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