They describe themselves as the “Hotel On The Beach.” Its a mix of family, corporate and wedding venue, with its own pool, if you don’t fancy saltwater, and have forgotten your wetsuit. A favourite of one, Mrs Thatcher. Self-catering cottages and apartments.

Fowey Hall Hotel, Restaurant & Spa PL23 1ET
This is a luxurious hotel designed for families with an entourage (Nannies and Au Pairs). Set in a quite superb hilltop location overlooking Fowey. It’s thus child-friendly and has masses of things to do (and suggestions) on offer. It could be described as an expensive nursery. I loved the children’s bright paintings adorning the walls. Dogs (teddies, rabbits, ponies?) (and mothers-in-law) welcome, too. In the off-season their lunches are great value.

The Scarlet, Mawgan Porth TR8 4DQ
Eco, green, sustainable living...and pure hedonism. This is what separates this multi-million pound investment from its peers. It is an expensive place to play and relax…Let’s hope their fine example will translate into affordable, more plentiful options. Better try it anyway before your kids take the first option. Adults only.
