Christmas in Cornwall

Christmas and New Year is a time of celebration and reflection (plus chocolate and presents!) and when you spend a Christmas and New Year in Cornwall, you can do just that - it's wonderful. Traditional harbourside villages light up with fantastic Christmas lights, and festive food festivals give you a chance to sample some local seasonal fare.

With time to relax and enjoy yourselves, at Creekside Cottages we ensure that Christmas is a special time, holiday cottages are festively decorated and you just need to arrive and get cosy.

The shorter winter days can be ones to savour and we have often spend part of a bright Christmas Day on the beach for a family gathering, a walk or a game of rounders and a few nibbles to keep us going whilst the turkey is cooking!

Whether you enjoy a bracing winter walk on the beach or coastal footpath, or a cosy warm up by a wood burning stove, we have the perfect holiday accommodation for you.

If it's sharing your Christmas holiday with a group of friends, a quiet one for two, or with the whole family, we can guarantee your accommodation, you just need to bring the Christmas presents!

Should you fancy a trip out during your holiday, there are still events and sights to get involved in during your Christmas break in Cornwall:

Christmas lights in Mousehole

An annual event and a lovely sight. Once lit in mid December, the lights then stay on until early January. Floating displays of colourful Christmas lights light up Mousehole harbour and streets. You'll see a fantastic display of sea serpents, fishing boats and whales colourfully lighting up one of Cornwall's most welcoming harbours. Mousehole Lights Website
