It's the colossal clifftop hot tubs and the outdoor natural pool that send The Scarlet to the top of our coastal-cool list. Looking for a seriously intimate do? The team will happily cater for just the two of you (and even supply witnesses); or, for a grander bash, you can book out this eco-hotel for two nights, taking over all 37 of its gorgeous and modern rooms.

An informal ceremony takes place in the Retreat Lounge, with most guests standing - it's cosy, but has sweeping seaside views.

Ceremony capacity: 78; www.scarlethotel.co.uk
