Christmas & New Year Hotel Breaks

Last year we had the most magnificent Christmas and New Year here at the Watersmeet Hotel.  There was plenty of warming winter sunshine; bright, cloudless, blue skies; a fine dusting of snow on the beach and rocks below the hotel, and the most breathtaking sunsets behind Baggy Point, which I think both guests and staff will remember for a long time to come. 

There’s a lovely atmosphere at the hotel this time of year and our guests always seem to enjoy getting to know one another – happily chatting or playing board games together.   

Christmas Eve

Once settled into your bedroom, we invite you to join us in the lounge for a traditional Devon cream tea, taking in breathtaking and ever changing views of the sea whilst you relax and un-wind after your journey by a log fire. 

From 6.30pm mulled wine and canapés will be served in the lounge.  Dinner will then follow at 7.00pm and will be accompanied by traditionally festive music. 

Christmas Day

On Christmas morning breakfast will be served from 8.30am through to 10am when a sparkling glass of Bucks Fizz and a surprise gift awaits you at your table.

Perhaps you might like to attend the local church, St Sabinus, for their Christmas family communion service at 10.30am, or, to build up a hearty appetite for your Christmas lunch, you might prefer to take a bracing stroll along to Morte Point. On your return… mince pies and Sherry will be served in the hotel lounge at 11.30am. Christmas lunch will be served at 1.30pm in the restaurant, a time to eat plenty and settle into the Christmas spirit!

A Christmas tea of sandwiches and Christmas cake will be served at 6.30pm in the lounge.

Boxing Day

Breakfast will be served from 8.30am to 10.00am. After breakfast you will have time to explore the local area – the beaches and stunning coastline.  An informal buffet lunch will be served in the restaurant at 1.00pm. 

For guests wishing for a relaxed and easy afternoon a selection of classic Christmas movies will be shown on the big screen in the Arlington Suite from 2.00pm. 

At 6.30pm drinks and canapés are served in the lounge prior to our traditional Boxing Day gala dinner.

New Years Eve

Our guests normally aim to arrive during the late afternoon in time for a delicious Devon cream tea.  This is served in our lounge, which has warming open log fires and an uninterrupted panorama of the pristine sandy beach and rolling surf below.  

At 6.30pm everyone gathers together in the lounge for Champagne and canapés before moving through to the dining room at 7pm for a grand gala dinner.   After that there’s music and dancing until we all see the New Year in together with Auld Lang Syne and midnight fireworks. 

New Years Day

New Years Day always seems to be a restful day starting with a leisurely breakfast served from 8.30am until 10.00am. Our guests then tend to take a lovely winter walk along Woolacombe Bay beach or the picturesque coastal path – from where you can watch many sea birds.  Alternatively, guests tend to relax in our leisure suite, with pool, spa and sauna, or sit in the lounge reading a book or simply watching our wonderful, ever-changing, view. 

An informal lunch is served in the lounge at 1pm – after which we show a selection of classic movies in the Arlington Suite. 

A New Years Day dinner is served at 7.00pm, accompanied by our pianist playing tunes from the past and present.
