At the start of February, Andy and I treated ourselves to a weekend break in beautiful St Mawes. It’s a stunning setting for a weekend or long weekend trip, so in case you’re looking for some short break inspiration or are thinking about booking a last minute luxurious Easter weekend break, I thought I’d share my top tips for a luxurious weekend in St Mawes.
3. Have lunch in the St Mawes Hotel
We had fully intended to visit the St Mawes Hotel for a Sunday roast, but that all changed when we saw the menu!
I adore lobster and really enjoy treating myself to it once in a while, and since we were on holiday…
Beautiful, thick chunks of garlic butter covered lobster served with fine chips was exactly what I wanted on a cold, wet Sunday afternoon.
Topped off with a dark chocolate brownie with raspberry coulis and sorbet…
It was a perfect end to the holiday.
And who can forget affogato: my favaourite dessert (as I mentioned at Theo Randall).
The roasts did also look incredible and were very generous portion sizes.
4. Stay at St Mawes Retreats
Take a group of friends, organise a university reunion or just plan to go away with your family for a few days. Whatever the occasion, St Mawes Retreats has some really beautiful luxury accommodation.
Fully kitted out with a fire that you’ll never want to leave, board games and you can even hire a private chef for the evening.
It’s the perfect spot for a serene weekend away.
