About US

The Plume of Feathers is the most inviting of places.

Our cosy, dog-friendly retreat blends the warmth and character of a traditional inn with a stylish, contemporary ambience. Exposed oak beams, a roaring log fire and a natural spring hark back to the past, while vibrant art, a light-flooded conservatory and innovative dishes create a modern edge.

Once you’ve had your fill of country-pub food packed with local ingredients, retreat to one of our boutique bedrooms where you can soak in the bath and slip between Egyptian cotton sheets. Converted from the original barns, stables and hen houses to which their names allude, our dog-friendly accommodation features country-style furnishings, modern artwork and all mod cons.

Drink and dine in a cosy ambience; sleep in utter comfort. The Plume of Feathers is the perfect choice for a luxury break in Cornwall.

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



Nat began her cooking career at 23 after 8 years of working both as waitress and a restaurant manager. However, with 3 strong mentors in the early days she picked up skills and techniques very quickly which has skyrocketed her career in the culinary world.

After only 18 months she held her first Head Chef position in West Yorkshire and this is where her culinary adventure began. In 2012 she took part in BBC’s MasterChef: The professionals, whilst she didn’t win she got to the third round and was able to cook for one of her food heroes Michel Roux Jr.

After a few more years up North she then decided to spread her wings and head to the South West to follow her dream of living by the sea in Cornwall. Now she is excelling as our Chef Patron overseeing The Plume of Feathers, following a previous role as executive chef for both The Plume and our sister venue, Lewinnick Lodge in Newquay.

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.
