Our tranquil garden offers abundant birdlife with over 30 different species visiting frequently. We are within easy walking distance of the penguins at Boulders, Seaforth Beach, restaurants and all the conveniences of the town.

The strong maritime theme throughout Cheriton is particularly noticeable in the ‘Just Nuisance’ pub. This honesty bar which is packed with naval artifacts is for the exclusive use of our guests.
