Arrive in the afternoon and immediately feel the warm and welcoming embrace of our hunting lodge inspired hotel, decorated with fresh fern, pine, heather and tweeds for a convivial hot mulled wine or fruity local apple cider. As the sun goes down over the picture perfect heather and gorse view, the Thorpeness team invite you to join us in the lounge and relax with a festive afternoon tea by the hearthside of the warming log fire, where our local carol singers will lead us in a merry sing song.

Wander through to the restaurant to enjoy a sumptuous Christmas Eve dinner between 7pm - 9pm (please choose your time on arrival).

Wrap up in your woollies, sweaters and tweeds and meet in the lounge at 11:30pm for a hot chocolate to warm you up before we transport you to Aldeburgh for magical midnight mass.


*Only available on our 3 day break.


Wake up rested and refreshed to a gift from Father Christmas outside your room. Before the day gets into full swing, enjoy a leisurely breakfast accompanied by Bucks Fizz and a round of golf, or one of our invigorating coastal walks – complete with complimentary map and hot drink with our complements.

You’ll be sure to work up an appetite and when you arrive back for 1pm, we’ll all gather together in the restaurant for a magnificent Christmas feast.

After lunch get ready for time honoured traditional board games in the lounge – a favourite festive custom for all the family, wee and auld!

Later in the afternoon, its movie time in the Lakeside Suite. Relax and watch Downton Abbey while you’re served warm roasted nuts and drinks from the bar by your very own usher.
