Santa is returning to Readymoney on Saturday 3rd December!

We are delighted to be bringing back our Santa By The Sea Grotto for a third year, what better way to visit the big man than in our custom built grotto overlooking Fowey's beautiful Readymoney Cove. This is the same weekend as Fowey's fabulous Christmas Market so a great way to get you feeling really festive!

Please use the drop down menu to select the number of children attending (you do not need to book places for accompanying adults). You will receive an order confirmation email once you have completed checkout but please read all the booking information below prior to booking. It would be really helpful for Santa if you could please use the "order special instructions" box in the shopping cart to add the names and ages of your children, it helps make the visit more magical if Santa doesn't need to ask your child's name !

Please hang onto this email so that you have all the information you need on the day. You do not need to bring the email with you as we will have the names of the attending children on a list.

Booking info:

You can attend at any time during your hour long time slot for one visit with Father Christmas and visits will take place on a first-come-first served basis during that hour. Pre-booked customers will be given priority over walk-in customers but if you attend outside your pre-booked slot you may have to wait slightly longer.Our elves will be reading Christmas stories outside on the wall as you wait.

Our gifts are craft based and suitable for all ages (other than babes in arms) but children under 3 will require adult supervision with their gifts. Each paid for child will be given a gift bag and a hot chocolate voucher (dairy free alternatives are available) and will also be offered a wrapped sweet as they leave. If you would prefer your children not to be offered sweets or have particular dietary requirements please have a word with the elves on your way in.

The grotto will be under cover in the shelter facing the beach. This is a well ventilated outside area but there will be screening up in order to maintain the mystery! In the event of very adverse winds we will relocate the grotto into the (suitably decorated) unisex toilet area.
