“A stylish hotel on the remote Bryher Island. Homely suites follow a beach chic theme, think blues, whites and seashells. Most have patios with magnificent sea views. The on site restaurant produces a delicious range of dishes from seasonal locally sourced produce. A grown up beach hideaway.”

Hotel Review

It takes commitment to reach Bryher's only hotel and England's last (helicopter, ferry, jeep) but when you do you’ll find nothing but grass, golden sand, a jumble of rocks and the vast ocean between you and America. Bedrooms are suites, sleeping up to four, and the hotel is filled with a scintillating collection of modern art. Stylish and unstuffy: sophisticated comfort in the wild, and a fine chef, Glenn Gatland, at the helm.
