Bawd Hall
Luxury Self-Catering

In common with other accommodation businesses, Bawd Hall is currently closed as a result of the coronavirus.  We are preparing to re-open on 4 July, which is the earliest re-opening date for the hospitality sector including accommodation. Further guidance is scheduled to be published by the Government on 15 June and VisitBritain plan to launch their customer confidence scheme on the same date. Businesses will be invited to prepare and submit risk assessment information so that they can receive a Mark that they can display showing their compliance with all necessary measures.  

If you have specific dates in the future when you would like to come, please get in touch either by telephone to the owner, Alison Evens on 01900 828189, by email to or by completing the on-line booking enquiry form on our availability and prices page  Where dates are available, we will hold those dates for you as a provisional booking with a view to confirming your booking and taking payment once it becomes clear that you will be able to travel to the Lake District.
