As 2 couples in our mid-twenties we wanted somewhere to relax from busy everyday life. The SeaHoss did not disappoint!! We had an amazing time, the house was wonderful - the pictures do not do it justice!! Lovely little touches like the basket of goodies on arrival. Great location right on the harbour with plenty of places nearby to eat and drink - can particularly recommend the Sharksfin for a great meal by the sea! Carrie was great and really helpful, offered advice on places to go and things to do in the area. We will definitely be returning to the SeaHoss in the future and sending our friends and family!

Nick was extremely helpful throughout the whole process and happy to answer any questions I had. The house is a perfect location and great for a large group. The beds were really comfortable too. I would highly recommend anyone book this place up :)

The cottage was fantastic and had everything we needed and is of high quality. The grounds of the hotel are well maintained and the kids loved the park. Hotel leisure facilities were used and loved by all, the bar and restaurant were also excellent as was the bbq night that the hotel organise. All the hotel staff were very polite and helpful. The location we also found excellent for visiting cornwall and most places we visited were no more than an hours drive. We had a fantastic holiday and are planning on returning to the same location next year. The owner is very helpful and great communication, if you are visiting Cornwall would highly recommend this cottage.
