Conlon begins multi-million redevelopment on Lake District hotel

Preston-based Conlon Construction adds another multi-million project to its portfolio as it begins work on a Lake District hotel.

Funded by English Lakes Hotels Resorts & Venues, which owns the historic property, the £16m project will see Low Wood Bay Resort & Spa in the Lake District completely renovated with new features added.

Designed by Mason Gillibrand Architects, Conlon’s programme of works comprises a complete renovation, with a full upgrade and refurbishment of all existing rooms, new outdoor leisure facilities, along with a new Atrium and a world class spa, complete with an outdoor heated infinity pool, sauna, steam room and Canadian hot tubs with views over the lake and mountains.

A further new building will open later in the year with 32 additional suites and studio rooms including its own club lounge and roof garden.

The hotel, which enjoys a waterfront setting looking out onto Lake Windermere, closed for its revamp on Monday 3rd January 2017 and will reopen in April 2017, once the first phase of the renovation is complete.

Simon Berry, Chairman and MD of English Lakes Hotels Resorts & Venues, said: “It is a really exciting new chapter for us here at Low Wood Bay. This stunning building has been here for more than 300 years and this will be the biggest change it has gone through in its history.

“We’re excited to be working with Conlon who hold extensive experience of delivering schemes for historic properties. We will be working together to make something truly special, bringing modern, top quality facilities to the area but without compromising the integrity or charm of this iconic building. We can’t wait to welcome our guests, both old and new, to see their reactions.”

Michael Conlon, chairman at Conlon Construction, added: “Low Wood Bay Resort & Spa is a historic building with so much potential and it’s a real privilege to be part of the biggest transformation in its history. Our experience will enable us to deliver the project effectively and play a part in contributing to the hotel’s vision of becoming a world-class resort.”
