Good Hotel Guide Review

Close to heritage coast and sandy cove, this ‘delightful old mansion’, the Victorian pile that inspired Kenneth Grahame’s Toad Hall, is packed with ‘first-rate facilities’ for young and old. It is part of the Luxury Family Hotels group, whose ‘highly motivated staff want to make sure guests have a good time’. Children paint, splash, swing, tumble and squeal; grown-ups may book a spa treatment or soak in the hot tub looking towards the sea. There are ‘bee hotels’, and chickens to feed; Bramble, the house dog, willingly accompanies guests on a stroll or a scamper. ‘Large, well-furnished’ bedrooms in the main house and converted coach house across the courtyard are ‘a proper retreat if it all gets too much in the public spaces’. ‘Ours, warm and welcoming, had a delightful view across the garden to the harbour beyond.’ At mealtimes, a flexible approach suits all ages, too. Opt for an informal family meal in the early evening, or feed the young ones at children’s high tea, then turn on the in-room baby-listening service and come back for a candlelit dinner à deux. Before heading to the beach the next day, borrow fishing nets, buckets and spades. (AK-H)

Guest comments

'Fowey Hall ticked all boxes! Despite it being mid-December there were quite a few guests. We were upgraded to a large room upstairs in the old mansion. This had a delightful view across the garden to the harbour beyond. It had all the comforts including a super big bathroom, and it was all warm and welcoming. A big improvement was that this time adults-only breakfast was available in the small but quite adequate dining room. We totally applaud the way they cater for families. ' - AK - December, 2014
