Paul Hamilton is one of a team at Low Wood Bay who welcome our guests as they arrive at the Gatehouse.

Last week he was delighted to open the barrier to some stunning cars from the Hell Yeah Rally 2018 who were staying with us during the Lake District leg of their rally. Quick thinking Paul managed to capture a few images of the impressive motors before they took off to the Cumbria International Motor Show.

Breathtaking Roads and Scenery

The Hell Yeah Rally 2018 Lake District Tour set off from Alexanders Prestige in North Yorkshire on Thursday 17th May 2018. There were twenty-six cars in total on the 4-day rally. They came from all over UK and Europe, the furthest afield being an R33 Nissan Skyline GTR from The Netherlands.

Heading to the Lake District via The Yorkshire Dales, the rally took in some of the UK's most breathtaking roads and scenery. They stopped over at some remotely located pubs and several  spa hotels in the Lake District, including Low Wood Bay Here's what a couple of the rally participants thought of the roads...

"This year's Lake District Rally was great fun from start to finish. The organisers, Jeff and Tony had mapped out some amazing routes with roads and views to match anything elsewhere in Europe. We took in mountain passes with tight switch-backs and lakeside drives with views so stunning that although the focus is always on driving, we just had to pull in a few times to take it all in and take a few photos".AD, Derbyshire
