"Absolutely fantastic few nights in the Lake District at the Wild Boar. Great Staff lead by Adam. Fantastic Entertainment. Great atmosphere. Loved everything from the casino to the clay pigeon shooting, from the champagne tasting to the New Years Eve Celebration with an excellent DJ."
Saturday 30th December 2023
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 Afternoon Tea and a piping hot 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 brewery!
Following this, 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
Sunday 31st December
A hearty late breakfast is the perfect start to the last day of 2023 and 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 in our woods. Shooting will be suitable for all, whether you are a beginner or an expert and with the help of our resident sharp shooter Mike, everyone should hit at least one clay.
Following a light lunch in anticipation of the festivities ahead, join us in our Restaurant for the return of our popular Champagne tasting courtesy of our friends at Laurent Perrier – the perfect way to spend an afternoon and perhaps decide which bottle of bubbly you might like to help welcome in 2024 later this evening!
Tonight’s celebrations begin with a champagne and canapé reception followed by traditional black tie seven course gala dinner prepared by our brigade of chefs who will have been working throughout the day to ensure your last meal of 2023 is one to remember!
Our resident DJ will then get the party in full swing, count down the last moments of 2023 and welcome 2024 in style to chimes of Big Ben and the sound of popping corks and Auld Lang Syne!
New Year’s Day
January 1st 2024
