Budock Vean Hotel

Hotel and holiday homes set in 65 acres of gardens, woodlands and parkland golf course, this is a haven for peace and quiet. With a spa, holiday homes, tennis courts, boat trips and kayaking on site, guests can be as active or as relaxed as they wish.

What makes a stay at Budock Vean Hotel unique?

This is a real hidden gem. Off the beaten track but not too far from town, this traditional country house hotel has acres of grounds, very quiet, no traffic, and plenty to do nearby so guests don't even need a car. Just switch off from the world and take it easy. The friendly team are a wealth of local knowledge and will do all they can to ensure guests enjoy their break.

What are the rooms and facilities on offer at Budock Vean Hotel?

Half the hotels' rooms have been completely refurbished, therefore guests should make sure they choose a Signature room if they want something a little more modern, Standard and Superior rooms take dogs and offer a more country house style of decor. If they would like a spa treatment during their stay, make sure to book well in advance. Leave room for a traditional Cornish Cream Tea in the afternoon out on the sun trap terrace. There's a full-size snooker table so guests can practice being Ronnie O'Sullivan, or hire some clubs and play 9 or 18 holes of golf. Plenty of comfy lounges to just sit and relax with a good book.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Falmouth area?

Guests can take boat and kayaking trips from the hotel's private foreshore. Trebah and Glendurgan gardens are within walking distance, as is the pretty waterside Ferryboat Inn. Lots of great walks along the coast path, top tip - spend the day walking to Falmouth along the coast, lunch at a friendly beach cafe, then get the bus back! Falmouth has the fantastic Maritime Museum and Pendennis Castle, as well as boat trips across the bay to St Mawes. Further afield St Michael's Mount, Land's End, Minack Theatre and Eden Project are all worthy day visits.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

The hotel's stylish new restaurant serves up a new menu each evening with the best of local produce. Lunch is available in the conservatory and afternoon tea is daily from 3-5pm. Nearby the Ferryboat Inn and Shipwrights Arms are traditional waterside pubs with great seafood. The cafes and Trebah and Glendurgan are great for lunch while visiting. Falmouth is just 6 miles away with a wide choice of restaurants serving food from around the globe. Book a four course dinner for just £29 per person as part of your stay package. 

Other Information

The Reception team are a font of knowledge and can help arrange Nordic walking, sea fishing and shore angling, tennis lessons (there's 2 courts on site). Plus they can recommend dog friendly beaches, child friendly attractions and for the more daring - plenty of extreme sports to suit adrenaline junkies!
