30th December

After settling into your luxury 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. This evening feel truly treated at our sparkling cocktail and canapés reception in the Front Bar, where you can meet with our General Manager and his team who will let you know all of the exciting New Year plans for the next 3 days.

It's then time to make your way to the AA Rosette Brossen Steakhouse for a stunning four course welcome dinner, where Robin the Cartoonist will be available to provide you with a unique memento of your stay with us.

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!).

New Year's Eve

Prepare yourself for the forthcoming day and night’s celebrations with a hearty Brossen breakfast and mimosa cocktail. After breakfast, if you’re feeling energetic we have arranged a fun treasure hunt around Keswick’s Market Square with a chance to win a giant box of chocolates or you may wish to enjoy the Inn’s central location by ambling around the shops (plus spending in the sales!), sipping a coffee or taking a leisurely lakeside wander.

For a fun afternoon adventure, you might fancy taking advantage of free access to the award-winning Lake District Wildlife Park, only a short car journey away or if you’d prefer to stay indoors you can enjoy an informative afternoon of craft ale tasting. Tonight’s 6 course dinner has been prepared by our Head Chef and his team throughout the day, so you can look forward to a unique dining experience in Brossen Steakhouse. Keep an eye out for the piper!

After dinner, cut some shapes on the dancefloor in Brossen with music from our house DJ and as the clock nears midnight, in true Keswickian tradition, we’ll invite you outdoors to join the New Year’s Eve revellers for the 12 O’clock countdown in the Market Square. Head back inside the hotel for a glass of bubbly and a pulled pork roll with stuffing and apple sauce and our DJ will get you on the dance floor ‘til the early hours.

New Year's Day

As the world wakes up to a brand new year there is no hurry as you are welcomed downstairs with a pick-me-up; sparkling fruit punch or a Bloody Mary, and a tasty Brossen brunch which will be served between 10am and 2pm. Relax and recover from the night before as our singer Hannah Rose Pitchford entertains you throughout, a perfect way to start the New Year. Get your winter woollies and warm boots at the ready as we invite you on a guided walk to a beautiful surprise location where you can enjoy a glass of sloe gin and mince pie at the half way point. For those of you not wanting to join the walk simply catch up on some ZZZ’s in your warm bedroom or relax in the hotel with a selection of board games.

By the time it’s the evening you’ll be ready for our special steak and lobster farewell dinner, where you’ll be mesmerised with our close-up magician. As the perfect end to a great day, and with relaxation in mind, we’ll be hosting our New Year’s Day quiz; an evening of fun and laughter with prizes to be won!
