Look forward to a musical Christmas!

Join us for a Christmas UK holiday with a difference! Once you’ve arrived and settled in, get to know your fellow guests at a welcome drinks reception. After dinner, join your hosts and pianist Ken Roberts for your first in-house concert entitled Just a Song at Twilight to get your festive break off to a great start.

On Christmas Eve after breakfast depart on your included excursion to grand Bath Abbey, boasting more than 1,200 years of history. After lunch in the hotel enjoy your second concert, Songs and Snatches while after dinner at your hotel tonight, get into the festive mood with a Christmas Eve concert named Carols and Capers. On Christmas Day enjoy a leisurely breakfast with some free time before a traditional Christmas lunch with an included glass of wine. There's a fun music quiz in the afternoon and, after a buffet supper, your hosts will give a Christmas Night concert – Festive Favourites – to round off the day perfectly. On Boxing Day morning there's a piano recital by Ken Roberts, followed by lunch, after which you might wish to join your fellow guests for the screening of a DVD. Your farewell dinner precedes a final concert from your hosts, entitled Songs of Love and Laughter, as your Christmas break winds to a close. Depart the next day after breakfast.

Bath Abbey

Look forward to an included half-day excursion to historic Bath Abbey, an oasis of calm and reflection in the bustling heart of the historic city centre. The former Benedictine monastery was founded in the 7th century and the Grade 1-listed Abbey – still a parish church in the Church of England – was the scene of the coronation of King Edgar in 973 AD and 1,000 years later played host to Queen Elizabeth II to mark the anniversary.

Please note: Sensible footwear should be worn as narrow stone spiral staircases must be navigated independently on tours. There are 212 steps to the top of one tower, though guests can opt to remain at lower levels and learn more about the tapestries on display, rather than attempting the climb.
