Seascape is a detached, fully insulated and double glazed bungalow. It is suitable for both summer and winter holidays, including Christmas. High on the cliff, it is only about 30 metres from the road. Free parking is available just a 3 minute walk away in Freathy Fields. Rebuilt in 1981, it has recently been modernised. It is well-equipped and has some interesting and attractive features making it feel like a real 'home from home'. An enclosed, mainly lawned garden surrounds the property and affords a choice of paved seating areas, making it ideal for relaxing whilst taking in the panoramic sea and coastal views towards the ancient fishing port of Looe in the west, and the Rame Peninsula in the east. Spectacular sunsets are also to be enjoyed. The garden gate opens onto a path down to the beach, which is just 5 minutes walk away. Inside, a stable door opens into hallway.

Honestly, it's been a hell of a year one way or another. Working almost until Xmas day had just about finished us and then just as we were about to take a breath the family arrived! With dog! Busy got busier as our catering skills were called into action and to be honest before the presents were even opened a break seemed the only tonic. In fact, (and just between us) we were going to sneak out as the Turkey was being digested. But duty ruled us and so we didn't, we waited until New Years day when the family had departed. Finally free, we beat a hasty path to Freathy. A picturesque corner of the world where peace is interrupted only by the sound of the surf as the waves make their way up the perfect beach.
Seascape looks down on this scene and when relaxing in the sitting room the view is such that you could well be on a ship far out at sea. A calm serenity descended on us as we feasted on good food amazing scenery and a pretty taxing walk around part of the coastal path. 70 Floors ascended apparently. From Freathy the entirety of Cornwall is at your feet. We visited Lands End, dodged the Range Rovers in Padstow and generally did what we wanted, when we wanted at our own pace. From the side gate of Seascape a scramble down the cliff path will see you on the beach within minutes. Rock pools and astonishing formations will entertain you and the kids no end. If not, then there's more than enough space to fly a Kite. I can only imagine how gorgeous the garden of Seascape must have been this summer or what it must be like when the sea is stormy and I hope that one day we will return to find out.
The owner, Jill, was friendly, communicative and helpful throughout. The house itself is well equipped with everything you might want and we found plenty of oils, herbs and spices.
If you're looking for a getaway with amazing views in this beautiful part of the world we can heartily recommend it!
Great views and a nice homely feel to the place
Amazing little place in Cornwall - Fantastic sea views, faultless communication
We booked Seascape for 4 nights (in October) to have a few days away after our wedding. Although we knew from the pictures that we would love staying at Seascape, we did not realise how breathtaking the views are from the garden and the leaving room's sofa. The uninterrupted views of the sun rise and sun set only are worth the 5 hour drive to Cornwall. The accommodation itself is also very lovely. Everything you need for your holiday is there. The communication with the owner is second to none. It shows that the owner cares about her guests having a good stay.
My husband and I will definitely go back.
Thank you! So pleased you enjoyed it as much as you did. People are always surprised just how amazing the view is, even after seeing photos. There's nothing quite like actually being there. Photos don't do it justice.
Yes, it really does matter to us that our guests have a good time.
Hope you'll be back again soon!
Comfy Cabin with everything you need at your fingertips. The garden and the view make this property and we had a fantastic week with very hot weather. The walk to the beach and back is very healthy for you!!! Neighbours are extremely helpful and informative. Nearest supermarket is Sainsburys at Torpoint - a 5 mile drive away. Loved the fact there are no shops nearby. Although there is no parking at the property, the parking space available is only a short walk across the road to the recreation field. This is our first holiday in 17 years where we had no rain!! Jill (the owner) is very helpful and available if needed. Our 2 dogs loved it especially the long beach walks. Hoping to make a return visit.
Thank you so much for the lovely review. Just wanted to say that there are shops at Millbrook, which is under 3 miles away, including a Post Office and quite a large Pharmacy. In addition to a Coop supermarket, there's a shop a bit like Waitrose that sells some interesting and more unusual food items. there's a very good fish and chip shop there too called Posh Nosh.
Hope you'll be back!
The cottage was nice and clean, had everything you needed for your stay, only need your clothes and food.If was worth it just for the spectacular views, over looking the sandy beach and the sea of Whitsand Bay, a quiet unknown part of Cornwall. Beach was accessible by three steep paths each side of the cottage, and only once a day determined by tide times while we stayed a week.The weather was fantastic for the week, so good we ate outside admiring the views for breakfast and our evening meals every day, we also sat outside relaxing, chilling drinking wine into the sunset.Parking wasn’t to bad across the road in a field surrounded by holiday homes, found everybody was so friendly especially the next door neighbors, who live in the property most of the year, very helpful with local knowledge. The Cream Tea was a lovely touch which we enjoyed, homemade scones was especially good.Great for our dog as the outside area was totally enclosed and safe, he really enjoyed the holiday, as much as us, with long walks along the sandy beach and paddling in the rock pools. Shops was within a 5 mile drive with also places to eat what are dog friendly. Fully recommend it as a place to stay and we shall be returning again in the future.
Beautifully clean and well-maintained chalet in an exceptional cliff top location. Can't fault it. Plenty of places to go and see if you chose, but we just stayed put. Sat in the sun loungers and gazed out over the sea. Absolutely perfect. If you did work up the energy the glorious sandy beach is just at the foot of the cliff path, and there are times of the day when you can go down there and have the place to yourself. Breath-taking.
Special interest holidays:
The bungalow is located on the cliff at Freathy, which forms part of Whitsand Bay. At low water, the sandy beach is revealed and stretches for several miles. The beach is just a 5 minute walk down the cliff path. Many water sports can be enjoyed. The beach is ideal for family games or for running. Sandy pools form around the rocks, making it an exciting place for children to paddle and explore. At high tide, the sea comes right in and the beach is completely submerged and washed clean.

The Finnygook Inn at Crafthole serves excellent food and allows dogs. The Whitsand Bay Hotel is well known for its high standard of cuisine and also allows dogs. The old coastal villages of Kingsand and Cawsand are well worth a visit.
