Christmas in the Cotswolds

If you’ve ever dreamt of escaping the family arguments at Christmas time or simply getting away so that someone else can do the cooking and, better still, the washing up, then here’s your chance.  The Close Hotel in Tetbury, the latest acquisition from the award-winning Cotswold Inns & Hotels, is offering a 20% reduction on its three-day Christmas package, making Christmas in the Cotswolds an affordable reality.

Close @ Christmas (2) (800x756)The Close Hotel Tetbury (800x600)The Close Hotel’s Christmas package includes all of the following:

Christmas Eve
A warm and friendly welcome on arrival and then, once you have settled into your room, take a table in the Garden Restaurant to enjoy a festive full afternoon tea. A little last-minute Christmas shopping in the many gift shops, art galleries and antiques arcades of Tetbury or a walk around this stunning Cotswold town, admiring the golden hues of the historic architecture.

Start the evening with a glass of Champagne before enjoying a three-course dinner and then, should you wish to attend Midnight Mass in one of the town’s churches, mulled wine and warm mince pies will await your return to The Close Hotel.

Christmas Day
Open your presents and take breakfast at your leisure before enjoying a bracing stroll around the town and surrounding countryside or a few hours curled up in front of one of our roaring log fires simply chilling out, before our Head Chef David Brown and his team serve up a traditional Christmas lunch, with all the trimmings.

In the afternoon enjoy a traditional board game in the bar, a festive snooze or simply settle down in one of our comfy sofas to watch – in time-honoured tradition – the Queen’s speech on the television. In the evening, a hot and cold buffet supper will be served, so you can eat as much or as little as you like.

Boxing Day
Enjoy a hearty breakfast and then spend the day at your leisure; you might like to make the short drive to Westonbirt Arboretum for a gentle stroll through the glorious tree-lined avenues or venture further a field and explore some of the beautiful Cotswold villages.  Return in time to relax and prepare for a magnificent four-course dinner and live music from our jazz pianist.

December 27th 
A traditional full English breakfast is served, before The Close Hotel bids you a fond farewell, unless – of course – you wish to extend your stay a day or more.

The Close Hotel’s three-day festive package, originally priced from £450 per person, now starts at just £360, to include all of the above.  Bookings, which must be made by 1st December 2013, are now be taken via the website ( and by phone on 01666 502272.
