Hidden away on spectacular Freathy Cliff, this little-known corner of Cornwall is home to Sealight, a beautifully bijoux retreat with never-ending sea views. It's a perfect spot to watch the ever-changing sea and skies, and at night gape at the blissful canopy of stars above - just gorgeous. Inside, Sealight is simply decorated in shades of white, whilst it's wooden-clad on the outside with a sunny deck for whiling away an afternoon or two, salty breeze tousling your hair and a glass of Cornish fizz in hand. With a footpath to the three miles of golden beach right on your doorstep, this is the retreat to head to when you want a complete break. Please note, due to its location, Sealight isn't suitable for those with mobility restrictions.


Petitely perfect, this pad is made for lovers seeking a seaside bolthole away from the world. A cosy sofa for two is made for nestling up in, with a gorgeous wood burner next to it to keep you warm. Subtle lighting adds an extra chilled ambience of an evening as well, for when you want to spend hours gazing at the stars or spot the lights of fishing boats at sea through the huge windows - they can be folded back to bring the outside in on balmy nights. If the weather's not so clement, there's a television if you fancy snuggling up with a good film on a blustery night. The decking area is just made for unwinding at dusk after a day of gazing over stunning sea views. With an oudoor table for two, it's perfect for dinner al fresco and there's a decadent hot tub for sunset soaks with your beau - just heavenly. There's an outside shower too to wash the sand off after a day at the beach, whilst the neat hedges offer privacy - perfect!


The cute galley kitchen is made for rustling up a romantic seafood supper. Complete with everything you need, including a Dualit toaster and kettle, equipment is hidden away - carrying on the white minimalist feel of the retreat. A cute table for two can be found nearby, set up so you can both enjoy the view over a bottle of something sparkling whilst being small enough to play footsy underneath the table...


The bedroom is fabulously simple, a petite love den tucked away out back so cool in summer and cosy in winter. Resplendent with cushions, the bed is super-comfy and boasts pretty artwork, fab lighting, hanging space and a floor-to-ceiling mirror.


There's a single shower and a heated towel rail so you'll soon be toasty warm after a bracing cliff top walk.

Outside Space

Relax and unwind on the outside decking area, complete with an intimate outdoor table and chairs for dining al fresco. A blissful spot to catch sight of rolling Cornish waves in the soft evening sun. With the beauty of seclusion and unparalleled ocean vistas, you’ll never want to leave. After a sandy afternoon on the beach, you can clean off in the outdoor shower - perfect for your furry four-legged friend too! For the dreamiest eve, soak in luxury with Sealight's heavenly hot tub and gaze over sunset views with a glass of sparkle in hand; an oh-so-romantic addition to this coastal love nest.


Sealight welcomes babes in arms (under 6 months) - please bring your own baby equipment.


Sealight has broadband (800mb) so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world you can.

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Sealight:

Absolutely lovely place, has been done really well and so homely and comfortable, everything there you could want or need. Location is stunning, we had the best Honeymoon there.

A very cosy lodge in a superb location, well equipped and amazing welcome gifts.

Definitely recommended!

Thank you for the lovely gifts.

Beautiful location and idyllic views across Whitsand Bay. The cottage has everything you may need cleverly hidden away. Great location for beach walks as well as exploring the rest of Cornwall. We loved the interior of the retreat and even having bad weather did not affect our holiday as we were able to sit in the warm retreat with a cosy fire and look out over the bay. It was the relaxing stay that we wanted and felt like a very special place to be!

We had a fabulous honeymoon at Sealight. The location was amazing and we had everything we needed in the cottage, clean and tidy and loved watching the sun go down whilst in the hot tub!

We had a fabulous time during our stay at Sealight. The retreat is small but perfect and had everything we needed. The hot tub is fabulous and so relaxing, we loved using it after a busy day out.

Nothing to add

This was just the break we needed, in a beautiful location, in a lovely little cabin that had everything you needed. Upon arrival greeted with a clean and tidy cabin, made even better with the fresh bread, Prosecco and food essentials in the fridge! We had everything we needed our whole stay, with added benefits of a hot tub over looking the bay. We took our dog with us and it was really nice to see a small crate with doggy essentials when we arrived, the space is easily enough for two people and dog for a week. Would recommended to anyone looking for a quiet stay in Cornwall.

Very comfortable with top quality furnishings and utensils.

Stunning location

Sealight was perfect in every way with outstanding views of the stunning coastline at Whitsand bay. Relaxing, quiet and only a short walk down the beach. Fabulous .

Absolutely amazing! We fell in love with the location and the retreat. We loved the extra thoughtful bits like slippers, dog towels, the welcome gifts and charcoal etc. The views were incredible and having the hot tub on the deck made the stay! We were so impressed and we would definitely stay again. The cottage was immaculate, the decor is cute and cosy. There was everything you would need at the retreat, the location is perfect, a 2 minute stroll down to the beach and you can walk for far along the coastal paths and beaches when the tide is out. We would also highly recommend The View restaurant up the road - amazing food and amazing views!
