  • "Lovely property and accomodation very good."

    Reviewed by SteveMay 2022

  • "The house was fantastic, plenty of room for all."

    The bedrooms were great, showers were lovely and the views are amazing. The kitchen has everything you need. It was mainly clean however it does need an overall clean as there were cobwebs indoors and stairs were dirty on arrival. The lawns had recently been mowed so It was hard to keep indoors clean as we kept walking grass in onto the tiled floors.The house echoes a lot so it’s difficult to sleep if others are noisy.

  • "The property is in an excellent location."

    The house is well equipped and furnished. We had a couple of minor issues which were sorted out very quickly by Tom the caretaker. Our only observation is that the shower floors can be slippery when wet and would benefit from some sort of shower mat. Apart from this we would highly recommend the property

  • "Fantastic location and facilities with plenty of room and light for everyone to make the most of the outstanding views of Fowey and the estuary - and the sunsets."

    Kitchen and bathrooms were wonderful with excellent provision and the hamper was generous and much appreciated. A shame that the behaviours of some previous holiday-makers had given cause for stern notices around the house (and legal responsibilities emphasised in the welcome book) which slightly diminished the feeling of friendliness and hospitality, but Tom and the gardener (and both next-door neighbours) were very friendly - as were the locals around the village - and the parking arrangements were a brilliant bonus for Polruan.

  • "Fabulous house in a fabulous location!"

    ! Seascape is fantastic and a credit to its owner. Very well designed and planned to make the most of the stunning location; it is equipped with the best of everything. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property!!

    Thank you Martin, we know how important holiday breaks are and try to do our best. Thank you for your positive review. Property Owner

  • "We booked this property over the Christmas period and had a lovely week."

    There were a few niggles with the property but as we did not bring these up with the owner at the time, I do not feel it is fair to bring these up at this point. In our naivety as it was Xmas week, we took it on ourselves to sort any problems we came across, and if there is one thing that this experience has taught us, is to never do that again! We were gutted to receive an email a couple of days later, on our return, in which our family was accused of damage to the property due to 'Utter negligence and carelessness' Never in our years of renting holiday homes have we come across such an unprofessional and outright rude set up and I can only advise anyone renting this property to take photos on your arrival in order to prevent this happening to anyone else. There is damage to the property as the owners make you aware of this in the welcome pack and looking back the way they expressed themselves in this note should have been a warning sign. Such a shame!

  • "This house really has the wow factor!"

    Best place we’ve stayed in, and we’ve rented many holiday homes. The hamper and goodies in the fridge were very welcome. Only slight niggles were that we couldn’t adjust the heating and it was too warm also more importantly there wasn’t enough hot water. The dinner plates were too big for the dishwasher so had to hand wash them. We couldn’t find any information about recycling either. There weren’t any bath mats and no bath sheets but as I say these were minor points, the place was very well equipped and clean. Thank you.

    Dear Mrs Laramy, thank you for your kind comments. As the house has large windows and the sun has been on them then the house will heat up. This can be limited by using the blinds or opening the velux roof windows which can be carried out electronically from the wall pad. You cannot adjust the heating if it is not on. The room stats show the room temperature as it is and not a temperature being called for from the heating. I do not know of any property with more hot water storage and has always proved more than adequate on all four houses which have the same system..The plates have always fitted when we have used the dishwasher although only on the lower tray.

  • "Luxury holiday home with breathtaking views of Fowey & the river."

    Very spacious living accommodation and bedrooms. All modern appliances plus sauna, pool table with a choice of gas or charcoal BBQs. Fantastic coastal walks nearby.

  • "Wow..."

    What a fabulous house! So spacious with spectacular views. The welcome hamper and toiletries were such a lovely touch. The kitchen was very well equipped. Unfortunately the weather wasnt great during our stay, which was a shame as we didnt get to use the outside space as much as we'd have liked. Just be aware there's a very steep hill to and from the ferry to Fowey and driving to the property the roads are very narrow but well worth the journey! We would have no hesitation in booking this property again, it was perfect for our first family holiday of 2021!

  • "Great location, fantastic views and high quality accommodation."

    Blinds need minor attention but otherwise difficult to fault. Welcome package was most impressive of any we experienced so far. We will be a walking advert for Sykes cottages in general and this property in particular.

Proudly overlooking this bustling fishing village with far reaching views across the River Fowey and English Channel, is this fabulous holiday home, Seascape.

Beautifully styled throughout with chic interiors and ultra-sleek appliances, this gorgeous abode is sure to add a touch of luxury to your self-catering stay, no matter the occasion!

Entertain your friends and family with drinks at the breakfast bar, as you take to the impressive double oven and electric hob to prepare a grand feast for all to enjoy whilst gathered at the sociable dining table.

Continue the evenings festivities with a digestif out on the balcony, or retire to the warmth of the attractive sitting room as you snuggle up on the large corner sofa and watch all of your favourite movies on the Smart TV.

Take the staircase down to the lower-ground-floor where you can challenge loved ones to a game of pool in the cinema/games room, or a quick round on the PlayStation.

Back upstairs a handy utility room provides the perfect space to keep on top of the laundry throughout your stay.

Completing the interior of this sumptuous property are five bright and airy bedrooms comprised of a king-size, a double and a twin on the ground floor, and two king-size bedrooms resting on the lower ground floor.

Each of the bedrooms is finished with crisp white bedding and a bright and airy en-suite, as well as boasting views of the encompassing coast and countryside.

Outside, you can choose to dine alfresco with lunch out on the patio as you indulge in a refreshing glass of white wine and watch as boats bob happily in the waters below, or why not grab your finest beach gear and head to sandy shores of the National Trust owned Lantic Bay, before setting about on a breath-taking hike along the South West Coast Path to see landmarks such as Chapel Pool and the imposing ruins of St Catherine's Castle?

Also in Fowey, the incredible Fowey Estuary and Whitehouse Quay are well-worth a visit, whilst the Bird Lady of Fowey offers an animal encounter like never before.

Venture into the town of St Austell to see the collection of ancient artefacts at Shipwreck Treasure Museum or wander the colourful lawns of Pinetum Gardens, before heading inland to the Victorian China museum of Wheal Martyn.

Explore the Polperro Model Village and The Lost Gardens Heligan, and get up-close to the majestic creatures that call Porfell Wildlife Park and Sanctuary home.

With all of this and so much more awaiting your arrival, be sure to book a stay at Seascape.

About the location


Polperro 6.5 miles; Looe 10 miles; Lostwithiel 10 miles.

Polruan is a small fishing village situated on a steep hill on the Fowey estuary, made famous by the author Daphne du Maurier. It remains unspoilt and retains the atmosphere of an old boat building community and has a small beach. The Polruan chain tower known as Polruan Blockhouse is one of only five known to exist in England, and is a small structure built beside a river or harbour to house the mechanism for raising and lowering a defensive chain to prevent the passage of ships in times of danger. It and the chain tower on the opposite bank of the River Fowey are the earliest chain towers to have been constructed. The village has a Post Office, local store, gift shop and pubs. A five minute ferry ride will take you to Fowey, with a range of sophisticated shops and restaurants. In August, the Fowey Regatta is a fun-filled week of activities and events, including RNLI displays, a carnival, spectacular firework displays and a display of classic yachts.
