The Idle Rocks

On the quayside in the traditional fishing village of St Mawes, the The Idle Rocks boasts excellent sea views and fresh seafood. It offers modern rooms and free Wi-Fi. All individually decorated rooms at Idle Rocks feature a flat-screen TV, vintage radio, Cornish tea, a Nespresso coffee maker and a bathroom with a bath or shower, and some with a rain-effect shower. Some rooms have views of the harbour and St Anthony’s Head. Some TVs also double as mirrors. Food is sourced locally and the head chef is also a keen forager. Breakfast includes unique twists, such as Birch Tree syrup, and there is also a range of brunch dishes on offer. You can enjoy a cocktail in the bar, or on the terrace which offers lovely sea views. The village is home to St Mawes Castle, coastal and inland walks and watersports. Falmouth is a mile away by ferry, which operates year-round. Trelissick Gardens, St Austell and Truro town centres are 30 minutes’ drive away.
