"Oh, we Brits do like to be beside the seaside... Here are the UK coastal retreats that float our boat, from the fun and funky to the glossy and glam". By Kate O'Donnell

Artist Residence, Penzance, Cornwall
"In Penzance's historic Chapel Street, the Artist Residence - one of two seaside Art Hotels (the other is in Brighton) - is truly eclectic. Each of its ten different rooms was decorated by local and British artists: some are graffiti-inspired (you can even draw on them yourself), others are girlie. Don't expect five-star luxuries; do expect purse-friendly fun and a casual vibe. Penzance is a jumping-off point for Mousehole, St Michael's Mount, the Isles of Scilly and Porthcurno and it has a sea-water filled outdoor public pool whose water level rises and falls with the tide. Unmissably retro."
