We’re delighted to welcome you to The Borrowdale Hotel to experience how relaxing and enjoyable a traditional Christmas can be. New and returning guests will enjoy the festive atmosphere created by the many decorated Christmas trees and twinkling lights inside and out. Renowned for our warm hospitality, excellent wines and cuisine, our aim is to make your festive break a magical occasion for you to share with family and friends both old and new.
Arrive in time to settle into your warm and welcoming room, before joining us in the cosy lounges by the roaring fires for a light cream tea buffet of fresh scones with jam and clotted cream.
The evening commences with a sparkling cocktail and canapés reception with our General Manager and team, while a visit from the local carol singers is set to get you in the Christmas mood.
Afterwards, pose for a photo in front of the Christmas tree, which is then yours to take home as a memento of your stay, before making your way into the AA Rosette restaurant for a splendid four course gala dinner. After dinner, find a cosy chair in the bar lounge and enjoy the soothing tunes from our charming singer, Glen Anderson.
Start your day with a bit of magic, as we say good morning with a traditional Cumbrian breakfast and a glass of Bucks Fizz, and who knows, perhaps Santa will still be about!
Enjoy the morning at your leisure, whether you choose to relax in the comfort of the hotel or join in the Christmas treasure hunt, in our beautiful surroundings – there’s even a chance to win a prize!
After the Lakeland air has stimulated your appetite, it will be time to enjoy a sumptuous five course Christmas Day lunch in the AA Rosette restaurant. Make sure you leave room for coffee and Christmas cake which will be served during the Queen’s speech at 3pm. In the evening, enjoy a selection of local delicacies as we present our Cumbrian ‘Lakes and Fells’ buffet, prepared by our talented Head Chef and his team. After a day of festive fun, unwind with our Christmas quiz and guess the weight of the Christmas cake competition for a chance to win a prize.
After a truly traditional Cumbrian breakfast, join us on a guided walk to a picturesque location. We’ve got a tempting banquet of homemade pizza and refreshments awaiting your arrival.
On your return to the hotel, a light hot and cold lunch buffet awaits accompanied by our indulgent hot chocolate station where you can expect the full works - milk and white chocolate, Nutella, whipped cream, mini marshmallows and more. Followed by a sparkling wine and mince pie tasting! In the evening, we’re joined by Robin the Cartoonist who will provide you with a unique memento of your stay with us. Afterwards, get ready for the magnificent four course Boxing Day dinner followed by port and cheese nibbles in the bar.
