The newly renovated Linthwaite House offers stylish country house accommodation full of modern chic spread throughout a sprawling Edwardian pile. The hotel has its own gardens, woodland and tarn (small lake) for swimming and fishing and offers glorious views of Lake Windermere. The hotel feels like a private house with a smart but relaxed formality. Located just above the small town of Bowness, the hotel is ideally placed for those wishing to explore the charms and attractions of the Lake District.
Each of the 36 rooms is unique in size and décor, but all exhibit an understated country-luxe style with fine fabrics, palette of muted creams, sumptuous and sophisticated furnishings and sleek en-suite bathrooms. Standard amenities include Wi-Fi, HD Smart TV, minibar, tea and coffee-making facilities and most en-suite bathrooms have underfloor heating. For a touch of indulgence, options include a private veranda with hot tub, unrivalled views across Lake Windermere, attractive lounge area, double-end free-standing bath and huge walk-in shower. The soon to be open Lake Suites are dotted throughout the grounds and offer floor-to-ceiling windows, open-plan bedroom and living area and en-suite bathrooms and two can be connected together making these a good option for families.
Restaurant Stella offers sophisticated Italian dining created with delicious Cumbrian ingredients complemented by a superb wine list. Although the restaurant is only open for dinner, guests can enjoy all-day dining and a wonderful afternoon tea in the Bar & Conservatory which is a great place to relax on the leather sofas with a handcrafted cocktail taking in the beautiful views of the lake. Guests can also relax on the terrace, enjoy a game of petanque or croquet on the lawn or swim and fish in the hotel’s tarn. A wonderful base for exploring the Lake District, Linthwaite House is highly recommended.
