Perched on a Cornish cliff top overlooking Mawgan Porth, the Scarlet Eco Hotel and Spa  makes the most of the scenery, with facilities to enjoy treatments while listening to the waves crashing on the beach below.

The cliffs at Bedruthan have been systematically eroded over the years, leaving a series of impressive volcanic rock stacks.  Other attractions include the huge rock formations known as the “giant’s steps”.

During the middle part of the 20th century, an ancient settlement was uncovered just behind the beach by archaeologists that dates back to Saxon times. It now hosts a popular 'pitch & putt'.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.

Although we do a ‘final clean’ after your departure, we expect the accommodation to be left in a reasonably clean state and tidy as it was found on arrival.

We cannot accept any liability for any of the following; Injuries or loss of life of anyone in the party, loss or damage to any property brought onto the premises or loss or damage caused by any vehicles on the premises.

- As the mobile telephone signal at The Dune Beach House is not good a land line will be available for guests to use during their stay - usage will be monitored and any costs incurred will be deducted from the deposit held - we hope this is agreeable.
