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”

Low Wood Bay unveil revolutionary plan allowing cyclists to cross the lake.
UPDATE 2nd April 2014: Many of you keen eyed followers will have spotted this story about our “Floatation Over Of Lakes Scheme” affectionately known as “FOOLS” was of course an April Fools Joke.
An uncle and nephew team have developed and tested a new concept that would allow cyclists of all ages to safely cross Windermere, bypassing a stretch of road with no cycle lane provision.
The plan would allow cyclists to use patent pending devices that attach to 80% of cycles and allow you to navigate over the lake in all but the worst conditions. Continue reading “Cycle link across Windermere now a reality”

Nevil Jeffery, General Manager at Low Wood Bay has recently caught the Art bug, inspired to create digital art after meeting the iArt master J.A.C…
Twelve months ago I came across the guru of the “dark side” of iArt, Joseph Connor (J.A.C.) founder of #seensend. I love the concept – encouraging people to get out and about and capture an image on a mobile device. Once the image gets the J.A.C. stamp of approval, he rewards the photographer with a piece of art created on his iPad.
Sophia Newton, owner of the Loovre Gallery in Kirkby Lonsdale and founder of annual Artober festival embraced this new art medium and invited Joseph to attend the week long, interactive art exhibition at Low Wood Bay. This radical but simple method of producing art provides an accessible, affordable medium which appeals to all age-groups. Let’s face it, taking a hand-held electronic tablet into the great outdoors is a little more practical than a large canvas! Continue reading “iPad Art – accessible to all!”
