A special Luxury Traditional British Christmas package in the beautiful Cheshire countryside with all the trimmings, entertainment, spa facilities and a sightseeing programme.

We have operated a Christmas holiday into Europe for many years and it is always heavily booked and proves popular with our customers.  However, we are aware that there are some of you who prefer not to travel abroad but would still like to get away over the festive period – be spoilt and let someone else do the washing up!  We understand that it has to be something really quite special to do justice to this magical time of year and so we have selected a special Luxury Christmas package in the Cheshire countryside. This is a traditional British Christmas with all the expected trimmings, plenty of entertainment, amazing Spa facilities and a programme of sightseeing to fully appreciate your beautiful surroundings.


Wednesday - Morning departure from Dorset we shall pause in Worcester for lunch. Continue to Carden Park in Cheshire where you are warmly welcomed with refreshments and porterage on arrival. After settling in enjoy a delicious dinner in the restaurant, followed by entertainment.

Thursday - (Christmas Eve) Drive across the Cheshire countryside to Dunham Massey, a National Trust property set around a Georgian mansion house. The gardens are open and said to be one of the finest winter gardens in the UK. A walk through the wider park will reveal architectural oddities, views of the house, groves of ancient trees and Dunham's residential herd of fallow deer. There is a restaurant for lunch. Return to the hotel this afternoon and after dinner enjoy the entertainment.

Friday - (Christmas Day) Merry Christmas! After breakfast you can open your presents, or maybe enjoy a stroll through the landscaped grounds which will hone your appetite for the banquet to come. A traditional Christmas Lunch is served with all the trimmings and entertainment to accompany. At 3pm watch the Queen's speech, maybe enjoy a dip in the pool, relax in the sauna or work off some of the calories in the gym. A supper will be served this evening.

Saturday - (Boxing Day) After a leisurely breakfast we shall enjoy a scenic drive of the Welsh Borderlands via Llangollen and the Horseshoe Pass to arrive in the city of Chester. This afternoon take your seats at the Storyhouse Theatre for a magical matinee performance of its annual Pantomime - a traditional story with dazzling costumes, stunning sets and audience participation aplenty - Oh yes it is! Return to hotel for a final Evening Dinner followed by more entertainment. Quieter corners are available if you prefer.

Sunday - Following breakfast we make our farewells and shall visit Cheltenham, Britain's most complete Regency town and The Cotswolds cultural capital. Time for lunch then leave at 3:00pm to make the drive back to Dorset, arriving late that afternoon.
