Christmas Eve

Upon arrival at the Kings Arms Hotel, be greeted by the delightful aroma of mulled wine and the tempting offer of a delicious cream tea awaiting you in the restaurant. Later, immerse yourself in the festive atmosphere created by local carol singers outside the hotel, setting the stage for a cheerful Christmas in the scenic Lake District.

In the evening, we invite you to join us for a pre-dinner glass of sparkling wine and canapés reception, where our General Manager and his team will warmly welcome you and share insights into the upcoming events and entertainment. Following this, indulge in a sumptuous four-course celebratory welcome dinner crafted by our skilled Head Chef and team, with tea and coffee to follow.

After dinner, embark on a enchanting candle-lit stroll to Derwentwater lake, clutching a glass of Baileys hot chocolate in one hand and a sparkler in the other, as you soak in the tranquility of the lake and surrounding mountains under the night sky (warm boots and jackets recommended). Upon returning to the hotel, unwind with a nightcap in the bar while enjoying live music performed by our talented acoustic singer.

Christmas Day

As Christmas morning unfolds, your day commences with a traditional and hearty Cumbrian breakfast, enhanced with a refreshing glass of Bucks Fizz! Take the day at your own leisure, whether you opt to relax within the comfort of the hotel, or get out and about and participate in our fun Christmas treasure hunt around Keswick – whoever completes it fastest will win a prize!

Once the invigorating Lakeland air has whetted your appetite, prepare to indulge in a five-course Christmas Day lunch, followed by tea, coffee and mince pies.

As the evening unfolds, our hospitable bar remains open for drinks while a tempting light buffet awaits in the restaurant, which you can enjoy at your leisure. To cap off the day’s festivities, we’ve arranged an amusing Christmas quiz and a “guess the weight of the Christmas cake” competition each with the chance to win a prize. It promises to be a lively and enjoyable evening for all.

Boxing Day

Indulge in a wholesome Cumbrian breakfast complemented by a delightful sparkling cocktail to kickstart your day. Following this, seize the opportunity to unwind or explore the enticing Boxing Day sales in Keswick’s charming array of shops!

Later in the day, bundle up and embark on a picturesque guided walk in the company of our sister hotels. Along the way, pause at a scenic beauty spot where a delectable assortment of warm savoury and sweet pastries await. Depending on your agenda, opt for a leisurely stroll or a brisk hike back to the hotel. Appropriate walking gear and equipment is recommended. Alternatively, if indoor pursuits beckon, our hotel will offer a selection of board games for your enjoyment.

As evening approaches, relish in a sumptuous four-course farewell dinner, followed by the option to mingle with fellow guests and locals over drinks in the cozy confines of the bar.
