Little Fox Hotel
Set in a beautiful 14th-century farmhouse on an eight-acre estate, Little Fox Hotel is just a short walk from the South West Coastal Path, four miles from HMS Raleigh and four miles from Port Eliot estate, all popular Cornwall destinations.
Boutique bedrooms with countryside views and contemporary decor make this the perfect place to stay if you’re looking to explore Cornwall, Plymouth and the surrounding areas. Some of the rooms even have four poster beds. Expect a delicious Cornish breakfast in the morning, complete with sausages and bacon supplied by an award-winning local butcher.
For fantastic Cornish dining and an extensive range of drinks, look no further than the Little Fox’s very own Aspects Bar & Restaurant, where you can pop in for morning coffee with friends, early lunch in the cosy lounge, or enjoy a relaxed Cornish cream tea on the terrace and while away the afternoon. In the stunning new restaurant you can choose from a selection of light bites as well as llocal ale and ﬁne wine.
The extensive bar menu is available throughout the day and night, and in the evening the à la carte menu offers a sophisticated range of beautifully presented dishes, prepared with passion and ﬂair by chef de cuisine Ryan Smith and his experienced team. Take in breathtaking panoramic views while you peruse the menu and order your choice of tipple from the extensive list. Perhaps you’ll opt for the Thai-cured rainbow trout, lemongrass mayonnaise, Thai vinaigrette, conﬁt egg yolk and sourdough croutons to start, or the sumptuous Cornish crab salad, with sweetcorn velouté, crab beignet and lemon oil. For a stand-out main course plump for the pan-fried duck breast, sweet potato gnocchi and purée, wild mushrooms and cherry jus, or the gorgeous lamb rump with sweetbreads, fondant potato, spring vegetables and lamb jus. The menus also feature vegetarian options such as heritage tomato and beetroot salad with fennel and cucumber gazpacho, and courgette, asparagus, chilli and garlic linguine. If you’ve still got room, take a look at the blackboard for the mouth-watering desserts of the day.
Menus here change with the seasons, and all of the food is sourced locally and seasonally to make sure that it tastes as fresh as possible, ensuring that even the most discerning of foodies has a fantastic dining experience.
