Stunning apartment

5 of 5
Very clean, comfortable and well equipped apartment. Couldn't have asked for more. Just a short walk into town and a great base for travelling around the Cornish coastline. Highly recommended.

A stylish apartment in Portmellon on the sea within walking distance of Mevagissey

4 of 5
We spent 5 days at Seatons Rest in early May 2017 and it is exactly as the owners claim; beautifully renovated and ideally located in walking distance of Mevagissey. Our only negative comment is that it is on the small side and we found two additional adults staying over for a couple of nights a tight squeeze. The apartment is ideal for two persons or a family with two small children.
