Bedruthan has the lot – stunning sea views, a couple of swimming pools, a spa with treatment rooms and restaurants galore. The sensory spa garden offers seven steps to heaven: a salt scrub; a sauna; a cold bucket shower; a dip in the hot tub; a wet scrub; a visit to the sky garden; a second bite at the hot tub. Adults get the run of the place in school time, then children come in the holidays and sign up to surf school. Qualified staff entertain younger children with fun crafty stuff or they can tire themselves out in the soft play area while their parents snooze on sunbeds by the pool. There’s a wood-burner in the quiet sitting room, a cocktail bar that opens onto a terrace, then stylish bedrooms with retro colours and sparkling bathrooms. Some have separate rooms for children, others have terraces or sea views, a few overlook the car park. Younger children have early suppers, adults return later for a slap-up meal, perhaps guinea fowl, whole lemon sole, chilled strawberry soup with prosecco sorbet. The beach is a short stroll.
