AWAY FROM IT ALL
Welcome to Winterfell; a majestic, fairytale home in the Lakes, surrounded by walled gardens and four acres of private meadows.
Get toasty at Seaham Hall’s pop-up après-ski bar. A snug alpine hideout where you can curl up with rum butter punch and gingerbread martinis under cosy throws and twinkly lights. A nice one for Christmas Eve.
Join Poetic License mixologists and co for cracking cocktails, live soul and Motown tunes and a three-course meal at The Roker Hotel, Sunderland. Because what’s toasting to January without gin?
WITH THE KIDS
Take them on a magic carpet ride to panto land at Middlesbrough Theatre between Christmas and New Year. Follow Aladdin’s adventures on a bid to save Jasmine, helped by Widow Twanky and co.
A trip to National Railway Museum Shildon’s End of Year Toy Fair means they can get their hands on cool collectables and swap fun finds. A great way for them to spend any Christmas money.
For all you Lakes lovers out there, why not make Boxing Day extra special with a three-course lunch at the Lakes Distillery. Finish off with a few tipples and a leisurely stroll.
Add some French fancy to your New Year’s Eve at The Vermont Hotel. Enjoy a lavish, four-course Parisian dinner, paired with fine wine and soothing entertainment. Have a chilled one.
