New 'Windermere Lodge'
We have an exciting time ahead at Tower Wood with the new 'Windermere Lodge' accommodation being built during 2013-14. Some areas of the grounds may be unavailable during the coming months, mainly the lawned areas to the front of the lounge. Please be assured this will not impact on the wide range of activities available. Keep an eye on the photos on the right and updates here to see how work progresses, but if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
An artist's impression of the finished project, viewed from the front door of Tower Wood's Main House, is at the top of the 'Windermere Lodge Progress' images on the right.
