30th December

Start your New Year’s break by settling into your warm and welcoming room and enjoy tea with scones and cream.

In the evening, join our General Manager and his team for a cocktail and canapés reception, to meet friends old and new, before preparing for a delicious dinner with a ‘deadly’ twist... Test your sleuthing skills between courses at our Mystery on 34th Street murder mystery, held in the atmospheric Georgian ballroom bedecked with beautiful decorations.

Get involved in solving the murder whilst you indulge in our festive three course dinner!

We had a fantastic time and was well looked after by all of the staff. We could not have asked for more or been treated better Mr and Mrs Butlers

New Years Eve

After a hearty breakfast, step aboard our private coach and enjoy the scenic drive (approx. 50 minutes) to the recently renovated 1850’s dairy farm now the Lakes Distillery.* You will be taken on a grand tour to learn the history and the processes involved in whisky making. After a wee dram (or two) you will be whisky’d away to the beautiful town of Keswick. Here you will enjoy a light lunch at LBs Pizza House and a little shopping time too.

On return to the hotel tea and hot buttered crumpets await you while you take some time to relax by the open fires. Soon it will be time to change into your finery for a fabulous night in our magnificent Ballroom. Starting with champagne and canapés, we indulge in a sumptuous celebratory dinner before our resident DJ takes charge with music from past and present, guaranteed to have you dancing into the early hours.

At midnight, the Piper welcomes 2018 in style! *Please note guests will need to advise the hotel PRIOR TO ARRIVAL if they wish to take part in the tour to The Lakes Distillery.




New Years Day

For those guests who leave us today, we bid you a fond farewell after breakfast and look forward to your company once again in 2018. If you wish to extend your break, please take advantage of our ‘stay a little longer’ rates and enjoy the live music in the bar after dinner.


The George was incredible and second to none. The food was very lovely and never a lack of it. Would recommend this hotel to any who would listen! Mrs Erica
