Welcome to our Restaurant With Rooms across the road from the dunes and the beautiful sandy beach beyond. Inspired by the coastal motels you might find in California, we're a relaxing hideaway from the stresses and strains of modern life where grown-ups come to dine, dream and relax. We have great food, amazing beds and a lovely little spa treatment room in the garden. Our team are here to make you smile.

Our twenty bedrooms all feature king or super king beds, gorgeous Hypnos mattresses, goose/duck down pillows and duvets and the very best 300 count linen sheets. These are possibly some of the most comfortable beds you might ever get the chance to sleep in. This is one of our Garden rooms.
THE BEACH HUT
The Beach Hut is our beautiful treatment room sitting in the corner of our coastal garden, a peaceful oasis to enjoy a deeply relaxing massage or facial using an exclusive range of handmade English natural products called WiDEYE. If you are coming to stay be sure to book a treatment at the time of booking as it gets very busy.
