“Stunning property”
Reviewed 8 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Expect to be wowed! It is difficult to describe this house without running out of superlatives. From the moment you step inside the door the furnishings are lovely and the view from the dining/living area is fabulous. The house is amazingly equipped from the coffee maker (fresh ground in the morning, fab!) to a glass for every drink or occasion. Two, yes two bbqs (gas for those in a hurry, charcoal (supplied) for those more patient) fabulous space outside for children and adults with stunning views. Lovely comfy beds and fluffy towels. In all Maggie and Allan have created a little paradise so good we ate in nearly every night, because, it seemed a waste of the wonderful view from the dining area. The weather was brilliant so we did not venture from the beautiful beaches at Bigbury. The children from18 months to 33 years loved every minute. The curry at the Pilchard Inn, very good. Highlights, too many to say, a holiday that will remain with us for a very very long time. Thanks Maggie & Allan

“One of the best views in the country.”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

You would be pushed to better the view from the panoramic windows in the living area in this well-appointed house. You will also lack for nothing in facilities and appliances, all tastefully chosen to create a relaxing, comfortable, modern living environment. We took our extended family, including six grandchildren, ranging in age from 13th months to almost 8 years old, to Seaview for a get-together to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary. They all had an idyllic time both on the beach (miles of soft, clean sand, exciting waves and plenty of rocks to climb), with one grand-daughter saying that she wanted to stay at Seaview, and that it was better than home! One minor drawback is that the hill is steep, and it is a long push back up to the house with a stroller laden with young children and beachgear. Saying that, there is a car park (a bit pricey though) at the bottom of the hill if you haven't got the energy.

“Great house, great views, great weather”
Reviewed 17 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Fabulous property with everything an extended family gathering would ever need. Celebrating an 80th birthday we needed to please ages from 18 to 80. The Seaview was perfect. We all took full advantage of the garden furniture and the beautiful views. The gas BBQ was well used and we really appreciated the beach games provided. The weather was amazing so being so close to the most beautiful beach was a huge benefit. Both Kingsbridge and Salcombe are lovely places to visit. The holiday was one of the best we have ever spent in the UK, thank you Seaview!

“Stunning Views”
Reviewed 10 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Superb modern accomodation with a stunning view from every room, A warm welcome from Alan and Maggie (The owners) along with traditional Deven tea welcome pack.
We found the property well equipped with everything you could possibly need, not forgetting the salad and herb garden.
All three of our families comfortably fitted in this spacious property, and the six teenagers were never bored. Plenty to do on the local clean beach and not far from other activities on offer.
