Occupying an elevated yet private position with outstanding views across Falmouth Harbour, Seabien is the perfect spot from which to enjoy the daily spectacle of craft in the bay. Newly refurbished, this light and spacious bungalow has ample accommodation for four guests with a modern feel complemented by original artworks.
The property is within easy walking distance of the centre of the town which welcomes sailing enthusiasts, artists and students as well as holiday makers to enjoy the many cafes, bars, restaurants and individual shops which line the streets.
Falmouth is also home to two sandy beaches; Gyllyngvase which is one of six with blue flag status in Cornwall and Swanpool, both of which have a good cafe/restaurant. Just a mile further west is a larger beach at Maenporth. Pleasure boat trips depart daily from the town quay taking in the hidden creeks of the Carrick Roads or across to the pretty village of St Mawes on the Roseland Peninsula; a delightful spot to enjoy a drink or meal in one of the waterfront hotels.
Hidden from view, Seabien is in a charming residential street just a few minutes' walk from the town centre; a sloping driveway and flight of steps lead down to the entrance. The accommodation is light and airy with a bay window in the living room affording spectacular views of the harbour. A few steps lead down to the two pretty bedrooms; a spacious double bedroom with 5' bed and en-suite bathroom plus a twin bedroom together with a family bathroom making this the ideal base for couples or small families.
