Experience a magical Christmas in the Lakes
A warm welcome awaits you at the Lodore Falls Hotel for a traditional, festive celebration. Our famous hospitality complemented by tempting menus, crackling fires, comfortable bars and lounges will help you relax, unwind and enjoy a magical Christmas in the Lakes. Whether you are with family or friends, new and old, the atmosphere is always truly memorable, dazzling decorations inside and outside the hotel, and trees glowing with twinkling lights to create the perfect Christmas that you will treasure for years.
After settling into your welcoming room make your way downstairs to enjoy a delicious gin
afternoon tea buffet, including finger sandwiches, savoury treats, and festive cakes, all served
with tea or coffee. Choose a gin of your choice from our selection.
In the evening, join our General Manager and his friendly team for a sparkling cocktail and canapés reception, where a performance from a local music group will spread holiday cheer throughout the hotel. Afterwards, make your way to one of our restaurants for an exquisite blacktie dinner, where you’ll be mesmerised by our close-up magician and balloonist.
After dinner, enjoy relaxing music from pianist Tom Wilkinson, following which we have arranged a magical gathering at the lakeshore for some crisp fresh air and a glass of hot punch with toasted marshmallows on the bonfire. With only the light from our candles, the lake and surrounding mountains will make you feel as if you are in a winter wonderland.
Start your day with a traditional Cumbrian breakfast and add a bit of sparkle with a Mimosa
Cocktail, during which a very special guest will pay a visit! If you feel energetic you can join the
Christmas treasure hunt around our beautiful spa garden with the chance to win a giant box of
chocolates, the perfect way to get some fresh Lakeland air.
We hope you’ve built up an appetite as our Head Chef and his team serve up a fabulous six course Christmas Day lunch in the award-winning Lake View restaurant. After lunch, settle down for the Queen’s speech at 3pm with a cup of tea and a slice of homemade Christmas cake.
In the evening, enjoy a ‘Cumbrian Lakes and Fells’ buffet in the Lake View restaurant, offering the opportunity to taste some local specialities. Later on, with relaxation and fun in mind, we have prepared a light-hearted quiz, with the lucky winner receiving a fabulous spa day for two at our brand new “The Falls Spa”.
Breakfast on Boxing Day would not be the same without a Bellini Cocktail. Afterwards, head down to the
river bank for our fun charity duck race, where you can watch in anticipation as your duck races down the
river to the finish line, with a giant box of chocolates for the lucky winner.
If you feel more fresh air is on the agenda then why not join our guided walk to a special location where you can enjoy an al fresco lunch buffet whilst you admire the beautiful scenery. On your return to the hotel warm up at our hot chocolate station and enjoy some mince pies in front of the roaring lounge fires. Don’t forget to have a go at guessing the weight of the Christmas cake for a chance to win a Magnum of Champagne.
In the evening, join us for pre-dinner drinks in the bar where you can grab a fun prop, walk down the red carpet and strike a pose in front of our magic selfie mirror. The fun photograph is yours to take home as a memento of your stay. From here make your way to one of our restaurants for a fabulous four course dinner, including a tasting platter of amazing desserts, followed by live music from our singer John Penn in the Derwent Suite.
