Festive packages at the Brudenell Hotel, Aldeburgh

Book a magical three-night full board Christmas package at the luxurious Brudenell Hotel at Aldeburgh, overlooking Suffolk’s Heritage Coast, and enjoy a lavish festive break by the sea with all the trimmings.

Arrive on Christmas Eve, Saturday 24th December, and you will be welcomed with a warming glass of mulled wine to put you in the festive spirit. Then join fellow guests for canapés and a superb dinner in the AA two rosette Seafood & Grill restaurant, created by Head Chef Ben Hegarty and his team.

Start Christmas day with a full Suffolk breakfast, or perhaps something lighter and save your appetite for the traditional lunch with roast Suffolk turkey and all the trimmings. Afterwards you can simply relax or follow the Brudenell treasure hunt, there’s also a quiz with the answers and winning team revealed after a buffet supper.

On Boxing Day enjoy a late breakfast then explore the local area or take a bracing walk along the seafront and watch the hardy compete in the annual Boxing Day charity swim; lunch and a buffet dinner will be served at the hotel with light entertainment. The next morning it’s time to bid farewell to friends old and new after breakfast.

Set in one of Britain’s best seaside locations, the stylish 44-bedroom, four-star hotel is just a step away from the shingle beach with magnificent panoramic sea views to the front, while at the back it overlooks the river Alde and surrounding countryside. Its tranquil situation, coastal themed decor and fresh, locally sourced food, optimises the perfect Christmas break.
