See in the New Year in the comfort of your own luxury holiday cottage. Surround yourself with 400 acres of stunning Cornish countryside, and celebrate with family, friends and fizz. Take a traditional New Year’s Day dip in the sea, or swap the swimwear for pyjamas and wrap up warm in front of the crackling fire.
With the hustle and bustle of Christmas out of the way, we want you to see in 2024 feeling relaxed and replenished, ready to kickstart the New Year as you mean to go on. You can arrive on either Wednesday 27th, Friday 29th or Saturday 30th December – simply select the date and length of stay that suits you best.
Need to get back to the office? Perhaps you’d like to stay a little longer to truly unwind? We want to be as flexible as possible when it comes to your well-earned break, so if you can only stay for three nights, that’s no problem. Fancy staying for a full week into the New Year? We’re more than happy to have you!
Gather your group of friends or family around the log burner on an evening for a cosy movie night or game of cards – complete with snacks and blankets. By day, you can opt for an afternoon of relaxation at our state-of-the-art spa, chill in the jacuzzi, or get some lengths under your belt in one of our fantastic heated swimming pools.
It wouldn’t be a New Year’s Day celebration without a traditional roast dinner – and at Whalesborough it’s no different. We’ll include an extra special New Year’s hamper for you, packed with fresh local meat, homegrown vegetables and a bottle of fizz – it will have everything you need to celebrate the first day of the year without the stress of dashing to the shops.
Whalesborough is the perfect place for families to call home this New Year. We’re a stone’s throw from the coast, set in the gorgeous Cornish countryside with great travel links no matter where you’re travelling from. Not only will you be in your own luxury cottage, there’s also the onsite spa, the Weir Restaurant, and plenty of areas to play and explore. Fancy venturing out for the day? You’re also within day-trip distance to the rest of Cornwall.
Feeling adventurous? There is a traditional New Year’s Day sea swim held each year at nearby Crooklet’s Beach in Bude – if you’re brave enough to take the plunge! If that’s not for you, take a dip in our heated Hydrotherapy pool, or soak up the warmth of the Sauna at our onsite Spa, The W Club.
We can’t emphasise how stunning the surrounding countryside at Whalesborough is; it’s the perfect place to get some fresh air and blow away the cobwebs over the New Year period. The walk down the canal to Bude is around three miles, but well worth exploring. If you’re headed in the other direction, then the Whalesborough trail will take you to Widemouth Bay. Both are flat, so great for any age or fitness level.
If you’re bringing the dog with you, they’re going to have as good a time as you do! All our cottages are dog-friendly and come with a doggy welcome pack to make them feel right at home for the New Year. The beaches at this time are all dog-friendly (but do check) and there’s an onsite shower to clean off those sandy paws. If you don’t head to the beach, there are plenty of walks to take and your canine companion is also very welcome in our onsite restaurant.
