A popular Lake District Hotel is hoping for a significant expansion.

The Swan Hotel at Newby Bridge is seeking planning consent for a brand new wing that will include 28 hotel rooms, a swimming pool and spa.

Hotel bosses have lodged the plans for the three-storey extension with the Lake District National Park Authority.

The application also includes additional car parking and landscaping.

Situated close to the A590 road towards the bottom tip of Windermere, the hotel offers both hotel rooms and lodges to guests.
