We are busy getting our Reindeers in a row ready for the festive season. It is a truly magical time of year, with twinkling fairy lights, the smell of open log fires, mulled wine and not forgetting delicious, warm mince pies with lashings of Cornish clotted cream.
The run up to Christmas can be hectic with Christmas presents to find, Christmas cakes to bake, decorations to put up, lights to untangle, school nativities and work Christmas parties to juggle. Why not take a break from it all and come and relax in our home from home, we’ve got just what you need to recharge before the big day itself. You can meander through the beautiful shops of Fowey and tick some presents off your list with some truly unique gifts for your loved one – or why not treat them to a gift from us – we have a huge array of gift vouchers to choose from or Elemis gift sets in the Spa.
If you want someone else to do all the hard work this Christmas – we have limited availability on our Christmas package. Join us from 23rd or 24th December for festive fun for all the family, we enjoy a visit from Father Christmas’ real reindeers on 23rd December with a brass band and toasting marshmallows on an open fire, it’s the perfect start to get you in the festive mood for your Christmas break.
Getting out and about there are lots of Christmas markets happening in the area where you will find unique gifts, handmade in the local area. The Fowey Christmas Market takes place from 30th November – 2nd December – opening on Friday evening with Santa arriving rather unusually by boat (as the elves are busy getting the sleigh ready for Christmas Eve) followed by the big Christmas light switch on and fireworks display. The market and shops are open until 8.30pm and there will be mulled wine flowing from the local shop keepers. The market re-opens again on Saturday and Sunday for more shopping – don’t forget to stop for a coffee in the local cafes too!

Eden Project - Father Christmas experience from 24th November – 24th December. With letters to sort, presents to deliver, and a very important sleigh to prepare. Father Christmas is keen to meet you and your children, so they can help. Inside the cosy tent you’ll get to see ‘behind the scenes’, including the elves’ bunkbeds, the pigeonholes full of children’s letters, and all the stockings laid out ready for the big day. After settling down for a story beside an open fire, each child can enjoy a special moment with the man in red.
You can also enjoy a skate on Eden’s own ice rink followed by a nice hot chocolate and marshmallows to warm up!
