Welcome in New Year’s Day the Cornish Way

With everything happening on New Year’s Eve, we often forget about the day after and write it off as a recovery day. But why waste a perfectly glorious day when you could be exploring what’s right on your doorstep?

With our unique position on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, it would be a shame not to embrace the water come the first light of 2019. Here’s our guide to make the most of your New Year’s Day in and around Falmouth…

New Year’s Day Swim

A New Year’s Day swim may be a slightly strange tradition for folk outside of Cornwall, but all of us Cornish lot love a good swim in the sea – especially when wetsuits are not allowed! A refreshing dip in the icy cold waters on a bright January morning is exactly what the doctor ordered. Grab the New Year by the horns and seize the opportunities 2019 offers you.

Take up paddle boarding

If your New Year’s resolution is to try a new hobby, why not give paddle boarding a go? The fellas over at Gylly Adventures, Falmouth’s number one adventure activities provider, offer oodles of activities launching straight from The Greenbank’s private pontoons or Gyllyngvase Beach. Picture a calm winter’s morning on the water, followed by a hot chocolate to get yourself warm again. Bliss!

Dog Walks Galore

With our dog-friendly rooms available all year round, there’s no excuse not to bring the entire family for a break during the New Year celebrations. And with all of our beaches in Cornwall allowing dogs on in the winter months, your pooch pals can have a good run around on one of our many beaches. Blow away the 2018 cobwebs and breathe in the fresh air of a New Year in Cornwall.
