What does Christmas have in store for you this year? A bracing swim in the sea, stunning coastal walks (or beach rides) to help work off the extra turkey and pud? Or yet another “typical” Christmas – disgruntled relatives, too much food, and falling asleep in front of the telly? Perhaps getting away to a cottage by the sea could be the answer!
There’re lots of things for all the family at Broomhill Manor, including the heated swimming pool and spa, games rooms and horse riding! There are also lots of things going on in and around Bude for you to combine a festive break in a luxury cottage with some great family days out.
One “mustn’t miss” event for visitors to Bude is the traditional Christmas Day Swim from Crooklets beach which takes place at 11 am prompt and which everyone should experience at least once – even if you just go to watch!
