The Area


In recent years St Mawes has become a magnet for visitors from our busy 'up-country' cities wishing to exchange the hustle and bustle for the calm serenity of the area. The harbour is very popular with the yachting community and some of the main activities in the area are sailing and water-based sports. To this end there are several local companies offering both equipment hire and tuition, which are bookable from the hotel.

The area is also a walkers paradise, offering many circular walks, one of which takes in the picturesque church of St Just-in-Roseland. The fishing villages of Portscatho and Portloe are also worth a visit. There are many beautiful gardens to visit within the area, Trelissick, Lanhydrock, Lamorran and several other National Trust areas of natural beauty. Next page
