Three-nights with dinner and New Year trimmings.

Seasonal feasting, floating in the pool, fireside moments, a festive cocktail list. Countdown on the Living Space deck as the champagne flows, all rounded off with a New Year's Day paddle, swim or stomp to start 2025 off right.

What to expect from your three-night break

Seasonal feasting, floating in the pool, and fireside moments exploring the festive cocktail list under the stars. All rounded off with a New Year’s Day head-clearing paddle, swim or stomp to start 2025 off right.

30 December

Mulled wine and mince pies as you arrive, shrug off the Christmas chaos and let us take the reins. Children can head to Kids’ Zone for festive action, while you unwind in the pool, hot tub or with a good book in the library. Get wetsuited up for a star-gazing swim or take it easy with pizzas in the Glasshouse.

New Year’s Eve

Breakfast waffles set you up to explore Ullswater on foot, by paddleboard – with festive Kids’ Zone sessions onboard too. Head back for a drop-in Champagne-tasting session to spark the New Year’s Eve spirits, before a three-course dinner in Rampsbeck, live music and dancing until the big countdown. Sparklers and Champagne on the lawn as midnight strikes.

New Year’s Day

Head to the jetty for a New Year dip, or settle in with a hair-of-the-dog in the library. Watch from the deck as the children get stuck into games and archery by the shore, or, later, make their dinner at the Little Chefs Pizza School in the Glasshouse. Will you muster the energy for a walk through the foothills, kayaking or stand-up paddle boarding on Ullswater, or will the fell-view hot tub and deep sofas get your vote?

2 January

Wake up to fresh air, lake views and one last swim in the pool, before taking your time over a lazy breakfast and bidding us farewell, until next year.
