Experience Christmas at Bodrugan Barton

Thursday 5 October 2023

When it comes to Christmas, Bodrugan Barton offers a cosy countryside solution to cluttered houses, disposable gifts, chaotic planning and overwhelming gatherings. Why not escape to Mevagissey and spend this festive season in a self-catering cottage by the coast with your nearest and dearest?

Give the gift of memories

Instead of guessing gifts for your loved ones or even worse, receiving presents that just weren’t what you were after, why not replace traditional gift-giving antics with a break in Cornwall? Bodrugan Barton provides charming and thoughtfully renovated self-catering cottages with a host of fantastic amenities. Wander through fields to a secluded cove, relax in the indoor heated pool and sink beneath the covers of your soft bed in a property where cleanliness and comfort are at the forefront of your stay - we even provide you with a delicious Cornish cream tea on arrival! Staying somewhere as special as Bodrugan means you are within close distance of some of Cornwall’s finest offerings, from Heligan Gardens and the Eden Project, to the Roseland Peninsula and the cathedral city of Truro.

Not only is an experience far more memorable than a gift (even the ones on your list!), staying at Bodrugan also lets you spend time with your family free from excess waste, like wrapping paper, overcatering and the frivolous presents themselves. With pressure to get the perfect gift from overpriced brands and all the seasonal extras that add up, from turkey and tinsel to Christmas crackers and decorations, budgets can be tight at this time of year. With a group trip to the coast, you don’t have to spend money on pricey presents but instead, relax with your loved ones without the stress of the dreaded Christmas clutter clear-up. Get cosy under one roof, or if you are celebrating with a larger group stay in several of our cottages for a more sustainable season of giving, packed with quality time and memory-making.

Alternative yet traditional

Keep the tradition of family time, delicious food and festive relaxation alive while enjoying an alternative Christmas by the coast. Make this season your own at Bodrugan and source local ingredients from the great butcher’s counter at Lobbs Farm Shop for the whole family to help create a spectacular Christmas dinner. After stuffing yourself with delicious meats, locally grown vegetables, or whatever takes your fancy on Christmas day, relax in front of the blazing fire with a warming whisky and a board game to while away the afternoon in this idyllic seasonal setting. If you want to embark on a Christmas or Boxing Day walk, as is tradition for many families, venture outside of your comfortable cottage into the crisp countryside for a wintry wander. With easy access to the coast path, some of Cornwall’s most beautiful sights are right on your doorstep.

Why not head into the quaint village of Charlestown for a hot drink and a stroll around the historic harbour? Appearing in a range of film and TV like Poldark and Dr Who, the harbour is set on the rugged unspoilt coastline and is a proud UNESCO world heritage site. Alternatively, explore local makers, bakers and businesses by late-night shopping at Truro Christmas Market, or head to the high street to pick up some artisan treats for your loved ones if you are feeling extra generous; you will never be short of markets and fairs to explore around Cornwall! If you want to explore a little closer to home (from home), the Christmas lights at Mevagissy aren’t to be missed. The streets of this traditional fishing village are lined with twinkling Christmas scenes, illuminated in beautiful colours that reflect on the rippling harbour water and helping visitors build a sense of anticipatory excitement as Christmas Day approaches. 

Moments from the beach

You are never too far from a beach in Cornwall and Bodrugan Barton is no exception. Our cottages are only a short 20-minute amble from a secluded beach where if you are feeling brave enough, you can even go for a swim! Or why not partake in the traditional Christmas Day dip that happens across many beaches in the Duchy for a truly memorable morning? Afterwards, head back to your cosy cottage to warm up by the fire and indulge in a delicious lunch made with local produce before a chilled afternoon planning the rest of your festive stay by the sea.

A break at Bodrugan Barton is the perfect way to gift your family with memories guaranteed to last longer than a pair of socks. Enjoy making memories on the stunning Cornish coast in the crisp winter air without the excess cost of presents or Christmas chaos.
