“Gorgeous AfternoonTea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Booked in for afternoon tea on a beautiful sunny afternoon and we were not disappointed. We were met in the car park by the female manager and we asked to sit outside in the garden. She was very accommodating and put cushions out on the chairs for us before taking our order. When the tray of tea arrived with the three tier stand of cake and sandwiches we were amazed at the variety, quantity and quality of what were were given. The pot of tea was huge with ample milk and extra water. There was a selection of four types of sandwiches all of which had beautiful fresh bread. Then we moved onto meringues, coffee cake, scones with jam and cream, biscuits, short bread, all of which seemed home made and so fresh. Well worth a visit to taste there delights and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

I think we brought the average age down in the hotel by 'a number of years' during our stay - but it was lovely. The staff were all friendly and welcoming - room was spotless, view was gorgeous - nothing to fault any of it! My only niggle would be the lack of toast at breakfast - but when I asked for more it was brought without delay. I would stay again.

Thanks to good reviews on Tripadvisor we opted for Lindeth Fell Hotel near Windermere. It is beautifully situated with a view overlooking the landscape. It is quite pricey, but the rooms and service is outstanding. Try the master bedroom "Grasmere" which we had - its is in deed "a room with a view" if anything ever was! People come here only to eat in the evenings, where they have a different menu every evening. We were not disappointed..

Room Tip: Grasmere suite is recommended

This Hotel is simply first class in every respect. The Location is wonderful, the service is superb and the staff are friendly and helpful. Such a relaxing place to be and a perfect location for exploring the delights of the Lake District. We couldn't recommend it more highly.

Room Tip: Pick one of the rooms with the super views over Lake Windermere.

This is not a hotel.It is a wonderful enchanted country house where the owners have invited you to share their home.You are greeted with a sincere,genuine warm welcome,shown personally to your room and given a brief but comprehensive insight as to where things are.
The room was spotlessly clean,comfortable bed and quality furnishings.Tea and coffee facilities were plentiful.To sample the variety of teas would have entailed a much longer stay!The bathroom was so white and bright that sunglasses should be an accessory.

Now the view!If I live to be 100 years old I cannot imagine anything to surpass the views over the extensive gardens and Lake Windermere.No wonder the Lake District inspires artists.

Public lounges are filled with antiques and decorated with ornate paintings.Ample reading matter is available.

Food is excellent.Choices are numerous.The breakfast menu runs to a couple of pages.Three slices of Cumberland ham,topped with two poached eggs set me up for the day!

In the evening sit outside on the terracing,breathe in the air and use your right arm for sampling the alcholic beverages on offer.

Last but not least-the staff.There are insufficient adjectives to describe them,but here are a few;warm,personable,helpful,smiley.Nothing is too much trouble.A credit to the Lindeth Fell,just make sure no-one pinches them,they would be hard to replace.

Room Tip: Don't forget the sunglasses!

The last time we were in the Lake District we stayed at a different, although thoroughly wonderful, hotel that was fully booked this year. I did a bit of research, TripAdvisor, and found Lindeth Fell. We were not disappointed. The staff/service are wonderful. We had dinner in the restaurant all three nights we were there and thoroughly enjoyed everyone. Breakfast was also just fine. The rhoodendron were in full bloom so the gardens were real visual treat. This is truly a wonderful place to stay and if we return to the Lake District, this will be our choice.

I rang here last minute to reserve cream tea for 4 of us. The lady that answered the phone was so friendly and hospitable despite it being the 'great north swim weekend'.
She arranged a table with a fabulous view and for £13.50 per person served copious amounts of tea (of which there were several choices) homemade cake, scones, sandwiches, cookies, shortbread and other belly busting things! The staff were very friendly and professional and the surroundings reminded me of an Agatha Christie novel. I loved the place but have to say you need time and a rather large appetite! Couldn't fault it!
