Welcoming in the New Year the Cornish way

With New Year’s Day just around the corner (hasn’t this year just flown by!) we’re looking forward to taking part in one or two traditions. Our unique coastal position means that embracing the chilly Atlantic early in the morning is one of our favourites, but there are others which will help you to make the most of the first day of 2020 in Cornwall.

Embrace the chilly water and go for a swim

What better way to clear your head and kick start the new year than the New Year’s Day open swim on Crantock Beach! Whilst running into the (probably) chilly water might seem a bit odd to those from outside Cornwall, there really is nothing better, or refreshing, on a January morning.

Indulge in a hearty breakfast

With the sea swim taking place just below us, treat yourself to one of our delicious all-day breakfasts in C-Bay afterwards. Warm up, kick back, relax and enjoy the view – whilst feeling very smug that you’ve already been in the sea on the 1st January.

Run the dog on the beach

We’re very lucky that all of the beaches in Cornwall are dog friendly during the winter. Staying with the coastal theme, wear out your four-legged friend (and the rest of the family too!) with a good run around on the beach. If you’re feeling particularly energetic, you may have already been for a swim…

Hire a bike and ride the Camel Trail

Enjoy a gentle ride along this traffic free route to blow a few cobwebs away. Ideal for those who would like to be near the coast, with views of the sea, without getting in. The trail is flat, so it’s great for children too.

Lastly, did you know…

In Cornwall, the moment between 11.59pm on New Year’s Eve and midnight on New Year’s Day is known as ‘St Tibb’s Eve’? It’s supposed to be a hidden day of magical celebration.

‘First Footing’ is a tradition found across the world. It’s believed that good luck is brought into the house by the first person to enter in the New Year. In Cornwall, our version of first footing is called ‘sanding the step’. The doorstep is marked with a line of sand and the first person to cross is said to represent the luck the household will receive that year.

Will you be adding this Cornish tradition to your celebrations?

What to see and do around Cornwall this Christmas

Cornwall is a great place to visit during the festive season. Packed full of things to do and see, from twinkling light displays to Christmas markets, there’s sure to be something for everyone to enjoy. Here are some of our favourites that we think you’ll love.

Festive light displays

Our favourite light display is of course the one you’ll find in Crantock village – just moments away from us. However, if you’re looking to make an evening of it, there are some fantastic ones a little further away.

Mousehole’s famous display, which lights up the streets, harbour walls and even the water is truly magical. The switch on takes place at 6.30pm on Saturday 14th December and the lights will be on every evening (except Thursday 19th) until the 5th January. We recommend also visiting Angarrack’s stunning display – which you’ll find on the way to (or back from) Mousehole. There you’ll find the twelve days of Christmas and even some sneaky crocodiles!

There are many other towns and villages which put a huge amount of effort into their Christmas lights. Just a few of the ones we’d suggest visiting include Carnon Downs, Truro, Falmouth and Leedstown.

Christmas markets

You won’t be short of choice when it comes to Christmas shopping in Cornwall.

Head to one of the many events taking place, including the Padstow Christmas Festival, Healeys Christmas Market, Country House Christmas at Trevince, Truro Christmas Market and many more. Bursting with amazing food, drink, gifts and more, there’s no better way to get into the festive spirit.

Festival of Christmas

Head to the Eden Project this Christmas and be entertained by a joyful chorus of some of Cornwall’s finest musicians. A cast of 21 will be playing festive songs in the Mediterranean Biome on the evenings that they’re open late. On your way there, walk through the spectacular Avenue of Lights to the Biomes, where giant willow lanterns, modelled on our planet’s most precious creatures, light up the night. Then take a spin on the ice rink or enjoy a glass of mulled wine.

Santa by steam

All aboard! Take a trip with the railway elves to visit Santa’s grotto. Arrive at Bodmin General Station for mince pies, festive drinks and carols on the platform, before enjoying an hour-long return journey on a steam train. There’s plenty of time to visit Santa, with gifts for each child.

Watch a Christmas panto

 You won’t want to miss Aladdin at the Lane Theatre in Newquay! The story may be familiar but expect a modern twist. Running between 12th – 14th December, early booking is advised to avoid disappointment.

Bar Lounge 1210x423 - Our favourite cocktails to enjoy at C-Bay Café/Bar/Bistro

Our favourite cocktails to enjoy at C-Bay Café/Bar/Bistro

In our (very biased) opinion, there’s no better place to sip on a favourite cocktail than our very own sun terrace, or from a comfy chair within our bar area. With an unsurpassed view across Crantock Beach and the coastline beyond, it’s also a great spot to watch the world go by.

We recently extended our café/bar/bistro to include a new bar area and a more relaxed seating area. Perfect for enjoying coffee and cake, but also a great place to try the range of cocktails, mocktails and gins (amongst others) on the menu later in the day.

When asked to name the most popular cocktail on the menu it wasn’t possible – because there are two. The classic Mojito, a combination of white rum, lime juice, gomme syrup, soda water and mint, and the Porn Star Martini – a blend of vanilla vodka, passion fruit, passion fruit vodka and served with a shot of prosecco.

For guests who prefer an alcohol-free option, Seedlip, the world’s first non-alcoholic spirit, solves the dilemma of ‘what to drink when you’re not drinking.’ With two varieties to choose from, Seedlip Spice and Seedlip Garden, we think they make a great tasting drink.

If you’re unable to join us at Crantock Bay to enjoy a cocktail or two, why not recreate our favourite cocktails at home:

Classic MojitoIMG 3007 002 169x300 - Our favourite cocktails to enjoy at C-Bay Café/Bar/Bistro

Muddle the lime juice, gomme syrup (or sugar) and mint leaves, crushing the mint as you go. A rolling pin works well for this. Pour into a tall glass and add a handful of ice.

Pour over the rum, stirring with a long-handled spoon. Top up with soda water, garnish with mint and serve.

Porn Star Martini 

Start by chilling a martini glass with lots of ice. Add 25ml of vanilla vodka, 25ml of passionfruit vodka, 10ml of vanilla gomme syrup and 25ml of passion fruit to a cocktail shaker glass filled with ice. Shake and strain the contents into the glass. Cut the end of a passion fruit and place into the glass so it floats.

Finally serve a shot glass of prosecco alongside the martini. Enjoy!
