Lake District hotel set for expansion following change of ownership

UK: The Woodlands Guest House in Windermere is to add ten new rooms and take on extra staff after being acquired by Leeds-based entrepreneur John Jiang.

Woodlands currently has 15 individually designed en-suite rooms, offering guests a range of luxury single, double and triple-bed accommodation along with breakfast facilities.

The Woodlands is the second hotel property acquired by Jiang, a who last year bought the 50-room Greengables Hotel in Scarborough. Both acquisitions were made with funding from Lloyds Bank.

Jiang said: "Set in the heart of the Lake District National Park, the Woodlands Guest House is popular with visitors looking to take in the stunning scenery, or visit local attractions such as the World of Beatrix Potter, which is located just down the road. I've had a relationship with Lloyds Bank for a number of years. It had supported the acquisition of my first hotel last year, and it was the clear choice to help me with the purchase of the Woodlands Guest House. Over the coming months, we'll be looking to expand the hotel to increase the number of guests we can accommodate, in time for next summer's peak tourist season."
