Seaways Porthcurno is in the middle of Poldark country, close to the best beaches and views in West Cornwall. You'll love it because of the light, airy, comfortable accommodation, decorated to reflect the seaside atmosphere. The garden is secluded, with sub-tropical plants and unexpected corners. There is garden furniture on the south-facing deck, so you can catch a tan there all day, and a barbecue for al-fresco eating. Seaways is good for couples, solo adventurers and families (with kids).
'Seaways' is a purpose-built holiday home furnished and decorated with leisure in mind. It is quite secluded in the small village of St Levan, but only five minutes by car from great beaches such as Porthcurno. There is a great pub and a village shop in St Buryan, ten minutes away, and it is close to all the attractions of West Cornwall, including Lands End, the artists' colony of St Ives and the fishing village of Newlyn - make sure to have a Jelbert's ice cream . Or two.
The whole house and garden are yours to enjoy entirely as you choose and there are friendly neighbours on either side. There is a choice of an accessible pathway or steps leading from the parking area to the front door. Internally there is just one step between the kitchen/bedrooms section and the rest of the property. The sundeck is a level area accessible from both sections of the house. Unfortunately, owing to the loose gravel on the surface of the garden paths the property isn't really suitable for wheelchairs.
We do not live within easy distance of the property so we won't be around during your stay, but we employ a very reputable management company who will be happy to help with any problems you might have (details at the property). Because we can't welcome you in person we can't provide the usual Airbnb breakfast but there will be a Cornish cream tea waiting for you.
- Families with very small children are always welcome but would need to bring a travelling cot and high chair or booster seat
Born in Cornwall a while ago, married with three sons to Ross. Still have lots of family in the area and get back to my homeland as often as I can. I am now retired from the National Trust, having worked at one of their flagship properties, Stourhead in Wiltshire. I love painting, knitting, sewing and my two small granddaughters. We like to be comfortable on holiday but don't expect a high level of luxury; instead, whilst being very friendly, we prefer to be reasonably private.
