A luxury Christmas holiday based in the beautiful Shropshire countryside with all the traditional trimmings, entertainment, spa facilities and programme of sightseeing.

We understand that a Christmas holiday has to be something a bit special to do justice to this magical time of year – not just a chance to be spoilt and let someone else do the washing up.  We have selected this luxury Christmas package based in the beautiful Shropshire countryside. This is a traditional British Christmas with all the expect trimmings, entertainment, amazing spa facilities and a programme of sightseeing to fully appreciate your surroundings. Tucked away between the English and Welsh borders the region is a sheer delight, unspoilt, undeveloped and retaining an air of “yester-year”.


Friday - Morning departure from Dorset across the Severn Bridge and through the picturesque Wye Valley to Hereford for lunch. Continue to Telford where you are warmly welcomed with tea and mince pies while to bags are portered. Enjoy a superb 3 course dinner this evening.

Saturday - (Christmas Eve) A leisurely breakfast with time to maybe enjoy the hotel leisure facilities. At midday drive in to Telford centre and take your seats at The Place Theatre for a 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 3 course dinner followed by fun in the games room. Our coach can convey you to a local church for mid-night mass if required - mince pies and milled wine will be waiting on return.

Sunday - (Christmas Day) Merry Christmas! After breakfast you can open your presents and enjoy a stroll around the grounds which will hone your appetite for the banquet to come. A traditional Christmas lunch is served with a visit from Santa. At 3pm watch the Queens speech with tea and Christmas cake. A lighter buffet supper is provided this evening - Phew!

Monday - (Boxing Day) We visit Blists Hill Victorian Town in the picturesque Ironbridge Gorge. A recreation of a late 19th century town - traditional shops, cosy cottages, workshops and tradespeople in period costumes all themed for Christmas. Later we shall enjoy a scenic drive alongside Wenlock Edge to Church Stretton, sometimes called "Little Switzerland". A short stop in the pretty town of Ludlow, still set around its medieval street plan - an official "slow town" that avoids the hustle of modern life. Back at the hotel this evening enjoy a carvery dinner followed by some entertainment.

Tuesday - After breakfast we bid our farewells and shall head homewards with a stop in the beautiful cathedral city of Worcester. Return to Dorset by early evening.
