You’re in a perfect spot here, smack-bang on the coastal path below Golden Cap; the Anchor is a thriving, lively inn that knows exactly how to make the most of its location. The big sun terrace and gardens overlook the pebbly beach; interiors evoke driftwood and nautical cosiness, with open fires around which you can enjoy a pint of Palmers and a crab sandwich, or a bowl of super fresh shellfish washed down with an excellent wine. If you’ve built up an appetite (there are walks from the doorstep) the menus will tempt you with inspiring, hearty and artisanal treats that make splendid use of locally sourced produce. Fish and lobsters direct from the beach make for the freshest of fresh dishes. Three bedrooms with deeply comfortable king-size beds are chic (a rusty tap as a coat hook, rope buoys, trunks turned into tables) with captivating sea views; you’ll think you’ve stepped aboard an 18th-century schooner. Bathrooms have roll-top baths, walk-in showers, the fluffiest of white towels and glorious tiling, with top-notch oils and soaps. Terrific.
