Just returned from an overnight stay at Linthwaite House. The property is beautiful in every way, the service prompt and attentive and the food surpassed our expectations, it was yummy. We enjoyed a walk around the private tarn which again was perfect and the views across to the mountains in the distance was breathtaking. The rooms are well equipped, we...

We hadn't stayed at Linthwaite House since it changed hands and were concerned that it may have turned into a more "corporate" operation. We need not have worried as it is still charming, relaxed and luxurious. The key is the excellent staff. There are plenty of courteous, pleasant young people keen to help you enjoy your stay. We were asked...

We booked as pensioners to stay but could not make the visit so rang and asked to move our booking which the person we spoke to agreed. Subsequently this agreement was cancelled and our money taken and we then were told we could only rebook if we paid more

I reviewed this hotel in April 2012 and since then it has changed hands and as we've revisited since then I thought it time to do another. We stayed here last Thursday night (12th January 2017) taking advantage of their January sale offer of a cosy room for £190.00 for two people with dinner and breakfast. When the description used...

Enjoyed an amazing afternoon tea with friends at Linthwaite House yesterday. Food was delicious, excellent value. We were made so welcome by the very attentive staff. Hotel beautiful, very comfortable and welcoming - enjoyed our afternoon tea on sofas by the fire with glorious views over Lake Windermere to the snow-capped fells. Perfect - can't wait to return!!

We stayed one night at Linthwaite House in Jan 2017. We booked the room with a view and hot tub, and was not disappointed. Linthwaite House is luxurious, but value for money.

The Lake District is beautiful at any time of year but a dry weekend in December is as good as it gets! The Linthwaite offered a Gourmet weekend and they didn't disappoint with a very high standard of cuisine, despite what one so called 'gourmand' would have the whole lounge believe! Rooms were cosy but that's how they were described....

Lovely setting. Made to feel very welcome the minute we arrived. Amuse bouche to begin as we all sat in the lounge area followed by a well presented and tasty lunch. Will definitely return. They are apparently closing for a few months for a refit including creating a spa.

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
