The property

The contrast of golden sands and clear blue waters framed by jagged headlands make the cove at Porthcurno a fabulous beach, and Seascape is within easy reach of this haven. This retreat has all the ingredients for a superb holiday bolt-hole, snuggled within a scenic peaceful valley creating the perfect environment for lazing by the sea, discovering the cliff paths and enjoying the stunning coastal views. The incredible Minack Theatre, carved from the granite cliff-face with dramatic backdrop of sea and sky is a magical site to visit or watch a performance. Land's End is just over three miles away with its majestic ruggedly natural landscape to be enjoyed in all weathers and cliff paths encompassing the Atlantic ocean. Visit the pretty fishing village of Mousehole, a 20 minute drive away with its quaint and timeless ambiance, with tiny harbour and charming streets of galleries, restaurants and traditional inns all serving fresh local fayre. The bustling port of Newlyn is alive with colourful boats and fishing vessels offering pleasure trips. On its shoulder sits the vibrant town of Penzance, on the south facing shores of Mount's Bay. Travel further around this arc of sand and visit Marazion, with its stretch of sandy beach overlooking the surreal St Michael's Mount. Ideally positioned for easy access to the beach, coastal footpath, tennis courts and museum.

Seascape is a ground floor apartment, part of a former hotel which has been sensitively converted within a detached building of three properties, with a shared garden. Light and bright with double aspect windows, pale porcelain tiled floor and an all white decor, the contemporary styled accommodation incorporates a living room with a dining area and smart kitchen. The bedroom has a comfortable, relaxing ambiance with a tastefully appointed en-suite shower room - perfect for washing sandy toes after a sunshine filled day by the sea.
