Located in a former fishing village on the Rame Peninsula, Westcroft is the ideal spot for those looking for a slice of the unspoilt Cornwall that visitors dream of but rarely find. Often referred to as the forgotten corner of the county, the peninsula is an area of outstanding natural beauty boasting secluded beaches; fantastic walks and spectacular scenery.
Your hosts, Sarah and Dylan McLees-Taylor, have created a welcoming and soothing place to escape to, and their attention to detail ensures your stay will be a memorable one.
Westcroft is just 20 metres from the beach and situated on The South West Coast Path, giving guests easy access to the great walks on their doorstep. There are five pubs in the village and the nearest one has unbeatable sea views, and serves good food and real ales.
Westcroft Gallery, which showcases the work of some of the peninsula’s finest artists, is situated behind the guest house in a converted boat shed. Sarah and Dylan can arrange a variety of additional services, including therapeutic massage and reflexology by a qualified therapist; baby-sitting and art classes. Ask for details when booking your accommodation.
This award-winning guest house was once a Georgian coaching inn and dates back to 1760. Its handsome features and period character have been lovingly preserved and restored, and its interior has been given a stylish, contemporary makeover to create accommodation with plenty of luxurious finishing touches and bags of quirky character.
During the last four years Westcroft has picked up a stack of awards and rave reviews, including a place in Tatler magazine’s ‘101 best places to stay’ guide for 2011.
