For spa relaxation in a picturesque setting, look no further than the 19th-century Cornwall Hotel, Spa & Estate. Centred on an elegant white manor house, this 43-acre retreat combines country charm with a modern, state-of-the-art wellness centre. Futhermore, it’s located in St Austell, just a short drive from the surfy southern coast and The Eden Project.
Tucked away in converted stables, The Clearing Spa sits a short stroll across the grounds from the main building. In here, you’ll find a sauna, steam room and five treatment rooms, where expert therapists apply specially designed therapies by Aromatherapy Associates and The Refinery. There’s also an infinity pool – a stunning feature with retractable glass windows that open out onto the beautiful gardens. It’s no wonder this retreat has garnered a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
How to Get There
We stayed here with a 2 night dinner bed & breakfast package from secret escapes as we wanted a relaxing weekend away. Room was well appointed although a bit far from reception. Staff were lovely and accommodating. Dinner experience could have been a bit better, the fish was slightly dry and did not look fresh. Breakfast was good on both nights. Would stay again. The spa is very good but we found that the jacuzzi was a bit on the cold side so you could not really spend much time relaxing.
We came here for a night away as a couple to have a relaxing time while our baby stayed with relatives.
Lovely place, amazing fish and chips. I had a lavashell full body massage and it was incredible.
Definitely be returning.
Loved the setting of the hotel and even though near main road it didn’t really impinge. Lots of green and trees. Rooms and lodges looked good. Reception and booking excellent and very helpful. Plenty of parking. Loved the decor especially in Bistro and the Junior Suite Clementina. Very clever use of black and texture. Clean and nice. Food in Bistro, especially cream tea, excellent and breakfast lovely. Service at breakfast felt a little rushed on both occasions and service in Bistro was perhaps a little the opposite. Only criticism in room would be flat pillows and cushions - could do with replacing to a more luxurious standard but really not the end of the world. The Clearing spa staff were a little indifferent and we were disappointed not to be able to book treatments and to find the pool very overcrowded - our timing was obviously at fault and I would recommend pre booking treatments and using spa facilities during office hours if possible as less crowded then. Altogether on the whole it was a good experience and we look forward to returning in a few months.
The large estate is amazingly tranquil and green. The lodge that I am staying in is perfect In layout and cleanliness Staff are really hospitable and helpful. Breakfast (full English) is simply scrumptious! Close proximity to town and gardens. Definitely the perfect place for solitude and me time. ❤️
This is a lovely hotel - good rooms, lovely grounds, good location. The staff are friendly and attentive. The food in the restaurant is really good, and although the menu is not extensive, it suited us perfectly - enough choice without being over-whelming. The spa is also excellent.
