Come for Christmas

Christmas comes but once a year, so do it right.

There are times, and there are places, when it’s important to do things properly, The Seaside Boarding House Christmas Holiday is one of those moments, a three night stay, a lifetime of memories.

24th December

Arrive in time for afternoon tea, evening cocktails and a three course Christmas Eve dinner. Then optional local Midnight Mass and back for mince pies, or stay at the bar to welcome back the righteous.

25th December

Breakfast, Christmas stockings (yes, after breakfast!), The Christmas Day Feast, traditional, classic, seaside and vegetarian options. Tea & Christmas cake and a light buffet supper before bed.

26th December

Breakfast, cream tea and a la carte dinner.

27th December

Breakfast and then a tearful departure.

Completely optional activities include lie-ins, brisk seaside walks, visits to local landmarks & sites, reading in an armchair by the fire, T.V. and afternoon naps, a comprehensive, but not pretentious, wine list to play with, a highly skilled and motivated bar staff looking to prepare cocktails and fine beverages on demand, when demanded.

All in all, perfect.

Christmas Day at The SBH

Oh come all you hungry and join the Christmas Day Feast. The Christmas day you dreamed about as the Turkey burnt and the relations argued.

A beautiful, proper, but informal lunch at The Seaside Boarding House includes traditional, classic, seaside and vegetarian options. Accompanied by a deep enough wine list to satisfy the odd glasser to the viticulturist, plus eager bar staff primed to make seasonal and classical cocktails.
