Our aim at Waterhead is for you to unwind, relax and completely spoil you with our sumptuous selection of culinary delights throughout your stay, whilst enjoying our home from home atmosphere.
2013 Christmas Breaks - Programme
Christmas Eve – Tuesday 24th December 2013
Following a warm welcome and glass of our ‘secret recipe’ homemade mulled wine on arrival, you can unwind and relax in our Bar and Lounge whilst enjoying some festive nibbles with stunning views over the Lake to the fells beyond. Suitably refreshed, why not discover the delights of Ambleside, to buy that last minute Christmas present or alternatively relax and unwind in our bar and lounge with a glass of your favourite tipple.
Mark Needham, General Manager, and his team then welcome you to the evening celebrations with a Champagne and canapé reception, followed by a luxurious four course dinner in the stylish surroundings of the Bar & Grill Restaurant.
It’s then time for our ever-popular casino night with blackjack, roulette and the wheel of fortune game. The local parish churches welcome the community and visitors alike for midnight mass and a glass of mulled wine will await your return to the hotel.
Christmas Day - Wednesday 25th December 2013
Our chimneys will be swept in anticipation of a seasonal visitor who will greet you with presents and a glass or two of Bucks Fizz prior to a full Christmas breakfast. Although we’re sure that for many the rest of the morning may be spent opening gifts, why not enjoy some stimulating and invigorating Lakeland air on one of our local walks where we will give you a flask of mulled wine to enjoy on your way. Hopefully, you’ll now have some space for our traditional six course Christmas Day lunch served with all the trimmings, followed by the Queen’s speech televised at 3pm in the bar. The afternoon is yours to enjoy the obligatory board game or a Christmas movie, or maybe even a cheeky siesta.
Join us again in the evening for a light, but sumptuous, buffet supper, before we invite you to take the rest of the evening as the perfect opportunity to unwind, following the exertions of the day.
Boxing Day - Thursday 26th December 2013
Relax and enjoy a well-earned lie-in! Brunch will be served in the Bar & Grill. Following this, you could take advantage of a complimentary cruise on Lake Windermere or head for the sales in the village.
In the afternoon we will be hosting our tea party with a twist; there could be a mouse in your tea pot or a rabbit in your hat?
This evening’s three course dinner will feature our chef’s twist on some traditional British Pub favourites served in the Bar & Grill, keeping with the theme it’s then time to assemble your team for the Waterhead Festive Pub Quiz with prizes for the lucky winners.
A drink or two overlooking Lake Windermere will round off a memorable and relaxing Christmas at Waterhead.
Friday 27th December 2013
Following a final hearty Lakeland breakfast the team at the Waterhead will bid you farewell and look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.
