The Nare hotel is Cornwall's top luxury hotel. With breath taking views, two restaurants to dine at and a spa, The Nare country house hotel accommodates all your needs for a luxurious escape to the coast.

Thriller novelist Jon Stock, former writer at The Daily Telegraph, has penned a new spy book set on the south coast of Cornwall based at The Nare hotel. I was invited down to the Sloane Club in Chelsea recently for the launch of the book, featuring wonderful seaside-inspired canapes, champagne, and a discussion with the author himself.

Toby Ashworth, proprietor of The Nare Hotel, talked guests through a typical stay at The Nare and what they'd be able to do and explore while visiting the Roseland Peninsula. Jon Stock then took over to explain the synopsis of the novel without giving too much away: 15 year old Noah always looks forward to his annual family stay at The Nare in Cornwall, however, 'Russian roommate, Alexei, says something that will change his summer – and his life – forever'. The tale follows an exciting journey through land, sea and love, with twists that don't disappoint.


Jon explained his writing process, research and how he incorporated characters into the novel from the people he met while writing in Cornwall. He thanked The Nare for their gracious hospitality while he was writing the book and happily proceeded to sign copies for guests.

Fellow guests in attendance also included CEO of Small Luxury Hotels Filip Boyen, CEO of Pride of Britain Peter Hancock, CEO of Good Hotel Guide Richard Fraiman among others. All in all, it was a lovely evening with great company to celebrate a 'thrilling' novel!
