The hotel's An Evening With dinners are prepared by renowned guest chefs or hosted by local vineyard owners. Tom Aikens and Fleur McCree have taken the reins in the past, so it's a must-try gastronomic fête. Home-made cake and tea are served every day from 4pm to 5pm too.

Our favourite rooms
Go for a beachy and breezy blue-and-white Beach Hut Suite for the most cat-swinging 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. The hotel has four pet-friendly Biggest Rooms, but mucky paws on the furnishings are frowned upon. Dog bowls, baskets and biscuits are supplied. Pets are allowed in the bar (by day), but not the restaurant.
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 10 miles of the hotel, making its food miles pretty negligible. And most of the furniture was made by a local wood-recycling business.
