Gourmet food and a homely atmosphere await you at our festive hideaway, so why not make the most of the festive season this year with a luxurious Lake District Christmas break? Immerse yourself in the magic of Christmas with blazing log fires, seasonal decorations, quality entertainment and sumptuous food and beverages.


Christmas Eve

Our Lake District hotel package for Christmas begins on Christmas eve, where we begin festivities with a fun quiz accompanied by cocktails and canapes. After you have toasted the occasion, we will host a celebration dinner that features sumptuous dining which will whet your appetite ahead of the next day’s big Christmas feast.

You will also enjoy balloon entertainment and a magician, perfect for all the family. To really embrace the spirit of the season, there will be a Christmas carol session with mulled wine followed by an optional midnight mass.

After you’ve enjoyed your celebrations, head back to our luxurious rooms to relax ahead of the big day…


Christmas Day

Awake on Christmas morning, cradled in the cosiness of our beautiful lakeside hotel. Enjoy a six course Christmas feast followed by mince pies and discover why our restaurant is a double AA rosette award winner.

Enjoy the Queen’s speech whilst lounging in true comfort, and take a candlelit walk through our stunning grounds to be enveloped in the magic of Christmas in the Lake District. Return to the hall and enjoy a luxurious buffet for your evening meal. A local storyteller and Santa Claus himself will even drop by to ensure you are kept entertained throughout the day.

Of course, whether you just want to get away from it all and relax at Christmas whilst enjoying stunning scenery and delectable dining, or get involved in every activity, how you spend your Christmas day is entirely up to you.


Boxing Day

Enjoy boxing day your way. Whether you choose to lounge in the hotel and sip mulled wine and eat mince pies or you want to take to the countryside, there will be something for everyone. We offer both a low and mid-level fell walking experience that includes a packed lunch, giving you the chance to walk off your Christmas dinner and take in some of the Lake District’s stunning sights. You will also get the chance to see some of nature’s finest creatures take to the skies with a bird of prey display.

As the day turns to evening, enjoy a black tie dinner followed by an exciting casino themed event with fabulous prizes to win.

With entertainment galore and luxurious indulgence at every occasion, this is a Lake District hotel package for Christmas like nothing else. Join us and make this season more magical than ever.
