Six Great New Year Breaks
Getting away from it all at the end of the year, and staying in a new beautiful holiday location is a great way to celebrate. There are some wonderful locations ideal for New Year breaks throughout the UK, but few can match the beauty of the Lake District in Cumbria. Here are six packages that will ensure your New Year getaway is one to remember:
Low Wood Bay. This resort hotel makes any occasion a special one, with its superb facilities and perfect location in the very heart of the Lake District on the shore of Lake Windermere – giving you amazing views of the lake to Langdale Pikes from your room, and fast access to all the attractions of the region.
The Waterhead. For all the comforts and convenience of a town setting, yet not far from the natural beauty of the Lakes, this four star Town House Hotel, on the outskirts of the Georgian town of Ambleside, is both peaceful and sophisticated. The hotel combines old-style ambience with the most modern conveniences, plus great views of Lake Windermere.
The Wild Boar. An evocative woodland retreat, this former coaching inn offers justly celebrated cuisine. Once you've enjoyed the delicious food and sampled some of the 50 single malt whiskies and traditional ales on offer, venture into the 72-acre woods for the historic Wild Boar Woodland Trail. On New Year's Eve itself, enjoy an afternoon champagne tasting, followed by a seven-course black tie gala dinner, complete with a cool DJ.
Storrs Hall. Soak up the Romantic atmosphere of this sumptuous Georgian Mansion, either by cosying up in front of its huge log fireplaces or by taking a stroll in its 17 acres of landscaped grounds and woodland on the shores of Lake Windermere. Afterwards, retire to your lordly room, with its canopy four-poster bed and genuine antiques. On NYE, start the celebrations with champagne and canapés before the gala dinner, entertained by the Lakes Handbell Ringers and local DJs.
Lancaster House. Just outside the historic city of Lancaster, this four-star country house hotel is both elegant and relaxing. Sample its award-winning restaurant and relax in the Leisure Club and Beauty Salon, before joining the New Year House Party, with great entertainment, from a Grand Night at the Races to the Blues Brothers.
The Midland. This 1930s hotel was built on the famous Morecambe promenade, and soon became a favourite retreat for celebrities of the time, such as Coco Chanel, Wallis Simpson and Lawrence Olivier. Rooms overlook, Morecambe Bay's beautiful coastline and beyond, to the Lake District.
The holidays are just round the corner, so get planning right now!
