Christmas Eve

Arrive at the hotel this afternoon to the lovely aroma of mulled wine and mince pies being served in the lounges in front of the roaring fires. In the evening, we gather in the lounge bar for a pre-dinner cocktail and canapés reception and meet our General Manager and his team, as he takes the opportunity to tell you about the coming day’s events and entertainment.

The Borrowdale carol singers will visit during the early evening to get us in the Christmas mood before making your way into the restaurant where an exquisite welcome dinner will be prepared by the Head Chef and his team. After dinner it’s time to head outside to enjoy a glass of hot punch and toasted marshmallows round the chimenea as you experience the peace and tranquillity of the Borrowdale valley at night.

Christmas Day

Start your day with a traditional Cumbrian breakfast and a little bit of sparkle with a glass of Bucks Fizz. After a relaxing morning, if fresh air seems like a good idea, why not take a stroll to the shore of lake Derwentwater.

After the Lakeland air has stimulated your appetite it will be time to meet in the lounges, where orders will be taken for a sumptuous 5 course Christmas Day lunch. Make sure you leave room for coffee and Christmas cake before settling down for the Queen’s speech at 3pm.

In the evening the bar is open for pre-dinner drinks and the fabulous ‘Taste of the Lakes and Fells’ buffet will be served, providing a perfect opportunity for you to taste some traditional Cumbrian specialities and delicacies. With relaxation in mind we have prepared a fun Christmas quiz to round off the day, with prizes to be won.




I have spent many Christmasses here, with guests who return time and time again, and have formed lasting friendships with others. Surely this indeed speaks for itself. M Heseltine, Richmond

Boxing Day

A true Cumbrian breakfast will be served to get you going for the day ahead. Weather permitting; a guided walk will set off from the hotel to a spectacular location shortly after breakfast (suitable clothing and footwear advised!)

A light afternoon tea buffet of scones, homemade jam and clotted cream accompanied by lashings of tea will be served on your return, followed by a relaxed wine tasting experience, with an intriguing selection of wines for you to cast your opinions on. Afterwards sink into one of our comfortable chairs and take some time to relax in the lounges. Soon it will be time to change and get ready for the magnificent 4 course Boxing Day dinner which is followed by our resident DJ and dancing till midnight.
