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 Cornwall

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.

Beautiful Castle Apartment With Stunning Sea Views Sleeps 4

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.
