Make your Christmas magical at Bosinver

Christmas is an ideal time for getting away with family and friends. And what better way to make the most of the season than by celebrating in Cornwall? Escape the hustle and bustle, head for Cornwall and r-e-l-a-x. Wrap up warm and enjoy fresh, invigorating air, long walks on the beach, crashing waves and breathtaking views.

From spectacular Christmas lights to winter festivals and a huge range of family friendly events, there are plenty of opportunities for seasonal celebrations – so why not indulge yourselves and enjoy the festive season in Cornwall this year?

Each year, we decorate all our cottages ready for the festive season, leaving you free to focus on making the most of your time together. Fairy lights twinkle invitingly as you walk into your cottage. A beautifully decorated Christmas tree sits in the corner of the room.

All that’s left for you to do is put your presents under the tree, hang up your stockings, and perhaps add a few of your favourite decorations.

This year we are even giving all our week long guests a special Christmas Dinner Food Box from the lovely people at the Cornish Food Box, full of delicious treats including: Penny’s Handmade Cornish Blue and Plum Christmas Pie, Christmas veg (parsnips, potatoes, carrots, onions, red cabbage and sprouts), cranberry & apricot fruity stuffing mix, a luxury Xmas pudding and Cornish clotted cream.  

Bring your favourite festive films and family board games (or borrow ours!) and enjoy spending time together: it’s Christmas like it used to be. As darkness falls, snuggle up by a cosy woodburner – and once the kids are in bed there’s time to sit back, sip some mulled wine and unwind, or perhaps even slip in to a steamy hot tub…

In 2018 our standard week-long Christmas stays are from Saturday 22nd to Saturday 29th December – as an extra-special Christmas offer you can enjoy a stay of 10 nights for the price of 7, starting your stay on Wednesday 19th through to Saturday 29th December 2018. 

To book the additional 3 nights special offer or discuss a festive break at Bosinver please call us on 01726 72128.

Our larger cottages have already booked, but if you would like to share your festive break with family or friends why not get together with more than one cottage? Our cottages are laid out around our beautiful grounds like a small village, with all our facilities and activities within just a short walk – check out the cottage locations from our site map .

Rose cottage sleeping 4 is now at £1090 for the 7 nights or Buddleia also sleeping 4 now at £1190.  We also have Pentree cottage sleeping 5 (now at £1190), but as this is booked until 22nd Dec (and cannot therefore have the 10 nights for the price of 7 offer) it comes with a complimentary family ticket for 2 adults and three children to the Lost Gardens of Heligan – magical at any time of year but especially at Christmas!

What’s included in your week-long festive stay

  • Your own luxury self-catering cottage, decorated ready for Christmas to feel just like home
  • a special Christmas Dinner Food Box from the Cornish Food Box Company
  • A pony ride for the children
  • Daily animal feeding (yes, even on Christmas Day!)
  • A Wild Kids Forest School session
  • Unlimited access to our gorgeously warm indoor pool (during pool opening hours)
  • All the usual Bosinver extras, including free WiFi, a toy box in the cottage to keep the children entertained and a range of DVDs, games and puzzles to borrow
  • Frozen meals available to buy from reception (or pre-order) if you don’t feel like cooking.

In 2019 our standard week-long Christmas stays are from Monday 23rd to Monday 30th December but with our 10 nights for the price of 7 you can enjoy a stay from Friday 20th to Monday 30th December 2019.

Celebrate the festive season at Bosinver

Luxury is a word that’s often used, but at Bosinver it’s one that we really take to heart. We want every part of your stay to be indulgent; for you to relax and enjoy every second of your stay with us. However large or small your group, we have a range of individually designed, superbly equipped cottages to suit you.

Our larger cottages are perfect for extended family groups. All have lovely large open plan living space, so there’s plenty of room to get everyone together. As you can see from our site map, all our cottages are just a hop, skip and a jump away from one another, so if you’re an extra-large group (or you simply prefer having your own space), you can easily book two or more cottages.

And, of course, when you go away over Christmas or New Year it means you don’t have to worry about squeezing in to someone’s house or having to drive home at the end of the day.

New Year breaks at Bosinver

New Year breaks of a minimum of 4 nights start from Saturday 29th December in 2018 and from Monday 30th December 2019.

Things to see and do in Cornwall over Christmas and New Year

There’s lots happening in Cornwall over the festive season – take a look at our blog and the Cornwall 365 website listings for a little inspiration.

Each of our cottages has its own handy guide packed full of suggestions to help you plan your best ever holiday. As usual, our friendly and helpful team will be on hand to provide personal recommendations for great places to visit. From nearby child friendly attractions to dog friendly beaches and the best local pubs (our nearest the award winning Polgooth Inn is just a 10 minute stroll away – ideal for a festive tipple or celebratory dinner!), we love to help you make the most of your stay.

And while we can’t guarantee a white Christmas, a festive break at Bosinver is likely to be a magical one you’ll remember for years to come…

“We’ve just returned from spending a brilliant Christmas week at Lowen. The quality of this accommodation is superb, the house definitely has the wow factor. Despite being a modern building, it is still homely and warm (especially with the wood burner lit). The hot tub was great – being able to sit in it, enjoying a glass of bubbly on an evening whilst looking up at the stars was fantastic (even if it was the middle of winter)!

David E. Stayed in Lowen eco-cottage

We stayed in Hydrangea Cottage at Bosinver for 2 weeks over Christmas and had the best time. When we arrived after a long day travelling, the cottage was toasty warm…and well equipped, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Everything at Bosinver is of good quality and there are nice touches such as dvds, books and games available to borrow… Staying at Bosinver made Christmas very special for us, especially as we could bring our dog (who also rates the stay 5 stars!).”
