About Linthwaite House
What the Press say
"If petrol station flowers and a lacklustre card have landed you in hot water on Valentine's Day in the past, this year a more luxurious dip could ensure the path to true love runs smoothly. There can be few pleasures in life finer than sitting in a bubbling hot tub with a chilled glass of wine watching the sun set over a breath taking view of mountains and a sparkling lake.
But this February 14, that's exactly what one lucky couple will be experiencing in the elegant luxury of Linthwaite House. Set in a quiet location near Windermere, this romantic retreat, a member of the Pride of Britain consortium of independent hotels, is rapidly growing in popularity as a wedding venue.
Its charm comes not only form its handsome appearance and home-like hospitality, but the unique experience of staying there. From the open log fires and sumptuous sofas of Linthwaite's lounges and conservatories, its opulent bar and mind boggling wine list - attention is given to the tiniest detail.
Brightly coloured wellington boots line the hall to enjoy the hotel's pretty grounds or you can settle in with a jigsaw, a board game or a borrowed book and wile away the afternoon in tranquil comfort.
A programme of endless refurbishment means the hotel's rooms are constantly updated. Good quality furnishings, beautiful fabrics in muted colours and thrilling mod cons give you an urge to bounce on the bed with excitement when you enter the room.
Lovebirds can settle in with a romantic DVD, play special songs on an iPod docking station and even watch TV during a soak in the bath in some rooms.
Guests staying in the superb hot tub suite could easily lock themselves away from the world and soak away the aches and pains of a long walk or enjoy the exquisite views pre-breakfast.
But dodging the dining experience at Linthwaite House would be to miss something very special. Guests can dress to impress and enjoy pre dinner drinks and canapés, or simply rock up in comfy clothes and nobody bats an eyelid. Service is attentive and friendly without being intrusive and waiters appear as if by magic to top up your wine glass. With four courses of fine fare boasting indulgent options such as mosaic of rabbit confit and pan roasted diver scallops to start. Mains include roast fillet of Cumbrian beef and fillet of cod, mussel and clam risotto and tempting desserts like warm raspberry soufflé and bitter chocolate sorbet guarantee a mouth watering experience. Breakfast is just as impressive with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, a full Cumbrian or fresh fruit and cereals on offer.
When leaving Linthwaite, you do feel as though you have stayed somewhere special." Lisa Ettridge, The Blackpool Gazette, February 2012
