myCornwall venture in to North Cornwall for a night at The Widemouth Manor Hotel.
The views across the incredibly long sandy beaches of Widemouth Bay, a beach known for its superb surfing conditions, are stunning and these plus the breathtaking cliff top walks nearby make Widemouth Manor Hotel an idyllic retreat.
Standing proudly on the headland for more than one hundred years and set within its own gardens, Widemouth Manor Hotel offers elegant dining in the superb main restaurant. The Sports bar, restaurant and lounge area have all been refurbished to the highest standards and the stylish decor in natural shades reflect the beautiful surroundings.
The menu is extensive and reflects the fact that the chefs use fresh and local produce. I opted for scallops to start with and they were simply delicious. These were followed by Grilled Fillet of Sea Bass and Black Tiger Prawns with Roasted Vegetable Cous-Cous & Chilli Tomato Dressing. The dish was beautifully presented and the flavours complimented each other beautifully.
It took me a while to decide on which desert to choose, as they were all very tempting. I went for the Ginger & Lime Bread & Butter pudding with Cornish Clotted Cream and was rather pleased I did as this alternative take on a traditional favourite was hands down one of the best deserts I have ever tasted.
The bedroom was comfortable and relaxing, and if you are seeking additional relaxation there’s massage or beauty treatments available at the Ocean Spa Treatment rooms along with bespoke retreats and spa packages.
The early morning sunrise streaming in through the windows encouraged me to leave the wonderfully comfortable bed and head downstairs for breakfast. Again the quality of the food was outstanding and having breakfast watching the beach and sea come to life was such a relaxing experience it was hard to leave.
All the staff at The Widemouth Manor understands the importance of creating that ‘ideal escape’ experience and their attention to detail made my stay unforgettable. The surrounding area offers an abundance of activities for those who enjoy outdoor adventure and stunning landscapes.
As mentioned earlier the miles of sandy beaches and invigorating cliff walks start only a few steps from the hotel and visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to attractions offered locally and throughout Cornwall as a whole.
