Bother not looking anywhere else if you want a family friendly B and B suited for young, old and surfer dudes!
We enjoyed 2 nights in their recently completed 3 aspect top floor 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment and it was unbelievable. Kate, from start to end was so helpful and friendly including recommending dinner on Wednesday night in a place only to be discovered and mentioned……you’ll have to ask Kate!
My family was very lucky to be one of the first guests to stay in the newly added Loft apartment at Seavista. In fact we were the second only guests to benefit from this excellent space.
I enquired about 2 B&B rooms several months ago but was offered the chance to stay in the yet to be completed ‘Loft’. I was so glad that I went for this option. The front door opens up into an extremely spacious open plan living area with well appointed lounge, dining area and exceptional kitchen fitted with Smeg fridge-freezer and range oven. The Loft comes complete with full size dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer & drying cupboard. The lounge boasts a huge window offering spectacular views of the bay at Mawgan Porth, but if views aren’t your thing the large smart TV is a great feature.
Leading out of the living area you enter a hallway which leads to the first bedroom. This is a good sized twin room with its own bathroom (complete with bath and underfloor heating). Further along is the master bedroom. This is a beautiful and spacious room with a double bed and en-suite shower room. There is more than enough storage in both rooms to comfortably unpack for a two week holiday. Both rooms also share that same magnificent view of the bay below.
The whole of the Loft has been finished to an extremely high standard using a blend of cutting edge design whilst keeping with the Cornish look and feel which Seavista delivers in buckets.
Accommodation of this quality needs service to match and on this the Seavista team led by Kate delivers 110%. Every member of the Seavista team I interacted with before and during our stay was simply superb. Delightful, friendly, helpful and distinctly aware of what great customer service is.
The little touches but significant gesture like the welcome pack we received when entering the Loft was superb. A selection of cake and biscuit treats to complement the already supplied tea and coffee, but the bread, milk and eggs to get us on our way for breakfasts; brilliant and very gratefully received. The honesty bar in the main lounge is also a great touch and one my youngest daughter couldn’t wait to take advantage of!
Finally, breakfast. Surely this couldn’t be brilliant too? Well it was. Absolutely one of the best breakfast offerings around. Greeted by friendly staff who see it as a pleasure to serve you, the menu offers the full ‘Cornish’ breakfast which I can highly recommend, but they also offer excellent waffles which were a special during our stay and were taken up by my daughters who rated them extremely highly indeed. They are freshly prepared to order and were obviously homemade and fresh. A brilliant offering for teen diners. The smoothies they enjoyed were also great and a good way to get some vitamins into the waffle based breakfast. I also enjoyed the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on my last day, this too was excellent. The dining room itself is a really pleasantly designed area and the service is very relaxed – perfect for holiday breakfast time.
I will be back, it’s just finding the opportunity to make it back down to Cornwall again. But based on this experience, I will be planning a special trip with my family simply to stay at Seavista again. Exceptional in every way.
As a rough guide, Newquay airport is about 5-10 mins away but there was no plane noise at all during our stay. Watergate bay is a 2 min drive, Newquay around 10 minutes and Truro 45 mins.

Great place to stay. Staff are very welcoming and friendly and the breakfast is great with lots of choice. The view from Room 5 is beautiful. The room is very clean and beautifully decorated. Would definitely recommend Seavista
Didn’t arrive untill 11pm, called on way down to let them know and when we got there Kate had waited up so we could check in where the honesty bar was also very welcoming. When we got up in the morning we were welcomed with a fantastic breakfast and amazing views over the bay. We thought the B&B had been renovated for this season as it was absolutly spotless but after speaking to Kate at breakfast we found out it was done 2-3 years ago which shows how well they care for it and look after everything. Had to make this trip for work but will be returning with the missus.
This is our 3rd stay at Seavista including staying in the lodge.. Again we had a fantastic stay and enjoyed every moment we were there. It’s a wonderful tranquil place and you have to stay there to experience it. Kate and ozzy are doing themselves proud and we will continue to revisit and hopefully even stay in the loft apartment ☺️
My husband and I stayed at seavista for a few days of rest and relaxation. It is truly a beautiful place. The room was decorated perfectly and was bright and welcoming. Kate (the owner) was amazing and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was by the far the best we have had at a b n b. We will definitely be returning.
We had an excellent stay. Weather perfect, sea view room and the extra of a birthday cake for my partner was arranged.
We loved the breakfast and the staff serving very friendly.
We really enjoyed sitting in the lounge taking photos and watching the view.
Kate thank you!
You made our stay great and again sorry I did not see you! We will be down with little man to be too
My girlfriend and I stayed here prior to a two night stay at the nearby Bedruthan Steps hotel and will definitely be returning. First off, the B&B is set in a superb location with fantastic views of Mawgan Porth beach boasting facilities such as a well stocked ‘honesty bar’, reliable Wifi, lovely communal lounge and a small outside seating area that overlooks the beach.
The owner is extremely friendly/approachable and couldn’t do enough for us. Upon our arrival we had a lovely cup of tea with a homemade slice of lemon cake which was delicious and were given numerous recommendations on where to go for a meal / drink in the local area. All the communal areas were spotless and the whole place had a good ‘clean’ feel to it.
The bedroom was spacious with everything we needed in it and was well equipped with tea/coffee/hot chocolate making facilities. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in and the bathroom was amazing with a lovely shower and light up mirror. Our bedroom had a funky beach theme which gave my girlfriend and I a real feeling of being on holiday and away on a break. There was a large Samsung television in the room if we wanted to watch it and also two comfortable chairs. After our night out in Mawgan Porth we returned and made use of the honesty bar which stocks a good range of drinks at amazing prices. We chose to have ours outside listening to the sea.
In the morning we had a lovely cooked breakfast with locally sourced produce served by another member of staff who had excellent customer service skills. The room where breakfast is served is lovely and also boasts sea views on some of the tables. I’m a lad who likes his food and there was more than enough on the plate for me and I didn’t need to eat again until the following evening! All the food tasted fresh and there was no grease on the plate. As well as the cooked option, the menu boasts a variety of different options including a breakfast smoothie and numerous cereals etc.
As customers, considering our stay and the numerous facilities the B&B has to offer, the phrase ‘value for money’ doesn’t even come close and we will DEFINITELY be returning. I have included some photographs to show our room and the other areas around the B&B.
“Very High standards”
We have just returned from Seavista and initially chose this accommodation because of the good reviews.Luckily the reviews proved to be correct Mawgan Porth is an easy five minute walk down the hill.The accommodation is immaculate and very well loved.There is a good choice at breakfast which was fresh ,good quality local ingredients and very well presented.The views from the accommodation are wonderful,really pretty and you will struggle to find accommodation with such a view and a huge deck where you can enjoy a Pims or something from the bar.The lady who served us at breakfast was lovely and nothing was too much trouble.If you want to stay in Mawgan Porth then you will struggle to stay anywhere better.Book early to avoid disappointment. Happy holidays xxx Oh yes Thank you for topping our yummy biscuits up each morning

“Just keep coming back”
My 4th visit to the Wonderful Seavista! I love everything about it, stayed in room 5, a generous sized room with incredible sea views. Always spotlessly clean. Kate & Carol are so welcoming and it really does feel like a home from home. Arrived to a pot of tea and homemade lemon cake..yum!
Great selection for breakfast, full ‘Cornish’ or something lighter if you prefer, smoothies or granola, my fav. this time was the smoked salmon & scrambled egg.
Honesty bar is a great idea after a hard day on the beach or that long cliff walk 😉
Will definately be going back! Would HIGHLY recommend.
