A Grade 11 listed Country House Hotel dating back to 1625 yet it has so much charm character and warmth mainly due to the owners. The extensive grounds surround the hotel amongst such beautiful scenery where wild deer freely roam and it is indescribably quiet.
The Rame Peninsula is a hidden gem in Cornwall and Friary Manor is down a drive almost hidden from the road in an area of outstanding natural beauty. To the east is a coastal path and a short walk to the historic fishing villages of Kingsand and Cawsand unspoilt by time with colour washed cottages in narrow streets together with its safe beaches for a variety of water activities.
To the west a short walk past Maker Church into the 800 acres of Mount Edgcumbe Park, the House well worth a visit, together with the sawmill and rare bat sanctuary followed by a break for coffee at the Orangery within the formal gardens. Nearby is Cremyll with a walk on ferry to the Mayflower Steps in Plymouth. The car ferry running regularly from Torpoint to Plymouth.
The bedrooms at Friary Manor Hotel are really comfortable with so much space to breathe and to enjoy the surroundings with one of the many benefit of not being able to receive a mobile telephone signal which added to our peace and quiet.
The willingness of the owners’ to accommodate guests is a unique character, reminiscent of being a home from home experience and one can understand how it is an ideal atmosphere for Wedding receptions. The breakfast menu is extensive and personally cooked for you so one can appreciate it may take time, meals are available in the evenings, to order as they are cooked for you by an excellent chef. Sunday lunches are really quality and value for money and Cornish teas a must.
Understandably there are no evening meals served on Sunday and the Hotel is closed on Monday apart from guests but this we felt added to our stay for it becomes even more peaceful if that is possible.
We can quite understand some of the previous remarks made but this is surely the very unique nature and desire to help all the visitors of Friary Manor Hotel - yes we have stayed on a regular basis and long may it continue. Thank you Jan, Vic and Nick.
