Balla Wray 1979 To 1981 - a Memory of Balla Wray.

I lived with my family at Balla Wray between 1979 and 1981 we moved from the Red lion inn in Hawkshead cumbria and at that time Balla Wray was a Country house hotel where people would stay for a week each time. The cost was £60.00 for Dinner, Bed and Breakfast! for the week.
My father Tony Poole converted the cellar into a bedroom for my sister and I as there was no bedrooms available during the summer months for us . My brother had a bedroom on the top floor

My mother and father had a large motor boat housed in the boat house and we all went out on the lake many times.
The cottage in the grounds was used as a holiday cottage .
Wonderful memories of a beautiful home with fabulous gardens and views .
