Linthwaite House

Windermere, Cumbria

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


30 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


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 early March 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. You’ll also find a decked terrace on the tarn for meals in good weather, then an honesty bar on the main terrace, where you can help yourself to a gin and tonic before watching the sun set over the mountains. 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.
