Deck the Halls!

Here at Peak Venues, we love Christmas cheer, and each year we make sure all of the properties are decorated with a Christmas Tree and lights. These will be in place from 2nd December through to 2nd January 2023. If you want to make your chosen property even more festive, please feel free to bring along your own decorations and create a Christmas wonderland. 

We simply ask that you take care with walls, woodwork, furniture and decor to avoid damage. And don't forget to pack them up and take them home with you!

Gather and Feast

We take entertaining very seriously, so be assured that your chosen holiday home will be well equipped for you to rustle up your favourite festive feast in no time. There is ample kitchen and storage space in each property, and they all have roasting tins, pans, plenty of crockery/ cutlery and glassware. If you want to make your table extra special, we suggest bringing any table decor, charger plates, platters or serving dishes with you.

If the thought of cooking a festive meal for your group fills you with dread, then fear not. We have many fabulous private chefs and caterers who we can recommend to do all the hard work for you.

On arrival, you are greeted with mulled wine and mince pies to warm you up. The Brass bands play various Christmas favourites, both modern songs and traditional carols. Best of all, the audience is enthusiastically involved in the singing, making this the perfect festive fun in the run-up to Christmas.
