A special Luxury Traditional British Christmas package in the beautiful Warwickshire 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 Warwickshire countryside. This is a traditional British Christmas with all the expected trimmings, entertainment, amazing Spa facilities and a programme of sightseeing to fully appreciate your beautiful surroundings.


Thursday - Morning departure from Dorset we shall pause in the pretty Cotswold village of Bourton-on-the-Water for lunch. Continue to Chesford Grange where you are warmly welcomed with tea, mince pies and porterage on arrival. After settling in enjoy a delicious 3 course dinner in the restaurant.

Friday - (Christmas Eve) Discover Stratford on Avon - An ancient market town that still retains many sights that would have been familiar to Shakespeare himself. From his birthplace and Anne Hathaway's cottage, an award winning Town Trail that explores quaint side streets, a Butterfly Farm, the Museum of Witchcraft and beautiful riverside gardens. Steeped in history with many half-timbered buildings dating from medieval times the busy high street offers unique and usual shops and galleries to explore. Back at the hotel this evening a 3 course dinner is followed by fun in the games room. Our coach will be available to take those who wish to attend midnight mass in a local church - on return there will be mulled wine & mince pies waiting for you.

Saturday - (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 a visit from Santa! At 3pm watch the Queen's speech accompanied by Christmas cake. Maybe enjoy a dip in the pool, relax in the sauna or work off some of the calories in the gym. A buffet supper will be served this evening.

Sunday - (Boxing Day) A leisurely breakfast with time to enjoy more of the hotels facilities and its grounds. This afternoon take your seats at the Priory Theatre in Kenilworth 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 Carvery style Dinner followed by entertainment. Quieter corners are available if you prefer.

Monday - Following breakfast we make our farewells and shall visit pretty Tewkesbury with time for sightseeing and lunch. Leave at 2:30pm to make the drive back to Dorset, arriving late that afternoon.
