This is our favourite hotel in the lakes. The food is exceptional however some of the rooms could do with air-conditioning. We found it very hot and uncomfortable which was a pity as we love the hotel and staff. The grounds are very nice with a few short walks round the Tarn area, the views are outstanding from the terrace... More

Stayed with an extended family gathering (significant wedding anniversary). Lovely rooms, great views from terraces, and fine garden to walk around. The private dining room was an ideal room for an excellent meal, very well-paced with staff flexible about timings of courses to accommodate speeches etc. The whole weekend worked superbly for ages between babe-in-arms and 60+.

The hotel is in a lovely setting, where else could one find its own tarn with carefully and sympathetically landscaped grounds. The decor of the hotel and our particular room has been well chosen, it is clear that management maintain very high standards of refurbishment. Unfortunately, though the staff complete with impressive French service titles, do occasionally slip up, such... More

This was our fourth visit to Linthwaite and it's so good that every time you go back there's a slight trepidation it's never as good as it was before! Every time though that proves unfounded as every time it is. The welcome is always brilliant - you don't feel like you're entering a hotel but someone's home and when you're... More

we were so fortunate to get a lovely room at this gorgeous hotel in the month of august. Linthwaite sits on 14 acres of pure beauty with magnificent views on Lake Windermere.

We initially chose this hotel because it had electric car chargers (and whilst we were there we were the only users of the chargers). The hotel is a small, luxurious hotel located in the countryside just outside Bowness-on-Windermere. We booked a deal which included evening meals. The meals were not the sort of food we normal eat - they were... More

We decided to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary by revisiting the hotel where we stayed for our honeymoon. The hotel is much changed and has moved considerably up market since our visit forty years ago. The hotel was excellent, particularly the food which was better than a Michelin star hotel recently visited. This despite the fact that Linthwaite were currently... More

This hotel has lovely gardens and a wonderful view . Staff are pleasant and friendly. The hotel lacks a certain class and could be so much better- eg a requested extension cable was never delivered to the room, promised directions for a route were also forgotten about. The carpets are tired and our cosy double room lacked finesse. There is... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. Two rooms have private hot tubs. ... more   less
