December 30th

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 the warm welcome at our sparkling cocktail and canapés reception in the Front Bar, where you can meet with our General Manager and his team who will inform you of the exciting New Year plans for the next three days. 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).

New Years 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 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, head over to Keswick Brewery to enjoy an informative afternoon of real ale tasting.

Tonight’s six 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 to hits from the past and present with our live musician. 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, where the party continues.

Boxing Day

As the world wakes up to a brand-new year you are welcomed downstairs with a pick-me-up Bloody Mary and a tasty Brossen breakfast which will be served between 10am and 12pm.

Get your winter woollies and warm boots at the ready as we invite you on a guided walk to a beautiful surprise location, where an outdoor hot and cold picnic buffet awaits. For those of you not wanting to join the walk simply catch up on some ZZZ’s in your stylish bedroom or relax in the hotel with a selection of board games.

By the evening you’ll be ready for our special steak and lobster farewell dinner, during which 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!

Book a magical break from £789 per person.
