Fireworks at the ready, hot chocolate by the bonfire and music in the Living Space, here’s a taster of what to expect during our three-night New Year break.

Eat and Drink

Dinner plans are in place, the breakfast waffles are on stand-by and our menus have been finalised. Find out more about Emily Scott Food, dining in Zacry's and our new festive cocktail list. 

Twelve drinks of Christmas

Our mixologists have been shaking, mixing and muddling in preparation. Local suppliers come together to create our Twelve Drinks of Christmas cocktail list. If you can't wait, we're sharing our Cornish Christmas punch recipe which will be served when you arrive in The Living Space.  

Emily Scott Food

Following the success of Emily Scott’s summer pop-up in the Bay, we’re delighted to announce she will be returning permanently from March 2021. Over the festive period, Emily Scott Food will be welcoming you at an exclusive pop-up event in the Watchful Mary space.

Dining in Zacry’s

A changing daily menu focusing on seasonality of flavours with an expansive wine list to match. The food in Zacry’s will match the festive spirit, local fish, roasted meats and winter vegetables.

The Living Space

Laidback live music will sound out each evening from The Living Space. Sink into the sofas with a view of the Bay as you choose from our new cocktail menu, lunch or dinner menu. You can order room service from The Living Space until 6pm every day too. 

New Year's plans

Escape rooms, bodyboarding sessions, hot chocolate around the bonfire and games on the sand. Live music in The Living Space, champagne toasts and fireworks on the beach. We have plenty planned to keep you busy, here is a taste of what to expect.

Escape room

Can you and your team escape in time? You'll have 45 minutes to work through the challenges and find the code to 'escape'. Takes place on New Year's Eve from 8:30am to 4:45pm.

Bodyboarding with the Extreme Academy

On New Year's Eve and on New Year's Day from 10am until 1pm, join our bodyboarding session or hire any equipment. Places are limited so do book in advance, using the app or contacting the team. The Extreme Academy has all the kit to keep you warm. 

Beach games

A selection of traditional Cornish beach games around the bonfire on New Year's Day. Expect hula-hooping, frisbee, golf and a few surprises. Suitable for all ages and abilities.

Bonfires and hot chocolate

Fill flasks with hot chocolate, wrap up warm and gather around the bonfire on New Year's Day from midday. For the competitive amongst you, beach games will also be taking place.
