Arrive from 12pm and collect your accommodation keys from Reception. On your way to your accommodation pick up a gingerbread latte and festive treat from Starbucks!

Now it’s time to settle into your Winter Wonderland retreat. Unpack the bags, kick off your shoes and make yourself at home – the festivities are about to begin!

Sanat Visits at Ribby Hall Village


Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a visit to see Santa! Visit Santa’s Grotto at 11am, climbing the stairs to the Gingerbread Tree House, where you can meet the big man himself and receive a special Christmas gift!

The excitement continues over in our tropical-style Leisure Pool. Race down the thrill slides, jump in the lagoon or relax in the spa pools.

It’s Two for Tuesday at Papa John’s Pizza Store so after a busy morning tuck into some slices of pure deliciousness for lunch.

Spend the afternoon trying your hand at something new; choose from several different indoor & outdoor activities – perhaps archery, biking or laser tag?

As the evening rolls in it’s time to join Santa’s team of Elves for a Holly Jolly Supper at 5pm. You’ll tuck into a delicious festive supper and enjoy a visit from our character Rudolph!
