Christmas at Great Fosters

Where we ask you could be lovelier, or more charming, or even more perfect for the best Christmas holiday than Great Fosters? The original destination for laughter & good humour, (which we say with some authority as a 16th Century mansion) you can be assured of the most marvellous holiday with your loved ones.

Our Christmas Holiday package from the 24th to the 27th of December is positively packed with all the essential ingredients (and a few more exotic ones too!) for a sensational seasonal stay. And let us not forget the balls, the parties and the splendour of December. From the cosiness of the exquisite Anne Boleyn drawing room, to the magnificence of the ancient Tithe Barn, there are umpteen historic, charming and luxurious spaces to choose from for your festive celebrations, and gatherings of friends and family.

Our Christmas Package

Great Fosters is aglow during the holidays, dressed top to toe in seasonal splendour with every detail thought of. Our Christmas Package is the crowning glory of the season, with guests arriving for two or three nights from Tuesday, 24th December, ready for a most luxurious Christmas. Great Fosters will become your home for Christmas - what could be more indulgent and special?

What an exceptional experience!

Over the years I've been fortunate to stay in some lovely hotels, in very many countries, so can honestly say it is rare to find such universally excellent service from senior management down - Great Fosters has a great team. The hotel looked gorgeous decked out for Christmas, the grounds were stunning and the special little touches and treats, made the experience even better than we had hoped. Sarah

Perfect Retreat to finish my stay in the UK

Surroundings exquisite, especially with all the Christmas decorations. My room was charming a& bed very comfortable. Staff welcoming, attentive and accommodating. Could not wish for more. Highly recommend the hotel & their afternoon tea. Sally Lumber
