Christmas is a wonderful time of year. At Silverlake, Dorset, we’ve got your Christmas all wrapped up, so you can sit back, relax and enjoy making memories with the ones you love. Wrap up warm to enjoy a blustery stroll along the nearby coastline or explore the acres of heathland surrounding the Estate before cosying up in front of a roaring log fire for an afternoon of board games and festive films together.
Start your celebrations early with our range of festive drinks and cocktails at the Hurricane Terrace; choose from a frosty Christmas Negroni, made with Reverend gin, Vermouth and Campari, a delicious Mulled Wine, or a decadent Hot Chocolate topped with all the trimmings. We’ve even got a deliciously festive-themed pizza for you to tuck into; ‘Deck the Halls’. Topped with wood-roasted brussel sprouts, Dorset cured ham, buffalo mozzarella, parmesan, red onion, sage and lemon – it’s sure to be a hit with everyone!
If you’re looking for an afternoon of fun with your little ones, we’ll be hosting a gingerbread decorating workshop* in the Yurt on Tuesday 20th December. Our kits include everything you need to get creative, with hand-baked gingerbread pieces, icing, sweets and treats. For the adults, there’ll be plenty of mulled wine and mince pies to keep you going. Don’t worry if you can’t join us for the afternoon; you can pop up to the Hurricane Terrace and get a kit to decorate at home.
Embrace nature and catch a breath of fresh air with a 'Winter Welly Walk' hosted by the Activity Hub. This family-friendly walk will take you through the beautiful nature reserve surrounding Silverlake. There’s even a halfway stop for roasting marshmallows over a fire before finishing off with a mug of hot chocolate or a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie.
We’ve also covered the main event with our ready-to-roast Christmas Lunch Kit. Simply pre-order your festive feast and collect it from the Hurricane Terrace on Christmas Eve. Use the pre-order form to order your premium range of meat and all the trimmings for you and your guests and we’ll do the rest! Pre-orders close on Friday 16th December, so be quick.
On top of all that, the Hurricane Spa have a fantastic range of gift sets available for those last-minute gifts you might need!
