Good Hotel Guide Review
‘I have travelled widely but never stayed in a place where I truly felt I was with a close friend.’ Owner Susan Stuart ‘has created a real treat’, says a Guide regular after this year’s visit to the ‘beautifully restored listed house’. After ‘a great welcome and offer of tea and chocolate or fruit cake, to a chilled glass of Prosecco to wish us well on our journey, she goes far beyond what one would expect’ – including an introduction to the person behind the Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens. The former Georgian Admiral’s house is now a ‘beautifully appointed’ B&B with contemporary and antique furniture, fresh flowers, and a calming coastal palette. Bedrooms are ‘spacious and special, each one with a quirk’. A bathroom with retractable glass roof, contemporary four-poster, an egg-shaped in-room bath. ‘Our room on the top floor had lovely harbour views even from the shower.’ Susan’s ‘marvellous, impossibly good-value’ communal dinner includes produce from local butchers, farmers, fishmongers and vineyards. Breakfast is fresh ‘to the extent of the whole piece of fish being shown to my wife before cooking’. (David Soanes, David Britton)
