About us

Striking and seductive, Lewinnick Lodge hovers on the edge of Pentire Headland.

Neighboured by little more than the invigorating sea air and captivating Atlantic views. Approached down a winding lane, guests feel as if they’re stumbling upon an undiscovered hideaway amongst the craggy cliffs.

A world away from Newquay, yet just a short stroll to Fistral Beach, as locations go it doesn’t get much better than this. A real hidden gem on the North Cornwall coast, Lewinnick Lodge boasts a stylish bar and brasserie that’s long been a favourite with locals and those in the know.

The addition of our designer bedrooms have transformed this chic secret spot into Newquay’s first boutique hotel, brimming with understated elegance and cool allure.

Our team

We aim to provide the very best customer service and dining experience but know that we couldn’t do that without a skilled and motivated team. We’re proud of what they achieve and so like to hero them, with thanks here:

Who is who



Phil is a hospitality veteran, he has previously worked as Restaurant Manager in the Brasserie and Living Space at the Watergate Bay Hotel and also at The St Moritz hotel in Rock. Phil is in charge of the day to day running of the Lodge.


Anthony Theobald is the head chef here at Lewinnick Lodge. Beginning his career as a teenager, Ant has had a colourful and successful career here in Cornwall and other parts of the UK. 
Completing an advanced apprenticeship at the Penventon Hotel in Cornwall, he landed a role as head chef at the Portreath Arms at just 21-years-old. He then moved onto the Alverton Manor in Truro, where he learnt the art of fine dining and came to really build on his passion for cooking.
From here, Ant’s career sky-rocketed – moving onto prestigious venues in Cardiff, including Woods Brasserie, which is directed by an ex-Gordan Ramsey chef. His role here as a sous chef saw him help the classic French brasserie land two rosettes during his time there, as well as having the opportunity to cook for celebrities like Doctor Who actor Matt Smith and DJ and producer Faithless.
Later, he moved onto the Ryder Cup Golf Club at Celtic Manor, where he worked on two European golf tours, before heading back to his roots in Cornwall. Ant then became head chef at the St Micheal’s Hotel & Spa in Falmouth, where he received two rosettes as a chef himself, and has since worked in some of the most prestigious hotels in Cornwall. Today, he is curating the Lodge’s fresh, bold menu with dishes inspired by world foods and colourful flavours.

The use of biomass in heating systems is beneficial because it uses agricultural, forest, urban and industrial residues and waste to produce heat and electricity with less effect on the environment than fossil fuels. This type of energy production has a limited long-term effect on the environment because the carbon in biomass is part of the natural carbon cycle; while the carbon in fossil fuels is not and permanently adds carbon to the environment when burned for fuel (carbon footprint). Historically, before the use of fossil fuels in significant quantities, biomass in the form of wood fuel provided most of humanity’s heating.
