A familiar name to ancient mariners navigating the rocky shores around this rugged area of coast, this August Rock is definitely somewhere you will want to rest and stay a while. Set in a secluded woodland corner of a country hotel estate – the Budock Vean Hotel – and with wonderful views across the hotel grounds and gardens, this fabulous detached retreat has so much to offer for a holiday at any time of the year.
Guests can enjoy all the benefits of golf club membership during their stay as well as discounts for the restaurant, use of the swimming pool, sauna, spa and tennis courts. Furnished to a luxury standard throughout, equipped with under-floor heating, WiFi, Smart TV and the most comfortable high-quality beds, this is a boutique-style holiday home in every sense of the word; self-catering independence with all the benefits of staying at a four star hotel.
This beautiful area of the Helford River has so much to offer on your doorstep including the fabulous gardens at Trebah and Glendurgan and you can find kayaking, fishing and boat trips all from the hotel's private foreshore. Take the ferry to a waterside pub, take a long or short walk to explore close by or further afield to Falmouth, Port Navas and Constantine or why not take the ferry across to Helford Village and explore the area across the river.
With 24 hours' notice the hotel can arrange a picnic basket full of tasty treats for you to take with you. The pretty village of Mawnan Smith includes a traditional public house, a local shop with Post Office and the Cornish Maid cafe. When you want a bit more choice, and perhaps a bit of retail therapy, you can be in the maritime town of Falmouth or the Cathedral City of Truro in less than half an hour.
