Seal Point is such a special welcoming house, well appointed and wonderfully situated with its very own steps to the beach and rock pools.
Picturesque Mousehole with its sandy sheltered harbour is only a short walk away and the spectacular Cornish Coast has so much to interest and entertain all ages; tin mines, sand and surf beaches, wildlife and boat trips, to name just a few. (We recommend Cormorant Cruises - great fun AND we saw dolphins!)
We have just returned from a short break at Seal Point Villa in Mousehole and what an amazing time we had. We booked the 3 night stay as a present for my Mum's 60th Birthday and it has been truly magical. She had always wanted to visit Cornwall at Christmas so we booked it to coincide with the Christmas light switch on. The booking process was very easy, Esme has been so great to deal with from day one and made everything very straightforward for us. We had looked at the pictures online which are beautiful but they do not do the house justice. It is absolutely gorgeous with stunning views from most windows, even bringing a tear to my mum's eye when we arrived! There was a hamper to greet us on arrival which was lovely and Esme & Rob had thought of every detail; I had my 8 month old daughter with me and there was a travel cot and highchair for us. The house was lovely and clean, very well maintained and the parking spaces a great bonus as parking can be tricky on the night of the light switch on. There were 10 of us but the house was so large we had plenty of space for everyone and my daughter could sleep in peace while the rest of us were playing board games and having a laugh. The lights were magical; very busy on the night of the switch on but you can view them from the house if you do not want to tackle the crowds. We also wandered around the following night, up and down the streets which are lit by laterns and cannot fail to put you in the Christmas mood. We didn't eat out but had a Christmas dinner in the house and then sat around the cosy fire in the lounge. Esme and Rob popped in to make sure we had everything we needed and even brought round a cream tea to celebrate my Mum's Birthday which was just delicious and such a nice touch. Thank you for making our family trip so perfect, we cannot wait to go back! I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a holiday in Cornwall.
