Enjoy a festive stay in the heart of ancient Exeter

A perfect place for a festive break, Exeter is bursting with heritage and is regarded as one of England’s most historically significant towns. On this UK holiday, enjoy the festivities of the season during a stay at the Mercure Exeter Rougemont Hotel (3Q+). Arrive on December 23 in time for a welcome drink and dinner with your host and fellow guests.

Christmas Eve starts with an included morning excursion to the Gothic masterpiece, Exeter Cathedral. Following a buffet lunch at the hotel, join an included excursion to Powderham Castle to take in its festive delights. Enjoy dinner and musical entertainment at the hotel as the build-up to the big day continues.

Merry Christmas! Wake up on Christmas Morning and join your fellow guests at breakfast. This morning is at leisure so perhaps use the hotel’s complimentary Wi-Fi to catch up with loved ones via video call before returning to the restaurant for a sumptuous Christmas lunch. If you still have room there will be mince pies, tea and coffee served during the Queen’s speech this afternoon, with dinner and some festive entertainment to look forward to this evening.

On Boxing Day morning, take a stroll into town to take advantage of the sales before returning to your hotel for lunch. Afterwards, enjoy an afternoon at leisure and dinner. You depart the next day after breakfast.
