Celebrate the whole festive season with friends!

Want to take it easy this Christmas? The Hawthorns will do all of the hard work for you from just £65 a day, all-inclusive!

It’s the most magical time of the year but it can also be the most stressful with so much to do and so many people to see. What if you (or your parents) could spend it being looked after for less cost than a hotel, all food and drink included!? Step forward The Hawthorns, a stunning retirement village in Northampton which we’ve visited a couple of times; always being bowled over by what they offer (it’s got a bowling alley, cocktails before dinner AND a hair salon).

This Xmas they’re inviting you to spend the festive season with them and other like-minded retirees, with a one month, truly all-inclusive stay from only £65 per day* – allowing you a stress free Christmas and New Year that gives you more time to spend with friends and family (and much less cleaning). Winner, winner, turkey dinner!

If you want to socialise with others but still be in the comfort of your own space and surroundings, The Hawthorns gives you your own, spacious apartment plus many fab extras to make your stay like a  holiday.

Included, is their fine dining experience plus daily refreshments to keep you on your toes for a range of activities. Alongside the restaurant quality food and wine with dinner there are exercise classes, a gym, indoor short-mat bowling and the occasional excursion for interesting days out with like-minded people. 

You can pamper yourself as you indulge in a massage at their very own spa, or get a new look for Crimbo at the hair and beauty salon, all on site ready and waiting for you. If you need a little quiet time, enjoy a relaxing festive movie in their cinema room or catch up on the news at the library, fully stocked with newspapers and books to keep you occupied.

There’s loads to do there over the Christmas season too! There’s the Christmas light switch on taking place on Friday 29th November as well as their Christmas Fayre on Saturday 30th November with a fab selection of seasonal stalls, mulled wine and mince pies. The Hawthorns truly is a retirement village like no other and has been accredited with the prestigious Hospitality Assured Award. To be honest, it’s like a cruise, that doesn’t undock from Northampton; we tried out the restaurant and the wine, natch. And who doesn’t fancy all that Cruise Christmas luxury?!
