Luxurious property in peaceful location

5 of 5
The Mill is exactly as portrayed on the Web Site. It is beautifully presented and everything is of a high quality inside. The owners are there if you need them but do not intrude, you feel welcome to share the lovely site. It is rather remote and access is via a long farm lane but that added to the charm for us. Despite its seclusion It was very easy to get to north and south towns and beaches. A perfect self-catering getaway with the feel of a boutique hotel, we would love to come again. Highly recommended.

Beautifully presented and had everything you need.

Seatons Rest is a property I shall be recommending to friends and family. The property has everything you need for a holiday in Cornwall, under floor heating (if the weathers not be kind to you) lovely powerful shower with plenty of hot water and a well equipped kitchen. Decorated and finished off to a very high standard in each room, which is something you don't always expect from a holiday home which was a real treat!
