Local Restaurants

  • The Watch House, best for seafood, local ambiance, and walking distance from the hotel. The Old Watchhouse Restaurant, 1.
  • St Mawes Hotel, authentic, quality dishes that showcase the best locally sourced Cornish ingredients. Harbourside, St. Mawes.

Don't Miss

  • Hotel Tresanton has its own 8m yacht built in 1939 to race for Italy at an international competition.

How to Get There

  • The best way to reach St Mawes is by train or car. A five-hour drive from London or four hours by train to St Austell.  First Great Western also offers an overnight sleeper train. with  private one or two-bed compartments. Avoid using King Harry Ferry which is not in service at night.
