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.

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 perfect for lounging and comes complete with two reclining chairs, swinging chair and a hammock built for two, whilst the neat hedges offer privacy - perfect! There's an outside shower too to wash the sand off after a day at the beach.


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 shower for two (of course!) with oodles of hot water and a heated towel rail so you'll soon be toasty warm after a bracing cliff top walk.


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


One dog is welcome at Sealight. We charge £30 per week or short break.


There is parking available just a short walk from retreat.

In The Area

Sealight is tucked away on the edge of Whitsand Bay, which overlooks the stunning south-east Cornish ocean. This hidden corner of Cornwall is a real find, with gorgeous sea views and the pretty seaside villages of Kingsand, Cawsand, Looe and Polperro just a short drive away.

Head to the Devonport Inn in Kingsand for excellent food and fab local beer. The Carew Arms in Antony Village is also well worth a visit and has a farm shop and café too. For something special head to The View, perched on the cliffs of Whitsand Bay and with fish and seafood a real speciality.
