Enjoy afternoon cream tea, read the papers and snooze in a comfy sofa before dining in style in one of the Nare Hotel’s two sea view restaurants.

The Nare Hotel, Cornwall


The Nare Hotel is a privately owned, elegant English country house hotel by the sea. This is not a designer hotel. It’s a comfortable place to relax and unwind away from the cares of the world.

The Dining Room, with panoramic views over Gerrans Bay, offers a formal Table d’hôte menu of English fare, which changes nightly. Guests enjoy silver service, including the renowned hors-d’oeuvre trolley, flambés and homemade puddings. Local Portloe lobster is on the menu daily alongside an abundance of fresh seafood.

The 2 rosette Quarterdeck Restaurant at The Nare is in addition to The Dining Room and has a spectacular beachfront position. Its classical yachting décor and teak panelling gives The Quarterdeck a less formal feel to the main dining room, and light lunches, afternoon cream teas or a-la-carte dining can be enjoyed throughout the day and evening. Choose from traditional favourites such as Heligan rib of beef, Portloe crab cakes or the popular ‘Captain’s Tea’ – served with local Tregothnan Estate English Tea and lashings of Cornish clotted cream. Whatever the season, there is always plenty of the finest Cornish produce.

Alternatively, why not take in the natural beauty of Cornwall? The Roseland Peninsula, the location of The Nare, is one of Cornwall’s special places. Secluded creeks, stunning gardens and hidden churches offer plenty of places to discover. Visit Caerhays Castle, home to the National Collection of Magnolias or the impressive private botanical gardens of Trewithen and Tregothnan. St Mawes, with its picturesque harbour lies a short distance from the hotel.

The National Maritime Museum at Falmouth is not much further, and Truro, with its wonderful cathedral, indoor market and cobbled streets makes a lovely day out. Surrounded by National Trust land and close to the South West Coastal Path, the hotel also offers instant access to some of Cornwall’s most beautiful walks. However you choose to spend your days, The Nare makes a great base.

As Cornwall’s only four red star hotel you will find the staff at The Nare friendly, welcoming and ready to look after you. They excel in good old-fashioned service and are always on hand to ensure that everything you need is in place for a perfect stay. Their high standards have ensured The Nare has remained the highest rated hotel in Cornwall for 15 years, with many guests returning regularly to relax and enjoy this special place.
