On Thursday the 11th of December Low Wood hosted a very special Spirit of Christmas Afternoon Tea Event.
Martha Wood, Reception Shift Leader who organised the event
Martha Wood, the Reception Shift Leader from Low Wood Bay had an idea to do something fantastic for some of the older members of our local community to spread some Christmas Joy! What started as a small idea was then encouraged by the management of the hotel and English Lakes Directors and also supported by many local businesses in the area. This spurred Martha on to organise a memorable event full of festive joy for over one hundred people from our local community. Continue reading
Sam’s Club is our way of welcoming children to the English Lakes family of hotels. Children aged 5 to 10 each receives a goody bag to keep them entertained during their stay at the hotels. During school holidays we have our Sam’s Splashtime at Low Wood Club and Sandpiper Club, where we provide Sam’s pool inflatables and toys. We also have nature walks and craft activities at various times and different locations around the group. Sam makes appearances now and again to welcome the children in person – you just never know when he might pop up!

Tim Bell practicing for his next charity challenge.
At English Lakes we are always looking out for ways to have a positive impact on our local communities. We do this in a number of ways from policy and practice to voluntary support and raising funds for charity. We all try to do our bit, but one member of the Lancaster House always strives to take his fund raising to new heights!
Tim Bell, Lancaster House General Manager, is due to make his attempt to summit Mont Blanc between June 15 and 21. He is climbing the mountain to help raise money for local charity St John’s Hospice in Lancaster.
Lying on the France-Italy Border, and standing at 15,781ft, the notorious Alp, which is the highest peak in Western Europe, has often claimed around 100 lives each year. Continue reading
