From the moment we stepped through the front door and into the inviting reception hall, we felt truly and warmly welcomed. Sheena Kennedy is a witty, friendly, charming lady who did everything and more to make our visit memorable. Wet coats and shoes were put in the drying cupboard, and luggage taken up to our rooms, while she showed us around. Any request or question was cheerfully answered. Thanks also to her Mom, another wonderful lady with a great sense of humor (and who makes delicious jams and marmalades!) The rooms are lovely, with beautiful fabrics and furniture, views of the gardens and Lake Windermere, and everything is sparkling clean. One of our rooms had a small bathroom, while the other had a large one, so it just depends on the room. It feels just like staying at a friend's country house (if one was lucky enough to have a friend with a country house!) The landing for the ferry that takes you over the lake to the bus that goes to Beatrix Potter's Hill Top house is within walking distance, and the walk is lovely (uphill on the way back, so we opted for a taxi back!) We had dinner at the house one night. It seems a bit pricey at first glance, but the food, the service and the setting is so perfect and impeccably done, that it was well worth it for a little treat. The staff is great. Thanks to them all for their good humor. I would definitely save my pennies to stay here again!

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".
