We’re officially launching our festive packages this week, which include the opportunity to bring your dog to stay, as well as star gazing and enjoying an à la carte Christmas meal.
Come and join us here at Dunkery Beacon Country House in the Heart of Exmoor for a traditional Christmas celebration. Relax and unwind while we make your Christmas a very special occasion starting with your arrival here on Christmas Eve with a warm fireside welcome and a glass of hot mulled wine and a slice of homemade cake.
In the evening, join us for dinner, then afterwards relax in the lounge by the log burner. One thing guests could do on Christmas Eve is look to the heavens and see if there’s a star to follow! Exmoor’s International Dark Sky Designation means that in favourable conditions, we’re perfectly placed for viewing the stars with the naked eye. Exmoor is one of the best places in the country for stargazing as it has very little light pollution and is often free from clouds.
On Christmas Day, you can wake up to stunning views across the moor and breakfast a little later than normal, from 8.30am until 9.30am, in our award-winning Coleridge Restaurant.
The morning is then your own to explore the local area and possibly take in a bracing walk or mountain bike ride to the top of Dunkery Beacon, which can be reached by foot from our doorstep, or head off for a leisurely drive across the moor or down to the nearby sea for a walk on the beach. Dunkery Beacon is the highest point on Exmoor at 520 metres and it commands a breath-taking 360-degree panoramic view. For keen bikers and walkers, we have a dedicated drying room for clothing and equipment.
After a morning of fun and relaxation, a traditional three-course Christmas lunch will be served from 1.30pm. Later in the afternoon, relax once again by the fireside and try our Christmas quiz, or take another walk or drive and explore the stunning scenery that Exmoor has to offer.
An optional light buffet supper is available in the evening on request at an additional cost of £16 per head.
On Boxing Day breakfast will be served at the normal time of 8am – 9am, leaving you free to explore more of the area or to stay cosy in our guest lounge with a good book and a seasonal liqueur perhaps.
In the evening, join us once again for a delicious three-course dinner in the restaurant. On Thursday, December 27, enjoy another hearty breakfast before bidding farewell and reflecting on what we hope was a memorable Christmas here.
Dunkery Beacon Country House Hotel is offering its über-relaxing, three-night, festive stay from Christmas Eve on Monday, December 24 until breakfast on December 27 with prices from £348 per person.
Dogs are allowed in some of the bedrooms at an additional cost of £5 per dog per night.
