A while back The Gallivant decided it should be different. Not just a place to escape to but somewhere to reconnect with simple pleasures. To learn and experience new things. A welcoming home from home that you leave not simply sated but intrinsically happier. The sand between your toes, and sky and beach as far as you can see. Wonderful food made with love, deeply comfortable beds. The Gallivant is only open to overnight guests and a handful of members, giving everyone space and an enhanced sense of hospitality. Staying the night here includes everything you could want and a little bit more. Fortifying breakfasts, morning elevenses, English wine hour at 5pm and an exquisitely simple dinner. Most of the 20 bedrooms open onto the private coastal garden where you’ll find the Beach Hut mini spa for a restorative treatment. And adjoining the hotel is the new Summer House, where there’s a daily timetable of classes in everything from yoga and pilates to English wine tasting, hosted by experts in the field. All the classes are free for guests, so you have everything to gain and nothing to lose.

Doubles from £313 all inclusive
