As much as we don’t like to think about time passing quickly, Christmas, dare we say it, is around the corner and before you blink, it will be upon us all. Which is why we have published our Christmas packages and offers early this year, to help you get the planning signed, sealed and delivered.

The reality is, our Christmas Meals are filling up fast, and if they are anything like 2018, will be sold out by the time you realise that you simply don’t feel like cooking this year. So, to help you be a little more proactive this year, we’ve put together some fantastic packages. Here’s what you can look forward to:

Christmas Accommodation Package

Christmas at The Ollerod is always a spectacular affair where our guests are treated to an unforgettable seasonal treat. And this year will be no different. Check in on Tuesday, 24th December, and check out on Friday, 27th December, and enjoy the following treats:
