The complete package

Escape to elegant seaside chic in the heart of Rock at St Enodoc Hotel.

Privately owned in an exquisite hideaway with sweeping Camel Estuary views, this chic, boutique hotel is but a stone’s throw from the beach and the passenger ferry to Padstow, making it the perfect base from which to discover everything that the north coast has to offer.

“roll out of your sumptuous bed at your own leisure, head downstairs and enjoy breakfast in the sunshine”

The hotel offers 20 double rooms, including four luxurious suites. Many of these have breathtaking coastal views and every last one is designed to help you relax and unwind, decorated in bright colours with quirky and original oil paintings on the walls.

St Enodoc also has its own restaurant. In the summer, food can be enjoyed al fresco on the terrace overlooking the estuary. If you’re staying, you can roll out of your sumptuous bed at your own leisure, head downstairs and enjoy breakfast in the sunshine. In the evenings, why not try one of the team’s tempting cocktails as the sun sets? The kitchen has the Cornish larder at its disposal, with specials ranging from Porthilly oysters, to fish and lobster landed in Padstow.

For many of us, a trip away just isn’t the same without our four-legged friend in tow. The St Enodoc team know this, which is why they’re pleased to announce their new dog-friendly status! Big or small, furry friends are welcome and, with an abundance of great walks in the region, visitors and locals alike can now enjoy a welcome pit stop for lunch, dinner or a quick drink on the terrace with their dog.

In fact, the team are so passionate about being dog friendly that they’ve also created a dedicated ‘Dog Dinner’ menu, as well as room service for resident hounds, bringing a whole new meaning to ‘a dog’s life’! This means that whether you’re a local or looking for a dog-friendly stay, St Enodoc Hotel is the perfect stop for you and your waggy tailed companion.

Finally, as if all this were not enough, guests here can also indulge in some proper ‘me’ time with a day (or two) in the St Enodoc Spa. Situated in a quiet corner of the main house, it’s everything you’d expect from a Cornish spa, with a friendly and fully-qualified team going above and beyond to ensure you leave feeling pampered and invigorated.
