We have just got back from celebrating our mini- moon after our wedding in Low Wood Bay and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. When we arrived we found out that we had been upgraded to a lake facing room and in the room there was a congratulations balloon along with a card from the hotel. The hotel is literally... More

My mother and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We brought our dog as the hotel was dog friendly and it was set in a perfect location, ideal for sight seeing and walking.
