With its laid-back hospitality and the warmest of Northumbrian welcomes Eshott Hall is the perfect spot to gather friends andfamily for a relaxed Christmas and some seasonal indulgence.

Take the stress out of the festive season this year and book yourstay at Eshott Hall.

A Festive Escape


Settle into your room and unwind after your journey. Perhaps take a crisp walk around the estate using one of our guide maps, looking out for native red squirrels on the way, or cosy up in front of the fire with a cuppa.

A seasonal three course a la carte dinner will be served in the restaurant in the evening, followed by warming hot toddies or a mug of steaming cocoa in front of the fire before heading for bed.

Start Christmas Day with a leisurely Northumbrian breakfast and a glass of Bucks Fizz to get you in the festive mood. Spend the morning with your loved ones, relaxing and opening presents before the main event: a fabulous champagne reception and five course Christmas Day lunch with all the trimmings (12.15 pm arrival for a 1pm sit down). At 3pm the Queen’s Speech will be shown in the Library accompanied by coffee and homemade Christmas cake. Save some room for our festive buffet served in the restaurant in the evening before retiring to the bar or bed!

On Boxing Day enjoy a lazy late breakfast, served between 9am and 11am in the restaurant, before saying farewell to Eshott Hall. Our guests staying for an extra night might like to explore the local area and work up an appetite for some more seasonal indulgence on Boxing Day evening when our chefs will prepare another delicious menu.

A late, leisurely breakfast will be served on 27th December to set you up for your journey home.

What better way to step away from the stresses of the Christmas season than with a festive afternoon tea at Eshott Hall?

A quintessentially English affair, served in the drawing room in front of a roaring log fire with a fine selection of finger sandwiches (crusts off naturally), freshly baked sweet and savoury scones and homemade cakes and fancies. Choose from freshly brewed tea or coffee or splash out with a glass of bubbly. It’s an experience to savour; zone out and tuck in.
