Rumours say that Father Christmas and Mrs Christmas have crash landed at Bedruthan this year while doing a test flight, after the near miss last year. The Cornish elves are working very hard to get the sleigh up and running for Christmas Eve. But right now we need your help because upon landing all of the children’s gifts have fallen into the snow-covered trees of the Bedruthan Sugar and Spice Grotto! It’s quite a journey to get there, so you’ll need lots of energy and magic…
“Ah, so gorgeous, it’s possibly the nicest grotto in North Cornwall” said a friend when I told her we’d been invited to the Sugar & Spice Grotto at Bedruthan Hotel. And she was right. Even I, a cynical tired 36-year-old mother of two, felt a sense of magic and wonder as we wound our way through snow tunnels deep into the magical forest to find where Mr and Mrs Claus had crashed their sleigh.
Totally possible to do after school too, we went at 5pm then ate together in the Wild Cafe straight after, and were home in time for bed. We managed to get the children to the door of the grotto without them suspecting anything either, after telling them that we simply off to their favourite hotel for supper. Their faces when they were greeted by magic stamps and Astrid welcoming them into Tomte’s forest was a delight.
Open every day in December. £15 for one child and adult, £5 per additional adult
Journey takes approx 60 minutes.
*We were invited by Bedruthan to experience the grotto which included 2 tickets. We paid for our own transport and meal at the Wild Cafe.
