Low Wood Bay Hotel gets the go ahead

We’re pleased to see the Lake District National Park support the redevelopment of Low Wood Bay hotel by granting planning permission for the extension of the hotel and leisure facilities at the hotel on the shores of Windermere.

Stephenson Halliday has worked closely with architects Mason Gillibrand in preparing a masterplan and detailed landscape concept proposals for the redevelopment.

Simon Berry, Managing Director of English Lakes Hotels Resorts & Venues, said: “This is marvellous news.  It’s the largest redevelopment of Low Wood Bay hotel since 1859, creating the Lake District’s first luxury destination resort.

“We’re thrilled that the Lake District National Park Authority recognises what we are trying to achieve.  In setting its vision for the park to be ‘world class’, it is now clearly supporting business to deliver on that vision and is showing the faith to back us on this project.

“Our desire to create excellence and make significant improvements at one of our flagship hotel sites is a real fillip for both business and tourism in the area, especially at a time when the Lake District is seeking to attain World Heritage status.”

Set within the Lake District National Park, the key focus was to sensitively assimilate the proposals into the surrounding character of the area. The proposals entailed the design of the external areas surrounding the new buildings and access road including the bedroom accommodation, atrium and multi-use sport pitch as well as the re-design of other existing areas such as the hotel frontage and new outdoor spa.
