At the Rising Sun a 14th-century smugglers' haunt has been transformed into a romantic hideaway with a sleek designer feel. Elegant flourishes are everywhere, from the anglepoise lamps and local art to the soft, tasteful throws. Ask for a sea-view room to watch the tide rise and fall in the harbour just outside.
