Come here for...
● Designer glam on the Cornish coast. ● Yacht-club yumminess with stunning sea views. ● A star-studded past guest list.
There are sun terraces to enjoy, a private 48 ft yacht at your disposal and a massage room. If you fancy a catching a flick then Tresanton has its own cinema, with a bar for drinks afterwards.
Good to know
It's popular with families during the school summer holidays, so if you treasure tranquillity, come during term time. Tresanton is built on several levels, with plenty of stairs.
31 rooms and four suites.
Almost all rooms have stunning sea views, 12 rooms boast a terrace and one has a private garden. Many rooms have a large walk-in shower in addition to a bath. Two of the suites have a cosy wood burning stove.
Rooms with the X-Factor include Five and Six (both with a terrace) and Room Seven. All three are on the first floor of the main hotel. Rooms 28 and 29 in The Nook have beautiful sea views along with room 31, the Master Suite in Rock Cottage. The Nook and Rock Cottage are both houses adjacent to the hotel and are popular choices with honeymooners.
Eat & Drink
Tresanton’s glass-fronted restaurant has a cool and calm Mediterranean feel. Menus major on fresh fish and organic local produce, with a dash of Italian, such as Cornish crab with tomato apple and cucumber. Romantics can have a candlelit dinner for two served on the private terrace, with lobster as a main course and a bottle of chilled white wine. A table on one of the outdoor sundecks is de rigueur on warm summer evenings.
Served until 10:30, with a buffet and variety of hot dishes.
Available 24 hours.
See & Do
Do explore St Mawes – a pretty Cornish village full of whitewashed cottages and little lanes, with a castle, a clutch of small cafes and plenty of yachts. There’s plenty of great walking around the unspoilt Roseland peninsula, and you can take a ferry across the bay to Falmouth.
Splash out with a day aboard Pinuccia, Tresanton’s 48 ft yacht (expensive but a fabulous treat), or ask the skipper to drop you at a quiet beach for the day with a picnic. Trelissick gardens are well worth a visit, as is the cathedral city of Truro and the little church at St Just in Roseland.
Tresanton has a dedicated massage room where beauty and body treatments can be booked.
