The best thing about:

The hot tub overlooking the sea and the two acres of sub-tropical secret gardens.

The walk to the beach

Just a short walk less than 100 metres away


Built for an old sea captain because of its elevated position and outstanding ocean views, Far Horizon is located just 5 miles east of Looe and 4.5 miles from Whitsand Bay, sleeping up to eight guests. This bright and spacious beach house is wonderfully situated within two acres of sub-tropical gardens and 180-degree sea views across Seaton Beach and out towards Looe Island.

Seaton Beach is a large south facing shingle beach, just a stone's throw away with a lovely beach side cafe, restaurant and other amenities. When the tide is out, guests can wander along the promenade to the nearby Downderry Beach. If the tide is high, you'll see local fishermen casting out their lines and surfers riding the waves. Seaton beach is dog-friendly all year round and is a little known haven for surfers.

The sunsets at Far Horizon are magical and a great time to sit and relax on the balcony, in the hot tub, or one of the many seating areas in the garden.

Nearby beaches include Downderry, Portwrinkle, Looe, Whitsand Bay and Millendreath.

Guest comments

  • The house is so light and spacious and the setting is perfect. We really appreciated the Welcome pack with fresh flowers upon arrival.
    ES, August 2020

  • Exceeded our expectations in every respect. Stunning property in a beautiful location. Communication with the owner very swift, efficient and friendly. Lovely flowers, wines and sundries as a welcome pack a nice touch. We will book this place again and Beach Retreats have been great.

  • Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday: to be so close to the sea with wonderful views, great walks, a dog friendly beach and also to stay in such a warm and spacious house was a dream
    GPL, October 2020

  • The most beautiful house you can imagine. We cried with joy when we arrived! Thank you so much.
    MJ, August 2020

  • We absolutely loved our stay in Far Horizon, a beautiful house, lovely location and spectacular views! Loved it!
    LW, October 2020

  • We would struggle to find a house with such wonderful views anywhere else. So we think we'll be coming back yearly for many more years
    SM, September 2020

  • Amazing holiday at Far Horizon! Beautiful views, great location very much a home from home
    LW. September 2020

  • It really doesn't get much better than this in Cornwall! A beautiful, light, spacious and comfortable house with absolutely stunning sea views from every room. We would spend hours sitting and watching the waves roll in, mesmerised by the ever changing Cornish light. Relaxing in the hot tub whilst perched on a cliff looking out to the sea below or gazing up at the stars at night, was an experience we will never forget! The house was well equipped with lovely finishing touches for Christmas. We were sad to leave, but look forward to returning soon. The hosts were an absolute pleasure to deal with. If you love the sea, you will be blown away by this house.

  • We arrived at this beautiful house and saw the amazing views. We thought we were abroad! A lovely large house with all the right facilities and utensils. It was a priviledge to stay here.
    PJ, April 2019

  • We all needed a much needed break and Far Horizon gave us that and so much more. The house feels like a home from home the minute you walk through the door. We are taking away very fond memories.
