Christmas and New Year 2018 – 2019

Your Christmas, all Wrapped up.

Imagine your very own 3-night Christmas retreat. Delicious festive food, cosy lounges, a roaring fire in a stunning historic setting, being waited on hand and foot, and where your doggie best friend is made welcome.

Let us look after you and give you the most wonderful Christmas where you can relax, unwind and totally switch off over the festive break. If you already have Christmas covered but would like a delicious Afternoon Tea treat with a glass or two of bubbly, or are looking to book a Christmas party for friends or colleagues, our hotel has many festive options for you. My team and I would love to host you this Christmas, so get in touch.
