Polurrian on the Lizard – Mullion, Cornwall
Standing proud on the Lizard Peninsula, this one-time Victorian railway hotel has stunning, unspoilt views of the coastline. Previously known as the Polurrian Bay Hotel, in 2019 it was renamed and all the communal spaces given a fresh new look; now it feels coastal and quirky, and there’s an emphasis on great service and relaxation. The restaurant specialises in Mediterranean-inspired dishes using the finest seasonal local ingredients and classic hand-stretched pizzas made in the wood-fired Gozney oven. Artisan drinks and enticing cocktails with a Cornish twist are perfect for sipping at the bar, while listening to live music as the sun sets or in the Vista Lounge, which has panoramic views of the mature gardens and Atlantic Ocean. With easy access to Polurrian Cove beach and the South West Coast Path, a cliff-top tennis court, indoor and outdoor pools and 12 acres of grounds, the hotel is ideal for anyone who loves the outdoors and wants to explore this picturesque part of the country. For total relaxation, head to the health club for Elemis treatments and yoga classes.
