At The Gannet Inn, you're a short stroll away from all this and more.

The lighthouse which inspired Virginia Woolf's novel can be spied across the bay, while nearby St Ives is home to a Tate Gallery and myriad other artists, past and present. All have been drawn by the magical light and even more magical scenery. Back at The Gannet Inn, the 100-year-old building has undergone a complete transformation and shows off a fresh designer feel inside and out.

You'll find exquisite boutique bedrooms, an inviting restaurant and a lively bar where you can mingle with locals and fellow guests alike.

Return for a sumptuous cream tea or a hearty dinner.
