Lake District Christmas Breaks

If you’re considering spending Christmas away from home this year, then why not consider Rothay Garden.  And if you’re planning to spend the festive time at home again, why not give yourselves an early Christmas present and seriously consider letting us take care of everything in a fantastic friendly Christmas atmosphere!

The Lake District is the perfect place to spend the festive period.  The snow-capped fells and glassy lakes make this area as inviting as in the summer months.

Christmas in the Lake District


Christmas Eve
Travel to Rothay Garden and check in anytime after 2pm.  Proceedings commence at 7pm with a Champagne Cocktail Party to meet fellow guests and your hosts, the team at Rothay Garden, prior to sampling the first of our Head Chefs’ exciting festive menus.


Christmas Day
What better way to greet the big day than by commencing with a superb Champagne Brunch, to be enjoyed at your leisure... Then perhaps, an opportunity to sharpen the appetite and admire Lakeland's breathtaking scenery before returning for afternoon tea...but don't forget the main event awaits you this evening...

Christmas Dinner
Our traditional seven course Christmas Dinner commences at 7 pm and promises to be a most enjoyable celebration of the festivities.  Has Santa forgotten you? We will have to wait and see, in this sumptuous feast – truly a Christmas Dinner to remember!

Boxing Day
After all this wonderful food some exercise is required.  For those who wish to join us, we will take a stroll through some of the most picturesque scenery in the Lake District, before returning to a buffet lunch with a difference! 
Having experienced Lakeland's bracing air and magical scenery, we are sure you’ll be eager & ready to enjoy tonight's final celebratory dinner.

27th December
And time to bade farewell to friends old and new prior to departure.
