Hello and good wishes to everyone.


We hope you are all keeping safe and well and looking forward to brighter times ahead. It’s been a barren time without any live music.

With fingers crossed, the Jazz Break will go ahead in November with Tom’s Trio and our guests Andy Mackenzie and Alan Barnes.

There have been big changes at the Hotel during Lockdown. The Burnside Hotel has now been re-branded as the 5 Star Lakes Hotel & Spa. The hotel is still owned and run by the same friendly and helpful team we all know.
Over the last six years, eight million pounds has been spent developing the Hotel.
You will see major changes since you last stayed there, as we did when we arrived two weeks ago. 
There are now 42 Rooms & Suites with Hot Tubs and more new ground floor bedrooms.
A breathtaking cream, Italian Marble floor runs from Reception round to the lounge and grand staircase.
The outside patio has doubled in size and is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the stunning view.
If you are arriving by train, the Hotel's Bentley will pick you up at Windermere Station, and during your stay, will drop you down in Bowness anytime up to 8.00pm
We are continuing to hold our Jazz Breaks in these luxurious surroundings and  the next one  will go ahead on November 15th-17th with John, the Tom Kincaid Trio and our guests Andy Mackenzie and Alan Barnes. (see end of newsletter for details)
We are intending to start up our regular Sunday lunchtime gigs at The Farmers Arms, Bispham, nr Parbold in the Autumn. The Pub has new owners who are keen for us to restart after some building repair work has been completed.

It's Been A Long, Long Time which seems appropriate at the moment!
It certainly has been a long time!
Cheers for now
