Housel Bay Hotel stands on its near-perfect position on The Lizard in Cornwall, boasting what has been remarked as, "One of the best views in the UK." The Hotel was designed and built in the early 1890's with the approval of Prime Minister at the time, William Gladstone. Housel Bay is a wonderful example of late Victorian architecture.

The Cornish Coast Path trickles through the hotel gardens, providing access east and west to many of the most stunning locations in Cornwall, including Kynance Cove & Cadgwith Cove. All 21 bedrooms have their own bathrooms and those in the gable-ends of the building are furnished with sitting areas, where guests can relax and contemplate the endless passage of ships entering and leaving the channel, and even enjoy glimpses of sandy Housel Beach nestled just beneath the cliffs.

'The Dining Room' restaurant serves breakfast, lunches, snacks and dinner all to AA Rosette standard and is widely patronised for its unique style and high standards. Guests can enjoy a drink on the wide terrace or lower decking before dining in the Conservatory or our more formal Dining Room.
