Spend the Festive Season in the Lakes

Given the restrictions this year it might be just the two of you, or a small family group so why not do something completely different and spend Christmas or New Year in the Lakes!

Our hotels have organised everything, put their christmas trees up and decided on who’s doing the washing up! Which leaves you to just sit back, enjoy the company of your loved ones and end the year in style.

We’ve highlighted three Christmas Breaks and three New Year Breaks to tempt you.

Christmas Breaks

Briery Wood Country House Hotel is set within seven acres of beautiful gardens between Windermere and Ambleside. They offer a relaxing three day break filled with cream teas, gourmet food, roaring log fires, quizzes and casino tables. A great location to explore the area for crisp walks and beautiful winter scenery, and lots of reasons to just stay inside and relax - the choice is yours!

Castle Green Hotel in Kendal is set in 14 acres of landscaped gardens and woodland, this time overlooking Kendal Castle and the Lakeland Fells. Christmas is a relaxed affair at Castle Green, you can enjoy your favourite tipple by their log burner in the bar, walks in the grounds or further field before Christmas day lunch in their two rosette Greenhouse Restaurant overlooking the gardens.

Imagine a Christmas spent surrounded by breathtaking scenery and one of the finest walking and climbing locations in the country, then you need to go to Langdale Hotel & Spa. They offer a relaxed Christmas break within their historic estate where you can enjoy fabulous food in their Stove Restaurant and the beautiful dark skies of the Langdale valley.

New Year Breaks

Welcome in 2021 with a New Year mini break at North Lakes Hotel. Penrith. The hotel team have thought of everything to ensure you can still enjoy a midnight toast as they will deliver half a bottle of Champagne to your room ready for Big Ben’s chimes! Coupled with a delicious buffet in their FYR restaurant, full use of the spa and a new year’s day brunch there’s nothing missing from this package.

The Netherwood Hotel. Grange over Sands is a beautiful Grade II listed Victorian mansion offering the perfect combination of old world charm and the essential modern facilities and comforts alongside breath-taking views across Morecambe Bay. Their two night New Year Package is perfect way to bring in the new year with relaxing spa, delicious dining, log fires and plenty of mulled wine and Champagne.

Where better to wave goodbye to 2020 than on the shores of Lake Windermere in the Victorian elegance of Langdale Chase. Their New Year package concentrates on three key ingredients - fabulous food, seasonal drinks and great celebrations. They have plenty of space to relax and unwind in their three lounges, each with their own roaring log fire, a restaurant with the most impressive lake views, and bedrooms full of character and charm to escape to. You’ll depart with long lasting memories that will outlive any new year resolutions you make!
