Christmas Festivities at Middlethorpe Hall
Join us for a three-day Christmas break in the historic setting of this elegant ‘William & Mary’ country house with its open fireplaces, and carolers to entertain.
On Christmas Eve, arrive for afternoon tea delicacies from 3.30pm onwards in the Drawing Room, and in the evening join us at 7.30pm for a Champagne and Canapés reception with carols sung by the local choir. A splendid three-course dinner will then be served in the Pineapple and Oak Rooms from 8.15pm. You may wish to attend Midnight Mass in St Andrew’s Parish Church or at the glorious York Minster. You will be welcomed with a glass of port and mince pies upon your return.
On Christmas Day, start the day with full Yorkshire breakfast served in the dining rooms. Join us for a Bucks Fizz reception, followed by our traditional four-course luncheon from 12.30pm. The Queen’s Speech will be shown in the Drawing Room, with a service of tea, coffee and mince pies. In the evening, sample the delights of our light buffet supper from 7.30pm.
St Stephen’s Day (Boxing Day), start the day with full Yorkshire breakfast served in the dining rooms. The day will be more leisurely with many options for you to enjoy, such as relaxation and pampering in the Middlethorpe Spa, pantomime at the York Theatre Royal, a drive out to the Yorkshire Dales or an exciting day of horse racing at Wetherby. We will meet again in the evening at 7pm for a glass of Champagne, followed by a black-tie four-course gala dinner accompanied by jazz tunes on the piano, and later a fun casino evening.
A complimentary bottle of house Champagne will be placed in the room of any guests staying 4 nights or more.
