Christmas Eve - Tuesday 24th December
Arrive on Christmas Eve and enjoy mulled wine and warm mince pies delivered to your bedroom. Why not finish the afternoon with a relaxing stroll around the gardens or in front of one of the many roaring open fires? From 6pm you are invited to join our local choristers around the Christmas tree reciting those favourite festive carols followed by the general manager’s Champagne and canapés reception, an opportunity to meet fellow guests and the management team. Our award-winning chef has created a five-course gourmet meal for your enjoyment. After dinner why not relax by the fire with a wee dram or enjoy some traditional board games with fellow guests? For those who wish to attend, midnight mass will be celebrated at the 700 year-old parish church of Buxted, located within the estate. Return to the hotel for a hot beverage or night cap in our late residents bar.

Our Christmas fayre buffet is the perfect way to celebrate on Christmas Day evening.
