CHARACTER & STYLE

This adults-only hotel has a timeless charm, combining heritage and modern touches. Originally two distinct houses, the addition of a corridor in the 1920s has connected the buildings, resulting in a lovingly-restored period seaside retreat that captures the essence of its former splendour. There's a design-focused spa, spacious dining room, palm-fringed gardens and unparalleled sea views.

THE FACILITIES

There's a gorgeous spa and beautifully-maintained, gently sloping lawns. During the summer months, take pleasure in the heated outdoor pool, providing a refreshing escape. Relax and relish the personalised and attentive service whilst immersing yourself in the ambience of the two open-plan lounges. Alternatively, unwind in the inviting bar area and savour your preferred beverage, allowing yourself to truly soak up the surroundings.
