This is our second year at Seaview and once again we weren't disappointed. The property commands a high vantage point looking down on the bay and I could sit for hours watching the view.

Would I recommend this property, absolutely, in fact we've already booked for next year.

“Perfect house for large family with perfect views”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed here with our family of 8 adults and 2 small children. It was a relaxing time. The hill kept us all very fit to and from the beach. If you are looking for things to do in Bigbury on sea this is not the place for you. You have to travel out and about down the narrow country lanes. I would recommend Seaview if you just want a relaxing holiday. Alan and Maggie were very professional when we arrived greeting us and showing us around. Thank you Alan & Maggie for letting us use your holiday home.

“A most wonderful holiday home”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

I have just returned with my family from spending a most wonderful week in this spectacular house. Every thing was just perfect. My family of 12, aged from 6 weeks to 64 had great difficulty in tearing ourselves away from such a beautiful house, gardens and out of this world view of the coastline . Maggie and Allan were there to welcome us to their home, and to show us around and explain how everything worked. So much nicer than being left to fend for ourselves as happens in most holiday homes. I cannot recommend Seaview highly enough, and can't wait to return.

“WOW, WOW, WOW”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Saw this property advertised when I was looking for a smaller property in the area.
Decided to book it regardless and we were not disappointed.
Stunning views across the bay, great kitchen facilities. Bedrooms are lovely with great views as well.
Audio Visual system was excellent with a great library of films and music.
We have stayed in many properties around the world and this is up there with the best of them. Would recommend Seaview to everyone.
Never seen a bag of bird seed go in one week on the bird feeder, birds are queuing up as soon as you refill the feeder.
Will definitely return soon.

“Dream holiday home!”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This wonderful house provided a memorable family gathering for a 50th birthday. It is difficult to describe just how wonderful Seaview is. The views are breathtaking and panoramic with vantage points from many rooms and amazing view from the landscaped garden.
On arrival the house was immaculately clean and the owners greeted us and showed us around and how to use amenities of which there are many! Family favourites were the integral coffee machine and the 100" projector screen. Heated bathroom floors and excellent showers were a treat.
Overall the decor and presentation was stunning. We would happily have moved in permanently!
The area was great for gentle exploration. We enjoyed the beach and local towns. The place was so lovely that we stayed in most evenings to enjoy cooking in the excellent kitchen and to enjoy the films!
This truly is a dream holiday place. Everything is high quality and beautifully presented.
If we ever win the lottery this would be the place to buy!!!
