Christmas and New Year in The Lakes

Enjoy our Christmas and New Year with every detail taken care of….

Christmas by the Lake

Lakeside Hotel & Spa is the perfect location for your Christmas celebration. Enjoy excellent food and luxuriously relaxing accommodation with roaring log fires and sparkling trees.

There’s no better place in The Lakes to share your Christmas with your friends, family or colleagues. Lakeside hosts many festive events throughout December and retains an elegant charm with traditional decorations adorning the hotel, wreaths swathed on the fireplace and exquisitely decorated trees dotted throughout.

Christmas and New Year is such a popular time of year here at Lakeside Hotel & Spa we always suggest that you book early to avoid disappointment.
We look forward to seeing you at the Lakeside for Christmas and New Year.

Festive Afternoon Teas, Lunch and Dinner

Well ‘it’s Christmas’ after all!

A popular choice and a great alternative to the traditional office party.

We offer a festive afternoon tea served in our Conservatory or Oak Room throughout November and December, ideal for small groups of friends and work colleagues.

Christmas Lunches
Served from 1st December

Throughout December we will be offering our popular traditional festive lunch menu for you to enjoy. So escape the office for a couple of hours to enjoy a fabulous festive lunch served by the water’s edge.

Festive Private Dining

The atmospheric Oak Room provides a cosy traditional venue suitable for 10 to 30 diners and opens up into the Conservatory providing an unrivalled backdrop of Lake Windermere.

The vibrant Spice Room offers a fun location for up to 10 guests. Alternatively choose to dine in the contemporary glassed Ruskin Brantwood Room for up to 20 guests.

Why not make your evening unique by adding pre-dinner Cocktail masterclass? or even add a Cheese table, where our chefs will create a feast for your senses and allow you to explore a selection of cheeses and expand your knowledge.

Christmas Party Nights

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas………..

Christmas Party Night

Friday 15th December
You’ve worked hard all year, it’s time to bring in the Christmas cheer with our brand new shared Christmas party night! The memorable night will include an arrival drink of fizz, 3 course choice menu and DJ to boogie the night away in our Windermere Suite.

Christmas Private Parties

The exclusive Windermere suite offers an exclusive venue for between 30-80 guests. Private bar with lounge area and our switchable glass screen which can create two distinct areas, giving the opportunity for a sanctuary away from a lively celebration.

The Windermere suite is ideal for an array of entertainment packages, whether this be a fun competitive casino night or a Christmas Party with a difference…
Maybe a roaring 1920s night with a casino? A winter wonderland evening with a DJ and dance floor? Or how about a masquerade ball with a Jazz Band? Or perhaps a murder mystery night with comedy waiters?

You can even help design your own menu alongside one of our experienced chef’s, whether this be a grazing buffet or a four course meal, we can be as flexible as you like.

Murder Mystery Events

Do you know someone who is an amateur sleuth?………..

After a year of hard work, it’s time to enjoy some festive fun. If you’re searching for a unique way to celebrate, why not challenge yourself with a murder mystery event?

Look no further than the Lakeside Hotel and Spa for an exciting evening of sleuthing.

Christmas Breaks

Looking to get away for a break over the festive period?

We offer a great Christmas festive staycation package beginning with your arrival on 23rd December for four nights.

Then over the festive period just relax and enjoy Christmas by letting us take care of everything until we wish you a safe journey home.

New Year’s Eve in The Lakes

New Year’s Eve is the culmination of the fantastic seasonal calendar.

Arrive at your leisure on 30th December and enjoy the celebrations over the next three nights.

Our gala dinner is served to the sounds of our live band as we celebrate into the New Year.

At midnight enjoy a glass of fizz to welcome in 2024, followed by a display of fireworks on the lake shore.

Treat the ones you love this Christmas

In an age where most of us have probably bought the latest designer clothes, the must have tech and kitchen gadgets for the perfect coffee, it seems to be getting harder and harder each year to find the perfect gift for your friends and family.

So why not give them the gift of time with loved ones and a shared experience through buying them a gift voucher that can be used at either the Lakeside or 11 sister hotels. From the Northumberland Coastline to the fells of Cumbria, the North Yorkshire Dales and Moors to The Cotswolds or further down into Buckinghamshire and West Sussex.
