Tidings of comfort and joy

Escape to Hunter’s Yard for a luxurious four-night festive break, and enjoy the pleasures of a relaxing five-star Christmas.

December 23rd at Hunter’s Yard

We’ll have Hunter’s Yard beautifully decorated in anticipation of your arrival. Arrive to the scent of spruce and Christmas spices, the warm glow of fires, and the sound of laughter filling the air.

Welcomed with mulled wine and mince pies, you’ll spend a leisurely afternoon settling in, relaxing and exploring your magical Christmas home. Maybe you’ll have gifts to wrap or friends to seek out. Perhaps you’ll crave a leisurely walk or celebratory cocktails at the bar.

After dinner at Hunter’s Yard, enjoy a relaxing evening as you settle into the festive spirit. This is your Christmas home and we can’t wait to welcome you.




Christmas Eve at Hunters Yard

Waking up at Mount Juliet Estate on Christmas Eve is a special thrill.

After a delicious breakfast, spend the day at leisure, enjoying your new home. Perhaps you’ll follow our walking trails, ride out on horses or play a round of golf. Maybe you’d prefer to read by the fire, or hit the gym.

As dusk begins to settle over Mount Juliet, gather in the twinkling courtyard to sip hot cider and enjoy the uplifting sound of carolling from a festive choir.

Later on, join us for a fun reception of bubbly and canapés, before a special welcome banquet in The McCalmont Suite, with a festive DJ and visit from Mr Claus.


Christmas Day at Hunters Yard

Start your Christmas Day with a decadent Hunter’s Yard champagne breakfast.

The morning is yours to spend relaxing, opening presents, or attending a local Christmas ceremony. Santa Claus will be popping by too, bringing a very special gift for each of our junior guests.

Christmas Day celebrations continue with a champagne reception before we serve our traditional Christmas Dinner. Expect a gourmet extravaganza featuring all of your festive favourites, served with five-star flair.

Christmas afternoon is just as you’d wish, unwinding by the fire – perhaps with a signature Moongate gin and tonic – or taking a relaxed walk around the estate. The evening culminates with a seasonal buffet before settling in with family and newfound friends to enjoy live music and merriment.



St. Stephen’s Day at Hunter’s Yard

Enjoy a leisurely start to St. Stephen’s Day, with a delicious mimosa breakfast.
Afterwards, we invite you to experience the essence of a country estate Christmas, with a thrilling group falconry experience.

There will be plenty of time to fit in an invigorating swim or sauna in our Health Club, a round of golf or a family walk around Mount Juliet Estate. Perhaps you’d prefer to chill by the fire with a new book and let us look after your every need!

Indulgent afternoon tea will be served to a backdrop of live music. Then, finish St Stephen’s Day on a high with a casual dinner in The Hound restaurant followed by live music in The Saddle Bar.

Next morning, awaken rested and refreshed, before one last delicious breakfast to set you on your way.
