Festive Celebrations

There are so many reasons to celebrate this Christmas with your favourite people – and even more ways to mark the occasion when visiting our enchanting hotels and resorts.

Experience the magic of the festive season, as you settle in for minced pies and a warming drink by the fire together upon arrival for your festive getaway. Explore wintry rural and city settings and return to spectacular Christmas Eve and Boxing Day feasts - with Santa himself never too far away.

Get into the spirit of the season with friends and colleagues at our glittering party nights, savour decadent afternoon teas with a festive twist and toast to you and yours as part of New Year's Eve & Hogmanay evenings.  

However you wish to celebrate, let us help you capture the spirit of Christmas and make this year’s festivities truly memorable.
