The Idle Rocks is located on the Roseland Peninsula in the heart of St Mawes, an idyllic spot voted as the best seaside town in the UK. Anchoring St Mawes’ reputation as a desirable Cornish location, this small hotel is considered one of the region’s top luxury retreats. All the interiors – which were designed by hotel owner Karen Richards – incorporate traditional coastal culture and contemporary design. The restaurant, led by former Le Manoir chef Dorian Janmaat, focuses on locally sourced produce with flavour, texture and presentation being integral to all dishes. Uniquely positioned on the water, the hotel gives guests access to a multitude of activities, including sailing, walking, or fishing.

Maverick tip

Tucked away on the upper floor of the hotel, you’ll find The Reef Knot Retreat Treatment Room. Here you can book an array of wellness treatments, from full body massages to invigorating facials.
