WHETHER it’s a luxury Christmas break in the North East, dining with friends and family or party nights and New Year celebrations, Rockliffe Hall’s world-class facilities will really get you in the festive mood: an one-stop-shop for extravagance and indulgence.

Here are some of the highlights, our 12 treats of Christmas…

1. Kenny Cooks Christmas
Let top chefs do the hard work this Christmas! Rockliffe Hall’s celebrated chef, Kenny Atkinson, will be at the helm on Christmas Day where you can celebrate in style whether you’re dining in The Orangery, the Brasserie or The Clubhouse.

And in the run up to Christmas, there’s the chance to try an exclusive seven course prestige festive tasting menu, cooked by Kenny himself.

2. Stay the night…or maybe more….
This Christmas, indulge in the delights of two or three-night full-board residential Christmas Breaks, complete with an entertainment programme for all the family and a very special visit on the big day itself…….

Or how about celebrating Christmas in your own four-bedroom house within Rockliffe Hall’s 375-acre estate, ideal for families and groups of four to seven guests?

For the more adventurous there’ll be treasure tails in and around the grounds, a full size croquet lawn and fun-filled activity packs to entertain younger explorers – and of course the most important guests come to visit on Christmas Day morning…..
