Good Hotel Guide Review
On the cliff of a ‘stunningly beautiful’ cove, Susan and John Gladwin’s ‘superb’ Arts and Crafts hotel is a lovely coastal retreat with ‘friendly, well-trained’ staff. ‘Spectacular’ views from the subtropical gardens ‘seem to stretch to the sea’; to put your toes in the water, descend steep steps to the secluded sandy beach. Cheery, simply furnished bedrooms have a hospitality tray and DVD-player; the best have seating space and views of the sea. When the weather turns cool, sit by the fire in the lounge stocked with books and games. At lunch and dinner, try chef Adam Cawood’s ‘exceptionally good’ cooking using produce sourced straight from the sea or nearby farms. The Coastal Path runs past the end of the garden. Lounge, bar, restaurant (light jazz background music). Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). 2-acre garden (summer house). Children (cot; extra bed £15 per night) and dogs (under supervision) welcomed. 10 mins’ downhill walk to village. 15 bedrooms (3 on ground floor; family suite accessed from outside). Per room B&B £120–£260, D,B&B £170–£315. Closed end Nov–mid-Feb.
