Christmas Eve

After settling into your welcoming room make your way downstairs as the afternoon begins with a delicious gin afternoon tea buffet, including finger sandwiches, savoury treats and festive cakes, all served with tea or coffee. Choose a gin of your choice from our selection and take a seat with Robin the Cartoonist who will be available to provide you with a unique memento of your stay with us.

In the evening, join our General Manager and his friendly team for a sparkling cocktail and canapés reception, as he takes the opportunity to welcome you and tell you about the coming day’s events and entertainment. It’s then time to make your way to the AA Rosette Brossen Steakhouse for a stunning four course welcome dinner.

After dinner there will be a chance to experience the beauty of the lake and mountain scenery on a magical candlelit procession through the town to the shores of lake Derwentwater. Warm up with hot mulled wine and roasted chestnuts whilst you experience the beauty and tranquillity of the lake at night (weather permitting!).

Later in the evening, you can join in the festive celebrations in the Market Square just outside our hotel. Enjoy live music and carols from the Keswick choir; before heading back to the hotel for more Christmas cheer.

Christmas Day

Breakfast on Christmas Day is a leisurely affair. Start your day with a Brossen breakfast and add a bit of sparkle with a Bloody Mary or Christmas cocktail.

If you feel energetic you can join the Christmas treasure hunt around Keswick with the chance to win a giant box of chocolates, the perfect way to get some fresh Lakeland air and to build up an appetite for our Head Chef’s fabulous six course Christmas Day lunch. After lunch, relax in our lounge with a selection of board games; keep an eye out for Father Christmas who will pop by to say hello-ho-ho.

In the evening, enjoy a ‘Taste of the Lakes and Fells’ buffet, offering the opportunity to taste some local specialities. Later on, with relaxation in mind, we have prepared a Big Fat Christmas Quiz; an evening of fun and laughter with prizes to be won!

P.S. Don’t forget to enter our competition - Guess the Weight of the Christmas Cake!

Boxing Day

After enjoying a delicious Brossen breakfast, join us on the Market Square for a glass of hot punch as the Blencathra Foxhounds set off on their traditional Boxing Day trail. From here we’ll encourage you to don your walking boots and join us on a guided Boxing Day walk to a beautiful surprise location, where a tasty hot and cold buffet lunch awaits. On your return to the hotel warm up with our hot chocolate station and mini festive treats in front of the cosy fire.

Soon it will be time to get ready for the mouthwatering four course steak and lobster dinner. Afterwards we request your company at the casino tables manned by professional croupiers. Fun money will be issued and the guest with the most money at the end of the evening wins a magnum of champagne!

Book a magical break from £825 per person.
