... it though. Who am I kidding?! I wouldn’t have it any other way. One thing I would have different was the twins crying their asses off on the 2 hour trip the ENTIRE time! I looked forward to starting that book all day and night and I ended up rereading every line whenever the baby screamed. I therefore made it past the prologue. Yay!
I spent the first 7 hours of the day on top of a roof chipping out cement between the brick work. Afterwards we filled it in ...
Denise at Gates travel said she'd get back to me with potential deals for hotel and flights. that was on Saturday, it is now Tuesday and she's not got back to me yet. I so want to get this holiday booked so that I can start planning. I'll ring her tomorrow. In the meantime, I've spoken to three other travel agents, all of whom are checking hotel prices and ...
... the temptation of chasing them. Despite rain being forecast, the black clouds moved away and we had sunshine all the way. Amazing 360degree views from the top to Windermere, Rydal water, across to the Langdale Pikes and round to Grasmere and Ambleside. Feels like being in Godzone! We found the cave Andy was looking for (great echoes) and the boys continued on whilst Sal and I returned for the car. Having to work out the ironically named 'park with ease' ...
I've just spoken to a lady called Denise at Gates Travel in Kendal. She is looking for hotels and flights for us, for our trip to New York. Our main requirement is that we have a hotel that looks like a hotel, with a canopy at the front, and is ...
... point where our rests time was almost as long as our cycling time. Graham nearly fell asleep in the chair whilst cooking his legs in the sun (photo attached). Debbie got all excited about the chocolate factory and we all waited to see the most powerful steam train in the world - Tornado, newly built from scratch with old plans. To top it off Graham's navigation was perfect as usual and I learnt another top tip from Graham "put sun cream on before you go out in the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Low Wood Bay Windermere
Initially I found Low Wood to be a fairly mediocre hotel, decoration was slightly tatty but location and views over Windermere were good. Unfortunately this was severely overshadowed when both myself and my husband came away from our short stay badly flea bitten.
Their tolerance of Pets in rooms has seemingly left other unwelcome guests in the rooms...
Though we did (eventually) extract an apology from the manager their promise of an explanation has not been fulfilled. For the price, I suggest you could find a much better hotel nearby.
We stayed for a weekend recently. The location of the hotel is excellent overlooking the lake-beautiful.
Great Hotel, Great Service
I got married at the Low Wood in 2003. The service was brilliant as was the food, many of our guests stayed there and commented on the quality of the hotel. The only downfall is the prices, but you pay for the location.
Search out a deal
Stayed here during walking break and obtained good discount on room & 5 course dinner. Room was exec type and functional/clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful and service was good. Facilities are excellent if somewhat sprawling - you need map to find your way around
Overall enjoyed stay - not sure if I would have enjoyed as much if I had paid full rate, which seems pricey.
I have stayed here twice and my experiences a matter of months apart could not have been more different.
My wife and I decided to drive up from Manchester to spend some time away with friends.
Quaint Lakeside Hotel
Excellent location right on Lake Windermere, but be warned that you have to cross a road (a rather busy one) to get to the water. The Leisure Club is an excellent amenity - complete with pool, jacuzzi, steam room, sauna as well as a gym. There is also a beauty salon where I treated myself to a massage (OK) and facial (mediocre). Room service is available, which is a rarity for a place like this. Food throughout (breakfast in the main dining room, lunch in the Italian bistro, and room-service dinner) was excellent. Overall, great value for the money. It was a perfect weekend break for an American living in London who wanted to get out of the city and see the beautiful Lake District.
Great Service and child frindly shame about the Bistro!
An excellent hotel where the staff could could not do enough for us, Particularly because we had a 3 month old baby with us. All the facilities are child friendly and surprisingly both restuarants were helpful with the baby. The only criticism we had was with the poor food in the Bistro Cafe de Lago and very poor service. There was just not enough staff to serve the Bistro, Pub and cocktail bar, whereas the Windemere restruarant had far to many staff to serve us, The balance was wrong. However, a great short break was had by all but get a room with a lake view and eat in the Windemere restuarant.
This hotel is absolutely gorgeous. Have been to the Lake District many times and will always stay at the Low Wood in future. It's so gorgeous if you're here for a romantic weekend you won't feel the need to even leave the hotel! I highly recommend staying here for either business or pleasure, but especially pleasure!
Love This Hotel
Stayed at the Low Wood Hotel many times on Buisness & Pleasure and will continue to do so. the Hotel, Food & Staff are excellent and always meet our requirementswithout any fuss.
