Breakfast on Boxing Day would not be the same without a glass of the renowned Inn on the Lake hot punch. After breakfast we have arranged a guided walk from the hotel to a special location where you will see the Lake District at its most spectacular. On your return, soup, sandwiches and sweet treats await in front of the roaring lounge fire.
In the afternoon (weather permitting) gather the family for a ride on an Ullswater Steamer, admire the beautiful scenery, as you gently cruise along the lake, with a glass of hot mulled wine, mince pie and a slice of Christmas cake.
Later on, dress to impress for a photo in front of the Christmas tree, followed by a splendid six course black-tie dinner. Afterwards, join us at the James Bond themed casino tables where the first dry Martini – shaken, not stirred – is on us. Have a flutter with fun money for a chance to win a magnum of champagne.
