Gurnard's Head HotelTreen (Zennor)
Set in beautiful countryside with magnificent sea and moorland views, and startlingly painted a deep yellow colour externally, this free house on the north coast road is named after a nearby prominent headland. It has a large bar with several roomy drinking areas and two log fires providing winter warmth; there are also a stylish restaurant and a cosy snug. The décor features a monthly-changing exhibition from local artists. In addition to regular St Austell Tribute, there are three changing beers in the summer and two in the winter from Cornish breweries. The cider is from Skreach Farm, near Lamorna. Outside there is a large garden mostly laid to lawn, ideal for the kids on hot summer days. Food is sourced from local produce. The hotel is largely focused on food, with limited space for drinkers although you are welcome to stop by just for a beer or two. The accommodation is in 7 letting rooms. Local buses (daytime only) stop outside the door.
