Escape this Christmas to the Scottish Riviera, and cherish a little time away with like-minded people. On this festive getaway we include a full Christmas package with nightly entertainment, exclusive spa access at the hotel and free time in Carlisle, Lancaster and Ayr.


Day 1 – On the way to the hotel we visit Lancaster. Located on the banks of the River Lune, during your free time perhaps enjoy a refreshing walk along Lancaster’s lock-free canal or why not stop by J.Atkinson & Co Coffee Roasters, established in 1837, it claims to be the city’s oldest business. After some free time we continue to the hotel.

Day 2 – This morning our experienced driver will take you on a scenic drive through Galloway Forest Park – so, sit back, relax and enjoy the simply stunning views of Britain’s largest forest park. Our journey will end in Ayr, a charming seaside resort in South Ayrshire where you can enjoy a little free time.

Day 3 – Spend Christmas Day in the warmth and comfort of the hotel amongst friends. After a leisurely breakfast perhaps take some time out to enjoy the hotel’s leisure facilities, which include; a heated indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna. Later a traditional Christmas lunch is served before a delicious buffet dinner.
Day 4 – After breakfast we visit Carlisle, precariously perched on the frontier between England and Scotland it’s bursting with history and heritage just waiting to be unwrapped. This afternoon we have included entry to the local pantomime (Oh yes we have!)
Day 5 – After a ‘guid Yule’ (or good Christmas to you and I) today we return home.
