Talland Bay Hotel is an award-winning coastal retreat, tucked away in a tranquil corner of South East Cornwall, and set just yards from the South West Coast Path and beach. Guests can look forward to some of the finest food from the most talented regional producers.
What makes a stay at The Talland Bay Hotel unique?
From the eclectic mix of sculptures and art both inside and out, to the one of a kind décor, Talland Bay Hotel has a character all of its own. Each bedroom and reception room is individually styled, with many boasting captivating views out over the sea to the horizon. The pine-fringed lawns offer secret footpaths, sunny terraces and exquisite foliage, whilst the cosy interiors are perfect for storm watching in front of the fire.
A stay at Talland Bay is all about indulgence, whether that's a signature afternoon tea, a sumptuous feast or the wicked range of gins. Arguably what sets this Cornish sanctuary apart, however, is the outstanding levels of hospitality and customer service that complement the amazing food and location.
What are the rooms and facilities on offer at The Talland Bay Hotel?
The 23-room boutique property offers a range of sea view rooms, classic rooms and garden suites. There is a cosy residents' lounge, and an inviting bar and lounge area, with food served in either the sunny conservatory or the fine-dining Terrace restaurant. When the weather permits, diners can eat outside on the terrace or book a private afternoon tea in the garden pavilion.
What can guests enjoy when staying in the Looe area?
Guests can opt to hike the coast path between Looe, Talland Bay and Polperro, or visit the Old Sardine Factory Heritage Centre and browse the shops in Looe. Find out about the area's long history of smuggling at the Polperro Heritage Museum, or take a boat trip to Looe Island, the only marine nature reserve in Cornwall. You could also go horse riding at Polmartin Farm, or visit one of several nearby National Trust properties, including Lanhydrock and Antony House. Colwith Farm Distillery, Cornwall's first 'plough to bottle' gin and vodka distillery, is also well worth a visit.
Where can guests enjoy food and drink?
Aside from Talland Bay Hotel's own delectable, award-winning dining options, there are quaint Cornish pubs such as the Three Pilchards at Polperro. In Looe, head to the Old Sail Loft or the Sardine Factory for more excellent foodie options. Talland Bay Beach Café (seasonal) is another great option for teas, coffees and cake.
