The Beach is Calling
My two hotels in the West country are each very different and I love them both. One for its perfect position and views of the Cornish sea, the other for its extraordinary architecture deep in the secluded Devon countryside.
Tresanton is a cluster of houses on the edge of St Mawes, one of the prettiest fishing villages in Cornwall. In 1997 I bought Tresanton and spent two years completely redesigning it.
All rooms have views across the sea towards St Anthony’s lighthouse.
Tresanton has 30 rooms and suites, a restaurant with large terraces, a room for private parties, a dogs’ bar, a beach club and a private sailing boat. We love children and have a playroom and children’s garden.
There is no muzak whatsoever at Tresanton only the sound of the waves and the occasional Sea Shanty.

Best New Beach Clubs
I looked at Hotel Tresanton two years before buying. A former yacht club, the collection of buildings was in total disrepair, but we’ve managed to create a very relaxed, almost Mediterranean getaway.
