January 2023 - St Moritz Hotel

From wet and windy walks to afternoons in the spa there's plenty to do along the wild Cornish coast this January...

The festive season is over and many of us ponder how to start the new year but it doesn’t have to be dull – why not make a start on the Cornwall bucket list or do some exploring to start the year off right.

The weather starts to settle in January, milder than most of the UK with the occasional storm rolling onto the shores of Cornwall making this the perfect time to get out and start your Cornish adventure. Empty beaches and clean surf both add to the appeal of this far away place in the middle of a gloomy British winter.

Start your day with a long walk along the coast path, enjoying the elements only to come back to the warmth of the fire in the Shorecrest Bar. Indulge in a creamy hot chocolate and with a side of smores before making your way to the spa.  Don a fluffy white robe, inhale the scent of calm and float off into a deep sense of relaxation. Amble off to your room for an afternoon of storm watching or reading a book in a cosy corner after an indulgent shower using the best of Cowshed Products.

Days with St Moritz can be filled with relaxation, adventure or both no matter the weather. So come and indulge, tick off that bucket list and explore the wild Cornish coast with us…

'' Wrap up well and brave the outside with a walk along the shore and nine times out of ten it’ll just be you, the sea and the sky ''
