Getting in the mood for christmas

Christmas is such a magical time of year, and often the best bit is the build up to the big day. Present shopping, winter walks, festive gatherings, hot chocolates by the fire and festive foodie treats to get you in the mood are just some of the experiences we look forward to in December. What if this year you booked a Cornish Christmas break at Boconnoc? 

Perhaps you want to get the family together before the big day, or you were longing for a good old catch up with friends. Or maybe it’s more of a ‘calm before the storm’ type break you were after, or perhaps a spot of Christmas shopping in the local towns for some unique, locally made gifts? Whatever the purpose of your stay at Boconnoc you can expect a very warm welcome with some additional extras to make your stay thoroughly festive.

Think hot chocolate in your cottage or in the main house ready for your arrival. Festive wreaths adorning your front door. Freshly picked foliage from the estate and a Christmas tree making your accommodation extra cosy, and the fire laid ready for you to light and settle down for the night (please check details for which properties do have fires). For the little ones we will leave a little bag of festive activities to really get them in the mood for the big day. Bring your wellies or walking shoes for the endless amount of walks and exploring available from your front door. Or ask us for the local knowledge on the best places for a spot of Christmas shopping and perhaps a stop for lunch with a glass of something bubbly to really get you in the spirit. 

We still have some availability over Christmas week, should you be looking for a unique way to spend Christmas this year, or why not book in for a relaxing break  between Christmas and New Year?

This festive season we are encouraging our guests to order one of our ‘Slow Food’ hampers to enjoy during their stay.

Inspired by ‘The Slow Food Movement’ which calls for a celebration of food that is locally grown, made to nourish the body, and appreciated when eaten, our guests can get back to nature by harvesting their own vegetables, straight from the earth in our Kitchen Garden, or by using the produce already stored in our winter storage shed.

Book and enjoy our ‘Slow Food’ hamper which includes local meat, fresh vegetables, cream and dairy products from a local dairy, homemade mince pies, and many more delights!
