About Tresanton

Originally created in the 1940’s as a yachtsman’s club, Tresanton is a cluster of old houses on the waterfront in St Mawes. Tresanton has a casual yet elegant atmosphere, very much in keeping with our waterside location. 

Weddings at Tresanton are a very special occasion, designed specifically for you. Whether it be an intimate wedding for the two of you, or if you prefer the hotel to be exclusively yours, we endeavour to create the wedding day you have dreamt of. 

Exclusive Hire of the hotel is available from September through March, with a minimum two night stay required at the weekend and one night Sunday to Thursday. Wedding ceremonies of between 2-50 guests are offered all year round, with the exception of August, Easter, Christmas and New Year. 

The hotel has 30 rooms and suites, with 28 boasting sea views. Furnished individually by Olga Polizzi, some have their own private terrace. Unless the hotel is booked exclusively, ten rooms is the maximum number that we can offer for your party. We are happy to recommend alternative accommodation locally should it be required to suit your family and friends. 

We have a variety of venues available at the hotel with various capacities. Our restaurant can cater for up to 70 guests, The Mosaic Room can cater for up to 50 guests, the Nook our private waterside terrace can cater for up to 30 guests and our Beach Club which is three levels of terrace overlooking the waterside can cater for up to 50 guests. We enjoy smaller intimate celebrations too and welcome just the two of you for a private candlelit dinner or wedding ceremony. 

Tavern beach is located in front of the hotel and is easily accessible. Being just a short stroll from the hotel makes it the perfect spot for photographs. 

Due to the intimate nature of the hotel, Tresanton does not cater for evening functions with music and dancing, unless you are taking the hotel on an Exclusive Hire basis. Other locations such as the St Mawes Hotel or St Mawes Castle can be hired for your evening reception. 

Tresanton holds a Civil licence so marriages and civil partnerships can take place at the hotel. Once you have confirmed our availability, please contact Cornwall Council in Truro on 0300 1234 181 for more information on their services offered. Should you prefer a church service, we can provide contact details for St Mawes and St Just in Roseland churches, along with St Mawes catholic church. 

Your wedding will not just begin and end with the ceremony at Tresanton. There are beautiful coastal paths for romantic walks and in the warmer months the hotel’s classic Italian racing yacht Pinuccia is available for private charter for up to six people. 

We work closely with a select number of talented local contacts and suppliers, which we would be delighted to recommend to help take care of all the details on your wedding day.
