Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a wonderful week at Seatons Rest. Lovely apartment in a stunning location. Perfect place for a family holiday. Walking distance to Mevagissey harbour - great for crabbing, loads of places to eat and people watch. Sitting on the beach at Portmellon watching the kids messing about in the water - quiet, peaceful and relaxing! Want to go back already. The Mackay Family - July 2014



Great location, 30 second walk to Portmellon Bay, 15 minute walk to Mevagissey Harbour. Lovely furnishings and very well equipped: Stylish, homely, and comfortable. Good base for exploring other areas in Cornwall, or chilling if you're not lucky with the weather! - K Allen Aug 2014



Stunning place to enjoy a relaxing holiday with views to leave you breathless and a special time leaving you wanting more. Mr A Williams 2014

A real gem!

  • 5 of 5

There are no words that can really give justice to how wonderful the fantastic Seatons Rest is!

The accommodation has period features integrated with a modern twist. From state of the art kitchen, shower room, speaker system, and under floor heating, to feature stone walls, wood burner, and ornamental pieces of history (to mention but a few).

We stayed four nights for my birthday and really didn't want to leave!

The property was well maintained and spotless. Also well equipped with utensils etc. including a bottle of fizz in the fridge!

The pub is a 10 second walk away where we got to meet some of the friendly locals. Out front of the pub is the beach and a fantastic view of the bay. Perfect!

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. We will definitely be booking again!

Wonderful location in a beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Port Mellon is a wonderful little village away from the masses in Mevagissey but an easy walk away for when you want the facilities. The apartment is perfectly located just behind the pub which has a games room and does food. We liked the fact that it was a homely down to earth out rather than one that has been urbanised.

Season Rest is beautifully furnished and equipped. If you're technically challenged you may need to read a few manuals yo get started but once you know how everything works it's an amazing place to stay. We're definitely getting a Sonos system when we get home!

Everything is of a very high quality and we especially enjoyed the comfortable beds - it makes a change to come back from a holiday without back and neck ache.

We were very lucky with the weather and really enjoyed the local beaches and cliff walks as well as the Lost Gardens of Helligan and Caerhays beach and castle.

All in all a most enjoyable holiday, thoroughly recommended.

Very comfortable and stylish property

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very welcoming and comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the excellent kitchen facilities. Lovely bathroom and bedrooms. Excellent quality furnishings. Although we did not use the wood burner, it would be very nice for a winter stay. It was a very pleasant walk into Mevagissey which provided all the necessary amenities. I would recommend the property to others. The owners were very helpful when we required advice for the heating system.

Glorious retreat

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully renovated apartment, luxuriously comfortable and spotlessly clean. We were there early January and it was a fabulous place to come back to each night, light the log burner and really relax. The location is perfect for staying local with the fabulous beaches, plus restaurants/shops in Mevagissy, or exploring further afield - e.g. 25 mins to Eden, 40 mins to Padstow and the North coast. The owners could not have been more helpful, and all in all it is definately somewhere to return to!

Excellent relaxing stay at Seatons Rest

  • 5 of 5

Had an excellent 5 days stay at Seatons Rest. The property has been superbly renovated to a very high standard and after reading the description in Owners Direct, met all our expectations and more. Great decking area for relaxing after a walk on the costal path and having a BBQ in the late afternoon sun. Kitchen very well kitted out and enjoyed a cup of ground coffee in the mornings! Double bed was better than the one we have at home. Could not fault our very relaxing stay and will be back.

Location

From the Owner

In the winter of 2014/15 we invested in a full refurbishment of the apartment, ripping away years of damp plasterboard and "cover it up" DIY. Seatons Rest is now restored to a beautifully styled apartment with exposed original Cornish slate walls . You will find all the modern comforts you need but with a nod to the seaside setting and the buildings past. We are superbly located for exploring Cornwall and its many attractions. You can do as much or as little as you want to here. Getting out and about is easy, there is great walking and Cornwall has so many great places to visit, but if you just want to chill out, it doesn't come much more relaxing and laid back than Portmellon and Seatons Rest.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Newquay at 30 Miles Nearest Barpub : Portmellon at 25 Metres Nearest Ferry : Mevagissey to Fowey at 1 Miles Nearest Golf : ST Austell at 6 Miles Nearest Train : St Austell at 6 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Mevagissey / Gorran at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : Portmellon at 25 Metres Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

Portmellon beach approx 50 yards away (no sea view at apartment) This is a typical Cornish cove with a sandy beach. Low tide reveals a wealth of rock pools and at high tide the beach is completely covered. As is common in Cornwall there can sometimes be seaweed on the beach. Great walking available along the Cornish coastal path here.

Travel:

Newquay Airport approx 40 miles

St Austell mainline train strain approx 7 miles, National Express coach to / from this station also

Distances:

Nearest inn is at Portmellon cove, 1 mile distant is Mevagissey fishing village with a wealth of little shops and many restaurants and watering holes. This is a hilly but enjoyable walk. Goran and Gorran haven about 1.5 miles distant both offer eating and drinking places. Close to the Eden Project and The Lost Fardens of Heligan.

There is a pub in Portmellon Cove.

Further Details:

Very close to the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Eden Project about 9 miles, nearest supermarkets are at St Austell but there are some great farm shops around if you dont want to drive all the way to town. Loads of activities and attractions within short driving distances to get out and explore. Great walking too and ample beaches.

Facilities

From the Owner

Very close to the beach but well sheltered from the sea, a lovely sun trap on the front patio, great for morning breakfasts and sundowners. Superbly comfortable inside, really well equipped and very cosy. A modern boutique styling provides the ultimate holiday getaway environment. Sufficient parking for 3 vehicles and walking distance to pubs, restaurants and small shops at Mevagissey. Portmellon is perfect as it is away from all the hustle and bustle of Mevagissey but this is all within easy reach when you want it.
