Whether you are a keen fisher or just a beginner, Linthwaite is the perfect base for a Lake District fishing holiday. As well as our own private tarn, angling guests can enjoy free fishing on several excellent local game and coarse fisheries through our Windermere, Ambleside and District Angling Association (WADAA) Hotel Membership. You will need your own fishing rod licence though.
The quintessentially English game of croquet can be played on the front lawn at Linthwaite, an ideal way to spend a sunny afternoon. Take your mallets and croquet balls from the box outside Linthwaite’s front door and get started.
The French game of boules, otherwise known as pétanque, is available for all of Linthwaite’s guests. We have our own court which you can use at your leisure – just head to the box outside Linthwaite’s front door to get all you need for your game.
We have 14 acres (5.7 hectares) of private grounds, so feel free to take a leisurely stroll or, if you’re feeling more energetic, try a longer walk. A guided walk map and instructions are available for you to enjoy.
