New Year Breaks in Cornwall From cosy country cottages with log fires and low wooden beams, some with four poster beds, to homely guesthouses overlooking the lights around the harbour, to 4 star hotels with a candlelit Dinner Cornwall has lots of nice places to stay.
Why not walk off that hangover with a walk along the coast, watching the waves crashing from a safe distance, stopping off for a warming lunch in a pub or inn, with log fire blazing? Or explore one of the many Cornish fishing villages? Many places have special New Year Offers at this time of year, but expect demand for accommodation to be high so book early.
New Years Eve
Xmas and The New Year in St Ives St Ives comes alive from its out of season slumber. Nearly all the shops and galleries have Christmas Decorations with of course a Xmas tree complete with multi-coloured lights above their windows. It is nice just to stroll along the cobbled streets and passages, and walk around the harbour at this time of year. Or watch a few hardy surfers riding any waves there may be breaking on Porthmeor Beach. New Years Eve is very special- St Ives becomes one big party. Restaurants , Hotels, Camping Cottages , Bed and Breakfast have all been fully booked for months, with tens of thousands of good natured revellers keen to see the New Year in Cornwall in style. Nearly everyone will be wearing fancy dress, those that do not feel decidedly out of place. Crowds of people come to St Ives in West Cornwall to see in the New Year. The roads around the harbour closed to traffic at dusk on and the celebrations begin in earnest. Packed inns, and restaurants. A Fireworks Display at Midnight, buskers and dancing on the Streets. St Ives Accommodation is often booked from one year to the next, with last minute visitors often having to stay some miles from the town centre.
Newquay New Years Eve
Newquay New Years Eve and Xmas too The resort rivals St Ives and Looe as the place in Cornwall to spend Xmas and see in the New Year. Revellers in fancy dress from all over Britain, not only locals, pack the pubs, clubs, hotels and harbourside, determined to see out the Old Year in style . From men in dinner jackets, or prison stripes, to women dressed as Cleopatra to children in Star Wars costumes, or whatever the latest blockbuster film maybe. Note- venues are ticket only and sold out months in advance. Regulars will ensure their costumes are warm, there is nothing worse than feeling the cold on such a special night. A most friendly, relaxed and carefree time is had by all.
Mousehole Christmas Lights (a fishing village in the far West of Cornwall) are justifiably famous, and no visit would be complete without seeing them. Not just the cottages, but the harbour walls are decorated. Everything from Father Xmas to a star gazy pie in brightly coloured lights.
