The Lodore Falls Hotel and Borrowdale Hotel in the Borrowdale Valley reopened their doors on Thursday 10th December after negotiating the aftermath of storm Desmond. The two hotels have maintained their festive cheer and have been welcoming locals and residents in to enjoy Christmas lunches, mulled wine and mince pies, party nights and overnight stays.
It’s been a tough week for many people in Cumbria following on from the floods and devastation of storm Desmond. Our two lakeside hotels; the Lodore Falls Hotel in Borrowdale and the Inn on the Lake in Ullswater have both suffered from the storm, however we are pleased to announce that both hotels are open as usual.
For over 36 years, local residents from the Eden area have held their over 60’s luncheon at the Inn on the Lake in Ullswater, which is organised by Jean Smith. Jean started the annual luncheon by having a swear box in the Hikers Bar, now known as Ramblers Bar situated in the grounds of the hotel, which over the years has helped to fund these events.
Elf on the Shelf is a fun family Christmas tradition which began as a children’s book in the US in 2005, telling the story of how Father Christmas sends an elf to check whether children are being “naughty or nice”. This has led on to children around the world going crazy for Elf on the Shelf; the book comes with a elf puppet which allows the parents to recreate the story in their own homes, by placing the elf in different locations in the house every night from the 1st December right up until Christmas Eve.
There was great excitement at the Inn on the Lake on Sunday 29th November, when pupils from Patterdale School and children from Glenridding came to help Santa switch-on of the Christmas lights.
For Tricia Irving, our Interior Floral Designer Christmas starts in February, with all the preparations of selecting new decorations and planning new colour schemes for the Lake District Hotel group. Each year Tricia and her assistants decorate all six of the hotels, with 2015 being a record year after the hotel group added their newest hotel, Inn on the Square to the decorating list, increasing the number of hotels to decorate to seven.
