The Lugger Hotel

Last updated: 25 April, 2023

This charming 17th-century inn in the south-coast fishing village of Portloe was once a favourite haunt of French brandy smugglers; one landlord, Black Dunstan, ended up on the gallows.

It’s now a much brighter prospect: a 22-bedroom hideaway in white paint and bleached woods, with a sunny terrace serving crab and lobster fresh off the boat, and bijou spa offering aromatherapy, reflexology and Reiki treatments.

There’s also a delightful Cottage Suite – housed in a little fisherman’s cottage up the path from the main building, with a log burner, kitchen and ocean views from its own patio.

There’s easy access to the sub-tropical gardens and salty creeks of the lovely Roseland Peninsula, and the South West Coast Path is right in front of you, with pretty Megavissey to the east and upscale St Mawes to the west.
