Sue and her group had a magical time at Seymour Tower in August and shared their experience with us.

"The 7 of us ranged from 11 to 70 in age so we were quite diverse in our natures, but there was not a boring moment!

As there are steep granite steps up to the base of the tower, a steep metal ladder to the “living” room and 2 further steep wooden steps up the the bunk room and on to the roof and deluxe loo, this is not a holiday for anyone apart from the agile!

Cooking (in the well equipped kitchen) ranged from spaghetti bol, and soup to bacon and eggs, with lots of chocolate in between.

We had a Bar B Q (brought by boat by one of the party), looking out to the setting sun and the noisy incoming tide: Magic!

We all slept like logs: prepare yourself for bunk beds so visitors must be fairly well acquainted with each other.

Sadly no dogs allowed (quite rightly as it turned out as “Timmy”, also known as Poli weighs 72 kgms and is very ancient!))

We swam, went low water, line and rod fishing (no fish caught, but not through want of trying), used a paddle board, ribski and motorised dinghy or just sat in the sun watching the tides going in and out. We also star-gazed. We were blessed with the best weather and so pleased we had not booked the week before when the wind got up to F6-7 and the rain pelted down!

Nick Jouault was a great guide and we were extremely grateful for his guidance and knowledge"
