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, followed by port and cheese nibbles, prepared by our Head Chef, in the award-winning rosette restaurant. After dinner, relax with a selection of board games in the lounge areas.

New Year's Eve

Prepare for the forthcoming celebrations with a hearty Cumbrian breakfast and a glass of Bucks Fizz. If you’re in the mood for fresh air, enjoy our not-too strenuous recommended to a picturesque location and enjoy a glass of sloe gin at the half way point (weather permitting).

Once the crisp Lakeland air has stimulated the senses, return to the comfort of the hotel to enjoy a warming bowl of soup and freshly prepared sandwich. 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, enjoy live music from Luke Matear. On the stroke of midnight, we wish you all a Happy New Year with a glass of bubbly and a tasty snack! Look out for the piper during the evening.

New Year's Day

As the world wakes up to a brand-new year, we welcome you down for a hearty Cumbrian breakfast and a pick-me-up Bloody Mary or a glass of Bucks Fizz.

Afterwards, join our fun treasure hunt taking place in the beautiful surroundings of the hotel – the winner gets a special prize! 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 (Lakes Distillery tour must be pre-booked prior to your arrival).

In the afternoon, our Jazz lunch will be served, where we’ll transport you to the French Quarter of New Orleans from 12noon – 3pm, whilst tapping your toes to the sounds of the live Jazz Band.

Tea and crumpets with Cumberland rum butter will be served, 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!

Celebrate New Year with us 3 nights from £610 per person.
