Linthwaite has a superb location above Windermere. You only get a narrow sight of the lake itself, but it's nevertheless a great view from a great terrace with with tables for drinks and snacks. It's clearly a country house hotel, but with a modern touch. I loved the style - not chintzy and too old worldy but not ultra modern... More

My friend and I visited Linthwaite House Hotel for afternoon tea, following their instruction to find their location. Parking was plentiful and our reception was extremely friendly. The view from the patio was stunning (of course) and a board showed us the names of each mountain, adding to the enjoyment. The afternoon tea was "to die for" as my friend... More

We visit Linthwaite for an extended family lunch every year, and it's a sheer joy. Every tiny little detail has been thought of, and you come away feeling refreshed and replenished (and that's just after lunch - imagine what a stay could do!) The grounds are beautiful, and well worth an exploration, the conservatory is so comfortable to enjoy pre... More

Wonderful afternoon tea in heavenly location. We booked afternoon tea and we could not have any better experience anywhere. We ate on the terrace in the picturesque grounds overlooking Lake Windermere from aloft, the food was 1st class, the staff very attentive and location perfect. After we had eaten we enjoyed the gardens and the Hotel own tarn with a... More

We loved Linthwaite. The staff, without exception, are so friendly and helpful. The view over Lake Windermere is stunning. Do not leave without a walk through the grounds to the tarn (lake) and summerhouse. The dinners were beautiful - we didn't bother with trying a new restaurant in town on our second night, as we loved the menu so much.... More

Fantastic! You paint a great picture of a delightful English idyll. Do not forget to visit the tarn when you come to Linthwaite; so many miss out on it. Linthwaite is a haven of peace and tranquility amongst the busy summer hubub of the Lakes. Many don't even bother to leave whilst they are staying here. Come back soon, Best... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in June. It was sheer bliss. Staff wonderful. Rooms well appointed with the Molton Brown toiletries a lovely touch. Hotel grounds and views breathtaking! Dinner was an amazing experience. Will definitely be back!

My husband and I stayed here for one night and only wish it had been for longer. The hotel was amazing and we loved every second of our stay there. The staff were incredible and one in particular addressed us by name each time he spoke to us which was a nice touch. We had afternoon tea which was lovely,... More

Brilliant, thanks very much indeed. To be clear, the hotel enjoys great views but there are only 5 bedrooms with views of the lake so you need to book them fast! However, we have 30 rooms altogether and sometimes when it's hot it's good to not have a room with a view of the Lake. We hope to be able... More

2014 marked our eighteenth year of 'coming home' to the Linthwaite. It is just perfect for that wonderful relaxing experience when you need to unwind and let go. It all starts the minute you get out of the car and are welcomed by the amazing staff. Nothing is too much trouble. The food is wonderful, as is the choice of... More

Ah very true. You do pay for what you get in this life. Amazing how important the toiletries are. I know my wife measures a hotel by this standard. We use Molton Brown. We are constantly trying out new products (tough job but someone has to do it) in order to maintain high standards. Thanks very much for the great... More

One of the Lake District's best country house hotels, but unstuffy! Great views, acres of private grounds, fishing, golf nearby, hiking, walking, extreme sports all within easy access. Great food, from fine dining to the Unstuffy Hamburger! Many wines by the glass and beers from local macro breweries. Lots of staff to pamper you and help you relax. ... more   less
