Good Hotel Guide Review
‘We cannot fault The Henley – it is one of the best traditions of our lives,’ write regular visitors to Martyn Scarterfield and Petra Lampe’s Edwardian holiday cottage, from which a cliff path leads to the beach. ‘Indeed a home away from home,’ concur other Guide readers. ‘We felt like house guests rather than hotel clients.’ ‘Martyn has just the right approach, and Petra is so charming at all times.’ Public areas (‘a great environment for friendly chats with the other guests’) are filled with ‘many homely touches’: potted palms, rattan chairs, a wood-burning stove, and plenty to read – if you can tear your eyes away from the ‘fabulous views’ of the sea and the Avon estuary. The bedrooms are traditionally styled. ‘Ours was large, with a sea view and ample light for reading.’ ‘Inventive and delicious’, the host’s three-course, limited-choice dinners, using freshly landed fish, are served in the conservatory (veggie options on request). Breakfast is ‘beautifully presented’. ‘Our spaniel was thrilled to be with Caspar, the owners’ Labrador, who waited outside the bedroom to be greeted each morning.’ ‘A special place.’ (Simon Rodway, Geoffrey and Sue Bignell, Steven Hur)
