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.

The hotel was built in the 1920’s by Miss Skinner and Miss Webber. It was very exclusive and hosted Princess Alexandra of Kent during the war. St Enodoc then underwent a large remodelling in 1999 to re-establish it as one of Cornwall’s main 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. 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 nearby pop in for a coffee on the terrace and look at our current display. Or if you’re staying with us, why not purchase a piece of Cornish art to take home with you.
