Set up in the late 90s by two Dutch art-lovers, this is a gallery with a hotel and restaurant attached.
An old Victorian building is set up a windy driveway and looks over acres of sculpture gardens. These are set to surprise and entertain and wandering down to the brook is a great way to work up an appetite for dinner/ breakfast. The art is inside as well, with a large purpose-built gallery and pictures and works throughout the hotel.
Food is simple, fresh, local and filling. And, best of all, it is very near to Saunton Sands, Woolacombe and Putsborough beaches.
Sometimes the hotel is booked up for weddings or for art conferences but it makes for a really unusual and reasonably priced stay.

Stroll through the diverse array of sculptures in the Broomhill gardens to the hotel, partly obscured by trees (and a giant red stilleto) for a cream tea. The jam is fruity and not too sweet, the cream piled high and the scones mountainous. One of those times in life where the food, the location and the company combine to make something much more than the sum of its parts.
