We have stayed here three or four times and it never disappoints. Close to Lake Windermere, this lovely property used to belong to Beatrix Potter and now offers a superb restaurant, and very comfortable accommodation.

Having stayed here a number of years ago with family I had no hesitation in going back to Linthwaite House again. The stay three weeks ends ago was due to it being my Partner's birthday and the Saturday night stay was a surprise for him. I booked a 'Double with View' room with dinner and breakfast which was pricey but...

Beautiful place and have been going for short breaks since 2000. We recommended our daughter and boyfriend with their dog .They had the dog friendly room and the dog was made to feel as welcome as they were. Great experience. My only concern there are plans for expansion and if I am not mistaken it will be closing later this...

After some umming and ah'ing we can only give Linthwaite three stars: i.e. Average for a hotel aimed and priced to be "luxury". The welcome was peremptory at best although the duty manager did appear just in time to show us to our rooms. We had opted for a "cosy king" room and although the bed was certainly king sized...

Fantastic break. Place to go if you want something special. It was exactly what we needed: places to sit & read if you didn't want to go out. Food was excellent. Rooms were up to date with everything you could want & expect. Bathroom very new with a beautiful power shower. Staff were very helpful & friendly.

We really enjoyed our stay at linthwaite house. There was quite a lot of work going on whilst we were staying at thr hotel - clearly preparing for busy season at the moment as there was noisy tree felling going on and a skip in the car park. However, this faded in to background with the friendly and attentive service...

What a delightful experience staying in this lovely hotel with magnificent views of Lake Windermere. The first thing that welcomes you is the warming log fire as you enter 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
