With Christmas around the corner and Jack Frost almost nipping at our noses, now is the time to relax and enjoy the festivities that this month has to offer. Fishmore Hall, the luxury boutique hotel in Ludlow is here to help with last minute planning with a range of Christmas deals to get guests in the Christmas spirit; from half-price pre-Christmas getaways to a celebratory Christmas Champagne Package.

Fishmore Hall is a Regency-style hotel, owned and run by Acorn Award winner Laura Penman. Laura purchased Fishmore Hall as a derelict property and in 22 weeks transformed it into a boutique 15 bedroom hotel.

Located in the foodie destination of Ludlow, the hotel is easily accessible from the A49 and set in the breathtaking Shropshire countryside. The contemporary hotel welcomes those looking for a relaxed foodie break in one of the most unspoilt counties in England.

Half Price Pre-Christmas Getaway

Christmas can be tough on the wallet, but Fishmore Hall is offering guests the chance to book a room at this delightfully restored Georgian house from Sunday to Thursday before the 23rd December for less than half price. Rooms start from just £70 per room.

During their stay, guests can enjoy a luxurious night away whilst getting the chance to do some Christmas shopping in Ludlow’s wonderful selection of independent stores.

Two Night Christmas Break – Just £300 per room

When booked between Saturday 26th December and Wednesday 30th December, for just £300 per room guests can enjoy dinner in Fishmore Hall’s 3AA Rosette restaurant, Forelles on one evening of their stay. Head chef Andrew Birch has crafted an indulgent Christmas menu for the occasion ensuring guests are left satisfied.

Andrew Birch has previously been awarded Welsh Chef of the Year in 2004, Young Chef Apprentice of Britain in 2005, Young Chef Apprentice of Europe in 2005, and was a finalist in the Roux Regional Scholarship in 2006.

Sparkling Christmas Champagne Package

For those who want extra sparkles this year, the Christmas Champagne Package has been created. This includes a 2-night stay where guests will find half bottle of Ayala on ice in their room on arrival, and they are invited to enjoy their pre-dinner nibbles with a classic Champagne Cocktail. Not only this but each of the three courses at Forelles will be served with a different glass of champagne. The following morning there will be the opportunity to enjoy a mimosa with breakfast and full Afternoon Tea will be served with a glass of Prosecco.  Finally, a glass of Laurent Perrier Rose will be available before heading into town to one of Ludlow’s wide choice of restaurants.

The Christmas Champagne Package costs £495 based on two people sharing one room.

There are still tables available for the Boxing Day Roast Lunch on Saturday 26th December and Sunday 27th December, and this festive season, Forelles will be open to guests on Monday 28th December.
