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.
We are closed for lunch, Monday to Friday in February and March, to allow us to work on some improvements but very much open for breakfast, supper and all day Saturday and Sunday.

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.
The beach is a three minute walk from our front door. Hidden behind towering grass fringed dunes it is one of the loveliest sandy beaches in Southern England. Spectacular at all times of the year, a walk on its pristine sands is the perfect antidote to anything that life might throw at you.
BAR AND RESTAURANT IMPROVEMENTS
Stage One is now complete and we think it’s a huge improvement – a bigger more welcoming entrance hall, a stunning new bar and a refreshed dining room. Stage Two will complete in April, heralding a ‘summer house’ dining room, a beautiful private dining room and guest library and snug.
Cosy – small and cosy, with a King size bed
Garden – like a Cosy but with doors to the garden
Deck – serene, Scandinavian styled rooms with private decks
