Linthwaite House Hotel Cumbria

“Slick, stylish yet relaxed Edwardian hotel, with gorgeous hilltop views over Lake Windemere and the fells. Good walking from the door, excellent restaurant. Ask for larger rooms with views.”

Exclusive Hotel Guru offer

Arrive at your leisure before enjoying cream tea in our conservatory with breathtaking views of Lake Windermere and surrounding fells. Join us later for a glass of Champagne with your nibbles before enjoying your four course evening dinner. Have a lazy lie in the following morning, followed by breakfast in bed. You don’t have to check out until 12noon, so just kick back and relax. Standard doubles from £310.

“If Lake Windermere is where you'd like to be, this is the place to be. With superb views across landscaped grounds to the lake and the Old Man of Coniston beyond, Michael Bevans' hotel has Edwardian-style public rooms, including an enclosed veranda with views, satisfying food and comfortable rooms. Friendly service: you are on holiday, not on parade here.”

They say

“Why do people love staying in your hotel?

They tell us it's for the peace and tranquility, service that comes out of the walls in delightfully unstuffy, no fuss way and of course the food. Oops we almost forgot it's where contemporary design meets Ralph Lauren....

What is there to do in the area or on site?

The Lake District National Park? Apart from our outdoor spa of 888 square miles, where you can run, climb, cycle, walk, orienteer, or just meditate. Indoors there are numerous fine galleries, shops, houses, and some brilliant cinemas; small intimate and comfortable. The obvious mentions are home of Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth.

What kind of breakfast do you offer?

The full English of course. Starring spicy Cumbrian sausage. There is also a buffet with various fruits, cereals, home made jams, yoghurt and many other things. In case you don't fancy English there are also waffles, pancakes, haddock and kippers. Many teas and different sorts of coffee, smoothies, freshly squeezed juice; I could go on.

Do you offer other meals? And can you recommend good places to eat out locally?

We do offer lunch and dinner. Restaurant food is I suppose gourmet, fine dining. Indeed our restaurant has been awarded 3 AA rosettes. But we also offer the Unstuffy Burger, fish 'n chips, and other simple fare from lunchtime through the day.

Which are your most popular room types, and why?

The one with the hot tub outside is the most popular. We have two rooms with private hot tubs. Also, the Loft Suite (it has a huge bath which takes 20 minutes to fill and is perfect for two! Otherwise the Lake View rooms go first, but there are so many different types of rooms to suit all pockets.
What message would you like to give Hotel Guru readers?

Come and put you feet up! We love feet on cushions, not just on the floor.”
