We have been working with Pullwood Bay for the last few months with their website marketing, but what a difference a TV appearance can make!!
ITV and the cast of one of the UK’s favourite soaps, Coronation St, spent time filming in the beautiful surroundings of Pullwood Bay, Ambleside.
Pullwood Bay is set within a 50 acre estate across from Ambleside, on Lake Windermere. The 1/2 mile driveway takes you from the B5286 on a winding drive through woodlands and past 1 of 6 cottages which you can hire. You then get to the main house, a fully restored building which offers 12, 5 Star apartments to hire. These Award winning luxury self catering apartments offer fantastic views over Lake Windermere. With over 1/2 mile of Lake frontage, and it’s own jetty, Pullwood Bay truly is a jewel within the Lake District.
Wyke Bay, where filming took place for Gail Platt’s honeymoon destination with new husband Joe, sits on the Lake and has its own private driveway away from the main Pullwood house. Although Wyke Bay was only shown during one episode of ‘Corrie’, enquiries flooded (no pun intended!) through the Pullwood Bay website, as well as calls to ITV asking where this location could be found. Forums were also buzzing with people asking the whereabouts of this place.
Wyke Bay is to be featured again on Coronation St in the next week or so as Gail & Joe return to the Lakes for a Valentines special. We don’t want to ruin the story line, you’ll have to watch it yourselves.
Pullwood Bay can expect another hit of traffic in the coming weeks, as well as enquiries, forum rumours, and plenty of links! Thanks ITV!
