Situated on Cornwall’s Lizard Peninsula with breath taking views across the Atlantic, Polurrian on the Lizard is a place where vintage glamour meets coastal-contemporary. Retaining an air of elegance in an unfussy yet friendly way, this spectacular clifftop hangout is every bit as welcoming now as it was when it first opened as a fashionable railway hotel in the 1890s. Boasting its own beach, this stylish property sits within attractive lawned gardens complete with a winding path leading down to secluded Polurrian Cove below. The restaurant specialises in Mediterranean- inspired dishes using the finest seasonal local ingredients and classic hand-stretched pizzas are made in the wood-fired Gozney oven. Artisan drinks and enticing cocktails with a Cornish twist are perfect for sipping at the bar, as the sun sets or in the Vista Lounge, which has panoramic ocean views. With easy access to the South West Coast Path, a cliff-top tennis court, indoor and outdoor pools and 12 acres of grounds, the hotel is ideal for anyone who loves the great outdoors. For total relaxation, head to the health club for Elemis treatments and yoga classes.
