Linthwaite House

Windermere, Cumbria

A chic hotel, informally run, with views that stretch for miles – currently closed, it reopens in June 2018 after a sparkling renovation


30 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Walkers, cyclists, sailors and climbing enthusiasts will be happy here, as will Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter fans. Linthwaite, one of the loveliest hotels in the Lakes, is soon to get even better. It is currently closed for a full renovation, but will open again in June 2018, more beautiful than ever before. Some things won’t change – Windermere will still sparkle half a mile below with a chain of peaks rising majestically beyond, and the staff will still look after you effortlessly, making sure your stay is special. What you will find is a larger conservatory with a snazzy cocktail bar attached, then tables and chairs for afternoon tea, even tasty pizzas. Best of all, are six new woodland suites with floor-to-ceiling windows, a vast open-plan sitting room/bedroom, then deep baths and walk-in showers in super-cool bathrooms. Add to that a complete refurbishment of all rooms in the main house and you’ll find this beautiful Arts & Crafts house reborn for the next 100 years. Don’t miss it.
