Make a holiday of your Christmas preparations this year and coincide a short December getaway with one of the magical Cornish Christmas markets.

There are wonderful Christmas markets scattered all over Cornwall celebrating the best of local produce and craftsmanship. Rather than stressing in busy town centres, buy unique gifts from Cornish craft makers and artisan with a cup of mulled cider in hand.

Cornwall is magical in the run up to Christmas – you’ll find festive markets in our fishing villages, twinkling lights reflecting on the water and traditional lantern processions winding through the towns – it really is a time not to be missed.

After all that Christmas shopping, retreat to the warmth of our hotel, rest your tired feet with a massage in our spa and indulge in a delicious dinner in our sea view restaurants.

With prices from £338 for a weekend break for two people sharing a double room on a bed and breakfast basis.

Book your Christmas Market Break.
