On the quayside in the traditional fishing village of St Mawes, the The Idle Rocks features 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 harbor 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 sirup, 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 centers are 30 minutes’ drive away.
