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.

If you are planning to come and stay we hope you will like our new bar which we have just unveiled. During March work will be going on to create a new restaurant extension. These works have been planned to occur during the day only so our beautiful new bar and restaurant will be open for breakfast and after 4pm during the week and all day at weekends.

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.
