Primrose Valley is the kind of family-friendly place that lets it all hang out—stylishly.
Since buying the Edwardian villa in 2001, the owners have ripped up old carpet to reveal hardwood floors, and they've nixed heavy antiques in favor of contemporary oak tables and soft Italian leather chairs.
There's a full-service bar and a kitchen with full English breakfasts and picnic lunches using local ingredients.
The 10 bedrooms come with private baths and vary in size. Four have ocean views—two from covered balconies.
Primrose Valley is in a residential cul-de-sac just across a set of raised railroad tracks from crescent-shaped Porthminster Beach. As the hotel's website advertises, it's "bed to beach in under a minute."
