The elegant Ship and Castle Hotel is just a few metres from the sea’s edge in the centre of the picture-perfect fishing village of St Mawes. The 55-bedroom Hotel offers a selection of spacious rooms, some with views out over the sea, as well as a bar and restaurant. Enjoy a traditional Cornish Cream Tea in the lounge, or watch the fishing boats and the waves from the comfort of the bar.
This is an ideal point from which to discover all that Devon and Cornwall have to offer. Take a boat on a classic river trip or cross St Mawes Harbour – just across the road from the hotel – to Falmouth and Pendennis Castle. There are historic houses and castles to explore, and the beautiful Roseland Heritage Coast. The Lost Garden of Heligan, the Eden Project, Mevagissey and Charlestown are within an hour’s drive, and even closer to the hotel are the Falmouth Art Gallery and the National Maritime Museum Cornwall. Why not take a walk along the Lizard Heritage Coast which is part of the South West Coastal Path, with stunning clifftop views.
