A family-focused, dog-friendly hotel on a cliff above glorious Mawgan Porth Beach. The building is retro but the vibe is modern with an emphasis on sustainability and wellbeing (think free yoga classes and craft workshops). There's plenty to keep children entertained and a spa for when you want time to yourself.

The hotel sits on a cliff above Mawgan Porth, a sandy beach with crashing waves, rockpools and caves. It's a quieter alternative to nearby Newquay but still has a lifeguard and surf school. The hotel's elevated position provides panoramic sea views and there are fabulous walks along this unspoilt stretch of coast.

By car: 1 hour 30 minutes from Exeter, under 3 hours from Bristol and 5 hours from London. Free parking on-site.

By train: London Paddington to Newquay takes around 5 hours. It's a 10-minute taxi to the hotel. Book trains to Newquay.

Once you step inside, the sea views make up for the hotel's uninspiring exterior. Rather than completely overhaul the building the owners have embraced its history with cheerful, retro-inspired scandi décor. Local crafts and art feature heavily and are on sale in the shop.


There's plenty to keep children busy, even on a rainy day, with an indoor soft play area, craft room and three pools (one indoor). If you'd rather escape the children for a while there's a second restaurant off-limits to under 5s and the option of a spa treatment.
