OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Situated in the gorgeous coastal town of Rock, set back on the hillside with stunning estuary views, the St Enodoc is close to both Padstow and Polzeath with the Camel Estuary's beautiful sandy beaches a stone's throw away - the ideal base for exploring the beautifully rugged north coast of Cornwall. It's a five-minute walk to Paul Ainsworth's Mariners pub for a delicious lunch, and ten minutes to the expansive sands of Rock beach and Daymer Bay. There's also a foot ferry across to the ancient fishing port of Padstow.

By car: around 5 hours from London, 3 hours from Bristol and 4 hours 15 minutes from Birmingham. Free parking available.

By train: London Paddington to Bodmin Parkway takes 4 hours. The hotel is a 40-minute drive from the station. Book trains to Bodmin Parkway.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Originally built as a private house, the St Enodoc was one of Cornwall's first seaside-chic boutique hotels; expect a modern coastal vibe within rooms that are flooded with light. Décor is fresh and contemporary with a focus on brightly coloured furnishings and fabrics and local art showcased on the walls, providing a sunny backdrop throughout.

THE FACILITIES

The elevated hotel boasts a large terrace and beautiful gardens, with loungers dotted around manicured lawns. There's a heated outdoor pool - open from April to September - and a small spa with two treatment rooms; water sports can be arranged at nearby Wavehunters. Private surf lessons can be arranged at George's Surf School in Polzeath, and the popular St Enodoc golf course is just minutes from the hotel.
