Are we one of the Best Hotels in the Lake District?

Our aim is to be the best unstuffy hotel in the Lake District, if not the world! Prior to departure we leave a comment sheet in every room to see how we are living up to that aim – here are some of the recent comments:

A beautiful peaceful environment which is exactly what we wanted. To feel properly ‘away’ from busy city life. This break at Linthwaite did exactly that”.



12th May 2016

This is our second visit to Linthwaite. The memories of our first visit brought us back, and these have been reinforced on this occasion. We love the house and the location. A great place to be and enjoy the beauty of the Lake District. The staff are a credit to the hotel”.

“We have had a wonderful stay away from the madness of the city. The grounds, particularly the terrace, are big talking points. We also were lucky enough to see deer”.

“Fabulous stay as ever – staff made me feel very comfortable as here on my own. Loved beautifully written card on arrival and the effort to get flowers and champagne to my room during breakfast”.


24th March 2016

“This has been our second visit to Linthwaite and we will certainly stay here again. We love; the setting, the views, the rooms and the staff are all friendly and helpful. Then of course we come to the food, we cannot speak highly enough of the quality and presentation of the food from breakfast to the evening meals. We have not as yet sampled the afternoon tea or walked up to the tarn, so we already have a reason to return and look forward to it”.


22nd March 2016

“Warm welcome. Helpful and friendly staff, always very professional – we feel valued. Peaceful location with beautiful views and interesting grounds. All rooms most tastefully decorated and furnished – always cosy too! Cuisine – this is fine dining at its best. Interesting menus, food cooked and presented to highest standards. Extensive wine list to support dining. You have a very successful hotel of highest standards – keep it up”.



20th March 2016

“We were here for a wedding and absolutely loved our time at this beautiful hotel and stunning location. The thoughtfulness of the staff and kind little touches really impressed us. We also dined in the hotel where the food and service was exemplary. I really liked watching the sunset over the lake while drinking a Lakes gin and tonic recommended by your waiter”.


18th March 2016

“As usual the staff have been excellent, professional but not stuffy. The hotel spotless. After 25 years of coming to Linthwaite it has never been a let down”.



17th March 2016

“Our main reason for coming was that our last visit here was memorable. Linthwaite is a haven of tranquility. The staff are all friendly, welcoming and each is superb at their job. The food is the most delicious and beautifully presented that I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying, and in 67 years that’s an awful lot of meals!

The beds are comfy, the rooms so well appointed and everywhere is immaculate. I have recommended Linthwaite to everyone I know. The views from here are breathtaking. I walked round the tarn yesterday, sat in the delightful summerhouse then gazed long at the awe-inspiring view of the lake. Haven on earth”.

“This is by far the best hotel we have ever stayed in, plus we have the added bonus of having got married here some 7 years ago. We have now stayed in both the hot tub rooms and feel they are a great addition to the hotel. The food is absolutely exquisite, your chefs do you proud. We will continue to stay with you as we are yet to find a hotel to top this”.
