Christmas & New Year Packages 2020

Christmas and New Year Packages

Christmas in Lynmouth is a magical time – make this year’s festive celebrations extra special and enjoy a break here at The Lyn Valley Guest House. We’ll be staying open this year until New Year’s Day, and for the first time (ever!), we have Christmas and New Year Packages available.

We have to admit that December is our favourite month of the year, and so we’re looking forward to thoroughly spoiling our guests with all the little extras. Think mulled wine, mince pies, buck’s fizz, a Christmas tree in every room, and of course, our delicious food! The Christmas and New Year Packages include all your meals, so you can simply sit back and let us take care of everything.

Here’s what you have to look forward to –

Christmas Package 2020 

Christmas Eve (Thursday 24th December 2020)

On arrival, enjoy a warm welcome with mulled wine and a festive afternoon tea. Spend the afternoon relaxing before the big day – perhaps some last minute Christmas shopping in Lynmouth, or take in the fresh country air with a walk along the sea-front or along the path to Watersmeet. In the evening, join our other guests for a three-course dinner with tea or coffee to finish. For those attending midnight mass* (to be confirmed if any of the local churches will be holding a midnight mass service this year) – mince pies and hot chocolate will be prepared for your return.

Christmas Day (Friday 25th December 2020)

Enjoy a leisurely morning – with no cooking to do, all you need to worry about is opening your presents! We push breakfast back a little so it finishes at 10am to allow you time to relax – come down to breakfast when you’re ready to enjoy a continental buffet with Buck’s Fizz.
Our Traditional Christmas Lunch is then served at 1pm – enjoy the four course meal with all the festive trimmings. After lunch, stretch the legs with a leisurely Lynmouth stroll, enjoy a board game or two, or watch the Queen’s Speech with a cup of tea and slice of Christmas cake.
Later in the evening, there will be a cold buffet supper, including a sumptuous cheese selection for you to indulge in.

Boxing Day (Saturday 26th December 2020)

Make Boxing Day your own – join us for breakfast in the morning, and then spend the day as you like. Perhaps you’ll explore Exmoor with a drive across the moors, watch the Annual Tug-of-War match outside The Ancient Mariner, or head up to Lynton and walk through the stunning Valley of the Rocks. A light bites menu will be available at lunch-time – or if you’re out exploring, we’ll do a packed lunch up to take with you. In the evening, enjoy a three course dinner with tea or coffee to finish.

Sunday 27th December 2020

Enjoy a full English breakfast, before fond farewells. Or, stay a little longer and add a night or two on to your package.

New Year’s Eve Package 2020

Arrive on the last day of 2020 and enjoy a warm welcome with mulled wine and afternoon tea. Relax and take in the fresh air of Lynmouth in the afternoon, while we prepare your delicious dinner. Come join the other guests for a glass of prosecco and canapés before enjoying a sumptous four-course dinner, with tea or coffee to finish. Head down to the harbour to watch the fireworks at midnight – we’ll send you off with everything you need to see in the New Year including a small bottle of bubbly and sparklers!

New Year’s Day (Friday 1st January 2021)

Happy New Year! Enjoy a relaxing start to the day, with breakfast pushed back to allow for a sleep-in after the festivities of the evening before. Buck’s Fizz is served with breakfast to properly bring in the New Year. Check-out at your leisure, or stay on for the weekend and relax a little more!
