Where better to spend Christmas than at this Georgian Country House with 12 individually designed bedrooms yet all the warmth of a home from home. After all it was the family home of John Callcott Horsley, the creator of the first Christmas card. We offer fully inclusive accommodation breaks and also welcome non-residents to join in the festivities (booking essential).
Our 2013 three day break showcases the best of Devonshire hospitality. Situated on the stunning South Devon coast, Orestone also enjoys spectacular countryside and has a wealth of local attractions to explore.
Why not join us this year for a magical Devonshire Christmas?
Our Christmas menus have been crafted by Daniel Morris, who has trained under Simon Hulstone at the Michelin starred Elephant in Torquay. Using the freshest local produce Daniel's menus are traditional English with a modern European twist.
If you are local to the hotel and simply wish to join us for a Christmas Eve, Christmas Day Lunch or Dinner, or Boxing Day Lunch or Dinner just contact reception to book.
All of our bedrooms are individually decorated and fall into four types: Suites, Junior Suites, Superior Rooms and Classic Rooms. Most have sea views and some of our Suites and Superior Rooms feature four poster beds, sleigh beds, roll-top baths and balconies.
On arrival on Christmas Eve cosy up in front of the roaring log fires with a traditional Devon Cream Tea. Later, enjoy a gourmet dinner with entertainment.
Christmas day follows and after a champagne breakfast why not take a stroll in the grounds, an invigorating walk along the beautiful Devon coastline or just relax in the hotel? After working up an appetite enjoy a traditional 6 course Christmas lunch and all the trimmings. We will be hosting a fun general knowledge quiz in the afternoon with a chance to win some prizes before a relaxed buffet dinner in the evening.
