Windermere hotel wins top wedding venue award

A hotel on the shores of Windermere has been recognised for its outstanding service and facilities as a wedding venue.

Low Wood Bay Resort & Spa has won the Best Wedding Venue in Cumbria accolade in the County Brides North West Wedding Awards, thanks to the efforts of its wedding team Lucy Newton, Rachel Baines, Ewelina Jozwik and Demi Harris.

The annual awards are voted for by brides and grooms who have had outstanding experiences, paying distinct recognition to wedding suppliers across the North West who have demonstrably shown an ability to provide extra mile service.

Rachel, who is involved with the wedding team at both Low Wood Bay and The Wild Boar Inn, says: “We’ve had some heart-warming feedback from couples who have chosen to tie the knot with our wedding team at the helm. We thrive on the chance to offer them a range of optional extras and finer details to ensure their big day is unique.  So we’re thrilled to bits to win this award, and we had a great time at the awards ceremony too.”

With scope to cater for smaller wedding parties through to larger scale events for up to 280 guests, Low Wood Bay Resort & Spa has a private wedding area so that couples and families do not need to pay for total exclusivity of the hotel.  The venue’s spa facilities and thermal journeys are another key benefit for wedding couples.

Mark Needham from English Lakes Hotels Resorts & Venues adds: “The County Brides North West Wedding award for best venue in Cumbria is a reflection on all the hard work our wedding co-ordinators and the wider team at Low Wood Bay put in throughout the year to make the big day that extra special for brides and grooms.

“We always strive to offer points of difference for our wedding couples and guests, whether it’s more flexible menu options and additional creations from our in-house executive chef or our novelty ‘beer boat’ as an alternative way to serve drinks during the wedding day celebrations.”

Low Wood Bay Resort & Spa is also on the shortlist for the 2023 Cumbria Tourism awards as a leading wedding venue in the Lake District.
