Magical Christmas Breaks

Escape to the heart of Cornwall and celebrate the most wonderful time of the year at The Alverton.

Christmas breaks in Cornwall

For Christmas breaks in Cornwall, look no further. Check into our historic hotel dressed with dazzling Christmas trees, twinkling lights and bows of holly. Prepare to create magical memories full of Cornish traditions, award-winning food, toasty tipples by the roaring fire and heaps of festive fun. We’ll be roasting the turkey, shaking the cocktails and spreading the seasonal cheer. Settle in and enjoy a truly Cornish Christmas that you’ll look back on fondly for years to come.

We’re perched on the outskirts of Truro, the perfect destination to wander the charming cobbled streets and soak up all the city has to offer. From the stunning cathedral, carol singers, late night shopping and street food to artisan coffee spots and unique independent shops. We recommend visiting local light displays, embracing the waters with an annual Christmas Day swim and heading to a Cornish bakery to try a special festive version of our local delicacies.

When you’re done with exploring, make your way back to The Alverton. We’ll be serving winter cocktails, yuletide-inspired cuisine and seasonal entertainment for the whole family. We look forward to welcoming you for a Christmas that’s merry and bright!

23rd December

Enter through the grand doors of our historical hotel and be welcomed with a festive greeting by our friendly team and a chilled glass of fizz. After checking in and dropping off your luggage, head over to The Library to enjoy a warm mince pie, a mini Cornish cream tea, and a steaming glass of mulled wine, while listening to the sweet sounds of pianist Roger Miners. As the evening approaches, dust off your finest for a lavish and extravagant five course black tie gala dinner in The Great Hall, setting the tone for the rest of your festive stay.

Christmas Eve

Start your day with a hearty breakfast while taking in the beautiful scenery of our winter gardens. Afterwards, why not take a leisurely stroll into Truro and finish up any last-minute Christmas shopping? Or enjoy a morning of festive arts and crafts, where you’ll learn to make unique homemade decorations. Upon your return, join us for a delightful cocktail making experience that is sure to leave you feeling merry. Later in the evening, indulge in a delicious four-course dinner in our restaurant and perhaps a warming tipple or two in our cosy bar. If you’re attending Midnight Mass in Truro, we will be ready to greet you with a warm mug of hot chocolate upon your return.

Christmas Day

The big day has arrived, but rest assured that our experienced team will be pulling out all the stops to make it a magical and memorable one for you. Start the day off with a delicious Buck’s fizz breakfast and some special surprises for adults and children alike. For those who are feeling brave, we are only a short drive away from the beach where you can brave a traditional Christmas Day swim. If staying warm and cosy is more your style though, then enjoy a lazy morning unwrapping presents, and cuddling up next to the fire.

At lunchtime sit down to enjoy a delicious feast brimming with all of your festive favourites, with an Alverton twist. If you’re still feeling peckish, don’t fret because in the evening you can indulge in our buffet feast of Cornish delicacies. End the big day by sinking into a comfy armchair by the roaring fire with a delightful Christmas tipple in hand.

Boxing Day

After a restful night’s sleep, tuck into a delicious hearty breakfast, then spend the morning at your leisure. Relax with a book by the fire, before taking part in our pasty making workshop, where you’ll learn how to make this classic Cornish treat at home. After whetting your appetite, tuck into a warming Cornish lunch before the afternoons activities begin. We’ll be joined by some feathery friends, Screech Owl Sanctuary, who’ll putting on a thrilling show on our terrace. In the evening, get ready for some fun and games as we have a selection of board games ready for your entertainment.
