Our favourite rooms
Go for a beachy and breezy blue-and-white Beach Hut Suite for the most cat-swinging most space. They have white wooden floors, handmade feather sofas and a very wide bed, as well as their own patch of the motel-style decking outside. Fans of a good bed need look no further than a Double – each comes with a king-size number made from recycled wood.
Blue, white and beige to blend in with your coastal surrounds; beach-proof shoes suited to a hilly ramble.
Camber, the owner’s dog, is very friendly – beware, he has a penchant for licking.
For £20 a night, dogs of any size are allowed in the Biggest Rooms but mucky paws on the furnishings are frowned upon. Dog bowls and baskets can be supplied on request and no pets are allowed in the Bistro.
Extra beds are £20. Under-12s can dine in the restaurant between 6pm and 6.30pm. The hotel has a list of reliable local babysitters for guests to contact independently.
Almost all (95 per cent) kitchen ingredients are sourced within 20 miles of the hotel, making its food miles pretty negligible. And all the furniture was made by a local wood-recycling business.
