Seacott Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Seacott is a quirky, detached cottage perched at the top of the cliffs of Porthtowan in Cornwall, boasting beautiful, far-reaching sea views. With two bedrooms, one double with en-suite bathroom and one ground floor children's bunks bedroom, this cottage can sleep four people. There is also a ground floor family bathroom and an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with woodburner. Outside is off road parking for one car, and from here 40 steep steps lead up to access the cottage with its private, decked garden with sea views. Seacott offers an unusual, yet wonderful base from which to enjoy beach life at its best.

Porthtowan is a small village settled in west Cornwall's beautiful coast, and is renowned for its Blue Flag beach, which at low tide exposes almost a mile and a half of fine, golden sands. Fringed by impressive cliffs, the beach is a popular surfing venue and is lifeguarded during the summer, making it ideal for families.

Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cementedits place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.

Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Off road parking for 1 car. Enclosed decked garden with furniture. Two well-behaved dogs welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Shop and pub 10 mins walk.

The cottage was perfect for us. We went away for a restful stay with the grandsons, they loved the beach and swing park being so close and the view which was amazing, it was lovely to lie in bed and listen to the stormy sea.

I loved the beach style feel of the property and the fact you could see and hear the sea. Had a good view from the lounge and even glimpses of the sea when lying in bed which I really enjoyed.

The large enclosed decking for our dog was excellent and the view over the bay was lovely. Going in December we were ready for cold days but the weather was fantastic and the wood burner was cosy in the evening. We would strongly recommend this property and will hope fully be back next year.

A lovely clean and comfortable cottage in a great position overlooking the beach. Very friendly and approachable owner. Lovely to have the wood burner as well, the coastal path was right outside our door so access to it was perfect.

Fantastic location for the beach and coastal walks. Excellent play park less than 5 minutes from the cottage and the beach only a few minutes more. The Unicorn pub did a great Sunday lunch. Good base to explore what West Cornwall has to offer.

Excellent property in a great location. Lots of steps up to the cottage but a great view was the reward for your effort. We booked to go back to the same cottage next summer during out holiday.

An absolutely wonderful getaway, we didn't touch the car for the whole week - bliss! Beautiful beach just 5 minutes walk, good local amenities and fabulous doorstep walks.

Had a week at this cottage ,lovely location but there were a few minus points. The kitchen was not very well equipped no grater no whisk no casserole dishes or anything to cook a cottage pie in ect. The cottage had a very strong smell of damp especially in the bunk bed room . The furniture is a bit tired and worn. Its a big shame that the trees and shrubs have not been pruned as they now block all sea views which would be lovely . Unfortunately the gas ran out and we had to sort it ourselves as there were no contact numbers and the owner had gone away for a few days , it was lucky we had a adjustable spanner.

Spent a week in this delightful cottage just before Easter. We travelled with an 8 year old and 2 dogs and ALL had the most fantastic time. The cottage itself is perfectly equipped with everything you need. Bunk beds and bathroom downstairs. Attic bedroom and bathroom upstairs. Comfy beds, lots of got water, couldn't wish for anything else. Lounge comfy with books, TV, wifi and most of all stunning views from decking . Many an hour was spent on the beach at Pothtowan, literally 2 minutes walk away. We were very lucky to go week before Easter as from Easter onwards, dogs not allowed on beach which is very unfortunate as it ideal for dogs to run. Rock pooling fantastic for kids. Enjoyed many a wonderful meal in the blue-bar. Very chilled out. Not much else to do in the village but there is a shop and chippy. But honestly you don't need anything with that beach. Must places to visit include St Agnes for another perfect little beach is just 10 mins drive. Perranporth has an amazing sandy beach and trendy bar on beach. Food there wonderful. Wow we loved it. But best of all was our trips to St Ives. We parked at Leylant Saltings (this was recommended by wonderful owners), caught train into St Ives and stopped off at Carbis Bay. Words cannot say how beautiful this place is. Like being in the Med. Gorgeous. St Ives great fun, lots of shopping and ice cream. All in all, cottage is perfect, wonderful, friendly owner next door, position within Cornwall perfect for many an enjoyable day. Wish I was there now

Lovely cottage, very useful washing machine in the kitchen. Perfect location 10 minute if that walk to the beach which is quite rocky but leads to sand the closer you get to the sea. Very handy pub at the bottom of the hill with a little cinema room for wet days. Steps leading up to the cottage would not be suitable for people who have mobility issues. It's a shame that the trees surrounding the decking out the front obscure the view of the sea. Over all I would recommend this cottage you could quite easily stay in the local area go to the beach every day walk along the cliff tops, leave your car in the little parking space and chill, surf and enjoy the pub
