Now Available! Come join the fun at Tarraleah’s Christmas in July 2020. If you haven’t been before, be warned, this event is all about fun, silliness, feasting, games and dancing the night away. Get your party together and join us from the 10th -12th July.


Event Schedule


Friday 10th July 

Check in to your chosen accommodation for a quiet night in front of the fire. If you must cook, be sure to bring your goodies and enjoy our well equipped self contained accommodation……. otherwise join us at the Highlander Arms for a relaxed pub dinner and drinks. Booking onto our Whisky Tasting is optional (though some would say essential), to help you further relax and get into the spirit.


Saturday 11th July 

A morning treasure hunt, an afternoon walk, hang out with our friendly but ever hungry ducks and hairy cows (don’t forget to bring along your own lunch goodies).

If treasure hunting and exploring is not your thing, sit back and relax in front of the fire or grab a board game from reception and settle into a good ol’ Christmas grudge match. Study up, in preparation for our annual pub trivia. (No smart phones for trivia please…..) Naturally this is hosted in the Highlander Arms Bar to help you drown your sorrows or toast your crowning achievements.

The gala evening then kicks off with a pre-dinner mulled wine ……….. before heading in for our decadent Christmas feast for a night of fun and frivolity. Dance the night away with the Vice Captains until the late hours. Best costumes/outfits will be rewarded, there are games to be played and limbo to limber up for.

Bring a bunch of friends or family,  to eat, drink and be merry.

Kids of all ages are welcome and encouraged to join in on our silliness.

Everyone gets a late check-out of noon, perfect opportunity to visit the hairy cows one last time before heading home.
