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.

Our Christmas Package

Great Fosters is aglow during the holidays, dressed top to toe in seasonal splendour with every detail thought of. Our Christmas Package is the crowning glory of the season, with guests arriving for two or three nights from the 24th of December, ready for a most luxurious Christmas.
