Tucked away on the beautiful Suffolk coast, just 6 minutes’ drive from the charming seaside town of Aldeburgh, Glencairn Stuart Ogilvie’s fairytale holiday village conjures up the spirit of Merrie England. Cue an 18-hole championship golf course, a beautiful boating lake, complete with Peter Pan islands, a 70ft fairytale cottage on stilts, tennis courts, a green, a pub and a village store.

Christmas Eve+


Arrive in the afternoon to our festively dressed hotel, check in
and relax either in your room or explore our bar, lounge or snooker area. As the sun goes down over the picture-perfect heather and gorse view, the team will be setting up a festive afternoon tea that you can enjoy by our fire where our local 5 piece brass band will lead us in a merry sing-song. Wander through to the restaurant to enjoy a sumptuous Christmas Eve dinner between 7pm – 9pm. After dinner there will be an organised quiz held in our bar area, so come and join in with a bit
of festive merriment. Wrap up in your woollies and meet in the lounge at 11:30pm for a hot chocolate to warm you up before we transport you to
Aldeburgh for traditional midnight mass (optional).
