What Christmas looks like at the Bedford Hotel Sidmouth

On arrival, enjoy a cup of tea or gingerbread coffee, served with festive stollen, before settling into your comfortable room. Later our festivities begin in the bar with a choice of carefully selected wines and popcorn from 5.30 pm before enjoying a three-course dinner from 6.30 pm. Coffee will be served at your leisure.

Following a hearty breakfast, why not take a stroll along Sidmouth’s Esplanade and take in the stunning views of the Jurassic Coast, or perhaps browse Sidmouth’s many independent shops for those last-minute gifts. A light lunch is available in the dining room at 12.30 pm, followed by mulled wine and mince pies. Tonight’s celebrations start at 5.30 pm with pre-dinner aperitifs and olives in the bar, followed by
a delicious three-course table d’hôte dinner by candlelight at 7 pm whilst listening to music from our classic violinist. Later, you may wish to attend Midnight Mass at Sidmouth Parish Church.

Wake up to a leisurely breakfast in the morning. Perhaps work up an appetite with a walk up Peak Hill!
A traditional Christmas lunch with all the trimmings will be served in our Regency dining room from 12.30 pm. Relax in the afternoon with cards, or the Queen’s Speech. We hope you have saved room for a buffet supper at 6.30 pm in the dining room. After, a selection of cheese and Port will be served in the bar.

Enjoy a relaxed breakfast with the morning papers. The famous Boxing Day swim takes place at Port Royal where locals brave the winter waters to raise money for charity (weather permitting) – wrap up warm! Soup and a selection of sandwiches will be available in the dining room at 12.30 pm. If you’re a rugby fan make your way to Sidmouth Rugby Club in the afternoon and watch the annual Boxing Day game (Presidents vs Chiefs). Tonight join us at 5.30 pm and enjoy a selection of refreshing gin and tonics in the bar, before a four-course table d’hôte dinner at 6.30 pm.

After breakfast, we say goodbye and hope that you have enjoyed your Christmas stay with us.
