On Christmas Eve there will be carols and prosecco. After dinner Midnight Mass at the church in St Just-in-Roseland. On return hot cocoa is served before bed. During the night, elves visit each door with stockings for all.
On Christmas Day, a roaring fire welcomes guests. Our cinema shows the Queen’s speech while the sitting room table groans under the weight of cheese, mince pies and panettone. We usually receive a visit by the real Father Christmas.
Christmas Day Lunch
£95 including a Christmas bellini, three course lunch, ginger tea and mince pies, cheese and a present from Father Christmas.
On Boxing Day take a walk along the coast path or watch The Greatest Showman in the cinema.
THE BEST UK HOTELS FOR CHRISTMAS
Condé Nast Traveller
The prospect of Midnight Mass at St Just in Roseland – a 13th-century church in semi-tropical gardens that Betjeman described as the ‘most beautiful churchyard on earth’ – would be reason enough to spend Christmas in nearby St Mawes. Another is Olga Polizzi’s gracious and grown-up, yet very family-friendly 30-room Hotel Tresanton, on the edge of Cornwall’s south coast. Mass is preceded by carols and followed by stockings for all, the Queen speaks on a big screen in the cinema, and on Boxing Day you can walk along the Carrick Roads – the estuary of the River Fal – by way of a castle built by Henry VIII.
