The hotel has been run by the Berry family for more than 60 years and its redevelopment is set to be the largest at Low Wood Bay for over 150 years.

Winstanley is a former kitchen manager at Low Wood Bay and has served as a senior catering lecturer at Wigan and Leigh College for the past seven years and now returns to the hotel.

Sanders has been with English Lakes for over 22 years and has played an integral role in developing The Wild Boar’s reputation by making full use of Lakeland’s natural larder and producing innovative menus.

General manager of Low Wood Bay Resort Hotel & Marina, Nevil Jeffery says: “These are two key appointments which will help shape the future of the resort’s kitchen and catering teams as we grow.”
