Lake District Christmas Breaks at The Wild Boar

Steeped in history and tradition The Wild Boar is a very unique Inn, set in the Lake District National Park, perfect for those seeking a Christmas experience as individual as you are.

The Wild Boar has a long earned reputation for classic British cuisine and the smokehouse, open kitchen and chef’s table add a little more theatre to the overall dining experience. A highly commended wine list, over 100 single malt whiskies and a range of home-brewed ales help complete the package to celebrate Christmas in an extraordinary traditional location.

Christmas Breaks

2018 Programme

Sunday 23rd December 2018

Arrival is from 3.00pm and, once you have settled into your room, we invite you to sample a glass of homemade mulled wine, meet our Manager Adam Bujok and his management team who will be hosting your festive celebrations and enjoy a sumptuous welcome buffet in our smokehouse restaurant. Following this, why not enjoy a drink in our Lounge by one of our open fires or enjoy a board game or giant ‘Jenga’ in our Undermillbeck room,

Tonight, our festive celebrations begin with brass band playing festive tunes together with cocktail reception, following which we will be serving a very special Cumbrian Tasting Menu, showcasing some of the very best ingredients from both our favourite Lakeland suppliers and our own on-site Wild Boar Smokehouse.

Christmas Eve

Monday 24th December 2018

This morning a hearty Lakeland breakfast awaits - the perfect way to begin your day!

Today we have arranged for our resident sharpshooter Mike to host a very special Wild Boar clay pigeon shooting morning. Alternatively, why not explore the village of Bowness-on-Windermere - an ideal opportunity for any last minute Christmas shopping.

This evening we will be serving a festive four course dinner, accompanied by a selection of chilled champagnes from our friends at Laurent Perrier – the perfect way to round off a memorable Christmas Eve and in anticipation of the big day tomorrow.

For those wishing to attend Midnight Mass we will be providing transport to Crook Village Church and there will of course be mince pies and mulled wine waiting upon your return.

Christmas Day

Tuesday 25th December 2018

A very special guest will be waiting to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and offer a chilled glass of something bubbly prior to a hearty Lakeland Grill.

You are then invited to join us on our annual walk around the Gilpin Valley taking in some of the stunning views of the local area and some fresh Lake District air!

Return for a piping hot glass of our homemade mulled wine and then join us for the main event of the day - our traditional Christmas Day lunch that our brigade of chefs have been busy preparing all morning.

This afternoon, guests have the opportunity to relax, enjoy some of the gifts that Father Christmas delivered and soak up the atmosphere that only Christmas at The Wild Boar can bring. No Christmas at ‘The Boar’ would be complete without our Gingerbread House Making Competition and this year is no exception – following 2017’s winning entry, the gauntlet has been well and truly thrown down and prizes await this year’s most creative creations!

Tonight begins with a delicious yuletide buffet, followed by our annual Dominoes competition for the more competitive guests, festive films and games in ‘Undermillbeck’ or perhaps just the option to sit back and relax in front of one of our roaring fires as Christmas Day 2018 draws to a close.

Boxing Day

Wednesday 26th December 2018

A hearty late breakfast is the perfect start to any day and, following this, we have arranged for a morning of archery in our woods - suitable for all whether you are a beginner or an expert!

This lunchtime we will be serving our popular and indulgent Wild Boar Afternoon Tea, followed by a selection of whiskies from our extensive list for you to try and compare, with tasting notes courtesy of George -  our very own ‘Master of Malt’.

Tonight, you are invited to join us for an evening of ‘Monte Carlo meets the Lake District’ with another delicious dinner followed by the return of our Wild Boar Casino night – whether it be blackjack, roulette or wheel of fortune, you will have the opportunity to chance your hand without compromising your wallet!

A nightcap by one of our roaring fires will round off what we are sure will be a most enjoyable and memorable Christmas celebration at The Wild Boar Inn.

Thursday 27th December 2018

The conclusion of our Christmas package is of course a traditional Cumbrian breakfast and a fond farewell with best wishes for the year ahead.
