Step Inside

Seaton House is an award-winning architect designed cedar clad home set over 2 floors. Tucked away behind large private gates, an oasis of holiday luxury awaits as the pathway leads to your front door. Arrive right into hub of the house, the large open plan living, dining and kitchen area are flooded with natural light from the floor to ceiling glass windows which perfectly frame the stunning sea views beyond. With a fresh coastal colour palette, think stripped wooden floor boards, a pared back Scandinavian style and healthy dose of the vitamin sea at every turn. The kitchen is a modern sleek white design offering all you need to enjoy the finest Cornish culinary menus from hearty brunches to fine celebratory dinners. The dining table offers a persuasive stay at home option for the perfect 'table with a view'. The spacious living space is relaxed and versatile, slide back the glass doors to extend the space onto the beach-bleached terrace or hunker down beside the fire as the Winter winds whip up the surf. A cloakroom and practical utility room are located just off the kitchen. Descend down one fight of stairs to the first of the bedrooms, a beautifully private room with direct access onto the lower terrace and ensuite bathroom. A collection of 3 further bedrooms are located along from the kitchen area. Choose from 2 coastal inspired rooms each with those jackpot sea views and the master bedroom complete with oval bath and feature rain shower with views of the sea for the ultimate coastal indulgence. A large family bathroom with oval bath and separate rain shower completes the first floor layout. 

From your Holiday Door

Slide back the full height glass doors and step out to the large terraces that wrap around the house on the upper and lower levels. Located just off the living space terrace is a large dining table perfectly positioned to tempt al fresco diners as the waves lap below. Follow along the seaward side of the house and come to the outdoor heated swimming pool and bubbling hot tub where guests can soak away the day under the stars, enjoy a morning dip as the sun rises and wile away the day flipping from beach to poolside. A spiral staircase leads down to the lower terrace where an amphitheatre of built-in seating huddles around the sunken fire pit, the scene is set to extend those holiday days long into the evening wrapped in blankets with only the sound of the sea to disturb. The beach is accessed from the lower terrace in just a few steps down from the gate. At low tide the beach reveals many rockpools where children can play and explore to their hearts content. The River Seaton meanders across the beach and acts as a focal point for children who can safely play here also. The sea is quite sheltered from both waves and the wind by the high cliffs to the West. There are a number of local pubs in the area serving up fine local ales and hearty pub grub including The Copley Arms at Hessenford. Within Seaton, The Smugglers Inn is a characterful local pub or Waves Bistro is great for lunches overlooking the sea. A children's park is within walking distance from the house. Guests can also take a gentle stroll along the promenade to the nearby Downderry beach and if the tide is high you'll see local fishermen casting out their lines. For a day in the city, the maritime appeal of Plymouth is well worth a visit whether you prefer to hit the shops, explore the Barbican or visit the Aquarium, it really is a great day out.  Royal William Yard in Plymouth - is great for eating, drinking and shopping and guests can get a foot ferry from Mount Edgecombe (Cremyll) which is 25 mins from Seaton House to Royal William Yard or take the car on Torpoint Ferry (25 mins drive) or they can drive over the Tamar Bridge. Looe is also a popular spot for visitors offering quintessential Cornish harbour and local atmosphere.

From summer stays to winter weekends, Seaton House offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy a very Cornish way of life and create unforgettable holiday memories.
