Located on the Cornish Coast in St Mawes, Olga Polizzi’s boutique hotel is the perfect British hideaway. Tresanton’s unique style is as charming as it is luxurious. The hotel was created within what was a 1940s yacht club, preserving the building's heritage while embracing Polizzi’s own sophisticated style – the groomed gardens and gorgeous terrace are designed with al fresco dining in mind. A highlight of Tresanton is the hotel’s classic wooden yacht, Pinuccia. This slender 8-metre Italian-designed boat was built in 1939 and is available with your own skipper for a whole day of sailing, including picnic and prosecco. There's arguably no better way to experience the breezy West Country.
Need to know: 30 rooms including 12 with terraces, one with its own garden & three family suites; private sailing boat Pinuccia is available from May to the end of September
Best for: Those looking to explore Cornwall's coast or for a romantic getaway
