"fantastic property"

seashells is a well equipped,really comfortable airy and bright property that lacks nothing. Its in a brilliant position for all amenities including the lovely beach and right alongside the harbour. The owners are lovely and very welcoming and if needed (which i doubt you would) would be there in a flash to offer any help.
The only downside which isnt really a problem is the lack of a town in portreath,there are a few shops which include a convenience store and a fantastic bakery all within a short walk,and larger towns are just a short drive away.It isnt a deal breaker and we would happily revisit and definately stay at seashells as a fantastic stay was had by us all.
