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 or 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.

After  dinner it’s time to relax in the bar and lounges and let our magician entertain you with a little close up magic.
