Wonderfully relaxing holiday, spectacular views, excellent accommodation. We will be returning in the future.
Fantastic holiday in Freathy
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!
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.
We stayed at Seascape at the end of February 2016 for a week with our two dogs. We had the most lovely relaxing and restful time. There is plenty to do if you want to venture out to nearby towns and villages, but it is more tempting, I think, to stay local and enjoy everything that Seascape has to offer. Amazing views, the ever changing sea, the gorgeous beach and the garden with the clever glass balustrade. I don't think I have ever felt more relaxed, it's a place where you can really switch off. Seascape has everything you need, Jill the owner has thought of everything and more. It is compact but in a lovely cosy way and it is beautifully decorated with lovely nautical touches. It's certainly not a bland holiday let with no character. Quite the opposite! We experienced storms, sunshine and even a bit of snow during our stay. Seascape was warm and cosy throughout. We cannot wait to go back as soon as possible. Seascape is a lovely little hidden treasure and we're so glad to have found it. Thanks Jill!
A perfect retreat with stunning sea views
Had a lovely relaxing and peaceful holiday watching the sea and the beautiful sunsets from Seascape. A perfect retreat to recharge your batteries and explore a lovely area of Cornwall. Hope to return again.
A delightful cornish chalet with an amazing view
A very relaxing stay. The chalet was very cosy and well equiped and ideal for a couple or young family. It had truly amazing views over the bay and the beach was only a short walk down the cliff. Also the beach was dog friendly all year round which was an added bonus for us.
The property description was very accurate although I am not sure it would have accommodated 4 adults due to the size of the second bedroom.
We were sent comprehensive information about the property, parking and local facilities prior to arrival which was very helpful.
When we arrived the property was very clean and there was a welcoming cream tea and fresh flowers which was a very nice touch. Thank you Jill.
I would recommend this property. It is in a lovely situation and there are a lot of places close by to explore. We particularly enjoyed Mount Edgcumbe and Cawsands and found Jill, the owner, very helpful.
Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
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.
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.

Millbrook village - 2 miles
Crafthole - 3 miles
Cawsand and Kingsand - 4 miles
Antony House NT - 6 miles
Mount Edgcumbe Country Park - 7 miles

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.
