Bedruthan Steps or Fowey Hall???
12

punchy · 17/02/2009 19:41

My husband and I are thinking of spending a few days at Tredethick Farm next month which is near Fowey with our 18 month old. We also want to spend the weekend in a hotel so we can have a lovely dinner on our own. Has anyone been to both Bedruthan and Fowey Hall or does anyone have a strong opinion - good or bad - on either of them? We can't decide which to choose.

We've been to Bedruthan Steps - we went five years in a row, until our family size made it prohibitive.

It is great - a holiday for children and parents.

We are great mates with the Head Chef at the sister hotel to Fowey Hall - his food is orgasmic. kids facilities at aforesaid sister hotel great too. Fowey maybe a little warmer (south coast, Bedruthan pretty exposed). But bedruthan v popular and always highly recommended.

Bedruthan is great. We have been several times. Enjoy as many visits as you can before you get tied down to school holidays.

Thanks for the messages. Anyone else? I think I'm leaning towards Bedruthan Steps although still undecided!

we stayed at fowey for a weekend last year and had a lovely time - it was homely and romantic - i liked the fact the rooms were a bit rough around the edges in a shabby chic kind of way. we stayed in the main building with a lovely view. i cannot comment on bedruthen as not been myself but heard lots of good things. i think fowey is definately a romantic weekend type destination. i would definately go back for a weekend rather than a weeks holiday.

been to fowey a few times, but not Bedruthan. Loved Fowey, and they have a spa now! Food fantastic. Gardens great. I liked Fowey to wander round, lovely little shops, and the boats, harbour etc.

We've just been to Rosevine, which is owned/run by ex Fowey couple. FANTASTIC! Can really recommend.

Fowey is the most wonderful hotel, we absolutely adored it. It's small and personal compared to Bedruthan which is a bigger almost corporate hotel. Fowey is like being in a country house hotel, relaxing with the papers by the open fire..........Bedruthan is more modern. I'd choose Fowey.
