A Taste of Cornwall at The Idle Rocks
1 December 2017 - 21 March 2018
Experience a real taste of Cornwall with this two-night break at The Idle Rock, available from December through to March* 2018
Arrive at The Idle Rocks and begin your culinary journey. Here you will be greeted by a member of our team and shown to the Lounge for a pot of locally sourced Tregothnan tea and homemade biscuits.
In the evening, join us in the bar for half a dozen fresh Cornish oysters and a glass of Trevibban Mill, Cornish and Organic sparkling wine.
Following this, your journey will continue as you are invited to sit down in our award-winning restaurant to a secret tasting menu. This menu is thoughtfully created by Head Chef Guy Owen and his team and champions the very essence of Cornwall and the stunning produce therein.
The next day, enjoy a relaxing afternoon exploring the beautiful Cornish fishing village of St Mawes, or why not walk to the charming St Just in Roseland Church via the coast path? Ours, and indeed Cornwall's only concierge – Sid, will be on hand to offer his recommendations of all the best spots to visit in the area.
After working up an appetite, head over to our sister property The St Mawes Hotel, for sharing platters and a movie with popcorn in our luxury Hidden Cinema to watch a film of your choice, (subject to availability).
The following day and after a restful night's sleep, enjoy a full Cornish Breakfast before heading home via world famous, Lost Gardens of Heligan.
