Lewinnick Lodge – Newquay, Cornwall

By Anoop Bhuller

1 year ago

Amid the craggy cliffs of Pentire, this family-run foodie bolthole near Newquay started out as servants quarters to nearby Cove House. But, today, under the direction of owners Pete and Jacqui Fair, it’s a cool restaurant with rooms. It’s all about the breath-taking ocean views here, which can be enjoyed from nearly every inch of this lovely lodge. Served in the buzzy cliffside restaurant, the exquisite seasonal menu fits right in, celebrating the best of Cornish ingredients with a tasty contemporary twist. Try the Lewinnick fish cake with sweet chilli jam and dressed rocket, followed by the seductive Cornish sea salt and fudge brownie. The 17 bedrooms are uncluttered and serene in Farrow & Ball pastel hues. All come with binoculars to soak up the staggering vistas. Book the super spacious Luxury Double, with its emperor-size bed, free-standing bath, lined with Bramley toiletries, and double windows that bring the outside in. Brought your four-legged friend? Then plump for the dog-friendly Headland Double. And don’t forget to check out sister hotel The Plume of Feathers, a 16th century pub with rooms, a short drive away.

Doubles from £269
