“Perfect location, highly recommended”
Reviewed 19 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We booked this house for 2 families, mainly due to the location. And it really didn't disappoint. Halfway up the cliff road, it's perched on the side of the cliff and has amazing views over the bay/beach. It's just a short walk to the beach itself, and there's even 2 pubs on the way!
The house itself is very comfortable, very spacious, and very well equipped; absolutely everything you'd need for a great stay (and more) is provided. There's parking for 2 cars. There's loads of outdoor seating space, and areas for kids to play inside and out.
It's fair to say that the house is perhaps no longer as smart as the pictures. The front has seen it's share of coastal weather, it has a lived-in feel, the hedges are somewhat overgrown and obscure the view from the decking..... overall it's probably in need of a little TLC (hence the pictures/comments on a previous review, although in our opinion these were very harsh!). HOWEVER, I would really not let this put anybody off, it remains a lovely characterful house, and we would recommend it to anyone and would happily return ourselves.
Overall it's very comfortable, loads of space, and the location could not be beaten!

Hello Simon,

Thank you very much for taking the time to send us a review!
We loved to hear that you had a good time with your family in our property. We'll fix the issue with the hedge and hopefully we'll be able to accommodate you once again soon.

Best wishes,
Melissa

“Fabulous location but property in need of TLC”
Reviewed 7 February 2017 for a stay in August 2016

Three families stayed at this property with children ranging from 8-18 years in August 2016.
Although the location was great, just a short walk to the beach the condition of the property was disappointing.
Broken glass in the 1st floor bedroom window
Peeling exterior paintwork
Weeds growing in the guttering and patio area
Broken electrical socket in child's bedroom
Broken garden furniture and soiled cushions
Inadequate recycle bins which meant seagulls caused a lot of mess
Broken tiles on bedroom vanity basin
Balcony structurally unsafe.
General accumulated grime, cobwebs and damp patches, dirty carpets
Although most of the complaints were sorted out by the letting agency based in London we had considerable disruption to our holiday waiting for work men to fix windows, boilers, electrical sockets, it wasn't the relaxing Cornish break we had in mind.
If you appreciate clean, well managed accommodation then this is not the property for you.

“The best start to a happily ever after fit for a princess!”
Reviewed 20 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We were down from Yorkshire for my daughters wedding and as I have a big family, we needed somewhere big enough to cater for all of us. Sea forth was perfect for this! We spent most of the week in the garden where we enjoyed our family time together but the lounge was perfect for the wedding day preparations. The garden was perfect for the grandchildren to play and the trampoline had many a fun moment for them. The house was perfect for the stay and right from the start we felt welcomed with the freshly made scones (what a wonderful smell to be greeted with) and the wine. The maintenance man came to fix the gate and the handrail up to the upper garden half way through our stay but he couldn't have been more accommodating to what we had to say. The bedrooms were luxuriously large enough for what we needed.
All in all, what a perfect house for a perfect week. Will be coming back for sure!

“Perfect position and great accommodation”
Reviewed 27 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We rented this property over the Easter weekend 2015 and were not disappointed. The property is exactly as described and pictured online.
The views are utterly breathtaking and the beach is so close.
We would recommend it for families with children.

“Great for children”
Reviewed 6 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Seaforth is very well situated overlooking the beach at Porthtowan. Booking process excellent and simple. The house was well cared for, very warm and acceptably clean. Ideal spot for beach or walking holiday.
2 criticisms. Dishwasher was very poor & the property could do with double glazing.
