Windermere hotel to undergo £16m redevelopment

The Low Wood Bay Resort and Spa in Windermere in the Lake District is to undergo a £16m transformation.

The first stage of the project will see the property completely renovated. All 111 bedrooms will be refurbished, new outdoor leisure facilities will be installed including an atrium and spa, and a new restaurant fitted.

The spa will feature an outdoor heated infinity pool, sauna, steam room and Canadian hot tubs with views over the lake and mountains.

The Blue Smoke restaurant will serve a menu made from British produce, cooked on a South American wood fired grill. The hotel aims to reopen in April this year.

During the second phase, a new building will open which will house 32 suites and studio rooms. It will also include a club lounge and roof garden.

The property is owned by English Lakes Hotels Resorts and Venues, which has worked with the Lake District National Park Authority to encourage visitors to the hotel.

Simon Berry, chairman and MD of English Lakes Hotels Resorts and Venues said: "It is a really exciting new chapter for us here at Low Wood Bay. This stunning building has been here for over 300 years and this will be the biggest change it has gone through in its history.

"The Lake District is a uniquely beautiful holiday destination and we're creating an exceptional, stand-out resort from which to enjoy it. We want to make something truly special, bringing modern, top quality facilities to the area but without compromising the integrity or charm of this historic building; we really feel we have achieved that with these plans. We can't wait to welcome our guests, both old and new, to see their reactions."
