Half Term Happenings

School half term already! We are almost saying goodbye to February! We have had some wonderful weather recently proper spring days it’s been great to be out and about. Mike our head chef and Gerry our full time joiner had a great time on their ‘Boys Walk’ yesterday through the Newlands valley near Braithwaite and along Hindscarth Edge to finish with a well earned pint.


We have some new and ‘shocking’ news for you …. in our support of a greener community we are pleased to announce the installation of two electric car charge points. One is situated at the front of the hotel with a handy pull in parking place and the other is situated in the covered car park by the lodges. We hope that it’s an ‘electrfiying ‘success and not a ‘shock’ to anyone!!

Who Stole January!

We can’t quite belive we are in February already (come on own up who stole January from us!)   Valentines is coming up  for all you old romantics out there  and half term is just round the corner. We have had a little snow which does look picture perfect on the fells and of course last weekend we had the Big Chill Swim at Lowwood Bay. Over 200 swimmers braved the chilly lake and donned their goggles, hats but not their wetsuits  and plunged in to Lake Windermere. The event attracted a whole range of swimmers form as far a field as Canada, Russia & Latvia and of course our own swimmers Mike D (our Head Chef) and Mike H (our plumber/maintenance man). We think they are all a bit billy bonkers for competing but the atmosphere and organisation was amazing and a great day was had by all …. well done to our own Big Fish the two Mikes! Brrrrrrr…….
