A Cornish Christmas

End the year on a high and join us at The Idle Rocks for a wonderful, Cornish Christmas celebration, by the sea.

Join us on Saturday 23rd December to kick-start the celebrations.

Enjoy a festive afternoon tea on arrival, followed by a 3-course dinner that evening.

On Christmas Eve, we invite you to soak up the charm of the area with a wine tasting of our finest flavours. Having worked up an appetite, Matt Haggath, Head Chef, treats you to a delicious 3-course dinner.

On Christmas Day, awake to find yourself in the most idyllic area of Cornwall. The Fal Estuary is the perfect backdrop to exchange gifts and start the day with a full Cornish breakfast. Before your Christmas Day feast, take the opportunity to enjoy a crisp walk along the picturesque harbour or perhaps a festive tipple in the lounge.

To end an unforgettable day, test your mettle in the infamous 2023 Christmas quiz and a festive supper.

Boxing Day starts at a leisurely pace with brunch, then the day is yours to enjoy. A Boxing Day Favourites supper awaits you in the evening to top off the festivities in style.

Plus, get cosy in the Hidden Cinema with three festive screenings each day.
