Delightful Lakes at Christmas

On arrival at our Lake District hotel we are greeted with mince pies while you check in and relax. This evening you can enjoy a glass of wine with dinner and meet the hotel team looking after you this Christmas. After dinner you can test your festive knowledge with a Christmas quiz before you are treated to a performance from the Penrith Brass Band!

Christmas Eve

Today we head to the heart of the Lakes, calling in at some of the region’s best-loved towns and villages. We spend some time in the waterside town of Bowness-on-Windermere with its display of Victorian and Edwardian architecture before continuing on to pretty Ambleside at the head of Windermere. After dinner this evening you will be entertained by a guitar vocalist before heading to bed to hang out your stocking!

Christmas Day

Relax and enjoy Christmas Day and all of it culinary delights! Coffee and biscuits will be available in the lounge mid-morning and then a glass of bubbly and canape's are served prior to your traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings! An afternoon of relaxation will be in order before tea and Christmas cake are served following the Queen’s speech. The Birkbeck restaurant offers a buffet dinner this evening and afterwards entertainment is provided by a comedian and magician.

Boxing Day

After breakfast today we head out on a half day tour to Keswick, set on the shores of Derwent Water amid spectacular scenery. We return to the hotel for a buffet lunch. Dinner this evening is again followed by entertainment.

Time to check out and start heading home with fond memories of Christmas, comfort breaks will be made en-route as we journey back to your original pick up point.
