This New Year, we have prepared a programme full of exquisite cuisine, impeccable service, a warm atmosphere and unmissable events, creating a New Year unlike any you’ve ever experienced before. Scroll down to read all about the fabulous festivities that await you.
After settling into your warm and welcoming room, a delectable cream tea buffet awaits you in our cosy lounges; complete with jam, fresh clotted cream and lashings of tea.
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 award-winning 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 celebrations with a hearty Cumbrian breakfast and a glass of Bucks Fizz. If you’re feeling energetic afterwards, join in our fun treasure hunt taking place in the beautiful surroundings of the hotel – the winner gets a special prize!
Once the crisp Lakeland air has stimulated the senses, return to the comfort of the hotel, where you can indulge on our hot and cold buffet lunch. Or alternatively, get ‘gin-spired’ at our informal gin tasting in the bar. Robin the Cartoonist will also be around to provide you with a unique memento of your stay.
In the evening, prepare yourself for a unique dining experience, as our Head Chef and his team have prepared a splendid five course gala dinner. Be sure to pose for a photo next to the Christmas tree before you take your seat.
After dinner, dance the night away, as our resident DJ entertains until 1am. On the stroke of midnight, we wish you all a Happy New Year with a glass of bubbly and a snack before a final fling on the dancefloor! Look out for the piper during the evening.
There is no need to get up early, as this morning we transport you to the French Quarter of New Orleans from 10am – 2pm, when we host our iconic jazz brunch. With a Bloody Mary or Bucks Fizz in hand, make your way to the fabulous hot and cold buffet, whilst tapping your toes to the sounds of the live Jazz Band.
If you’re in the mood for fresh air, join our not-too strenuous guided walk to a picturesque location and enjoy a glass of sloe gin at the half way point (weather permitting). Or take a trip to the Lakes Distillery for a guided tour and tasting, where you will learn the history and the processes involved in whisky making.
Tea and crumpets with Cumberland rum butter will be served on your return, followed by a relaxed sparkling wine blind-tasting session. In the evening, a four course farewell dinner is served in our award-winning restaurant, before relaxing in the lounge bar in time 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!
