From the glistening gold wreath above our blazing log burner to the cosy hot water bottle in your room, you can be sure that Christmas with us is like home, but better. While you snuggle in and make yourself comfortable, we’ll be busy creating lip-smackingly tasty drinks, cakes and feasts for you to enjoy with family and friends... after all, isn’t that what Christmas is all about?
Join us whenever suits you and take your time to settle in and explore before tucking into a festive afternoon tea in one of our sumptuous lounges. If you’ve time before dinner, why not try out our health club, take a stroll or treat yourself to a spa treatment?
Begin your evening by joining fellow guests for drinks and canapés, before enjoying a seasonal three course meal in our restaurant.
If you’re still not in the festive spirit, you definitely will be after a magical ‘Midnight’ Mass at Tewkesbury Abbey – don’t be fooled by the name though, Mass starts at 11.30pm.
What better way to start the big day than with a bountiful breakfast complete with all the trimmings and topped off with a glass of festive fizz? Presents pre- or post-lunch? It’s up to you, and whenever you choose we’ve got the perfect setting around the glittering tree in our lounge. Enjoy a glass of Champagne before tucking into a traditional festive four-course lunch in our restaurant. Fancy a snooze in front of the fire? We’ve got just the spot for you.
If you love the best of British, we’ll be showing the Queen’s Speech, just right to enjoy with a generous slice of Christmas cake... homemade, of course. If you’ve any room left, we’ll be serving a relaxed evening buffet with an array of local produce for you to savour.
An easy laid-back morning with an extended brunch before you decide how to spend your day. Fancy a bracing walk on the nearby Malvern Hills, a bargain hunting trip to regency Cheltenham or just a float around in our pool? – the choice is yours.
Join us in the evening for a gala dinner complete with entertainment to get you off your seat and on the dance floor... if you like.
Time to say goodbye... but squeeze in breakfast before you leave.
