“LOVED IT !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2010

I found this hotel on the internet and having read the reviews decided to give it a go. Although we know Windermere quite well we have never really stayed in this area.
Well what a find...! its situated just outside busy Windermere in the Bowness area but is a little "Oasis". The hotel is quite high up the hillside so has fantastic views of Windermere Lake and further over to "Coniston Man" in the distance. The morning sunshine and evening sunsets were beautiful. It is set in 7 acres of landscaped gardens including a small tarn with beautiful water lilies which you are welcome to wander around.
The hotel has only 14 rooms but I think that this adds to its charm. Many of the people we spoke to were repeat guests who have been returning for years. We had the "Thirlmere" room and although it wasnt huge it was very well furnished with ensuite but being on the front of the building we had views to die for. We loved it.
The staff were more than helpful and you were treated like a personal house guest in a lovely county house. The food was excellant with a choice of at least 5 starters and main courses each night. There were 5 courses including coffee and mints at the end. Breakfast was from cornflakes and fruits to the full english with a delicious home made marmalade (made by the owner !) for your toast. We bought 3 jars to bring home it was that good.
We found the hotel to be delightful and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If you like peace and quiet in a tranquil setting with good food and fantastic views... give this a go. We will definately be repeat guests very soon.
Oh and for anyone who cant leave their Laptop at home they have free Wifi too...
Thank you to all the staff for making our few days so enjoyable.

My wife and I stayed at the Lindeth Fell Country House to celebrate a wedding anniversary and my birthday.
The location: about one mile outside Bowness so too far too walk out into town. Easy to find with Sat Nav.
The hotel: lovely old country residence set up on an elevated position with good views towards the west, with partial views of Lake Windermere through the fir trees. You walk into a panelled hall which sets the atmosphere for this family run hotel. In the winter (Oct onwards) there will be a fire in this hall. You will quickly feel there is some RAF connection, this coming from Mr Kennedy, (who I believe retired after many years in the service as Air Commordore), but who died quite recently
The hotel is run by the Kennedy family assisted by several really nice young people of various nationalities, who all make you very welcome. The atmosphere is one of informality. Mrs Kennedy is lovely and so are two of her daughters who run the hotel.
Parking: adequate and very secure
The rooms: beautiful and well appointed without being over the top. Bathrooms are very good withy super power showers. There is an on-going refurbishment program (not that you would know) to ensure the hotel is kept up to modern standards. Flat screen TV's to the rooms. Carpets very clean.
The grounds: about 7 acres, and lovely to walk around
Facilities for the young ones: good golf putting extending over the lawns, plus croquet, so the children can show their competiive skills. Also a small pond to discuss water life.
Board games too for other family fun.
Food: the breakfast is really good, the Lindeth Grill is just the right size. Most tables are by the window with views towards the west.
Dinner: after pre-dinner drinks in one of the two nice lounges (with a fire in one lounge during winter),...dinner dress can be semi-formal if you wish,..or just as relaxed and casual. Both forms are not out of place
Service: excellent and cheerful without being stuffy
Value: not cheap but then this is a lovely hotel to come to
Would I come again?: most certainly,....and in the winter months,..would prove a relaxing break with the dark winter nights just to mainly hang out in the hotel, enjoy the news papers, many magazines and books,.....and just take life easy for a few days and renew your friendship with that special loved one. After a lifetime of flying the world and living in some of the best hotels there are,...this is a good home in the Lakes.

Small family run country house hotel just a few miles away from the crowds in Bowness. Set in peaceful gardens overlooking the lake. Well located to tour the area. Two very comfortable lounges with many books/magazines. Terrace/summerhouse with lake views. Bedrooms very well appointed with everything you could want. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good value for the quality and comfort. Dinner not inexpensive (£36) but also good value for the quality with service to match; breakfast and afternoon teas also excellent. Only criticism is that dining room a bit stuffy/lacking atmosphere in the evening - not sure how to improve this. Clientele mostly 'mature'.

We have been in this beautiful Hotel for 4 nights in room Grasmere, which was a really big room with a new bath, overlooking the lovely garden and Lake Windermere.
We enjoyed our stay a lot and would not go into another Hotel. Sorry, that the way is so long from Berlin, otherwise we would be there again soon in lovely sunshine.

The food was excellent, thanks for the Chef and the staff so very friendly. The Hotel is spotless clean, for us a lovely English country house Hotel.
To all of the Kennedy family a big "Thank you so very much for the lovely time we have spent in this wonderful Hotel".

We've been to the Lakes many times over the years and stayed in some great hotels, but Lindeth Fell is the tops. Now the children are grown and we wanted to celebrate our 25th Wedding anniversary we looked for somewhere special - somewhere that could provide luxury, but was small enough to provide personal attention. With it's wonderful country house decor, the gloriously intriguing gardens and stunning lake views Lindeth is wonderful - add to that the exquisite food and personally attentive service from Sheena and ALL the staff, and it becomes perfection. This was our first visit - it won't be our last......

Just back from a 3 night stay here with my mother. The hotel is set in the most beautiful location, set high overlooking Lake Winderemere. The staff are all extremely helpful, attentive and care that you enjoy your visit. Would recommend this place for those looking for a quiet get away and wanting to be looked after a bit! The hotel apparently won its award in 2009 for "customer service and value for money". I would definitely go along with that.
