New Year Breaks at The Wild Boar

Check availability

Steeped in history and tradition, Wild Boar Estate is a special venue set in the Lake District National Park. It’s perfect for those seeking a New Year experience as individual as you are.

"Great venue and great food, thoroughly entertaining stay, you don’t need to leave the place for your entire stay. Been 3 years running now and see some familiar faces year after year, so you always feel part of a bigger party even if just staying as a couple."
Neil M via TripAdvisor (2nd January 2024)

"Wild" New Year 2024/25

Wild Boar Estate has a long-earned reputation for classic British cuisine. The smokehouse, open kitchen and chef’s table add a little more theatre to the overall dining experience.

With a highly commended wine list, over 100 single malt whiskies and a range of home-brewed ales, plus a host of woodland activities, it’s the ultimate package to celebrate New Year in an extraordinary location. It’s the perfect venue for creating amazing, unforgettable and wild experiences.


Monday 30th December 2024

Your room will be ready from 3pm and, once settled in, our management team welcome you to our New Year celebrations with our famous Wild Boar Festive Alternative Afternoon Tea and a warming glass of mulled wine.

Tonight, we will be serving a very special Cumbrian Festive Hog Roast and Ale buffet, showcasing some of the very best ingredients from both our favourite Lakeland suppliers and our own on-site Wild Boar Smokehouse and microbrewery.

We then give you the chance to become a Wild Boar ‘Highflyer’ as we host our annual Casino Night. We’ll even provide you with a generous amount of Wild Boar currency to begin a night of blackjack and roulette with prizes awarded for the highest earners!


New Year’s Eve

Tuesday 31st December 2024

A hearty late breakfast is the perfect start to the last day of 2024. Following this, we have arranged for a morning of clay pigeon shooting, together with our resident Harris Hawks from our friends at Lake District Falconry, all set within the scenery of our 72 acres of woodlands. Shooting is suitable for all, whether you are a beginner or an expert, you’ll have the guidance of our resident sharp shooter.

Following a light lunch in anticipation of the festivities ahead, join us in the restaurant for the return of our popular Champagne tasting, courtesy of our friends at Laurent Perrier. It’s the perfect way to spend an afternoon and perhaps decide which bottle of bubbly you might like to help welcome in 2024 later in the evening!

New Year’s Eve celebrations begin with a Champagne and canapé reception, followed by a traditional black-tie 7 course gala dinner, lovingly prepared by our brigade of chefs who have been working throughout the day to ensure your last meal of 2024 is one to remember!

Our resident DJ will then get the party in full swing. Count down the last moments of 2024 and welcome 2025 in style to chimes of Big Ben and the sound of popping corks and Auld Lang Syne!


New Year’s Day

January 1st 2025

Enjoy a traditional Lakeland breakfast before we reluctantly bid you a fond farewell and send you on your way with our very best wishes for the year ahead.

For those guests who would prefer to stay an extra night and try our Clay pigeon shooting, we have arranged special rates for accommodation and shooting packages to keep the festive spirits flowing (shooting is suitable for all whether you are a beginner or an expert and with the help of our resident sharp shooter).
