Littlecote House Hotel Grounds Festive

Walking in a winter Warnerland…

The festive season is nearly upon us, and with presents to buy, people to see, and dinners to be prepared, the top of most people’s Christmas lists is to relax, unwind, and enjoy the season.

To help escape the stress of the festive season, Warner Hotels is offering a selection of indulgent Christmas breaks that yule be sorry to miss. Roaring fires, carolling, and mince pies (lots of them!) await visitors to the 15 luxury castles, manor houses and seaside getaways to choose from across the UK.

Christmas doesn’t get any merrier than a Martinis & Mistletoe break. Enjoy lashings of festive food, cocktail making sessions and choir workshops, followed by dancing the night away to seasonal party favourites. New for 2023, arts and crafts sessions will teach guests to make a sustainable Christmas wreath, complete with dried foliage and flowers.

A string quartet playing classics by candlelight adds a sprinkle of Christmas magic while you settle into cosy, intimate surroundings. Add a touch of romance to your stay with lantern-lit walks around the gardens before heading back to snuggle on your terrace beside the fire.

If ticking off Christmas traditions is top of your list, the Turkey & Tinsel break is for you! Expect the merriment of Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Eve all rolled into one. With mince pies on arrival and dinners with all the trimmings, this is a foodie’s dream. Add in a selection of themed quizzes, carolling, crackers, and a Robin Hood panto it’s all the excitement of the big day itself without you having to do any of the preparation.

The festive season isn’t complete without the charm of a Christmas market, so while on your break you will be able to join a coach trip to explore the nearest bustling market where you can peruse homemade gifts at a leisurely pace or take in the atmosphere whilst enjoying a glass of mulled wine.

Sometimes, all you need is downtime to destress ahead of the busy festive season – and this looks different for everyone. With spa access included in the price of your break you can go for a dip in the pool, a soak in a hot tub, or enjoy crisp winter walks in gorgeous gardens and surrounding areas.

By night, relish in a lavish three-course meal before you party the night away, with bands, DJs, and live shows keeping the festivities rolling late into the evening.

Simon Thompson, managing director of Warner Hotels, said: “Every year it’s easy to get tied up in the stress of the busy festive period, and forget to take in all the little things that make it so magical. To help, we have curated our festive breaks to allow guests to take a step back and be waited on hand and foot, giving them the time back to take in all the moments and traditions that make it the most wonderful time of the year.

“Christmas getaways always book up fast, so we encourage those who want to indulge in being stress-free this festive season to take a look at what’s on offer now.”
