About Timothy Abbott - Cornish Seaview Cottages

Hello, I run a holiday company called Cornish Seaview Cottages which advertises cottages in Cornwall. We now have a few more properties in France and our Cornish properties are also growing in number. As a small friendly company we have many loyal customers who enjoy staying in our properties and return year after year. We now look forward to welcoming you.

Why Timothy Abbott - Cornish Seaview Cottages chose Perranuthnoe

Acton Castle is a very special place with the most amazing views out to sea. Sat alone surrounded by countryside with the ocean out infront, on a sunny day the views are simply breathtaking. Its a shame we can't capture this in a photo so please book a week and experience it for yourself!

What makes this castle unique

Stunning ocean views.

Grade !! listed building 17th Century Castle.

Excellent location within walking distance of secret coves and only a short drive to Penzance, St Michaels Mount and Mousehole.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Lovely spacious flat with wonderful view out to sea over fields. We could even see St Michael's on the Mount. Amazing skies and birds and a feeling of seclusion and being off the beaten track. Very nicely kept ornamental garden and pond out front so we could lie in bed on the lower floor and still see the garden. Clean and well equipped this is a very special place. Lots of piping hot water though the ensuite shower could do with an update, it's a bit of a squeeze. All the things that matter on a holiday like this were in place so we felt very happy with our stay. Very unusual building and spot. Lovely walks and very hilly! Loved it.

Cosy, characterful & spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

On arrival, we wondered if the apartment could possibly be as good as the view. It was. Kitchen was well-equipped, well laid-out, and big enough to allow two people to cook. Bedroom was quiet and comfortable. Sitting room lovely and spacious, with two magnificent big sofas. The property has quirky architectural charm in spadefuls, but it also feels welcoming. Direct access to coast path and plenty of superb coastal paths within easy reach.
