A gift from us: Stein's Festive Celebration Menu


We know how important food and drink is to the festive season. The tastes and aromas which are so unique to this time of year are central to some of our happiest holiday memories. This is why we are bringing the flavours of Cornwall to your doorstep, by gifting a Stein's 'Festive Celebration Menu' box worth £120, when you book to stay with us this Christmas (booking must be made before December 7).

There’s nowhere better to spend Christmas than on the coast. See harbours lit with twinkling lights, watch stormy seas from a bubbling hot tub, and ramble along empty clifftops. Cornwall captures the natural beauty of the festive season, providing a chance for deep, restorative joy. But what really sets a Cornish Christmas apart is its coastal spin on traditional festive cuisine. Think fresh, sizzling seafood, foraged herbs and locally picked winter root veggies, washed down with your pick of mulled wine, locally brewed ale or gin from nearby distilleries.
