Wake up to the ocean
Relax by the beach

Winter rarely arrives in Cornwall and December is the perfect time for wandering empty beaches and striking out for coastpath adventures. It's all right there, moments from your beachside hideaway.

Christmas on the beach
Coastal festive hideaway Christmas on the beach

What better way to soak in the festive season than right next to one of the UK's finest beaches in one of our bijoux beachside bolt-holes, looking out over the ocean and moments from the sanctuary of St Michaels Resort.

Our five-night break begins on 23 December (it's Christmas Eve-eve, after all). Arrive and unwind in your fully-equipped beachside residence with a thoughtful Christmas hamper as you decorate your very own Christmas tree and inhale the coastal views. Once you've settled in, the spa is available for some drift-time and Falmouth's range of local shops and boutiques are sure to solve any last-minute gifting dilemmas.

On Christmas Eve, there is plenty of time to explore the beauty of the Cornish coastline before sauntering up to St Michaels Resort to ignite your Christmas spirit with carols, live festive music and steamy mulled wine.

A Christmas Day feast
Sit back and enjoy A Christmas Day feast

Wake up by the ocean on Christmas Day. You might begin pondering the possibility of joining the locals for a quick splash in the chilly seas at nearby Gylly Beach. The brave will be rewarded with hot chocolate and a fresh pastry to accompany that post-plunge sense of satisfaction. The wise will cheer them on from the sanctuary beach residence balconies.

No one likes spending Christmas day slaving over a hot stove, especially when you are on holiday. That's why our Executive Chef has hand-picked a festive culinary hamper for your arrival, stuffed with everything you need for a fabulous feast. With Christmas dinner sorted, all you have to worry about is whether you'll be diving into the annual family game of Monopoly or soaking in the ocean views.

And then, as the Christmas glow continues into Boxing Day, broaden your celebration with some ever-so-gentle Cornish wellbeing - lap it up in our indoor swimming pool, join the festive fit-stars in the gym or indulge in a spa treatment. Our world-class health club and spa facilities make it a pleasure to keep the balance this Christmas.

Fully equipped
Ready for festive feasting Fully equipped

Every beach residence includes a fully-equipped kitchen, perfect for festive feasting. And if the weather allows, pop a layer on, grab a mug of steaming festive cheer and head out onto your deep ocean or garden-facing balcony for some winter alfresco living and one of those 'only in Cornwall' moments!

 Bring the dog
Festive four-pawed greetings Bring the dog

Many of our luxurious beach residences are dog-friendly*, with space for your prize pooch to curl up and get cozy as part of the celebrations. Almost all of Cornwall's beaches have no dog restrictions during the winter, so the scene is set for a santa-themed scamper across the sand!

All pet stays include a dog bed, blanket and treats.
