Anthony & Emese along with the other staff were just fantastic and we will have such fantastic memories because they all made our day so special...

Gemma & Dale Thompson - Summer Wedding

We chose the Old England having contacted Michelle to discuss what could be offered. She immediately developed a rapport with us and we felt confident that the planning under her guidance would be just what we were looking for. Aside from the gorgeous location right on the shores of Lake Windermere among the stunning scenery surrounding Bowness, Michelle and her team did everything they could to make our day go as planned. She even managed to secure some good weather! The ceremony went without hiccup and the canapés and drinks on the lawn were delicious. The wedding breakfast was created with attention to detail and catered to all our guests’ specific requirements. The result was a memorable day that was relaxed and enjoyed by all. We would recommend the services offered by this hotel if you want an intimate, stress free occasion in idyllic surroundings with fine dining. Thank you Michelle and all at the Old England, Bowness.
