Good Hotel Guide Review
Tucked into a sloping street behind the harbour, this ‘achingly cool’ 17th-century house has ‘lovely staff’, ‘well-appointed bedrooms’ and ‘tasty breakfasts’. Typical of Justin and Charlotte Salisbury’s eclectic collection (see main entries for Artist Residence in London, Brighton and South Leigh, Oxfordshire), it brims with ‘intriguing artwork’ and vintage flourishes. Bedrooms, mildly eccentric, are all different: one is small; another has expansive views; a third, a hand-painted mural soaring up the walls and across the ceiling. Informal meals draw diners to the ‘quirky’ Cornish Barn restaurant, and fully stocked bar and smokehouse in the covered garden. ‘Doorsteps of sourdough bread; first-rate’ orange juice at breakfast.
