stay with us this christmas

Christmas Eve

Arrive at your leisure – you are welcome to check-in early (12:00) to get settled, perhaps finding a few moments to wrap those last minute gifts or heading straight out to the sands to blow away the cobwebs. If you’ve still got some shopping to do, Holt has some really lovely independent shops selling the kind of gifts you are unlikely to find on the High Street. Either way, we’ll have a treat for you when you’re ready – warm mince pies and a mulled cider served by the fire.

In the evening, a three-course dinner awaits. We’ll have your candlelit table ready whatever time suits you, and you can choose your favourites from our popular seasonal menu.

Christmas Day

A hearty Norfolk breakfast will be served, accompanied by a lovely glass of Buck’s Fizz. For lunch, there’s a four-course festive feast. Plump for our early sitting (12pm or 12:30pm), or relax and dine a little later in the afternoon (3pm or 3:30pm); this is your home by the beach and we will work around your Christmas traditions. In the evening, a light festive buffet will be served from 7pm. The fire will be lit in the bar and there are plenty of board games, should you fancy a bit or a tournament.

Boxing Day

We’ll be serving breakfast until 10:30 on Boxing Day and there’s no need to rush –  If you decide to take the plunge in the North Sea waters on Mundesley Beach, we’ll reward you handsomely with a hot toddy on your return, or you can watch from the warmth of the Inn!

27th December 

Our Christmas guests can enjoy a late check-out (12pm), take time to bid a fond farewell to the charming village of Mundesley! We hope to welcome you back to our coastal restaurant with rooms sometime very soon!
