Christmas Break

The perfect three night Christmas break

24th - 27th DECEMBER

from £450 per person

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.

Full bed and board Christmas break. Full details outlined in the package breakdown below, with unlimited golf and optional entry to our Boxing Day Golf Competition with prizes.



Arrive in the afternoon to our festively dressed hotel, check in and relax either in your room or explore our bar, lounge, snooker room or Jiggers miniature golf. 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 a brass band will lead us in a merry sing-song. Wander through to Ogilvie's restaurant to enjoy a sumptuous Christmas Eve dinner between 7pm - 8:30pm. After dinner there will be an organised quiz held in our Braids bar, so come and join in with a bit of festive merriment. Wrap up in your woollies and meet in the lounge at 10:45pm before we transport you to Aldeburgh for traditional midnight mass (optional). On your return enjoy a hot chocolate to warm up before retiring for the night.


Wake up rested and refreshed. Before the day gets into full swing, enjoy a leisurely breakfast accompanied by a glass of Bucks Fizz. Whether it’s a round of golf you desire or perhaps an invigorating walk around the enchanting Thorpeness and Aldeburgh coastline, we will be awaiting your return as a magnificent Christmas feast will be served at 1pm. After lunch get ready for time honoured traditional board games in the lounge.  The time is your own, so please feel free to relax in your room or enjoy a drink by the fireside. Our team of chefs will be preparing a mouth-watering hot and cold buffet that will be served in Braid's patio bar from 7pm.


Today would not be complete without our annual Boxing Day Santa’s Cup Golf competition or if you are feeling invigorated from all the festivities you may consider heading off to Aldeburgh and join in with the annual swim in the sea! Alternatively perhaps just simply enjoy a leisurely wander around the picturesque Thorpeness before heading back for chef’s homemade soup and sandwiches to warm you up. In the evening we invite you to enjoy a wonderful three-course meal in Ogilvie’s from 7pm. 



Enter in teams of 4 or let us team you up with other guests. Once you have booked your break and have decided you would like to play in this competition, forward your handicap and playing requirements (i.e. in a team or need a team), and your preferred starting time between 9.30 - 10.30am, together with any buggy/trolley bookings.

Thorpeness Golf Club & Hotel's Christmas break is only available to be booked by phone, please contact our reservation team on 01728 452176
