The Christmas Holidays at Great Fosters - parties, feasts and stays near Windsor

“A Merry Christmas to us all, my dears. God bless us!”

Where we ask you could be lovelier, or more charming, or even more perfect for the best Christmas holiday than Great Fosters? The original destination for laughter & good humour, (which we say with some authority as a 16th Century mansion) you can be assured of the most marvellous holiday with your loved ones.

Our Christmas Holiday package from the 24th to the 27th of December is positively packed with all the essential ingredients (and a few more exotic ones too!) for a sensational seasonal stay. And let us not forget the balls, the parties and the splendour of December. From the cosiness of the exquisite Anne Boleyn drawing room, to the magnificence of the ancient Tithe Barn, there are umpteen historic, charming and luxurious spaces to choose from for your festive celebrations, and gatherings of friends and family.

Please note, where necessary we will adapt our festive offering to comply with Covid-19 regulations but you can be assured it will still be just as special.
