This privately owned, family run, luxury 4 star hotel really does have it all! Budock Vean is an ideal base when visiting Cornwall. The 65 acres of gardens incorporate woodland, parkland, formal and informal areas, valley garden, pond and a natural foreshore to the Helford River. Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens are within walking distance.

Guests can also enjoy unlimited use of the well designed on site 9 hole golf course, at no extra charge. Leisure facilities include a spectacular indoor pool, sauna, health spa, outdoor hot tub, tennis courts and snooker. All bedrooms are well presented with every comfort and facility provided. A few select luxury self-catering cottages are also on site. Head Chef Darren Kelly and his team focus on creating menus with Cornish sourced seafood, meats and vegetables.

An award winning combination where service, presentation and atmosphere are first class. From the jetty, a ferry can take you to a riverside pub or enjoy a private charter on the "Hannah-Molly" - splendid and unique - this is Budock Vean. Visit, stay, enjoy!
