The Idle Rocks

Waking up in a bright, spacious room overlooking the sea, with the sound of waves lapping gently against the shore below, is an invitation to enjoy a morning swim, take a boat trip, join a sailing lesson on the dinghy or visit one of Cornwall’s internationally renowned gardens. Owners Karen and David Richards have transformed this historic building in the enchanting port of St Mawes, instilling it with the soul of a wonderful holiday home. On the waterfront terrace, guests can savour the Cornish sunshine and the freshest fish caught by local dayboat fishermen. Refined, imaginative and sustainable cuisine with genuine hospitality in a relaxed setting — no wonder the staff ’s joie de vivre is so contagious!
