A stunning cliffside location is the setting for this collection of cottages, transformed by Olga Polizzi into a supremely elegant and understated hotel. Superb views of the Cornish coast and laidback nautical chic contribute to an atmosphere of refined luxury. The calm, airy restaurant, with its mosaic tiled floor and shell-like lighting is classy, with simple table settings and engaging, responsive staff. If you’re here in daylight it will be hard to drag yourself away from the views, so give yourself plenty of time for a lovely long lunch. The cooking matches the environment with a pleasing simplicity; the uncluttered dishes have a refreshing Mediterranean influence. Kick off with a couple of Porthilly oysters, or salt cod croquettes with sauce vierge – a very simple, confident dish, reassuring in its accuracy. Monkfish with piperade and black olives, or Launceston lamb with heritage carrots, beetroot and sauté potatoes, are satisfying main courses, and you can finish with burnt English custard with raspberries and a poppy seed tuile, or keep it simple with strawberries, clotted cream and ice cream sundae.
