Creative outpost on a clifftop
Bedruthan is the sister hotel and neighbour of the grown-ups-only Scarlet Hotel, and shares its stylish vibe. A swish spa for adults is paired with plenty to keep kids entertained, while everyone will enjoy the quality cooking.
Its two popular restaurants have recently been refreshed and rebranded. Plant, Fish and Grill at The Wild Café is a friendly, brightly coloured clifftop cafe serving natural, nourishing fare which will appeal to all the family.
Ogo (‘cave’ in Cornish) replaces The Herring, and it’s here that head chef George Richardson creates a line-up of dishes that puts Cornwall’s abundant produce front and centre. It’s a veritable feast of sea, garden and field, and a showcase of hyper-seasonal sustainable dining.
Begin with a sharing selection for the table, including the likes of citrus-cured sea trout taco and duck liver parfait, followed by steamed Cornish brill with Champagne, mussels and sea herbs. Local suppliers include Padstow Kitchen Garden, Primrose Herd, Mora Farm in the Fowey Valley and Trewithen Dairy.
The hotel has been in the same family for over 60 years, with architecture evoking California and furnishings imported from Denmark long before Scandi style became popular. The golden sands of Mawgan Porth beach are a mere stone’s throw away. The hotel is dog-friendly and canine companions will love a bracing walk along the South West Coast Path to view the famous Bedruthan Steps rock formation.
