A quirky and luxurious hotel tucked into an idyllic bay between Looe and Polperro.

Bang on the South West Coast path, the Talland Bay Hotel is all about pure relaxation. Forget the trappings of spa treatments, indoor pools and sports facilities – here the focus is on glorious sea views, sub-tropical gardens, fine Cornish cuisine and lounging around in a quirky but luxurious environment. The rooms and suites have been individually decorated – there’s an airy seaside feel throughout, a roll-top bath in one, a sleigh bed in another – and many have gorgeous sea views and direct access to patio, terrace or garden. There's also a pretty big collection of local and international artwork, both in the rooms and dotted around the gardens. As well as a fine-dining restaurant, there’s a swanky brasserie in the sea-view conservatory (where the dishes are a little lighter but no less divine), and a very comfy bar too, which like the rest of the hotel is dog-friendly. Just as well: this is prime territory for strolling with your faithful hound, a short walk away from glistening Talland Bay – childhood haunt of Dame Judi Dench – from where the South West Coast path runs east to Looe (3.5 miles) and west to Polperro (2 miles).

Sweeping up a grand tally of awards, including 'Best Small Hotel in Cornwall’ a few years ago, and 'Best South West Restaurant' in 2017, this former family home proves that location, style and cuisine are all you need to relax and embrace the natural beauty and lifestyle this part of the world offers. The fab clifftop location and ocean backdrop would also look pretty good in wedding photos...just saying.
