With direct access to the beach via a flight of cliff steps and uninterrupted sea views towards Looe Island and beyond, this south facing, detached and double glazed garden flat, offers a peaceful haven for couples set in the owner's attractive garden.
Approached by an external flight of walled steps, which lead down from the private roof-top parking area and a shared outer lobby, the light and airy self contained accommodation is fronted by a delightful wooden deck which is rewarded with spectacular sunsets. A couple of steps lead up to the glazed front door opening to a smartly fitted galley kitchen with stripped pine flooring and panoramic sea views from a picture window.

There is a small built-in breakfast bar with high stools, a useful hanging cupboard, and a comfortable sitting area in a sunny decor with a corner settee and a large mirror to reflect the glorious views. To one side, a door leads off to a bright double bedroom with hand basin, an en-suite shower room W.C. and a glazed door opening to the sheltered sundeck.

The patio door makes it possible to enjoy the view without getting out of bed and there is also a unique cliff top bench seat where you can watch the local fisherman pulling in their lobster pots below. A path leads down through the owners landscaped garden and orchard to a series of private railed steps (62 in all) down to the large south facing beach and foreshore.

Seaton
has a local shop, seasonal beach cafe and pub, and Downderry with a coffee shop, village store, restaurant and pub are both 500 yards respectively and a 5 minute walk either by road or beach. The picturesque harbour town of Looe is 7 miles away with pleasure boat and fishing trips departing from the quayside and a railway station. The South West Coast Path and the Seaton Valley Countryside Park offer lovely walks, there are several golf courses nearby, and diving is available locally.

Sleeps
Close
When a property shows 'sleeps' in the format X-Y, X equals the maximum number of adults that can comfortably be accommodated and Y indicates the maximum number of adults + children that can be comfortably accommodated in the property.
Customer Rating
Close
Our rating method, the popular "smiles" system is generated entirely by the feedback we receive from our visitors. The number of smiles is arrived at by taking the average grading given to the question:

How would you rate the cottage's fittings, furnishings and equipment?’

A property will achieve a rating of 5 Smiles down to 1 Smile, although it is our policy not to carry any properties with ratings lower than 3 Smiles. The customer chooses from the following ratings:
  1. Excellent
  2. Good
  3. Satisfactory
  4. Below standard
  5. Poor
There are a number of properties that have been recently added to our portfolio and these are graded "New".
Pets
Close
There is an extra charge for pets, most commonly at £24 pppw (per pet per week).

Assistance dogs are of course welcome in all our cottages free of charge, however owners of them should be aware that a considerable number of people are allergic to dogs and in some cases can have a severe reaction. Owners are therefore encouraged, where at all possible, to choose a property which normally allows pets.

Some properties accept pets other than dogs, but in all cases we are required to confirm consent from the cottage owner. Please contact the office on 01208 895 354 if you would like to take a pet other than a dog with you to one of our cottages.

If you are eligible for the Loyalty Discount your final balance payment will be reduced accordingly after your booking has been submitted. The Loyalty Discount cannot be claimed with any other discount.

  4. 'Reserved' weeks (as opposed to 'Reserve' weeks) can only be booked by a customer who has 'Reserved' the highlighted period.

Pricing information

All prices are per week per property. Many properties promote an all inclusive price although some charge for extras such as bed linen, towels, heating and/or electricity. The Property description will detail any extra charges.

Definitions

Booked: A customer has committed to a holiday period by paying a deposit or the full amount for a rental period.

Reserved: When a property is not yet available to be booked, a customer can 'Reserve' the property in their name on a first come first served basis. When Cornish Traditional Cottages and the owner have agreed availability and pricing for your selected period we will contact you to let you know if you can then book the property in your name. A Reservation does not guarantee a booking because the owner has first right of refusal on all availability.
Short breaks
Close
There are few better places to take a short break than in Cornwall. They can frequently be arranged, mainly out of season though, for periods to suit guest's particular requirements, but there is always a minimum rental, for practical reasons.

Cornwall in the early Spring is usually blessed with fine warm weather. It is this climate which brings out the wild flowers and spectacular gardens which make this time of year such an ideal one for a holiday. During July and August and other busy times of the year short break holidays are normally only available at short notice, but please enquire and we will do our best to accommodate you.

If short breaks are available, the cost of a short break is calculated as follows:
3 nights: 70% of weekly rental price
4 nights: 80% of weekly rental price
5 nights: 90% of weekly rental price
6 nights: 100% of weekly rental price

Reservations
Close
Weeks marked as 'Reserve' (highlighted in blue) can only be 'Reserved' (ie they cannot be booked) at this point in time because availability and prices have not yet been agreed with the owner. You can reserve these weeks in your name on a first come first served basis until availability and pricing has been agreed.

It is important to note that a 'Reserved' period can only be booked if the owner wishes to make the 'Reserved' period available for booking. Upon completion of your reservation you will receive confirmation by email or post containing details of the reservation.
