Newby Bride Hotel plans to expand its gym and more rooms



A POPULAR family hotel on the shores of Windermere is seeking permission to extend and improve its leisure facilities after a number of customer comments.

The Newby Bridge Hotel, just off the A590 at the southern tip of Windermere, has submitted a planning application for the construction of an extension to an existing building to provide an improved gym and changing rooms for the hotel recreation area, with guest rooms above.

The design statement submitted to the Lake District National Park Authority states: “The gym and changing room facilities have long been a source of customer feedback/complaints.

“The hotel would like to offer a gym and changing rooms that would be on par with a hotel of this size for those looking for such facilities in the hotel accommodation where they are staying.

“The first floor adds four guest bedrooms, two of which are advertised as family rooms, increasing the hotel’s offering by encouraging families with young children in the Lake District.

PLANS: The proposed plan, with the existing configuration insert

“The proposals are designed to be as unobtrusive as possible with base styling reflecting the adjacent 1997 extension to which it is attached.

“An electric vehicle charging point will be located at the proposed parking spaces indicated near the existing staff accommodation.

“The extension will be designed to be thermally efficient in accordance with building regulations due to be revised to ‘near zero emissions’ in June 2022.

When assessing the heritage impact of the proposal, the application states: “The proposed extension is remote from the main front of the hotel and due to its isolated position behind the hotel, and the lack of lines of view from anywhere other than the immediate vicinity of the building has been designed with use, interior and durability in mind rather than exterior appearance.

“It was realized early on that there was little to be gained from adding architectural embellishments and features to a building in this situation.

“The proposed extension relates to the adjacent building to which it is attached more than any other older building in the area.”

“It will have little to no impact on the overall appearance of the building from anywhere on the site.”
