Someone on the radio today mentioned that it was only 76 days until Christmas, a fact that divided the room immediately and amusingly. One half in abject horror and the other in tinsel and fairy light delight. Wherever you stand on this most jolly of holidays, the day is fast approaching.
As ever we’re delighted to be playing host to a number of festive celebrations here at the Hall. We do hope you can join us.
The Study is available for private lunch or dinner parties for between 6-16 people. This comfortable room is ideal for intimate Christmas gatherings and celebrations. Head chef Aaron’s sought-after menu will be the centrepiece of any event and assure the gathering is memorable and festive too, of course.
“I bought a party of 8 for dinner to celebrate my 65th birthday and I just wanted to let you know how we enjoyed the whole experience…All of our guests were quite effusive in their praise so well done to the whole team.” Ian Hamilton, Nov 2018
Dinner with Even Blakke, Clos De Trias, Ventoux
Even owns the Clos de Trias vineyard in the foothills of Mont Ventoux in southern France. Part Scandinavian, part American, he has a wealth of experience from the wineries of California. He acquired Clos de Trias in 2007, attracted by the ancient vines established on the estate. This is a relatively new discovery for us that we’d love to share with you over dinner, with excellent wine, of course.
Wednesday 13th November
Wine Tasting And Light Lunch
Another interesting wine event. Join our sommelier Dominique Baduel for an introduction to the wines of northern Italy, including Piedmont, Lombardy, Friuli and Veneto.
Tasting begins at 12 noon on Saturday 23rd November
Gourmet Treat Before Christmas
Whichever way you look at it, Christmas is busy and yes, often stressful. Our Gourmet Treat package has proved extremely popular with those wishing to stop, breathe and indulge themselves a little before the madding crowd descends.
Stay at the Hall and enjoy a six-course taster meal and full Hambleton breakfast. Available of selected nights between 3rd November – 12th December. For full details visit https://hambletonhall.stoapp.co.uk/special_offers/a-treat-for-autumn/
“We had an absolutely brilliant time thank you – once more! (Hambleton remains a modern marvel so far as we are concerned. To maintain such a high standard for so long is a very rare matter. So well done everyone)” Tom Clay, Feb 2018
Christmas Lunch and Dinner
Celebrate the big event with us over a six-course Christmas lunch or dinner. A guaranteed stress-less occasion in the exclusive surroundings of the hall. Aaron’s menu is a celebration of local and seasonal ingredients.
Boxing Day Walk and Picnic
This year we’ll be following the tradition of our Boxing Day ‘picnic’ and walk. For many years Lord Campden has kindly allowed us the use of Fort Henry for the event. We wrap up warm, pack a fine meat pie, cheeses and dessert and get warm by the log fire inside the fort.
We hope to welcome you over the festive season.
“Every moment we spent at Hambleton Hall was a delight, and we shall always treasure the memories we took away with us of our special day.” Bill Davidson March 2018
