This child- and dog-friendly hotel on the coast between Padstow and Newquay is one for the whole family. There's a real focus on children here with a programme of activities, craft room, soft play, tennis, kids' pools and cinema. A short walk leads down to Mawgan Porth, a large sandy beach with caves and rockpools to explore. The hotel has a retro-scandi feel and cheerful décor. There are expansive sea views from the public areas and many of the rooms. Sustainability and wellbeing are at the centre of things here: areas of the garden have been rewilded and there is an Ayurveda-inspired spa. Yoga is on offer, and regular craft workshops promote mindfulness.

Room 110 is great for families - it's a sea-view villa with a separate kids' bunk room and two bathrooms. Waking up to a view of the Atlantic and the sound of waves crashing on the shore was delightful.
