From spa hotels to family friendly seaside breaks A good swimming pool is one of the great assets of a fine hotel, especially one you are visiting for real, meaningful time out, and in Cornwall that is most definitely the name of the game. Whether you're visiting on a family holiday and want to be within easy reach of the exceptional beaches that the South West has to offer, or are looking for a spa hotel break to really relax in quiet style. Or perhaps you are more interested in a destination with really excellent food, brought in from the surrounding area; Cornwall is definitely a superb place for local produce and restaurants with rooms. It also offers superb locations for hotels with pools. Take, for example, the luxurious but family friendly Bedruthan Hotel and Spa. With a choice of both indoor and outdoor swimming pools, it is fun and friendly, but it is also home to a spa and fitness facilities – a sensory spa garden that takes visitors from cedar wood sauna to seaweed-and-salt scrub. Meanwhile, The Scarlet in Mawgan Porth has a reputation that stretches across the world for its clean, contemporary style and eco credentials as well as its superb spa overlooking a classic Cornish bay. Its pools are a central part of the experience - again both inside and out, and offer a perfectly relaxing space after a day roaming the South West Coast Path. For those looking for a hotel with a good story, The Headland Hotel, which overlooks Fistral Beach, was the setting for the film of Roald Dahl's The Witches, starring Anjelica Houston. It also has a majestic swimming pool, although many a guest prefers to brave the chilly waters of the sea, especially when surf's up! Equally, those looking for an outdoor adventure Watergate Bay Hotel on the North Cornwall coast is perfectly situated for surfing lessons as well as a jolly good walk by the sea.
