On arrival, take a seat in the Orangery and listen to our harpist Alison Horn, whilst enjoying an indulgent cocktail afternoon tea, including finger sandwiches, savoury treats, festive cakes, tea and coffee, and a tempting cocktail.
In the evening, join our General Manager and his team for a sparkling wine and canapés reception before proceeding to the 2 AA Rosette Lake View restaurant for a four course dinner with a delicious dessert buffet.
Afterwards, join us on a candlelit walk to the Victorian gazebo by the lake for a hot toddy, toasted chestnuts and marshmallows. With only the light from our lanterns and the moonlight bouncing off the lake and surrounding mountains, you’ll feel as if you are in a Winter Wonderland.
See in the New Year in style, with a hearty Cumbrian breakfast and a 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 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). Admire the beautiful scenery, with a glass of hot mulled wine, a mince pie and slice of Christmas cake.
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, then carry on dancing until 1am.
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 to 2pm. Start with a Bucks Fizz and then make your way to the fabulous hot and cold buffet. Relax and recover from last night’s festivities whilst listening to our jazz band, with sounds from New Orleans and Mississippi.
If you feel fresh air is on the agenda, then why not join our guide, who will take you on a not-too strenuous New Year’s Day walk to a local beauty spot? In the afternoon, help yourself to our indulgent hot chocolate station, where you can expect the full works - milk and white chocolate, Nutella, whipped cream, mini marshmallows and more.
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 mince pie blind tasting.
