We should have just driven through the night...

... a bit as you had now woken up, and then finally, finally starting to drift off again, she would then make it known in her own delightful way that she needed to go again. Needless to say, driving off in the morning, we were equally, if not more tired, then we would have been had we not just driven through the night. Still on the bright side, Murray slept all the way to Skye, and we got to see the amazing Scottish glens in all their snow-capped, mist-filled ...

... of it. We ordered our beer and lunch at the counter and grabbed a table under the stairwell. Lunch showed up nice and warm and it was a comfort after all the cold for the day. The sandwich I got was a ham and cheese which was pressed shut around the edges to keep all the warm food inside when it was toasted. Logan had a baked potato with chili and cheese on top. Delicious!

After lunch we went back out and walked around the area where the pub was. ...

... town surrounding the edges of it with plenty of shopping and food. We walked around the main dock area where they had daily cruises and boats for rent. Since the weather was starting to get rainy and windy, we opted out of the cruise but did walk around and take pictures. They even sold duck food since there were ducks and swans all around the area and they knew about the food, they followed you! I tried to get a picture with ...

... a temporary compost toilet and bush shower, to improve sanitation whilst we are here and for the volunteers – this was vital. We have bought also about ten buckets for storing water. The building has needed a lot of water for cement etc, so we have needed to store water when it is is available. Some days last week the borehole was dry, and this storage was vital. This week there has been a lot of rain and the borehole is replenished; especially now the demand ...

Departure

A travel blog entry by ewanrichardson

I departed Oxenholme station in late afternoon, after waving my family goodbye I settled into the first stage of my long journey across the world.

After several hours on the virgin train from the north I arrived in
london at Euston, I crossed to Notting hill gate to meet natascha, my
first host of the long trip! She showed me around the area of london
where she lives and we went for a cheeky pint in a lovely little pub.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Low Wood Bay Windermere

    Flea Bitten

    from

    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.

    Mixed

    from

    We stayed for a weekend recently. The location of the hotel is excellent overlooking the lake-beautiful.

    Great Hotel, Great Service

    from

    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.

    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.

    Would not return here - 2 different sides of same hotel?

    from

    I have stayed here twice and my experiences a matter of months apart could not have been more different.

    No Smoke and No Fire

    from

    My wife and I decided to drive up from Manchester to spend some time away with friends.

    Quaint Lakeside Hotel

    from

    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!

    from

    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.

    Absolutely Gorgeous

    from

    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!
