Good Hotel Guide Review
‘As superb and lovely as ever’, Martyn Scarterfield and Petra Lampe’s Edwardian holiday cottage turned guest house is ‘a home-away-from-home’ for many devoted returning visitors. ‘We’ve been coming here for years… It is all so relaxing and comfortable.’ A cliff path leads to the sandy beach on the Avon estuary, ‘wonderful for dogs (and humans)’. In public rooms there are potted plants in superabundance, paintings, books, flowers, a wood-burning stove. Bedrooms are entirely traditional. The owners’ Labrador is ‘as welcoming as his owners’. ‘Caspar still waits outside our door every morning to greet our dogs (and have biscuits).’ The dining room, with rattan chairs, potted palms, estuary views through a wall of windows, has the airy feel of a conservatory. Here, for residents only, Martyn cooks a limited-choice three-course dinner with local produce and locally landed fish. Typical dishes: fillet steak, Madeira and peppercorn sauce; pan-fried John Dory, lemongrass, marinated prawns. ‘The food is much better than at many London restaurants.’ At breakfast there are Aune Valley bacon and sausages, poached kippers, eggs Benedict, smoked salmon. Overall ‘absolute heaven!’ (Simon Rodway, and others)
