A Rick Stein Christmas break

You’re invited to celebrate Christmas the Rick Stein way, by the coast in Padstow.

Imagine walks around Padstow harbour illuminated by Christmas lights, the sound of carol singing coming from pubs, board games and drinks in our lounges and of course, plenty of food, drink and festive cheer. This break is for those that would love to spend a Christmas break in Cornwall – who think great food and drink should be at the heart of any Christmas celebration and rather like the idea of letting someone else tend to planning, of what can be a stressful few days.

Three night Christmas breaks in Cornwall from £1,650 per room

The itinerary for our Christmas break in Cornwall

Christmas Eve – Join us from 3pm, or arrive early to make the most of Christmas Eve in Padstow. Enjoy a hot drink, mince pies and festive treats from the Christmas pantry at St Petroc’s.

Christmas Eve Dinner – Start with a Champagne cocktail and choose from the a la carte menu at The Seafood Restaurant, enjoying classics like grilled lobster, whole Dover sole or turbot hollandaise to get you ready for the big day. The atmosphere will be magical.
Our team will be on hand to assist anyone who would like to visit a local church for midnight mass.

Christmas Morning – Start your Christmas Day with Bucks Fizz and breakfast at The Seafood Restaurant – look forward to favourites like eggs Benedict, kedgeree or a full English. Then grab a hot drink to take on a wander around town or up to the war memorial to take in the fresh air and Christmas morning views along the estuary.

Christmas Lunch – “Rick’s perfect Christmas meal” at The Seafood Restaurant. The 5-course menu will include options such as smoked salmon to start, roast goose for the main course and Rick’s very own Christmas pudding.

Christmas Evening- A relaxed Christmas supper of hot and cold dishes will be served by the warm glow of an open fire from 7pm at St Petroc’s Bistro. End your Christmas Day in the lounge with a board game, a nightcap and one last festive bite to eat. What better way to top off a fab day of foodie festive celebrations in Padstow.

Boxing Day – Breakfast will be served at The Seafood Restaurant followed by a day of leisure – blow away the cobwebs on a coastal walk along the Camel Trail or around the headland, play a round of golf or relax with a good book and a glass of something.

Boxing Day Afternoon Tea – Afternoon tea will be served to see you through to supper. This quintessentially British tradition has a festive twist to keep you topped up with Christmas spirit.

Boxing Night Dinner An a la carte dinner at The Seafood Restaurant. A chance to order some of the dishes you didn’t get a chance to try on Christmas Eve, or to enjoy tried and tested favourites again on your final night.

27th December The final breakfast at The Seafood Restaurant or St Petroc’s Bistro before your departure. Or choose to spend a few extra days with us in Padstow for a supplement.

For the duration of your stay our lounges and festive pantry will be open at St Petroc’s. Our festive pantry will be stocked with hot drinks, mince pies, festive treats, fruit and snacks. All available to enjoy in a comfortable chair or to takeaway and fuel your stroll around Padstow.
