The Idle Rocks

The Idle Rocks

Boasting the best spot in St Mawes, The Idle Rocks sits right on the harbour’s edge of this idyllic village – the perfect place for a seaside break in Cornwall.

Each of the hotel’s 19 rooms has been individually designed to reflect the truly peaceful environment in which it sits - with soft, coastal inspired colours, whitewashed floors, under-floor heating and oversized beds, you can truly unwind and relax.

Downstairs you’ll find the hotel’s delectable restaurant, where each table is positioned to face the sea - plus plenty of cosy nooks for reading books and roaring log fires, perfect for snuggling up in front of, with a classic Cornish cocktail.

After indulging in the hotel’s exquisite breakfast, (where you’ll find everything from proper porridge or a full Cornish breakfast, to smoked salmon and homemade pancakes) why not get out and explore all that the Roseland Peninsula has to offer. Home to stunning sandy beaches, beautiful Cornish countryside and iconic landmarks - make sure to pay a visit to St Mawes Castle for striking views across the headland to Pendennis Castle.
