Enjoy Christmas in the Lake District

Where better to spend Christmas than a former Georgian mansion on the banks of Lake Windermere, from where you can drink in the beauty of the Lake District.

Macdonald Old England Hotel & Spa is a perfect location for your festive celebrations, where you are guaranteed a warm welcome, tables adorned with festive novelties and the delicious foods of the season served in the stylish restaurant. After arriving at the hotel on December 23, look forward to a welcome drink of mulled wine to help you settle into your surroundings before dinner. Enjoy a buffet breakfast on Christmas Eve before you can look forward to what is sure to be a breathtaking, and bracing, cruise on gorgeous Lake Windermere this morning. Return to the hotel for a buffet lunch and a relaxing afternoon at leisure. Enjoy some live piano music performed over dinner, another another three-course affair with coffee, which should help if you wish to attend Midnight Mass this evening, St Martin’s Church is located just over the road from the hotel.

Kick-off Christmas Day with a breakfast buffet before a morning at leisure - why not use the hotel’s complimentary Wi-Fi to catch up with friends or family via video call before returning to the restaurant for a sumptuous Christmas lunch. If you still have room this afternoon there will be mince pies, tea and coffee served during the Queen’s speech. Dinner tonight is a lighter, buffet-style affair.

After breakfast on Boxing Day, look forward to a very special included excursion to help clear your head of any festive excesses. The Lake District’s natural beauty and abundant wildlife inspired Beatrix Potter to write her much-loved stories. Just a short stroll from the hotel entrance is the World of Beatrix Potter – an attraction which draws hundreds of thousands of tourists each year who flock to explore this wonderful landscape where Potter’s tales are brought to life. Be sure to keep an eye out for that pesky Peter Rabbit and watch your step in Mr McGregor’s garden.

There will be another buffet lunch back at the hotel this afternoon and your final dinner with your fellow guests. Check out after breakfast the following day to begin your journey home.
