Country House Arrangements

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


It is recommended that guests make use of The Nare's Map and Directions to ensure one's journey to the hotel is as straight forward as possible. Although a few Cornish lanes are required to reach the hotel, the narrow ones can be avoided by using these directions and following the brown signs from Tregony (5 miles inland), ignoring the Sat Nav if necessary.


This unique Nare service is available to chauffeur guests from anywhere in the country (home address/airports/hotels) to The Nare in either of the two comfortable Nare Range Rovers or the larger Mercedes. It is usually quoted as an inclusive Quintessential Country House rate and arranged by appointment at the time of booking. Daily excursions to explore the beautiful Cornish countryside, gardens and attractions are also available at the following rates: per half day at £250, per full day at £380.


The Nare is a traditional country house hotel. In the evening there is a more formal dress code than is usually found in many other more modern and casual establishments. It is expected that guests change for dinner and dress for the occasion in both the Dining Room and on The Quarterdeck. Most guests prefer to follow a jacket and tie guideline. This is purely a guideline, since there are no set rules, and is mentioned as a helpful indicator so guests may feel comfortable and know what they may expect to find. Whilst no one is going to tell anyone what to wear - they may quietly decline to serve stylishly-challenged scruffs! One asks simply, as a courtesy to others, to respect an atmosphere 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 7.00pm 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. Grown up prices for grown up behaviour!


Both Private Charters and Scheduled Sailings (shared with other guests) may be booked in advance on Alice Rose, The Nare’s traditional 38ft motor launch. Private Charters (your own boat for the day with coxswain, chief steward, lunch and transfers) are available by appointment from £800 per day and can accommodate up to 10 guests (£960). Sailings take place during the summer months from the beginning of April to the end of September weather permitting.
