Have stayed here before and love this hotel. On this occasion, came with friends for a most gorgeous and well presented champagne afternoon tea for a friends special birthday celebration. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The terrace is lovely and has views of the lake. The grounds are very well kept and it was just a shame that... More

We had Sunday lunch here and everything was just gorgeous - the food, the service, the setting, the ambience. Excellent food. Bit pricey for drinks though. Would return for an evening meal but best to be in daylight to appreciate the setting and gardens.

Spent a fantastic 4 nights at Linthwaite from 30 May to 3rd June. Spectacular location overlooking Lake Windermere and a perfect base to explore the surrounding area. Staff and Service were faultless throughout - top quality accommodation and food which reflects the price - this is by no means a budget break (!) - but the perfect place to get... More

We stayed in the bridal suite which had a huge bathroom, separate lounge area and big sky lights which made it really bright, and perfect for getting ready with the bridesmaids on the morning of the wedding. There's even a table where we were all able to have breakfast together. It was just amazing to wake up on the morning... 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
