To make the most of a Christmas holiday Cottage stay at Camel Side in Cornwall we have a few festive suggestions here along with our latest availability.
Your Christmas holiday cottage waiting for you
Bring Nature Indoors
When you are relaxing in a beautiful rural location, with just the tinkering of the river to interrupt your thoughts, why not use a little nature to add to the festive decorations? We have a handy pair of scissors in the kitchen draws and plenty of evergreens with ruby red berries all over the estate. Snip away and make your own nature decorations stretch from outside in.
You could even create your own Christmas Day table decoration using nature from the grounds, half a potato and some kitchen foil. (Tip, there is ample in each tray and shelf of the oven). This makes a fun family activity as you relax and plan for the big day.
Out and about at Christmas.
If you are looking for some fun places to visit while you are here on a Christmas holiday I can thoroughly recommend an after dark trip to Padstow to see the harbour all lit up. Why not treat the family to ice skating at The Eden Project after a day seeing the amazing biomes. Or simply take in the wonderful views from up at Rough Tor on Bodmin Moor or a bracing stroll across the sandy beaches. For the brave there is always the challenge of a Christmas Day dip. That's my personal favourite, full wet suit of course.
If you are worrying about your Christmas meal then we have an excellent local farm shop to order a turkey or any other meat of your choice and all the supermarkets are within 20 minutes or will deliver to Camel Side Cottages for you.
