Celebrate Christmas at the Polurrian
Enjoy an unforgettable Christmas with us on Cornwall's beautiful Lizard peninsula.
Why not do Christmas differently this year? With stunning scenery, a beautiful beach on the doorstep and miles of the South West Coast Path to explore, as well as a great range of activities and entertainment in the hotel, relax, unwind and let us do all the hard work!
This festive season, enjoy delicious local treats from the hotel’s kitchen, expertly mixed cocktails with a twist from the bar, along with three-course lunches paired with wines and a mouth-watering festive afternoon tea...
On arrival at the hotel, you will have the opportunity to enjoy mulled wine and mince pies to help get you in the festive mood. There’ll be a Christmas Cinema club, mocktail masterclass for the kids and live music by super-talented local artists; and the beautifully decorated Vista will be a great place to relax with a glass of fizz and take in the incredible view.
Christmas Eve will be magical evening with local carol singers bringing in the festive cheer.
Christmas Day will begin with a Buck’s Fizz breakfast; an exceptional festive lunch will follow, and a mouth-watering buffet dinner will be served in the evening. For the hardy, the annual Boxing Day Swim at Poldhu Cove is not for the faint-hearted (no wetsuits!) but is definitely fun to join in or just watch. Last year the hotel had plenty of guests who continued the festive activities and enjoyed a brisk swim!
For those who prefer a less bracing experience, enjoy a leisurely swim in the hotel’s indoor 30ft heated pool, work out in our fully equipped weights and cardio gym or visit the spa for some well deserved pampering, choosing from a selection of Elemis treatments including an age-defying facial and a deep tissue massage – perfect for relaxing, rejuvenating and recharging the batteries.
Sight-seeing is always great fun, and visits to St Michael’s Mount (home to giants, according to legend!), Trebah Gardens and the Cornish Seal Sanctuary, located just up the road in Gweek, are all a must. Wrap up warm and enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the South West Coast Path, the UK's longest and best-loved national trail, that runs right past the hotel. A monument to Marconi, who sent the first transatlantic wireless signal from there in 1901 is nearby and there are idyllic, secluded coves (Church and Poldhu) as well as medieval landmarks to discover.
Our team know the area well, so if there is a part of the coast you'd like to explore, ask at reception and we'll advise you on the best route to take. Plus, your four-legged best friend has access to all the beaches which were off limits in the summer. Cornwall is a paradise of calm, open spaces – a true retreat and what better time to take the kids away than for Christmas or new Year?
