Showstopping hot chocolates in Cornwall


Hunker down this season with a hot chocolate and beachside views.

With the arrival of autumn, it's time wrap up, get cosy and search for a showstopping hot chocolate (with extra marshmallows of course). We've sampled a few recently to give you a head start, here are our top 5.

The Beach Hut, Watergate Bay

Towered with whipped cream, marshmallows and extra-large buttons, it's no surprise that the Extreme Hot Chocolate is a firm favourite in the bay. Finished in a lovely Cornishware mug, this hot chocolate can be enjoyed whilst storm watching in the warmth or out on the decking giving guests front row seats to the fiery Cornish sunsets.
