“Away from the rat race”
Reviewed 6 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Comfortable and warm, this cottage was just what we were looking for. A well equipped kitchen for the chef (husband), lots of piping hot water for bubbly baths (wife) and a secluded garden (dog). Interestingly laid out with lots of little angles and steps, we enjoyed many evenings just reading or watching films from the selection provided on a TV with excellent reception. That's when we weren't eating a delicious meal at The Napoleon.

Ideally situated for travelling to other Cornish towns, but we enjoyed the steep walk up and down into Boscastle through the pretty narrow streets for exercise. Our favorite time was morning, when we woke up to see Forrabury Folly from the bedroom window, knowing we'd walked there the day before!

“Lovely, comfortable property with fabulous views”
Reviewed 26 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Booking was very easy and we were kept well informed. Everything was as described. Very comfortable accommodation. Welcome pack included everything you could need. Property very close to an excellent pub serving good food. Easy walk down into Boscastle, very difficult climb back. Easy access to all of the North Cornwall coast. Would thoroughly recommend the property.

“Stunning panoramic views of the sea from bed, with tea, every morning, perfect!”
Reviewed 27 April 2015 for a stay in November 2014

My husband and I stayed at Seagull Barn for 4 and a half months as a winter let. The cottage was perfect size for us and very cosy. It was a good size when we had guests to stay too due to the 2nd bedroom and 2 bathrooms. It is beautifully and stylishly decorated. Very close to the lovely Napolean Arms and wonderful walks down through the village down Fore Street or through Minster woods. Paradise indeed.

“A very quaint cottage with a sea view from the bedroom.”

As there was just the two of us so this cottage suited us just fine, with a pleasant view of the sea when lying in bed.
The cottage was presented in a clean and tidy state on arrival and every thing we needed was provided, even down to a bottle of wine. The garden was enclosed so we could let the our dog run free and it was only a 10 minute walk to Boscastle, a little longer coming back as quite a steep hill.
The only improvement i would recommend is a pump for the shower as the water pressure is low so made taking a shower a drawn out affair.
Should also advise as stated in the advert, the steps to the cottage are steep, so you need to be nimble on your feet.

Many thanks for your feedback on Seagull Barn, and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. I have made a note of the recommendation of a shower pump to the maintenance team and they are dealing with it as we speak. I have also commented about the steepness of the steps on our description to make future guests aware. Kind regards, the team at Cornish Seaview Cottages.
