Christmas Parties at River Cottage
River Cottage HQ is a great place to visit at any time of year but is extra magical in the lead up to Christmas.
Our 100-acre farm is the perfect backdrop for a special celebration, whether you are planning an intimate supper, long table feast or high kicking party!
Your evening begins at 6.00pm with a short ride down the track to an aperitif and canapés in our cosy yurt. Relax on the sheepskin-covered straw bales and roast chestnuts over the open wood fire. Dinner is served in our stunning 18th century threshing barn where we seat up to 64 guests on communal feasting tables. You will enjoy a fantastic three course seasonal menu of locally sourced ingredients featuring River Cottage recipe favourites and newly inspired dishes. At the end of the evening there will be coffee and petits fours before you are transported back up the track.
The bar will be open throughout the evening offering a selection of spirits, wine, sparkling, beer, ale, cider and soft drinks or keep it festive with a seasonal cocktail at our pop-up wild cocktail bar.
We are experts at organising and hosting all styles of event so please do speak to our team about how we can deliver the sort of celebration you dream of! Whether it’s hitting the dance floor at the end of the evening, organising transport, creating a signature cocktail or something we may not have even thought of yet, we are very happy to help.
