The Laura Ashley Belsfield Hotel in Bowness is celebrating its most successful year since opening under the Laura Ashley brand in 2014.

Throughout 2017, the hotel on the shores of Windermere welcomed more than 16,000 overnight guests and wedding sales at the venue have consistently increased over the last two years, with winter wedding bookings growing by 75 per cent in the last 12 months.

Mario Malcharek, general manager of The Laura Ashley Belsfield Hotel, said that forward booking projections for 2018 for domestic and international visitors were ‘even more promising’.
