Book

Seawhisper Castle is an impressive Art Deco house dating back to the 1920s with extensive views across to Godrevy and Porthkidney Sands. This amazing home with a castle type turret at each corner is something to behold, with its own grounds and gardens.

This house is ideal for large families with plenty of private and enclosed outdoor space, yet just a short distance from wonderful sandy beaches with great surf and the picturesque coastal path leading to St. Ives. The owners have thoughtfully furnished the house with art deco pieces, local and international artwork as well as being creative with driftwood, old rowing oars and a canoe! The huge expanse of sands at Porthkidney Beach is just a few minutes walk down the coastal path or the more well known Carbis Bay beach is also only a short walk from this wonderful family holiday home. Easily accessible by car makes exploring the wider area easy and the scenic costal train is the perfect way to reach St Ives and enjoy a meal out in one of the many eateries.

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.

Just had a fantastic holiday at sea whisper. The location is fabulous as are the gardens. The closeness of the station is an added bonus. Highly recommended.

Great house with stunning views. We will definitely return

Seawhisper was perfect for our stay. We were a party of 6 adults, two of them 18, so nearby St Ives by train was perfect for them, as was the close proximity to the beach. The views from the house are incredible and the location is fantastic. You can walk to St Ives in around half an hour, with Carbis Bay on route in around 10/15 mins for the train if preferred. Porthkidney beach was amazing and it was a joy to walk our dog for the 10 mins on the coastal path and through the dunes to the huge dog friendly beach. With the weather cooling in the evening the summer house was perfect for evening drinks, especially whilst barbecuing the mackerel we had caught in the morning!

Sea Whisper Castle is set in a truly stunning location. The gardens and seating areas allow you to have great views. We celebrated our sons 7th birthday there and he did feel like the King sat in the throne in his castle.

Absolutely gorgeous property and location! We had the most wonderful week here. Walking distance down to both Porthkidney Sands (though a bit of a rocky climb near the end) and also to Carbis Bay beach. The garden was lovely to retreat to after a day at the beach, with a Bbq and huge garden for kids to run around in. Definitely hope to be back!

Fabulous property set in stunning grounds with lovely views over the sea. Just a short walk to Carbis Bay Beach via a secluded path. The property contained everything we needed for our stay and was very clean. The garden was beautiful with numerous seating areas for relaxing and very well maintained. We all had an amazing time and will definitely be back.

An absolutely stunning house and garden in a superb location. Near enough to local facilities yet so tranquil and private. There is a quick route to the beach by turning left after crossing the railway line. But only accessible at low tide and over some rocks, where some of us were lucky enough to spot a seal.

Another brilliant holiday at Seawhisper Castle. The place was absolutely spotless and as lovely as ever. We had a great time in the gardens playing hide and seek and having BBqs. We had everything we needed in the kitchen. Views were spectacular and the sound of the sea is always there when you open the doors. So private with really beautiful tranquil gardens. It was stormy one night and it was amazing to watch it all from the living room windows! Loved the rocking chair ourtside! We spent time at Porth Kidney beach which our dog Minnie absolutely loved, we actually arrived at about 11am on the day of checking in and we headed straight to this beach as we had no where to go with the dog...and it was perfect. Amazing little cafe at the church on the walk to the beach with tables in the church yard. You can usually find parking by the church too. So by the time it was 3 o clock we'd already had a great day at the beach! Great to watch the tide coming in on there! We also spent time at Carbis Bay beach and Porthminster - Porthminster was great for boogy boarding in the waves! Had a great day out at St Michael's Mount which was about 20 minutes away. St Ives - we just got the train and was lovely as ever. So looking forward to returning next year. Its lovely to have a busy day at the beach with all the crowds then retreat back to Seawhisper for a rest in the lovely garden and take in the views. There is no better place to stay than this!

Another week at Sea Whisper Castle. Fabulous house in a fabulous location. Our family absolutely love staying here. More than highly recommended.

Great size and clean! Fantastic views. Lovely garden and secure for dogs. Porth Kidney (the nearest beach and dog friendly) is only accessible at low tide and then only for the agile. Carbis beach is a ten minutes walk and very accessible but dogs aren’t allowed. The branch line to St Ives runs between the property and the sea with trains passing every fifteen minutes and sounding their horn for the level pedestrian crossing although we didn’t find this annoying. Carbis Bay station is only a short walk and only £1 to St Ives which is far better than trying to park!

Property and location were exactly as described and once the heating was adjusted, provided a warm and comfortable base for our Christmas week.

Perfect place to relax and enjoy views - especially sunrise/moonrise subject to weather and time of year.

Sea Whisper Castle has a heavenly garden, the house is full of interesting things - we kept noticing more every day - and it has beautiful views. A place of great character and charm.

We had a fantastic, dreamy time at sea whisper castle. The place was plenty big enough for all 6 of us and we definitely didn't feel on top of one another. We actually spent quite a lot of time looking for each other in there! It was very homely and comfortable and the views were really breath taking. We used all the seating in the gardens at all different times of the day. Great location we walked to Carbis bay beach, train station and Porth Kidney beach from the house and it was great that Porth Kidney beach allowed dogs! St Ives at night in summer was just lovely. We couldn't have asked for a better holiday.

Lovely views from property. Nice big living room/dining room. Great kitchen. Amazing garden.

The cottage was out of this world. A fantastic location with amazing views. The interior was awesome and our overall stay was fantastic! We would definitely recommend this property for families and those looking for a pet friendly cottage. We absolutely loved it!

Lovely property in brilliant location - can’t wait to come back again next year !

Fabulous location with lots of room for a large family or group. Great access to walks and beaches.

Extremely well furnished house with lovely gardens and superb views

The cottage was suitable for a large family with a lovely garden - room for a football pitch.The cottage had stunning views and was envied by all who passed by. It was

Wonderful house , position and views. Very relaxing and peaceful but so close to amenities if needed. The proximity to the rail service to St Ives fantastic. We look forward to returning soon.

Just for it to be made clear that the property is all on one floor and that the lower part of the house is in fact being made into a one bedroom separate accommodation. The pictures all give you to understand you are renting it all. The lower property was a double garage (it appears) under the house!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments. You are quite right in pointing out that Seawhisper Castle is on the one floor. We are very sorry if that was not clear. The groundfloor apartment is undergoing refurbishment, but only outside of booking periods, with extensive soundproofing being added. We have now added a note on the description to highlight that the bottom half of Seawhisper Castle is a separate annexe, but currently there are no plans of this being in use during guest bookings. Any guest staying at Seawhisper Castle has full access to the grounds with no other guests occupying the ground floor property. Tanya, Customer Services.
