The Idlerocks, Cornwall
|Harbourside, TR2 5AN, Saint Mawes, Cornwall, UNITED KINGDOM.|
Description: The IdlerocksEnjoying a spectacular location on the waterfront in the charming little village of St. Mawes, Idle Rocks Hotel is set in a historic building, now more than 100 years old, that was originally built on the site of the village bakery. After a long history and a number of changes of ownership, the Idle Rocks hotel was closed on the 31st of October 2012, to reopen on the 1st of July 2013 as a luxury boutique hotel. Idle Rocks offers exclusive accommodation and fine cuisine in a spectacular harbour-side setting.
Standing at the tip of the Roseland peninsula, Idle Rocks Hotel is ideally placed for exploring this beautiful area of south-west Cornwall. Close to a number of fine beaches, there is a direct ferry to Falmouth just footsteps away at the St. Mawes landing, while cyclists should not miss the King Harry chain ferry, a few miles up river on the Fal. The Southwest Coastal Path offers access to some of the most spectacular landscapes in the country, and the hotel's friendly staff can arrange a fabulous range of water-sports for guests, from kayaking and stand-up-paddle surfing to a variety of sailing activities.
The hotel's award-winning restaurant serves delicious menus based on great Cornish produce, simply prepared, cooked and served. Fish and seafood from the village fleet, fruit, vegetables and meat from local farms, it all comes right from the doorstep. Whilst the food is served to the very highest standard, the setting is relaxed and cosy, providing a real home-from-home feeling.
