About the property

Bungalow in Whitsand Bay, Millbrook, Cornwall, England - In A Unique Position On The Cliff, 5 Minutes From Beach Where Dogs Are Allowed All Year Round

Seascape is a detached, fully insulated and double glazed bungalow. It is suitable for both summer and winter holidays, including Christmas. High on the cliff, it is only about 30 metres from the road. Free parking is available just a 3 minute walk away in Freathy Fields. Rebuilt in 1981, it has recently been modernised. It is well-equipped and has some interesting and attractive features making it feel like a real 'home from home'. An enclosed, mainly lawned garden surrounds the property and affords a choice of paved seating areas, making it ideal for relaxing whilst taking in the panoramic sea and coastal views towards the ancient fishing port of Looe in the west, and the Rame Peninsula in the east. Spectacular sunsets are also to be enjoyed. The garden gate opens onto a path down to the beach, which is just 5 minutes walk away. Inside, a stable door opens into hallway. There are 2 bedrooms, a lounge/dining room, a separate kitchen and a shower room with WC.

wonderful, warm and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

before we'd even stepped inside, we were already breath taken by the wonderful view, straight out across the sea. the actual cottage itself is superbly equipped and the added touch of scones, cream, and jam was such a welcome touch after a long drive! the big window facing the sea is perfect for watching the world go by, (hours were spent doing this!) and its just as nice when its stormy out as its so warm and cozy indoors. the dual control electric blanket on the master bed was perfect for those who sleep at different temps! (the bunkbeds are perfect for a cheeky snooze as well for the smaller amongst us!).

The glass edged garden gave enough shelter to sit out and enjoy a glass (or 2) of wine, even in midwinter when we visited! if you'd like to see Cornwall, its perfectly placed, we went down to St Ives right down south in only around an hour and a half, perfect for a day out, and of course the Eden project, Looe, Polperro and many other places are all just a short drive away. Overall, the perfect place to escape the world, sit, read, explore, relax, re-group. We shall be going back!

Fantastic holiday in Freathy

  • 5 of 5

Very impresed with all Seascape had to offer, this property is very well maintained & very clean. We arrived to a delicious cream tea, thanks to the lovely owners Jill & Roy. The views were amazing both in sunshine & showers. We had a fantastic holiday and would love to visit again soon.

A little piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Seascape for a week, just me and my three dogs. I only ventured out in the car once, choosing to spend all my time at the property, relaxing, reading, walking the dogs on the beach and just gazing out to sea. The view is spectacular, the beach is lovely and the property is a delight, very well equipped, homely, beautiful and well cared for. Sitting in the garden in the evening, with the gorgeous view, listening to the waves, is just magical. If you want to get away from it all and recharge your batteries, book this little piece of heaven! I can't wait to come back.

Location

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

N/A

Coast/Beach:

The bungalow is located on the cliff at Freathy, which forms part of Whitsand Bay. At low water, the sandy beach is revealed and stretches for several miles. The beach is just a 5 minute walk down the cliff path. Many water sports can be enjoyed. The beach is ideal for family games or for running. Sandy pools form around the rocks, making it an exciting place for children to paddle and explore. At high tide, the sea comes right in and the beach is completely submerged and washed clean.

Travel:

The nearest airports are Exeter (50miles)

Plymouth channel port (7miles)

Plymouth railway station (8miles)

The use of a car is desirable, but not absolutely essential, as a bus service from Plymouth stops very close by.

Distances:

Plymouth - 7 miles

Millbrook village - 2 miles

Crafthole - 3 miles

Cawsand and Kingsand - 4 miles

Antony House NT - 6 miles

Mount Edgcumbe Country Park - 7 miles

Looe - 14 miles

Fowey - 20 miles

Whitsand Bay Hotel - 4 miles

Further Details:

The nearest shops are at Millbrook where there is a Spar supermarket, a pharmacy and a Post Office. Torpoint offers a wider choice, with banks and a Sainsbury's (6 miles). For a full range of shops, Plymouth is a short drive away.

The Cliff Top Cafe is within easy walking distance and can be approached by road heading east or, at low water, via the beach and up the cliff by the next path along. Drinks, snacks and cooked breakfasts and lunches are served all year round. The highly regarded View restaurant is also within walking distance. The Finnygook Inn at Crafthole serves excellent food and allows dogs. The Whitsand Bay Hotel is well known for its high standard of cuisine and also allows dogs. The old coastal villages of Kingsand and Cawsand are well worth a visit.

The historic City of Plymouth offers a full programme of events throughout the year and offers many attractions: a walk on the Hoe and a visit to Smeaton's Tower (the old lighthouse); a visit to the Barbican with its ancient buildings and many pubs and restaurants and the Plymouth Gin Distillery; shopping in the large, modern Drake's Circus shopping mall; a dip in the huge, recently restored, seafront lido and much more. Mount Edgcumbe is a country park (free entry) with far reaching views of the sound with its passing warships, ferries and yachts. It is also possible to look around the house. The ancient fishing port of Looe is within half an hour's drive. Fowey is very attractive, well worth a visit, and less than an hour away.

Water sports and horse riding are also available locally. Excellent walks along the south west coast path are available from the doorstep. A walk on Rame Head, which can be seen by looking to the east, is especially recommended.

For children, there is a playing field just across the road equipped for tennis and football. There is also a climbing frame and small 'pirates ship' suitable for younger children. The nearby Whitsand Bay Holiday Park has an indoor swimming pool.
