Booking fast! Come join in on the fun at Tarraleah’s Christmas in July. 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 12th -14th July.


Event Schedule


Friday 12th July 

Check in to your chosen accommodation for a quiet night in front of the fire. If you must cook, do, otherwise the Highlander Arms will be open for you. Revel in the fact that for this Christmas, you don’t have to put any bikes or trampolines together and no one needs fight about who brings what! Booking onto our Whisky, Gin & Vodka Tasting is optional (though some would say essential), to help you further relax and get into the spirit.


Saturday 13th July 

Teez Café will be open for Saturday morning, yes that means “real coffee!” Advance bookings for breakfast essential.

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 tipple ……….. before heading in for our Decadent Christmas feast for a night of fun and frivolity. Dance the night away -yes that band “Crikey” from 2018 is back again to rock on 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.


Sunday 14th July 

Everyone gets a late check-out of noon, perfect opportunity to visit the hairy cows one last time. Espresso coffee from Teez café will this year be available to help you find your feet and get back on the road for home.
