The Nare Overview

Location: St Mawes, Cornwall, England

The Nare is an outstanding, comfortable and elegant country house hotel by the sea on Cornwall’s popular south coast. Family owned and run, The Nare offers guests a tranquil, relaxing experience in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The beachside setting makes this the perfect location to unwind and escape.

The hotel’s interiors have been tastefully decorated and furnished with antiques and a curated collection of pictures, many by renowned Cornish artists. There’s a wide choice of 37 individual guest bedrooms and suites, some with sea view balconies or terraces with garden views.

The dining room at The Nare offers guests exceptional food, service and wine in a formal setting whilst their Quarterdeck Restaurant offers a more relaxed option with a sheltered terrace open during the warmer months.

Carne beach is directly accessible from the hotel’s garden and The Nare has an outdoor pool, heated from May to October, an indoor pool and an outdoor hot tub, sheltered in its own beach hut. In addition to swimming, there’s a tennis court, a gym and a croquet lawn.

Guests can charter ‘Alice Rose’ the Nare’s very own motor yacht launch and the hotel also has a Cornish Crabber sailing yacht, ideal for exploring the local coastline.

Dogs are welcome at The Nare and the local area has miles of lovely local sandy beaches and undulating coastal footpaths.
