the St Enodoc Hotel

Rock, Cornwall, PL27 6LA

Why it makes the list

The St Enodoc is a delightful, contemporary take on a traditional seaside hotel in chic Rock. This coastal retreat is flooded with light, punctuated with flairs of colour and design. The St Enodoc is a great example of Cornish style, relaxed, elegant interiors embracing a natural ocean-inspired colour palette which helps to bring the outdoors in. With a welcoming brasserie, fine dining restaurant, an outdoor pool, treatment rooms, and views to die for, it’s an idyllic base from which to explore glorious North Cornwall.

The St Enodoc is surrounded by some of Cornwall's best beaches including Rock beach, Daymer Bay and Polzeath. A regular foot ferry runs from Rock to Padstow, a fantastic option avoiding Padstow’s gridlocked car parks in high season. The Coastal Path offers incredible walks alongside some of Cornwall’s most exquisite coastline. The hotel itself, in its elevated position, commands sweeping views of the Camel Estuary and the terrace offers a particularly special place to kick back and breathe in the Cornish Sea breeze.

Family Suite 110


St. Enodoc offers a great range of room options, from cosy boltholes for two to family suites.

Many rooms have Camel Estuary views and all are sumptuously comfortable, brightly decorated and dotted with quirky, original works of art. Bathrooms are thoughtfully designed and include body products from the local St Kitts Herbery.


Overlooking the Camel Estuary, the St Enodoc’s brasserie is a perfect place to enjoy great food and service in an casual environment. In the summer, food can be enjoyed alfresco on the terrace. From breakfast in the sunshine to cocktails as the sun sets. The kitchen makes great use of the ‘Cornish larder’ serving local Porthilly oysters, fish and lobster landed in Padstow and venison and game in the winter months. The brasserie is relaxed and welcoming, it’s both child friendly and dog friendly.


Those looking for a truly memorable dining experience are well served by Karrek –  the hotel’s fine dining restaurant. Karrek offers an intimate environment serving a nine-course tasting menu, celebrating the best of Cornwall.
