30th December

Start your New Year’s break by settling into your warm and welcoming room before heading downstairs for tea and cake served in the lounges in front of the roaring fires or in the airy conservatory.

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 of the coming day’s events and entertainment. Later on, we enjoy a wonderful 4 course welcome dinner, prepared by our Head Chef, which can be enjoyed in the candlelit restaurant. 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.

There was a wide choice of excellent food, very well presented and served. The staff as always have excelled themselves with their service efficiency and their attitude towards the guests. M Cosby, Newcastle

News Years Eve

Prepare for the forthcoming day and night’s celebrations with a hearty Cumbrian breakfast and 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 or make your way into Keswick for a little retail therapy.

Once the crisp Lakeland air has stimulated the senses, we return to the roaring fires in the hotel and enjoy a delicious light afternoon tea buffet of scones, homemade jam and clotted cream accompanied by lashings of tea. In the evening prepare yourself for a unique dining experience, as our Head Chef and his team have been busy during the day preparing a sumptuous 5 course Gala dinner, which is sure to impress. Join us in the lounge bar after the spectacular dinner where our resident DJ will entertain until 1am. On the stroke of midnight we wish you all a Happy New Year with a glass of bubbly and continue the celebrations. Shortly after, enjoy bacon baps, before a final fling on the dancefloor! Look out for the piper during the evening!




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

New Years Day

There is no need to hurry down to breakfast, because today we are hosting our famous brunch from 9:30am to 2:30pm with a glass of Bucks Fizz or Bloody Mary accompanied by a live jazz band. It’s your choice whether to take a late breakfast or simply join us for a leisurely lunch. If you feel fresh air is on the agenda then why not join our guided walk starting at the hotel to take in some of the beautiful local Borrowdale fells - stout footwear required.

Tea, crumpets and Cumberland rum butter are served on your return, followed by a relaxed wine tasting experience, with an intriguing selection of wines for you to cast your opinions on. At night, a 4 course celebration dinner will be prepared by our Head Chef and his team, after which your presence will be needed in the lounge bar for our New Year’s Day quiz, where your knowledge of the past year will be tested to the full with prizes to be won!
