Padstow Harbour Hotel, Padstow, Cornwall
A light, bright and bold Victorian boutique hotel, with the eastern façade reinvented as a grand Venetian palazzo; Padstow Harbour Hotel is the new dockside offering in this popular fishing port, with views across the camel Estuary, towards Rock. The modernised space cleverly fuses a little luxury with lashings of coastal charm, providing a cheerful escape for all the family. Experiences lie at the heart of the Harbour's ethos, where guests are invited to relax, but also to get out and about in the idyllic surroundings and try out activities from surf lessons and cycle rides to fishing trips and picnics - the team make these especially effortless, with sumptuous spreads made up by the chefs, as well as transfers to the local beauty spots.
Cycling along the Camel Valley Trail, tracing the river inland five miles to Wadebridge, is a superb way to take in the surrounding sights.
