Dinner with Alex Polizzi Wednesday 26 February

Tresanton... A wonderful one-off, surely like no other hotel in Britain

Condé Nast Traveller

Tresanton is a cluster of houses on the edge of St Mawes, one of the prettiest fishing villages in Cornwall. There is no muzak whatsoever at Tresanton only the sound of the waves and the occasional Sea Shanty.

Sun-drenched by day, candle lit by night

The restaurant has a mosaic floor and a Pelargonium filled terrace. South facing, your eyes are constantly drawn to the sea. On a sunny day, Tresanton’s dining room is one of the loveliest places to eat in England.

The restaurant

Each of the 30 rooms has a different feel – and a view of the sea

The terraces cascade down the hillside towards a Mediterranean-style beach club set just above the waterline.

Beach Club

Pinuccia is our magnificent 8m classic yacht that’s available to our guests. Designed by Baglietto Varazze, she was built in 1939 to race for Italy.

Days aboard Pinuccia

The special light made West Cornwall a centre for modern and abstract British artists in the 1940s to the 1960s.

The hotel is decorated with paintings and drawings from Cornwall.

 

There is a lovely Georgian Chapel, bought and elegantly renovated by Olga Polizzi

Situated on Chapel Terrace, a short (but steep!) walk up the hill from the St Mawes waterfront. It is home to our cultural programme of events. In November we hold our own Music Festival.

During the school holidays

The hotel arranges a children’s club with art and craft activities in the playroom or games on the beach.  Tavern is perfect for exploring rock pools, paddling and swimming.
