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. Enjoy a peaceful afternoon reading the papers or having 40 winks! 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. From just £155pp.

“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?
Because we remember who they are. We’re their home from home, in a nice way. Service is everything to us, not gadgets. But of course we understand that things like wifi are as important as hot water and fluffy towels. It’s just not in your face that’s all. The welcome is so important. Come home - to a real fire.

What is there to do in the area or on site?
In the area? This is the Lake District. It’s your adventure playground or your Turner painting - you decide. On site? No need to go anywhere. We sit in 15 acres of hilltop grounds, 400’ up from Lake Windermere with views to die for. Sit on our terrace and enjoy seeing the sun go down in the West - with The Old Man of Coniston (that’s a mountain by the way) as a stunning silhouette. We also have our own tarn. Wild swimming anyone? Or fishing? We also have our very own bowles court, putting and croquet lawn.

What kind of breakfast do you offer?
Full Cumbrian. Our sausages have a little extra spice. Or you can be continental if you want to. Nearly everything is sourced on the doorstep.

Do you offer other meals? And can you recommend good places to eat out locally?
We have a talented Chef with 3 AA rosettes which puts us in the top 100+ restaurants in the UK. But it’s not all about fine food. We also do an excellent burger. Or fish ’n chips. Or a handmade homemade sandwich. You decide. Full room service too if you want to be alone.

Which are your most popular room types, and why?
Two have hot tubs. They’re popular. The Loft Suite with its own glass sliding roof for you to watch the stars is popular too. One thing - it does take 20 minutes to fill the bath for two. But our least expensive room, the red one number 1 is also very popular with previous guests. Lake view rooms are pretty popular. We have one room for families and two rooms with outside entrance where dogs are welcome.

What facilities do you have for children and can you fit extra beds in your rooms?
One family suite and we can accommodate children in some of our larger rooms.

What message would you like to give Hotel Guru readers?
Reputation is everything. We have been going for almost 25 years!”
