A little festive guide from us, to you...

We have curated some of our favourite things to do around Christmas in Cornwall. From the brilliant Padstow Christmas Festival packed with culinary delights, chef demonstrations and market stalls to ice skating in the iconic biomes at the Eden Project - there is truly something for everyone.

Padstow Christmas Festival

Padstow’s brilliant Christmas festival returns from 7th - 10th December, which features everything from cookery demonstrations, fireworks, music and an extensive Christmas market showcasing some of the best local producers of food, drink and arts & crafts.

Four Boys - Guest Chef Series

Throughout the Padstow Christmas Festival, Four Boys are welcoming a series of guest chefs over the weekend to cook in their kitchen. Chefs include co-founder of the Rocket Store, Alex Key and chefs from the legendary London restaurants, Trullo and Rochelle Canteen.

Ice Skating at The Eden Project

The ultimate family Christmas outing. The Eden Project, most known for its biomes, also hosts an ice rink during the festive period. Lessons are also available for those who are a little more ‘Bambi on ice’!

Yoga + Pilates at Highcliffe

Take a moment for yourself, and relax into a nourishing Yoga or Pilates class in our studio, with some of our brilliant teachers. We now offer 1-1 Reformer Pilates sessions, which are great for building strength and stretching.

Polzeath Christmas Day Swim

The big dip usually starts around 11am, and is strictly a no wetsuit affair (although we have seen a few Santa outfits in our time). Our top tip? Bring a flask of mulled wine to warm up with afterwards. Mince pies are nice too…

Heligan Night Garden

Immerse yourself in an enchanting lantern experience, set amidst the atmospheric Lost Gardens of Heligan. The journey will take you along the magical garden trail, through woodlands and gardens all beautifully lit with installations and lanterns.

Explore at your own pace, stop to take in the smells, toast marshmallows by the fire, and enjoy seasonal warming take away refreshments and meals to round off a truly festive Winter's evening.

We are offering up to 30% off selected properties over Christmas, so come and enjoy all of what Cornwall has to offer over the festive period.
