The reasons visitors come to the Lake District are the same reasons that guests stay at Linthwaite House - to experience peace, calm and a break from the routine.
If one word were to sum the Hotel up it would be unstuffy. Their services are personal, but informal, the staff are professional and unpretentious. This natural warmth and hospitality appeals to those who appreciate the finer things in life and prefer to enjoy them in their own way. Linthwaite House offers quality accommodation and is arguably one of the finest Windermere hotels.
Linthwaite House is ideally situated in over fourteen acres of its own gardens and woods, the perfect setting for a really romantic honeymoon.
Linthwaite House and the Lake District are an all-season destination, offering a host of pastimes and activities for everyone 'who has an eye to perceive and heart to enjoy'. There are gentle walks from the Hotel through the countryside and around the lake, which you can punctuate with refreshment at a cosy Lakeland inn. The peaceful tarn provides sport for the fly fisherman and the Hotel can supply tuition and tackle.
Windermere Golf Club is just a mile up the road. Just for fun, Linthwaite House has its own practice hole, putting green, and croquet lawn. You do not have to go by Shank's pony to admire the breathtaking scenery. Horse Riding can be arranged with a nearby centre and there are two Mountain Bikes for hire.
If you are looking for some retail therapy, there is some extensive treatment. There are department stores, specialist shops and factory outlets in the main towns, along with countless galleries and craft shops tucked away throughout the Lake District.
