Mariners will feel right at home at the former yacht club Hotel Tresanton, which sits on the edge of idyllic fishing village St Mawes, situated on the stunning Roseland Peninsula in South Cornwall.
Tresanton is a cluster of houses on the edge of the quaint fishing village St Mawes, which is described as one of the pretties in Cornwall and boasts pure unadulterated seascapes and sounds.
With 30 rooms to choose from, guests will be able to visit the Tresanton time and time again with a new experience on every visit. Importantly, each of the rooms has a view of the sea.
But if a view of the water isn’t quite enough for you, the hotel has its own eight metre classic sailing yacht.
Built in 1939 to race for Italy, the Baglietto-designed Pinuccia is spectacular and harks back to the golden age of good clean fun.
It’s also worth noting that Cornwall, and particularly St Mawes, has a special type of sunlight, so pure the region became popular with modern and abstract British artists in the 1940s and 60s. As a result, the hotel is also decorated with paintings and drawings of Cornwall, showcasing the brilliant light at its finest.
Sailors and artists catered for, the hotel’s restaurant is sure to please even the hardiest of foodies, offering a range of dishes from the sea and land, each showcasing the exquisite skills of the chefs.
Although you may be tempted to only enjoy what the hotel has to offer, including a stunning beach club, you should try to get out and explore the fascinating landscape surrounding the dwelling.
There’s plenty to do locally, including a visit to Cornwall’s Lizard peninsula, which is the most southernly point on the British mainland, giving the phrase ‘down south’ a whole new and extreme meaning.
Also look out for Church Cove where you’ll find the ancient Gunwalloe Church in a sandy beach cove, both romantic and spooky.
