The Premises 

Boskerris Hotel near St Ives has been around since the 1930s, but it’s only recently become so stylish. The renovation has traded faded seaside charm for some Mediterranean magic, with lots of glass, decking and crisp colours. Luckily, the views have stayed the same: lighthouse-filled sights worthy of featuring in a Virginia Woolf novel – and they did. (Please note that unfortunately there's no availability for July or August)

It’s got to be the Celebration room: as well as a sunken bath in the window overlooking the sea, it has double windows, a silk-adorned super king-size bed and its own wet room. For calm and tranquility, pick a Superior room – all three have a soothing colour palette.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

The restaurant cooks up fresh, local produce for supper throughout the week, except Sunday and Monday. Typical dishes include seared scallops with black pudding and apple puree or oven roasted hake fillet with lyonnaise potatoes, salsa verde and crispy kale. And no supper in these parts would be complete without homemade ice cream – try a scoop of white chocolate atop the decadent chocolate brownie.

Liquid Bliss 

The Boskerris Bar is small space perched above St Ives Bay. If all the bar stools and armchairs are occupied, slip next door to the sitting room or out onto the decked terrace. Sound-wise, expect a musical journey from Spanish guitar at breakfast to jazz in the evenings, with bossa nova beats in between.
