A world away from the frenetic pace of the daily grind, The Seaside Boarding House in Burton Bradstock is a place to escape the smartphone and succumb to the soothing charms of this coastal hideaway. With each bedroom a haven of comfort and tranquillity, no televisions are found within, instead inviting visitors to soak up the spectacular picture frame view outside their windows or immerse themselves in the calming pleasures of a good read.
Harking back to a simpler time, this restaurant and bar with rooms is an oasis of relaxed sophistication, offering guests a rare opportunity to recharge their batteries in sumptuous style. Each of the eight bedrooms are designed to inspire a slower pace from the moment the suitcase is stowed, equipped with a deep claw-foot bath, super king-size bed with Devon-made natural mattresses and piles of feather pillows, working in harmony with the ever-present lullaby of the sea.
Downstairs, a fine restaurant and proper bar look out onto the terrace, featuring many a playful nod to The Seaside Boarding House’s marine heritage, combined elegantly with hand-picked influences from throughout the past century. Welcoming sandy feet, windswept dogs and weather-beaten walkers returning from the undulating majesty of the South West Coast Path, which passes just outside the door, the kitchen offers a daily-changing menu inspired by the south west’s fisherman, farmers and makers, while the bar staff are on hand to mix and muddle the night away.
A rare retreat, offering visitors the chance to escape their screens and reawaken the senses with a lungful of sea air, the rhythm of crashing waves and the awe-inspiring panorama of Lyme Bay, The Seaside Boarding House offers a truly stimulating setting for a digital detox.
