On Christmas Eve there is a splendid lunch outing a private boat on Lake Windermere, and on Christmas Day a Champagne reception is followed by the leisurely ‘Christmas Day Feast’ lasting throughout the afternoon (and a light supper later – if you can!). On Boxing Day we blow away the cobwebs with a wintry walk via Gilpin Lake House for hot punch with the reindeers and lunch by a roaring campfire. Book with us for Christmas for 4 nights and arrive a day early to enjoy an extra complimentary night on a bed and breakfast basis (subject to availability).
