cornish border with Devon, Cawsand is an ideal hideaway for anyone loving views of the sea, walks on the beach, and helpings of obligatory clotted cream teas.

Often twinned with neighbouring Kingsand due to proximity, the simplicity of the two traditional 17th century fishing villages is what pulls visitors wanting sand, sea and peace. Hard to believe they were once in different counties; a house near Kingsand post office marks the old line. Cawsand has a long stretch of shingly sand that's perfect for picnics, and swimmers brave enough to dip in more than a toe. Little rockpoolers will be delighted with the many inlets, harbouring tiny anemones and interesting shells.

You should be able to lure the family off the beach with the promise of an indulgent cream tea at The Old Bakery, and a well-timed trip could include the chance to take their one-day sourdough bread course. If walking is preferred, breath-taking coastal pathways take hikers south, around the stunning Rame Head Heritage Coast, with its sparkly sea views; on a clear day, keep an eye out for birds, seals, and the iconic Eddystone lighthouse, still keeping a watchful lookout for boats in the surrounding ocean.
