Unstuffy hospitality overlooking Lake Windemere

There are some places that just feel right the minute you walk through the door and Linthwaite is very much one of those. From the minute you enter the welcoming reception you feel the stresses of everyday life slip from your shoulders. I loved the attention to detail, even the corridors had... read more

My partner and I had the tasting dinner. Excellent from start to finish. Reasonable sized portions. All well worth the money. Good wine selection. Charming place to sit.

Just had an excellent two course lunch here with friends. Excellent service and food, we had coffee overlooking the Lake on a beautiful day! Definitely 5 star plus.

Went here for a birthday afternoon tea & evening meal. Amazing location overlooking lake Windermere & with a huge wrap-around conservatory to take in the views. The afternoon tea was beautifully served with a good selection of sandwiches & cakes/scones. Though once everything had been served the staff seemed to disappear & we would have to walk to reception for... More

Friendly welcome. Beautiful views and lovely gardens. Enjoyed aperitifs sitting on big squishy sofa looking down towards the garden and lake. Elegant dining room with relaxing feel. Food was presented beautifully and tastes were wonderful, obviously a great chef. The selection of breads were good and left on the table, which were hard to resist! Service of a very professional...

We ate here on two occasions as part of a couple of days well earned rest. For me its certainly a 'special' restaurant / meal in that its not something Id do on a regular basis, not because its not that good but mainly out of personal choice and unless your particularly 'well heeled' it would certainly have an impact...

Lovely afternoon, sun shining Nice hotel, view amazing Food very nice and plentiful It should be a Cumbria challenge to finish everything, nice to be able to take what's left home in a box and share with the kids! Service was efficient, polite but you did get the distinct feeling that the residents were priority, they got a little chat... More

Afternoon tea courtesy of a voucher off son & daughter in law. Lovely conservatory with fab views. Great sandwiches, sausage rolls & a selection of cakes/dessert/scones with jam & cream to die for. Couldn't possibly eat it all, but it was lovely.

If you enjoy fine dining and are in area this is the place for you. The hotel has fabulous views across lake Windermere. The first stage of the 'dining experience' is being taken into a lounge that makes the most of these views and you can even sit outside while you peruse the menu if the weather is good. I've...
