We are delighted to introduce you to Dr and Mrs Eagle, regular guests to Waterhead. They share with us their top 5 car-free days out from the hotel in Ambleside, which adds to a relaxing stay in the Lake District.
Having tried lots of places over the years Waterhead remains our favourite. It’s a luxurious break without the guess work of whether the bed will be comfy or the quality of food and wine or if the staff are friendly. I’m quite fussy and like a quiet room, thick curtains and a powerful shower. Add to this a stunning view, fluffy towels and bathrobes, a library of DVDs, gingerbread and freshly roasted coffee! All of this adds up to a really relaxing break and that is why we keep coming back.
We love just parking the car when we arrive and then ignoring it for the duration of our stay. Here are out top five picks for car-free outings from Waterhead:
Keep your eyes peeled! Waterhead’s Gin Bike is out and about in South Lakes and offers a chance to win a stay at Waterhead, including a special gin tasting experience. The Gin Bike locations to date have been a carefully guarded secret, but we’ve had some leaked information that it will definitely be appearing at Ambleside Sports on 28th July.
All you have to do for a chance to win is grab a photo selfie with the Gin Bike and post on Twitter and Facebook remembering to include #WaterheadGinCycle.
Waterhead is delighted to be adorned with a TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice Award 2015, which means it is one of the Top 25 hotels in the UK based on guest reviews. It was also the only hotel in the Lake District to receive this award.
On Thursday the 11th of December Low Wood hosted a very special Spirit of Christmas Afternoon Tea 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 “Spreading Some Christmas Joy at Low Wood Bay”→
