An especially intimate celebration

We have stopped accepting bookings for Christmas to ensure that you have all the space you need to really make this your home for the festive season. From the moment you arrive, there will be log fires, glittering garlands, and spectacular dining along with miles of soul-stirring coastline and rugged countryside, uninterrupted seascapes, crisp morning strolls and lazy afternoons... all waiting to be enjoyed.

Your time is your own own to be enjoyed. Pack bike, books, kites, wellies, winter wetsuits... anything goes, this is YOUR  Christmas! Our team will be here to bring some extra festive sparkle, delivering some little surprises here and there, and treating you to some exquisite dining experiences so you can relax and indulge.

The four days of Christmas...

For guests not already staying with us, this will be the day when the waiting is finally over, it's time to arrive and settle into your home for Christmas! We will endeavour to have your room ready early so you can enjoy some precious relaxation in The Alchemist Spa, or head out to explore the coast. The Bay Brasserie will be open until 5pm should you be peckish after your  journey.

In the evening (7:00pm) there will be a five-course supper with Champagne, served in Doyle's. A sparkling affair, black tie is recommended.


Settle in

CHRISTMAS DAY Let it snow...

After breakfast, why not head out for a quick surf or a brisk walk to stir your appetite?

The feast of all feasts - Christmas Day Lunch - will be served in the opulent Lancaster Suite at 3:00pm. Enjoy five delicious courses with Champagne included.

For supper in the evening, a beautifully presented smörgåsbord of treats will served to bedrooms from 8:00pm.


Let it snow...

BOXING DAY You set the pace

After breakfast, a brisk walk along Britain's Best Beach will do wonders to work off some of yesterday's over indulgence! The Bay Brasserie will be open until 5pm for lunch.

Well-rested and happy, take your seat for a candlelit five-course dinner in Doyle's (6:00pm  -  8:00pm).
