Absolutely Fabulous bungalow to stay in

5 of 5
As the holiday property details say, Sea Mist is most certainly a home from home! We have stayed in lots of holiday properties across the whole of the UK and can truly say this is the best holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. The biggest selling point for us, apart from its location in lovely Rock, is that it most definitely has a fully enclosed garden for our two beloved dogs, thus ensuring they could not escape out and which is a huge benefit for young children as well. To also be able to walk across the Golf Course, which backs on to this lovely bungalow, to Rock beach and then into Daymer Bay Beach again is absolutely fabulous and which we enjoyed doing early every morning (the dogs loved it too)! The other thing we must mention is the fantastic shower in the shower room, again we have never come across a shower in a holiday property that has such a good pressure on it and a brilliant sized shower cubicle. Overall, we would not hesitate at all in highly recommending Sea Mist to anyone who is looking for a holiday in lovely, Rock, Cornwall. Sue and Paul, Suffolk (April 2017)
