The History of The St Enodoc

The St Enodoc is a privately owned Cornish boutique Hotel in an exquisite hideaway with sweeping views over the Camel Estuary, Rock.

Originally built in 1924 as a private house, St Enodoc was transformed in 1999 into one of Cornwall’s first seaside-chic boutique hotels. It’s a modern coastal retreat flooded with light, delivering a fresh and contemporary style with an emphasis on brightly coloured furnishings and fabrics.


The hotel was bought in January 2019 by a family with a long standing love of the hotel and area. They hope to maintain the high levels of standards that the hotel is renowned for and keep the focus on supporting local wherever possible. The hotel is managed by family members Lucy and James Strachan.

Our Ethos

We’ve a commitment to using local produce which means we can embrace the Seasons and use what is fresh and available to us in and around the area of North Cornwall. We’re also fortunate to have our family farm Made-Well close by, using our meat and vegetables where possible. Made-Well Farm is a Community Interest Project which supports learning disabled people. Our Chef works hand in hand with the farm and local suppliers and artisans to create an uncomplicated, simple British menu, with an emphasis on clean, seasonal flavours.

Our ethos for supporting everything local to us is also reflected on the walls of St Enodoc. We’ve good relations with talented, local artists and display their artwork throughout. We don’t charge a fee, simply ask them to donate a piece each year to our charity auction in September ( details here https://app.galabid.com/pink/items ). We’re proud supporters of Nick Reader, Janet Shearer, Yvonne Coomber, Melanie McDonald to name a few. All artwork is for sale and no commission is taken.

Next time you’re with us for a coffee on the terrace or a spot of afternoon tea, look at our current display. Or if you’re staying with us, why not take a piece of Cornish art home with you.
