See in the New Year in style, with a hearty Cumbrian breakfast and a glass of Bucks Fizz. If you feel fresh air is on the agenda, enjoy our recommended New Year’s Day walk to a local beauty spot, followed by soup, sandwiches and delicious sweet treats in front of the roaring fire.

In the afternoon, gather the family for a ride on an Ullswater Steamer around the lake (weather permitting).

Later, dress to impress for a photo in front of the Christmas tree, which is then yours to take home as a memento of your stay. Tonight’s six course black-tie dinner has been prepared by our Head Chef and his team throughout the day, so you can look forward to a unique dining experience with live entertainment from Destiny Duo.

Raise your glass for a Champagne toast and night time snack on the stroke of midnight with our traditional piper.

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 glass of Bucks Fizz.

Afterwards, enjoy a leisurely morning with a stroll to the spectacular Aira Force waterfall, or join our fun treasure hunt around the hotel grounds, followed by our Jazz lunch, served from 12noon – 3pm, here you can relax and recover from last night’s festivities whilst listening to our jazz band, with sounds from New Orleans and Mississippi.

Make time to pose for a fun illustration from Robin the Cartoonist before your sparkling four course farewell dinner. Later, join us for a bit of light-hearted fun in the lounges where your knowledge of all things trivial will be tested to the full with our special New Year’s quiz – with prizes to be won. Then put your taste buds to the test in our fun sparkling wine blind tasting.

Celebrate New Year with us from £660 per person.
