Christmas is one of the most magical times of the year in the English Lake District and at Holbeck Ghyll Country House Hotel they celebrate the only way they know how – with lavish feasts, fine wines, roaring log fires and good company.
Following last year’s fabulous event the team is delighted to advise that they have even more treats and surprises to add, along with a few small tweaks to the usual package which the returning guests have come to know and love over the past few years.
Holbeck Ghyll’s Christmas package starts on Friday, 23rd December where you will arrive to mulled wine and festive afternoon tea before a five course dinner served in the oak restaurant.
On Christmas eve you will wake to a stunning winter scene while enjoying a full Cumbrian breakfast to start your day. Later, afternoon tea will be served before a special black-tie gourmet menu is served in the oak restaurant with light entertainment. Optional transport has been arranged for a midnight mass service at Troutbeck.
Christmas day sees the arrival of a very special visitor! Celebrate during full English breakfast and socialise in the lounges with fellow guests. Christmas lunch, prepared by the head chef, will be served at 12.30pm – party poppers and whizzy balloons will be at the ready!
Following the Queen’s speech (shown in the lounges), you will be treated to even more food! Christmas cake and festive afternoon tea will be available before a light evening buffet and (optional) party games with the Holbeck team as the evening comes to a close.
Boxing day is a day of rest and exploration. Should you wish, join the General Manager Joseph, and his dog Mini, for a 2 hour walk from the hotel…he promises not to get lost! Warming drinks will be served half-way round the walk. If you prefer to explore the area at your own pace, lake cruise tickets will be available from reception for all guests.
In the evening, join in for a five course menu served in the award winning restaurant, before visiting the optional fun casino for the final night of celebrations.
The 27th December marks the end of Holbeck Ghyll’s Christmas package. Enjoy full English Breakfast before concluding your visit.
