Housel Bay Hotel is situated in Cornwall, overlooking the western approaches of the Atlantic Ocean where it meets the English Channel. Designed and built in the early 1890s with the approval of Prime Minister William Gladstone, Housel Bay is a fine example of late Victorian architecture. The Cornish Coast Path runs through the hotel gardens and provides access east and west to many of the most stunning locations in the British mainland's most southerly county. The tidal beach can be reached from steps directly from the property. Every room has an en suite bathroom and a TV for guests to enjoy, and some also have a seating area. Please note, our images show the room types not the specific room you are booking. Housel Bay Hotel offers two unique restaurants serving breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. The Terrace features panoramic views of Housel Bay, a beautiful garden and the stunning Lizard Peninsula. Fallowfields restaurant has been awarded two rosettes, features an open kitchen, and offers a special tasting menu experience. Guests can enjoy local drinks in Marconi’s bar, the Snug or in the beautiful garden with endless sea views. There is a yoga studio available for all guests, and a hidden beach just steps below the hotel. Our Family Rooms are dog friendly, please see our website for our dog policy before you arrive.
