“It was a cold, winter night and guests at The Cottage in the Wood had just settled down for a night of comfort and serenity, tainted only by the inexorable excitement and anticipation for the morning ahead. With stomachs full and cocktails aplenty, a welcomed calmness fell over the hills as an evening of melodic festivities drew to a close.” – an extract from Malvern’s Mystic Premonition Memoirs.

Christmas two-night luxury break
The celebrations begin the moment you step foot in The Cottage in the Wood on Christmas Eve with a welcome Cottage Cocktail in the en-vogue Georgian style bar, followed by carol singers by the Christmas tree. Then, a delectable three-course dinner will be served in the elegant and contemporary restaurant 1919, overlooking the twinkling lights of the Cotswolds.
Christmas Day begins with a Bucks Fizz breakfast and a gourmet five-course lunch delivered with a festive twist by head chef, Mark Redwood, and bursting with fresh, clean flavours. Take a break and put your feet up with a classic seasonal movie screening followed by a final spread of edible treats.
No Christmas experience would be complete at The Cottage in the Wood without exploring the great outdoors directly on your doorstep. Learn of all the mythical and magical secrets of the Malvern Hills on an entertaining Boxing Day walk with your expert guide, Rick Banbury.
The afternoon offers a live jazz extravaganza back at the hotel with the Dom Franks Trio and special USA Guest Vocalist, Jess Agg, performing classic swing, Latin and ballads from the Ella Fitzgerald songbook.
