Christmas Eve

Arrive in time to settle into your warm and welcoming room before enjoying hot mulled wine and mince pies in the cosy lounge. Your evening commences with a sparkling cocktail and canapés reception where our General Manager and his team will inform you of the exciting three day programme ahead.

We then make our way to the new look restaurant for an exquisite five course Gala dinner, followed by a magical, candlelit procession to the shores of lake Derwentwater. Armed with a glass of Baileys hot chocolate in one hand and a sparkler in the other, enjoy Christmas stories from our Town Crier as you lose yourself in the beauty of the Lake District (weather permitting).

Later in the evening, don’t miss the Keswick Choir Christmas concert in the Market Square, outside the hotel. The live music and lovely atmosphere is sure to get you in the festive spirit.



Christmas Day

Our hearty Cumbrian breakfast on Christmas morning has added sparkle with a glass of Bucks Fizz, and who knows, perhaps Santa will still be about!

Enjoy the morning at your leisure, whether you choose to relax at the hotel, take a stroll to the lake to feed the ducks, or join in our Christmas treasure hunt around Keswick for the chance to win a prize. Don’t forget to take part in our Christmas cake competition.

After the Lakeland air has stimulated your appetite, it will be time to join us in the restaurant where your orders will be taken for a sumptuous six course Christmas Day lunch followed by coffee and Christmas cake with the Queen’s speech at 3pm.

In the evening, our fabulous Cumbrian ‘Lakes and Fells’ buffet will be served, allowing you to sample some traditional local delicacies prepared by our Head Chef and his team. With relaxation in mind we have prepared a fun Christmas quiz for a chance to win a prize.



Boxing Day

After a truly traditional Cumbrian breakfast, wrap up warm and enjoy a guided walk to a scenic location where you’ll be greeted with a welcoming hot and cold buffet. Depending on how energetic you feel, continue your walk and take in the scenery, or return to town and take advantage of the Boxing Day sales.

In the afternoon enjoy a classic game of bingo for the chance to win some fabulous prizes.

Then, to give you a proper send off, enjoy a special mouth-watering, five course farewell dinner followed by an evening of relaxing live music in the smart lounge bar.
