Christmas Eve

Arrival from midday: Open the door to your very own Christmas haven and you’ll discover your very own twinkling Christmas tree waiting for you. Once settled in your room there will be a knock at the door with a welcoming glass of warmed spiced mulled wine and home-baked mince pies or some of our home-made mini gingerbread men for the kids to enjoy.

Take a moment to have a wonder around the hotel and grounds and be sure to peek inside your personalised hidey-hole for small surprises located in the Grand Hall. Remember… keep checking throughout your stay as you never know what delights might suddenly appear there!

From 7.00pm: Take your seats for a three course welcome dinner in the Camellia restaurant or Mediterranean influenced Botanica restaurant, whilst a local choir create a splendidly seasonal atmosphere. Wine selected by our Sommelier will be served with your meal.

Christmas Day

For the early risers, start your morning off with a delicious full English breakfast in Camellia, or for those who like to spend an extra hour or two in bed, we have a delicious brunch menu for you in Botanica.

After breakfast there’s plenty of time for you to relax with the whole family before the main event begins!

From 12.30pm follow the incredible smell of Christmas lunch to the South
Downs Suite or Camellia restaurant for a traditional Christmas lunch with all the trimmings.

Once bellies are full spend the rest of the afternoon enjoying some fresh air, curling up on the sofa with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate, or watching the Queen’s speech at 3pm.

From 7pm take part in some friendly competition with a variety of board games to choose from, or get your quiz heads on and show off your skills in our Christmas quiz. If you’re feeling peckish an evening meal will be served for you to have as much or as little as you like.

 

Boxing Day

After breakfast get out into the fresh air and enjoy a spot of clay-pigeon shooting and archery lessons*, take a ride on our hotel bicycles, take a stroll around the grounds, visit Leonardslee Gardens just across the road from us* or spend some quiet time by the spa’s infinity pool and treat yourself to a treatment.

From 12pm - Head over to the Botanica restaurant, situated in the spa for a light Mediterranean styled lunch, overlooking the breathtaking views of the South Downs.

From 7pm - Take your seats for a three course dinner in the Camellia restaurant or South Downs suite whilst enjoying background live music as your toast your time with us. Wine selected by our Sommelier will be served with your meal.
