Waking up in a bright, spacious room overlooking the sea… With the sound of waves lapping gently against the shore below, The Idle Rocks calls out an invitation for a morning swim, a sailing trip or a crabbing expedition with the children. The Richards have transformed this historic building in the enchanting little port of St. Mawes, giving it the soul of a wonderful holiday home. On the waterfront terrace, guests savour the mild climate of Cornwall, and the freshest fish landed by a local fisherman on the quay. Simple, flavoursome food and a warm, friendly service in a picturesque setting — it’s no wonder the staff’s joie de vivre is so contagious!
