Christmas breaks

Your Christmas break, your way

Festive activities, entertainment and feasting

Four different restaurants

Contact our reservations team to book

Twelve days of Christmas

The halls will be decked, the trees up, fires stoked and miles of empty beach waiting. Christmas and New Year at Watergate Bay is always special.

This year we’re doing things a little differently – handing the reins to you, and giving you the freedom to plan the Watergate break that suits you and your family best.

Your Christmas traditions

Presents first thing or post-feast? Leisurely beach stroll or life-affirming sea swim? We all have our different Christmas traditions.

Instead of pre-packaged stays, we’ll be offering a festive bed & breakfast rate, available from 21 December to 1 January.

From £365/ night based on two people sharing a standard room.
