What a lovely hotel......... We have stayed here twice now, last being on the 27th & 28th December and both times have been a real pleasure. The location is perfect for Windermere, Ambleside and access to The Cumbrian Mountains which we spent a lot of time on. The mountain passes were great fun (even at minus 2/3 degrees!) and the...

A very pleasant hotel with staff to match, nothing is too much trouble. Situated at the edge of Windermere this hotel can trace it's heritage back 300 years (they most be doing something correct). The hotel has a wide variety of services and activities including a good sized swimming pool, the gym however is in need of an update.

Stayed in the lakes many times at Christmas time, and I would rank the Low Wood Bay hotel has one of our best experiences. Excellent staff and accommodation, first rate food and the service is second to none.
