“Lovely house in beautiful area of Mawgan Porth”
Reviewed 5 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Lovely house. Light and airey, warm and very comfortable. We felt welcomed and at home as soon as we entered the house. Lovely views out to the beach and sea one way and out over Lanherne Vale the other. Easy access to the beach and local amenities. The house is like the Tardis much bigger inside than it looks from the outside.

“A real gem”
Reviewed 18 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We have just stayed for 3 nights at Sea Gem, in Mawgan Porth. A beautifully renovated house overlooking the bay. Fabulous views and easy access down to the beach. Everything you need for a perfect break is included, even down to the spa style slippers. We will definitely be back.

“Quite possibly the best place to stay on the North Cornish coast!”
Reviewed 18 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

If you are looking for a boutique feel in the perfect location, look no further. We loved Seagem, it is beond doubt the best place we have stayed on the North Cornish coast in both view/location and quality of finish/equipment, short of paying silly money you will not beat this.
The view from the balcony & lounge is nothing short of stunning and the access is straight onto the beach; we will be going back, and it will be again and again.
We nearly didnt post a review, only to keep it our brilliant secret! 5*

“Luxury accomodation with superb sea view”
Reviewed 5 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

people found this review helpful

Sea Gem nestles in the dunes above the beautiful beach at Mawgan Porth. Newly extended and refurbished for 2015 to the highest standard. Tasteful interior design with a layout that makes the most of the stunning view. The temptation is to sit and admire the view all day long, However, if you venture the one minute walk through the dunes onto the beach you will not regret it! At low tide the beach opens out to a huge expanse of golden sands scattered with 'lagoon like' rock pools and dramatic cliffs either side. Head off the beach and up onto those cliffs and enjoy the breathtaking coastal path. To your left, the majestic Watergate Bay ( approximately a comfortable 2 hr walk there and back) or to the right, the 'Jurassic like' Bedruthan steps (a comfortable 1 and 1/2 hr walk there and back but make sure you arrive at Bedruthan at low tide to enjoy the beach). In the village you will find a convenience store for your basics with large supermarkets in Newquay, just 15 minutes drive. If you want a really special treat then walk up the hill and dine at The Scarlet restaurant, this is out of this world and a short walk back via the beach at the end of the evening( remember your torch!) Carole and Anthony have put a great amount of effort into ensuring that Sea Gem is indeed a home from home experience. To us it is the perfect place, our only regret, we didn't stay for longer!
