  • "We absolutely loved our stay at Seagulls Nest."

    A fantastic chalet in the most incredible peaceful location. The chalet was clean and very comfortable with everything we needed. The views were outstanding and the steep walk to the most spectacular beach (EVER!) is 100% worth it. We would love to come back one day.

  • "Fabulous chalet in amazing location overlooking the sea."

    Very comfortable with everything thought of and provided for. Come prepared with your luggage in easily transportable bags, which makes the walk to the chalet much easier. Access to beach down steep steps but worth it, good for surfing, with lifeguards along the bay. Don't expect much of Eddyson's cafe on the beach but the Cliff Top cafe is well worth a visit for breakfast and lunch! Cawsands is a more sheltered beach and better for swimming and paddleboarding, and the best place to take a ferry to Plymouth.

  • "Less accessible than we thought and could do with a sign to show you where the cottage is."

    Folder needs updating as there is no longer a citroen saxo. Biggest issue was that there was no washing machine although the property is advertised with one.

    We would stay again! The beds were very comfortable. The living area was the best we’ve experienced having stayed at many different chalets on the cliff over the last 6 years. Thank you.

    A comfortable, cosy cabin on the cliff! With all amenities to help the stay go smoothly. It is now our ‘go to’ place for an absolute stress free break.

    The accommodation was it ok but I would say the interior looked a little dated and smaller than what the pictures show, the access to the property probably could of been described better as it is difficult to get to with suitcases etc, having said these had a lovely stay and these were the only minor points…

  • "Once you have understood you don't get a spot like this without a bit of a walk ." realise that every step was worth it. The view is amazing, in all weathers. Location is good although you do need a car to travel easily. Cosy cottage , really good for two with all the cooking utensils you require Ideal get away for peace, tranquility and the beauty of the Cornish coastline.

    It was a welcomed break from the fast paced life we lead in London. It was an ideal location/chalet to chill out and relax

  • "Seagull's nest is a hidden gem on the cliff top."

    The property is well looked after and is furnished to a high standard. It has everything you need; the shortcut to the beach was particularly handy, as were the body boards in the shed (we used these instead of ours because they were better than the ones we brought with us!). The washer was also a welcome treat. One thing we noticed was that there have been some improvements to the property which aren't shown on the pictures (such as the steel hand rail) and it would be worthwhile perhaps updating these on the website. The other thing that would be helpful is directions from the cliff path as we went past the chalet a couple of times before we found it. No complaints, we would definitely recommend! Thanks for a great week.

    The view of the sunsets from the window seat is an image i will carry with me for years. Every aspect of a guests needs have been thought through and there isn't anything I could say Steve and Paula haven't thought of in order to make it a comfortable stay. This was my four year old daughters first staycation and she still talks about her walks up and down to the beach from 'Steve's house' :)

  • "The view from the chalet was fantastic."

    We enjoyed sunshine and storms and stunning sunsets, all from the comfort of the sofa! It was also wonderful to be able to walk from the door following the coast path to Rame Head and Mount Edgcumbe. It took a few trips to carry all our luggage and food down the cliff path from the parking area, but well worth it to stay in an exiting and memorable location.

    The view is to die for & even in stormy November weather it was beautiful. We were snuggly warm - didn’t need the electric fire, the heating was great. The access is just as described & we came prepared with wellies and torches. Next time though we’ll cut down on luggage! Hosts gave us lots of advice before we arrived including a storm warning! Great week all round.

    Views are amazing, and it is a haven of peace and quiet. My wife organises a trip for me every year with Helpful Holidays/Sykes Cottages as she finds them really helpful and informative. Nothing is ever too much trouble. Next year I am booked into a cottage in Kingsand although I suspect I will also go back to Seagulls Nest later on in the year as well as she knows how much I love that area!! I have nothing but praise for this holiday company and they never disappoint!

  • "Hi seagulls nest was a lovely clean well catered chalet however the access to it was a bit much for my 81 year old mum unfortunately."

    Something I did question at time of booking! There are about 30 steps down to the cafe from the road and then a bit of a walk down hill, then across passed some chalets then more steps (some without rails) to the chalet, steps are also quite high. Also there are no signs for it nor is the chalet named, I think you need to stress this in the details. The actual chalet was exceptional well equipped and clean with good use of space.

Nearby is Mount Edgecombe Country Park and foot/car ferries to Plymouth.

A wonderful place, great for watching the sun rise.

About the location


Torpoint 5 miles.

Set in a bowl of hills at the head of a tidal creek that leads to the Hamoaze, opposite the great naval city of Plymouth, Millbrook is located on the Rame Peninsula, "Cornwall's Forgotten Corner". Bounded by the Lynher and Tamar rivers, the Hamoaze and the sea, the area is deeply rural and designated as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has a good range of shops and pubs, while close by are the pretty coastal villages of Kingsand and Cawsand, from which a ferry will take you to Plymouth. Along the southern edges of the peninsula are miles of beautiful walks with glorious views of Rame Head. Just a mile south of Millbrook lies Whitsand Bay with its miles of uncrowded sandy RNLI patrolled beach and dramatic cliffs. A superb base for discovering the wild side of Cornwall.

Note: About 100 yards of steep cliff footpath, ending in 24 steps, lead to it from the road.
Note - allocated parking for one car is available from 1 April - 30th September.

This property offers the following short breaks:
