There's something special about seeing in the New Year together away from home. And where could be more special than the wilds of the North Cornish coast? Start the year as you mean to go on with an adventure and create new family traditions. We count down the top five ways to see in the New Year in Cornish style.
With a little dip in the Atlantic
A special occasion in Cornwall wouldn't be complete without a small dose of vitamin sea. Whether it's enjoying the last bodyboarding session of the year together as a family or going for an invigorating morning surf on New Year’s Day (the ultimate Cornish hangover cure!), nothing beats the camaraderie of facing the elements together.
Cocktails with a (sea) view
It's official. Staying in is the new going out. Get the cocktail shaker out and enjoy one of the biggest party nights of the year amongst beautiful settings in a home beside the sea. You don't have to go out to dress up and dabbling in mixology for the evening is bound to be entertaining. Clink classes as the waves crash in below and as darkness falls, head inside and gather around the fire to share tales of the year gone by.
With the locals at a Cornish country pub
Cornwall is known for its fabulous country pubs and what better way to spend New Year's Eve than partying like a local? Bask in the warmth of the roaring log fire as you sample the best Cornish produce and work your way through the locally made tipples. Soak up the atmosphere and enjoy a New Year's Eve to remember in the heart of the Cornish countryside. Our personal favourites are The Mariners in Rock, the St Tudy Inn, the St Kew Inn and The Golden Lion in Port Isaac.
Fireworks in Wadebridge on the bridge
The nearest market town of Wadebridge provides a fantastic atmosphere on New Year's Eve. Enjoy a meal together at Bridge Bistro, The Stepping Stone or the Bear Bar & Kitchen followed by a pub crawl to include The Molesworth Arms. As midnight arrives, everyone spills out of the bars and restaurants to enjoy the firework display from the pretty bridge that straddles the Camel Estuary.
