Much of its surroundings are owned by the National Trust. St Mawes has long been one of the West Country's more desirable and exclusive destinations, with Olga Polizzi's Hotel Tresanton and the chic Idle Rocks Hotel both luring the rich and famous. The village has superbly varied and accessible sailing waters and an active sailing club with a full programme of village regattas, club races and various national championships to cater for all ages.
