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 seasonal shindig with us.


From the cosiness of the vaulted Mowbray and adjacent Mandeville Suites, to the magnificence of the ancient Tithe Barn, there are umpteen historic, charming and luxurious spaces to choose from for your festive celebrations.


With 42 extravagant and luxurious rooms & suites, the revelry need not end at the strike of midnight (well, 10pm...) and guests can expect to wake to enjoy handsome portions of traditional fare.


Let’s have a party no one will forget...


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.
