Wrap yourself up…
Our four night Christmas break
This Christmas at Watergate Bay the tree will be up, the log fire will be crackling and you will be able to rely on the weather – it’ll be bracing. But the pool will be inviting and the welcome will be warm.
Wednesday 23 December
Shopping. Tick. That’s it. It’s time to drop your bags and put your feet up. Or go for a stroll along the beach. Or have a dip in the pool. Or treat yourself to a treatment. Or have a spin in the cardio room. Take a nap? Whatever. Wednesday is for mulled wine and making it up as you go along, welcome to Watergate Bay. The kids will be happy with Christmas crafts, games, carol singing and cake. Dinner is a choice between an Italian affair at Fifteen Cornwall or contemporary American flavours in Zacry’s.
Dreaming of a white Christmas? Snow isn’t guaranteed, but sand is a given. Swap the sledge for a surfboard and try a surf lesson on us. Surf lessons and sports hire from the Extreme Academy is available all day, as are lots of activities for the kids, indoors and out. For that cosy alpine feel take a dip in the cliff top hot tub. Back indoors there will be bubbly, early evening carols and canapés around the tree, dinner in Zacry’s, or Fifteen Cornwall if you didn’t go the night before, and laid-back entertainment in The Living Space.
Push the boat out with a champagne breakfast while the kids listen out for Father Christmas. He’s stopping at Watergate Bay, with gifts for all the children. Christmas lunch is a festive feast. We’ll peel the spuds and light the candles. You turn up and pull the crackers. Later, a walk on the beach will work wonders. Or find the fire, a book, and a footstool in Swim Club. For kids, there will be lots of new things to do. In the evening, there’s a buffet supper in The Living Space.
After a leisurely brunch you can gather for our legendary family challenge. Go surfing with the Extreme Academy, while the pool, with its view, is going nowhere. Take time over tea, linger over dinner in Zacry’s and then decamp, if you like, to The Living Space. The entertainment will be relaxed and fun.
Sunday 27 December
To make your final day lasting, rise early, wrap up warm and stimulate the senses outside. Then bring on breakfast – make it big, make it waffles! And catch up with friends and family by the pool.
