Escape to the Cornish Coast, and sooth yourself with the sights and sounds of the sea with a stay at Hotel Tresanton. This award-winning hotel has been carefully created from a cluster of five houses on the edge of the unspoilt village of St Mawes, one of the prettiest fishing villages in Cornwall. Everything about this charming country hotel, from the sea views in every room, to the fresh fish menu and large, sea-front dining terraces, puts the ocean at the heart of your stay. Whether you are already familiar with the expansive beauty of the Cornish coastline, or you are a first time visitor to this spectacular region, you will not fail to leave Hotel Tresanton feeling refreshed and revived by your coastal encounter.
Hotel Tresanton is perfectly positioned on the edge of the pretty fishing village of St Mawes, giving it excellent views of the Cornish Sea and easy access to delightful walks along the coastal paths. A short ferry ride across the bay to Falmouth will bring you to Rick Stein’s restaurant, while a quick drive will take you to several excellent art galleries showcasing some of the best contemporary Cornish, UK and international art. A selection of beautiful gardens are within a stone’s throw of the hotel, and are yours to explore at your leisure. Slightly further afield, destinations in Western Cornwall such as Zennor and Cape Cornwall can all be reached on day trip excursions.
Each of Hotel Tresanton’s 30 rooms and suites are light and airy with a stylish nautical-themed touch to their carefully chosen décor. Whether you choose to stay in a single room, or to rent the whole of one of the houses, you will never lose sight of the sea from your window. Antiques and Cornish art can be found in every room, giving each an individual character of its own. For extra warmth on cooler coastal evenings, choose the Forte Suite in Rock Cottage complete with a wood-burning stove in the sitting room and a crow’s nest terrace overlooking St Antony’s lighthouse, or, for larger groups, opt for the three-bedroomed suite in Upper Tresanton with two bathrooms, a spacious sitting and dining area, and a large balcony with panoramic views. Wherever you choose to rest your head, you will not be disappointed by the attention to detail and stylish comfort of this charming coastal retreat.
WHY WE LIKE IT
As if spectacular sea views from every window aren’t enough, Hotel Tresanton offers several ocean-themed experiences that you can enjoy during your stay. Hire the hotel’s magnificent yacht and sail in style around the beautiful Falmouth Bay, or, if you feel the need for speed, request a speedboat sightseeing tour instead. Return to the hotel, reinvigorated by a day of sea air, and unwind in its luxurious treatment room with a unique four-handed massage, the Apollo Awakening, inspired by the undulating movement of waves. Enjoy a calming end to your day as you dine on simply cooked, fresh fish in the Mediterranean atmosphere of the hotel’s dining room, and be lulled into a restful sleep by the sound of the waves lapping outside your window.
