Christmas is a magical time of year to visit Cornwall. Much quieter than the busy summer season, Cornwall at this time of year is brimming with festive cheer. You can expect empty beaches, windswept vistas and seasonal celebrations and events. You can also expect a warm welcome from the cosy Christmas cottages and festive holiday homes available for rent on the North Cornish coast.
There are lots of Christmas fairs, markets, carol concerts and Santa themed events to experience and enjoy in Cornwall. Towns and villages across the county put up Christmas trees, lights and decorations - perhaps the biggest and best known display can be seen in the little fishing village of Mousehole in West Cornwall.
Locally to our area of North Cornwall in Perranporth, St Agnes and the surrounding villages, there is a wide choice of festive happennings to get you in the mood for Christmas on the coast. If you’re arriving early, there is a fabulous Christmas market in Perranporth on Sunday 17th December. In the run up to Christmas there are numerous local carol concerts, including the annual Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols which traditionally takes place on the two days before Christmas at Truro Cathedral. Then there’s the Boxing Day dip in the sea at Perranporth Beach, which is guaranteed to blow away any after effects from your Christmas celebrations.
