We have recently come back having had our wedding at Linthwaite House. Couldn't have chosen a better venue, five star luxury with the hotel and staff who couldn't do enough for us, nothing was too much trouble. Spectacular setting and stunning grounds, our guests were blown away. Although this hotel will shortly be closing for upgrades I am sure it...

I have just returned from the hotel where my sister had booked, several weeks ago, lunch for the family. She confirmed this morning that we would be arriving for coffee and then staying on for lunch which the hotel confirmed would be ok. Arriving and ordering coffee at 1105 we were astonished when the duty restaurant manager informed us that...

We booked afternoon tea here for 4 people on bank holiday in May. The grounds are very nice, the hotel was clean and tidy and tastefully decorated. The service throughout our visit was attentive and the staff knew about the local area which is a nice touch. The afternoon tea itself was very nice, everything we were served we liked....

We've been lucky enough to stay in some lovely places in The Lakes, from camping pods to luxury hotels, and the Linthwaite may now be our new favourite! Having made a fairly last minute decision to go up to Lakeland we needed to find somewhere dog friendly to stay for one night. It was my hubbie's birthday, so I decided...

We enjoyed a most relaxing four days in this hotel which deserves all its accolades. Our room on the ground floor was very peaceful and spacious and suited our needs with a very good bathroom and a pond to look out on providing a pleasant scene. Where this hotel shines is definitely the quality of staff, who offer a friendly,...

A very special place with old world comforts, impeccable service and the type of pampering I've never enjoyed at hotels three times the price. This old manor house sits high over Lake Windermere with gorgeous views, beautiful gardens and warm inviting public spaces. Our room was very large and extremely comfortable. The bath room was remodeled to the latest style....

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.
