Seaspray Log Cabin

Portholland, St Austell, Cornwall, England

Private log cabin perched on the cliff above Portholland. The perfect escape with only the sounds of the waves & birds, sleeps couple or 2+2.

Seaspray Log Cabin is perched on the cliffs overlooking the sea at East Portholland Bay on Cornwall's Roseland Peninsula and is surrounded by mature terraced gardens.

The approach to the cabin is an adventure in itself as it can only be reached on foot, by a fairly steep  but well maintained footpath a short distance from Seaspray Cottage, which is the last cottage on your left once your car has reached the sea. 

The cliff cabin is split into 2 areas: The front room accessed just off the decking area has large panoramic windows and glazed French doors bringing the outside in. Inside there is a glorious fat-bellied wood burner, wall mounted TV and WiFi. Moving through other glazed doors guests will find the bedroom/living area with a comfortable double sofa bed and bunk beds providing sleeping for 2 adults, and 2 children if required. The bunk beds are strong enough to support adult weight.  Off this room is a wet room with shower, basin and WC plus well equipped kitchen. The cabin has a no smoking policy. 

The stunning areas outside the cabin have been nurtured over many years by the owner. With many artistic touches, a totem pole oversees the grassy terraces, carved mushrooms and shell and stone sculptures peaking through the semi-tropical plants provide the perfect hide and seek places for the children to thoroughly enjoy. For alfresco dining, there is a BBQ so you can cook whilst taking in the breathtaking views of the sea and Portholland.

Seaspray Cliff Cabin is the perfect retreat for families who love an adventure with total privacy in natural surroundings.
