    Striking and seductive, the Lewinnick Lodge hovers on the edge of Pentire Headland, neighboured by little more than the invigorating sea air and captivating Atlantic views. Approached down a winding lane, guests feel as if they’re stumbling upon an undiscovered hideaway amongst the craggy cliffs. A world away from Newquay, yet just a short stroll to Fistral Beach, as locations go, it doesn’t get much better than this.A real hidden gem on the North Cornwall coast, the Lewinnick Lodge boasts a stylish bar and brasserie that’s long been favourite with locals and those in the know.

    The addition of ten designer bedrooms has transformed this chic secret spot into Newquay’s first boutique lodge, brimming with understated elegance and cool allure.

    Drawing on the owner’s previous success at the Lewinnick’s sister venture – The Plume of
    Feathers in nearby Mitchell – the new lodge will bring together inspiration from some of the top interior experts and communications agencies in the UK.

    Relax in a coastal cocoon
    Designed by interior architect Guy Bostock – whose London design agency Concorde BGW has worked with some of the UK’s most prestigious restaurants and hotels including Brawn in London and The Wheatsheaf Inn in the Cotswolds – each of the rooms effortlessly balance a stylish flair with a cosy coastal ambience.

    A fresh and modern approach has been applied throughout, inspired by the crisp ocean views that pour through the floor-to ceiling windows. Neutral Farrow and Ball hues create a light and airy hideaway, perfectly complemented by the accent colours and natural materials introduced through carefully selected elements of the furnishings.

    Designed as a refuge for those in need of relaxation and rejuvenation, indulgent touches abound. Sumptuous mohair, plush velvet and aged leather combine to give the bedrooms warmth and texture, while the bathrooms, clad in locally-sourced stone, offer a luxurious place for pampering. A soak in the free-standing bath, perfectly positioned in the window to maximise the views, will almost convince guests that they’re drifting off to sea…

    But it’s the attention to detail that truly sets this boutique beauty apart; think chilled bubbly on arrival, homemade biscuits in the bedrooms and binoculars, constantly on hand for view gazing. Luxury, organic toiletries greet guests in the bathroom, while local art adorns the walls of the bedrooms and all the mod-cons one could need are provided for their convenience.

    Once settled in, guests can simply head downstairs to the bar for a nightcap on the terrace or slip straight into the Egyptian cotton sheets and drift off to the sound of the water lapping the cliffs below.
