The Essence of Christmas

Seaside town of Weston-super-Mare
Encouraging evening Bible messages
Excursions to explore local highlights

"Oak Hall continues to offer a wide range of holidays in its summer programme that are designed with adventure in mind. For those who prefer a more mellow style we have arranged ideal tours with no overnight travel. All age groups are welcome, but this holiday may particularly appeal to those in the more mature age group."

The Essence of Christmas

Our 'Essence of Christmas holidays' have been very popular. For this refreshing break in 2023, we are staying at the 'Anchor Head Hotel' in Weston-super-Mare, in December .

Christmas is a wonderful time to enjoy refreshing celebrations and the joyful message of Jesus' birth.


The cost of £278 represents excellent value and includes:

  • Inspiring Bible series and music each evening
  • Luxury return coach travel from Otford, Kent to the hotel
  • Three-star hotel close to the beach and seafront
  • En-suite hotel rooms, all with tea making facilities
  • Optional sea view for 20 supplement per person
  • Full English breakfasts each morning

Excellent excursions

During the holiday, our first excursion will take us to the beautiful city of Bath, famous for its impressive Roman Baths and beautiful Georgian crescents. Dressed in Christmas lights and decorations, the city looks particularly appealing at this time of year.

On our second excursion we visit Cheddar Gorge. Here you might choose to enter the caves or walk in the stunning scenery. As the place where Cheddar cheese originated from, you must also try some of the local products, which tastes much better than the ones sold in the supermarket!  


A choice of meeting points

If you are travelling by car, you can park at Otford Manor in Kent (17 per car) or be dropped off at Sainsbury's in Otford. For those travelling by train we pick up at Otford Train station on the day of departure.

You can also meet us at the hotel in Weston-super-Mare if you prefer.
