Christmas Day

Our ‘Bucks Fizz’ breakfast gets the day off to a good start and is served for you in the Restaurant. Please keep a look out for a visit from the man himself Father Christmas as will be calling in on his way back to the North Pole with gifts for all. There will be time to take a stroll around the village with our picture Treasure Hunt, a dip in the hotel pool or fountain Spa could also be squeezed in so you can build up an appetite for superb Christmas Day Lunch, complete with all the usual festive trimmings. After lunch it’s time for the Queens speech, or a quick snooze (don’t worry we won’t tell anyone), board games and quizzes are also available to try your hand at. You may prefer just to collapse in to a comfy arm chair with a cup of tea and home made ginger bread or shortbread and have a go at guessing the weight of the cake, a Salutation seasonal tradition. Our ever popular yuletide gala buffet is served this evening with a little musical entertainment from our pianist, afer dinner it’s time to relax in the bar and lounges.

We set sail from Waterhead for our ever popular cruise where you can discover the Lakeland scenery from the water, there will be our Jazz trio Trickle Charge performing on board  to keep you all up beat while lunch is served. After our cruise its back to the hotel for tea, coffee and a selection of cakes . Alternatively if you don’t fancy the lake cruise why not pick up a walkers pack from reception and explore the highlands or lowlands of Ambleside, or check out the ‘flicks’ and see a film at Zefferellis cinema with our compliments.
