The Idle Rocks is situated idyllically on the Harbourside of St Mawes in the Cornish Coast.

Perched perfectly on the rocks, it’s the home from home where you can make yourself comfortable.

The restaurant and South facing Terrace offer an ideal location to appreciate the view across the water, whilst enjoying fabulous food, centered on fresh Cornish ingredients.

The Idle Rocks is the place to re-engage with the simpler pleasures in life.

The rooms have been individually designed to provide an environment where guests can truly unwind and relax.

All 19 bedrooms enjoy barefoot comfort, soft, coastal inspired colours, and stunning fabrics leaving you in no doubt that you are beside the sea!

Home luxuries include beautiful bathrooms, underfloor heating, oversized beds with crisp white Egyptian cotton sheets and deliciously generous hospitality trays.

A state of the art Smart TV system provides all the information you need to explore the hotels facilities, the local area and much more.

The majority of rooms boast wonderful views across the harbour and out towards the sea, some towards the quiet beach just opposite; as you wake in St. Mawes, the sound of waves lapping against the very idle rocks below makes you wonder if there is anywhere else like it in Britain.
