The Idle Rocks

Cornwall, United Kingdom

The Idle Rocks is a small boutique hotel sat on the harbour in St Mawes and is everything you'd want an English seaside hotel to be. Fresh, clean lines, nautical touches and plenty of local seafood await you.

Cornish Charm

The hotel elevates its style out of lazy seaside references with bold splashes of colour, cheeky paintings and quotes and a fun air that makes it popular with families.

The Location

Find the simple pleasures of life beside the sea down in the Cornish coastal town of St Mawes. You're right on the sea so sailing, fishing and more are literally on your doorstep.

The Rooms

20 individually decorated rooms offer a unique stay every time. A Grand Seaview room offers just that, with floor to ceiling windows, soft country style and huge sleek bathrooms.

Nibbles & Tipples

The chic blue and white theme of the restaurant allows the beauty of the simple Cornish dishes to win through. A seasonal and local menu, the team at Idle Rocks are always looking for ways to include the region’s suppliers.

The hotel has won awards for being one of the best places to eat in the UK by the sea, but if the weather’s not playing ball, pull up a pew and order a delicious cocktail.

God is in the details

Some of the prettiest countryside in the UK is right here. Here the clink of masts, the caw of seagulls and the gentle slap of the lapping waves. A few days here will feel like a year.
