Welcome in the New Year in style
It’s time to wave goodbye to the old year and welcome in the new at the Borrowdale Hotel. If you’ve spent Christmas looking after family and friends, this is your chance to sit back, relax and enjoy the warm, friendly and convivial atmosphere. Let us pamper you with exquisite cuisine, great service and some fantastic events to make this your most memorable New Year’s celebration yet!
Start your New Year’s break by settling into your warm and welcoming room before heading
downstairs for a light buffet of scones, jam and clotted cream followed by an informative and light
hearted afternoon of gin tasting.
In the evening you are invited to a sparkling cocktail and canapés reception hosted by our General Manager and his team in the lounge bar, as he takes the opportunity to tell you of the coming days’ events and entertainment.
Later on, enjoy a wonderful four course welcome dinner, prepared by our Head Chef, in the candlelit AA rosette restaurant. After dinner relax with a selection of board games in the lounge areas, where you can help yourself to cheese and port.
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 you can join our fun treasure hunt.
Once the crisp Lakeland air has stimulated the senses, return to the roaring fires in the hotel and enjoy a light lunch of soup, sandwiches and sweet treats, where Robin the Cartoonist will be available to provide you with a unique souvenir of your stay.
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 five course Gala dinner, which is sure to impress. Here you can pose for your photograph in front of the Christmas tree and then take it home as a memento.
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 a midnight snack before a final fling on the dancefloor! Look out for the piper during the evening!
There is no need to hurry down to breakfast if you have had a late night, because today we are serving
a jazz brunch from 10am – 2pm. Start with a Bucks Fizz and then make your way to the fabulous hot
and cold buffet, whilst tapping your toes to the sounds of the live Jazz Band.
If you feel fresh air is on the agenda then why not join our not-too strenuous guided walk to a surprise
location and enjoy a tasty treat at the half way point (please remember warm clothing and appropriate
