A-Z of Christmas at The Daffodil

30th September 2016

At the Daffodil we’re getting ready for the festive season ahead. You can expect breathtaking landscapes and luxury surroundings but we have plenty of other treats in store for guests this festive season…

A is for Appetite                                   

Whether you dream of a full Christmas dinner with all the trimmings, a luxury festive buffet or perhaps festive Afternoon Tea? Our executive chef Graham Harrower has designed a Festive Fare Menu to temp and delight, offering a unique mix of comfort food with a fine dining twist.

B is for Beautiful location

Spend Christmas day by the shores of Grasmere, go for a stroll by the lake admiring the breath-taking views or cozy up with a Christmas coffee (or cocktail) in our Lake View lounge.

C is for Cocktails

Try one of our festive inspired cocktails/mocktails such as the Christmas Cosmo or Amaretto Fizz to really get you in the festive mood.

D is for DJs

Dance the night away with friends, family or colleagues to all your favourite tunes at our Christmas party night and let our live band and resident DJ provide the perfect vibe.

E is for Elegance

From the stylish designer carpets to the refined decor using rich woods and polished stone, elegance is the word that best sums up The Daffodil Hotel & Spa.

F is for Fireworks

To see the New Year in with a bang, enjoy a fantastic firework display over the lake a midnight.

G is for Germaine De Capuccini

Germaine De Capuccini has developed some of the worlds most talked about formulations and ground breaking advances in skincare. The successful combination of natural active ingredients with cutting edge technology has enabled the company to develop some of the most influential skincare products and professional spa therapies the beauty industry has ever seen.

H is for His & Hers

Our Mud Rasul therapy is perfect for couples. It allows the bathers to apply natural mineral mud product to the face and body, before the room lighting is gently dimmed and relaxing fibre optic lighting fills the ceiling. The bathers sit in the enfolding warmth of heated individual seats, before steam is introduced into the Rasul. Warmth of the steam opens the pores and allows the enriched products to enter the body, where it stimulates the blood flow, helps revive the tissue and stimulates the lymphatic system. After approximately 20 minutes the treatment is brought to an end when a warm shower mist descends from the ceiling to gently wash away the remaining product.

I is for Indulge

At New Year, indulge in pre-party pampering in our Spa followed by welcome drinks and canapes to start the night right.

J is for Join the Party

Switch up the 9-5 this December. Exclusive party nights available for family, friends and colleagues. Come and join the party here on the shores of Grasmere!

K is for Kiss under the Mistletoe

Christmas is an exciting time at the Daffodil with many choosing to propose to their loved one! If you’re planning on popping the question during your stay, let our team know, we can help you with anything from champagne to fireworks.

L is for Live Singer

A party wouldn’t be a party without a live singer to get it started. Whether you’re first on the dancefloor or relaxing at the bar with one of our cocktails, there’s sure to be something for everyone.

M is for Markets

Take time out this Christmas to discover an array of Christmas Markets in and around Cumbria. From roasted chestnuts and mulled wine to ice-skating and Santa’s grotto.

O is for OPI

P is for Private Dining
