Country House Arrangements

To help you plan your visit there are following a few notes which might make your stay more comfortable


The Nare Chauffeur Service is available for guests to travel in comfort from their own homes to The Nare and back again. The fleet includes the luxurious Range Rover and equally luxurious Mercedes 8 seated vehicle. The Range Rover, Mercedes and a 7-seater Ford Galaxy are also available to take guests on local excursions, whether it be to local gardens, Tate St Ives, the Maritime Museum, Land's End, the Minack Theatre or shopping trips to Falmouth or Truro. Excursions are available by appointment at reasonable rates, or at £120 per half day (4 hours) or £240 per full day (8 hours).


There is a “Jacket and Tie” guideline in the more formal Dining Room in the evening and a more relaxed atmosphere on the Quarterdeck. This is a guideline, since there are no set rules, and as an indicator so guests know what to expect in the evening. We ask as a courtesy to others to respect the dress style that most guests prefer.


Children under seven are expected on the Quarterdeck for Children’s Early Supper between 5.30pm-6.15pm and not in the Dining Room for dinner. For those children who are more grown up and would like to dine with their parents Family Dining will be available between 6.30pm and 7.30pm on the Quarterdeck and a modified menu will be available between 7pm and 7.30pm in the Dining Room. For orders after these times only the full à la carte or Table d’ hôte menu will be served in the respective restaurants and the full set price charged.


The hotel boats operate from April to September. Alice Rose, the 38ft classic gentleman's motor launch has scheduled sailings on Tuesdays and Fridays. Guests may book a space on a scheduled sailing (up to a maximum of eight), for £95 per person, which includes return transfers to the boat and a delicious picnic lunch served on board. Private charters with her Coxswain and Chief Steward are available by appointment from £480 per day. Maggie O'Nare, the 22ft Cornish Crabber sailing boat, is available for skippered private charter at £230 per half day or £290 per full day.
