The newly built Daffodil Hotel & Spa opened on the 21st July 2012 and is owned and run by the Harwood and Brady families. The driving force behind the hotel’s redevelopment was the late Tom Harwood, a builder and hotelier in the area for over 40 years, having owned and developed the Stonecross Manor in Kendal, The Damson Dene Hotel at Crosthwaite and the Craig Manor Hotel in Bowness which is still owned by the family. The Daffodil has several family suites combining one room with an Emperor size bed and an adjoining room with two further twin beds. The best bit? Stunning views from both.
