Bownder House is located in a spectacular setting in one of the most beautiful parts of Cornwall. It lies close to the waters edge in the picturesque village of Cawsand, the entire village is a designated Conservation Area and directly adjoins the sheltered and crystal clear waters of Plymouth Sound with the Mount Edgecumbe Estate providing a verdant and sylvan backcloth.

Steeped in history, Cawsand together with its neighbour Kingsand are the quintessential Cornish seaside villages intertwined by narrow streets with “chocolate box” fisherman’s cottages. The 630 mile long South West Coast Path can be accessed immediately from the property. From here one can enjoy views across the bay to Fort Picklecombe, the Mount Edgcumbe Estate, Plymouth Breakwater, the City of Plymouth and Dartmoor on the horizon. The constant passage of commercial, naval and pleasure craft around the bay and in the entrance to Plymouth harbour, makes this an extraordinary, distracting and awe inspiring outlook. For those with boating interests there are a wide range of marinas around Plymouth’s waterfront to suit all types of craft with many places to explore by boat including the River Yealm, the River Tamar and of course Fowey Harbour all suitable for day sailing.

The villages of Kingsand and Cawsand both have a welcoming community, are home to the Rame Gig Club and are well equipped with a variety of local shops, pubs and restaurants together with a sailing club and other facilities. A pedestrian ferry lands on Cawsand Beach and provides a very convenient link landing directly on Plymouth’s historic Barbican.
The Rame Peninsula is relatively little known, often described as ‘Cornwall’s forgotten corner’, forming part of the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with quiet beaches and outlined by the South West Coastal Path. The Mount Edgcumbe Country Park, an 800 acre area of coastal woodland and open hillsides, is possibly one of the most beautiful and varied locations of Cornwall, lies on the edge of the village.

Nearby St Mellion International Golf Resort offers unique 4-star facilities including an AA luxury hotel, leisure centre, Elemis day spa, tennis courts, a European Tour golf course, a brasserie and an award-winning restaurant, in addition the Whitsand Bay Golf Club at Portwrinkle (7 miles) is a fabulous clifftop course with awe inspirning views over the bay. There is a Montessori Nursery at St Germans (9 miles) and independent schools at Tavistock and Plymouth.

Plymouth has a long and historic waterfront together with a mainline railway station (Plymouth to London Paddington 3 hours) and a cross channel ferry port with services to France and Northern Spain. International flights are available from Newquay (44 miles) and Exeter (55 miles). The fabulous harbour side town of Fowey lies 30 miles to the west and the famous surfing beach of Polzeath is just over a 1 hour drive.

Bownder House is surely one of Cornwall’s finest coastal homes, beautifully presented to a contemporary standard and with each of the principal rooms taking advantage of the extraordinary sea views. The versatile layout with a self contained guest suite/annexe enables the property to be used as a family home with potential to holiday let the annexe or indeed for multi-generational living.
