Boxing Day

Affter a delicious Brossen breakfast, wrap up warm and enjoy our recommended Boxing Day walk to a beautiful location where a delightful packed lunch awaits. If you’d prefer to stay indoors, visit the Lakes Distillery for a guided tour and tasting, where you will learn the history and the processes involved in whisky making.

On your return to the hotel, warm up with an indulgent hot chocolate, choose from milk and white hot chocolate, Nutella, whipped cream, mini marshmallows and more.

We hope you’ve built up an appetite, as this evening we present a mouth-watering four course Surf & Turf dinner. Later on, find a cosy chair in the bar or lounge and enjoy the soothing tunes from our charming singer, Luke Matear.
