It’s hard to believe that we’re already thinking about Christmas and New Year bookings at Winder Hall. We were sitting out on the terrace in gorgeous Lake District sunshine and talking about Festive Breaks! For someone like me who struggles to plan too far in advance I’m still in summer mode, but people are obviously thinking ahead as we’ve had several phone calls to book up for the Twixmas and New Year short breaks already! It’s exciting to be throwing the doors open for the first time in a few years to offer our “hidden gem” Country House Hotel near Cockermouth in the Lake District, Cumbria for a house party over Christmas.
I rather like the idea myself! I would not to have to think about the cooking AND not have to get up at silly o’clock to put the turkey in the oven, and actually get to talk to loved ones rather than peeling brussels! Well, I’ll have to leave it to others to enjoy our intimate and relaxing hospitality and I may well be the one gritting the drive, but perhaps with a medicinal mulled wine in hand!
I’m amazed at how much is going on in Cockermouth throughout the year, and particularly around Christmas and New Year. Indeed, this is true of the whole Lake District. Wonderful pantomimes, fabulous walking, fun charity events including the crazy Christmas Cracker race and various other hilarities! More than anything, there is some really amazing entertainment at Theatre by the Lake in Keswick! What a great venue for festive entertainment, and close to the doorstep of Winder Hall. We’re spoilt for choice! Anyone for the hot tub in the snow again this year?
