You just have to go - you definitely won't regret it. The views are incredible, the food is delicious, the staff are friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble, the bedrooms are spacious and include everything you might need, and the gardens are beautiful. It was very busy when we were there, especially on the Sunday afternoon, but... More

Arrival does not disappoint (although it did take a bit of finding!) - once you are up the drive, you are greeted by the view to die for. One can sit having a drink on the patio gazing over to the hills, forests and lakes - or walk a while in the extensive grounds and sit a for awhile in... More

Linthwaite gets it right. It's elegant, luxurious, with a fantastic restaurant, beautiful views and lovely gardens, yet it's not stuffy. The staff went out of their way to make my last stay there extra special. I don't want to try anywhere else in this part of the Lake District, because I've found the perfect spot.

This is the best hotel we have stayed in for outstanding food and friendliness. We stayed at The Royal Crescent Bath the week after and the food at Lynthwaite was so much better. We are both vegan and the staff bent over backwards to feed us the best meals we have ever had at a hotel. This was our second... More

We stayed one night in a double room with Lake view. The room was perfect with a very comfortable bed. The decor was a lovely mixture of traditional and contemporary. Dinner was wonderful and we chose from a varied menu. Truly fine dining. After a peaceful night's sleep breakfast was as good as it gets. The staff were without exception... More

We stayed here for two nights and it is comforting and delightful as you can imagine. From the very professional staff to the delicious food, it could not have been better. The hotel sits above the bustle of the lakeside. It is close to all the sights but a world away in terms of peace and quiet. We asked for... More

Over the past ten years I have eaten and stayed here many times and I still keep coming back for more. As a regular my only criticism is that the menu is not changed often enough for me. I recently took advantage of the three course lunch which for £20 is great value for fine dining and also one of... More

My husband Alex and I have been going to Linthwaite House now at least once, more recently twice, a year for must be 16 years - so I write this after having had a pretty good sample of what Linthwaite has to offer! The quality of the service, food, hospitality and rooms are consistently excellent. This last weekend to celebrate... More

Thanks for the kind review and for keeping on coming back. Like so many of our regulars you appreciate the "hospitality" we try to deliver, and improve on year after year (25 now). Andy and his team is the best we have ever had and the hotel wouldn't be a success without these wonderful people. They work very hard and... More

We chose this hotel as we wanted a bit of luxury for a quick getaway whilst the children were being entertained by their grandparents. The hotel, grounds and the staff certainly lived up to expectations. They were very attentive to anything we needed, and the breakfasts were superb (home made muesli, kippers and smoked haddock all standouts for us). Ate... More

Thanks very much for your kind review. The bit about distance from Bowness is useful for other potential guests to know. It is just a mile. Kids; don't you just love them? We do, but it is a shame when some parents don't seem to worry about the effect of their behaviour on others. We hope to be able to... More
