Bambrella looks good on Idle Rocks …

We are lucky enough to have supplied to many historical, picturesque and generally quite famous places in over 20 years of trading. And perhaps one of the most idyllic of these is The Idle Rocks at St Mawes on Cornwall’s Roseland Peninsula where we supplied a bulk order of Bambrella Parasols for the dining area overlooking the picturesque harbour.

What are The Idle Rocks?




The Idle Rocks has been a part of the lovely Cornish coastal village of St Mawes since 1913 and was originally built on the original site of the old bakery.

With stunning views out over the harbour and the Atlantic Ocean this luxury hotel with individually themed bedrooms and fine dining restaurant is now a focal point of the local community and a popular holiday destination with people far and wide.

Dining under the Bambrella at Idle Rocks


In fact, the quality of the cuisine was, and still is, a focal point of The Idle Rocks reputation. This first started in the 1950’s when it was awarded a 2AA Rosettes Status for Culinary Achievement offering French cuisine and service provided by French staff and chefs from the continent.

This was featured in The Times newspaper in July 1954.

And why the Bambrella Parasol?



Obviously in a coastal environment the weather plays a big part when buying any furniture that will be used regularly outdoors.

It must be able to stand the test of time against heavy coastal winds and rain that is high in its salt content.

The Bambrella Parasol has the perfect specification to withstand this.

  • The laminate bamboo pole, hub and spars are wind tested to withstand winds up to 90 mph.

  • Stainless steel fixings are rust free and, again, offer the ultimate in strength.

  • Olefin fabrics offer warmth without the weight, wick moisture meaning they dry quickly and have a colour-fastness of between 7 and 8.


And the canopies are available in a choice of 8 colours making the Bambrella suitable for a variety of outdoor spaces.

For further information on the Bambrella Parasol please call our Showroom in the Midlands.
