Overview

Linthwaite House is an AA 4-Red-Star hotel, making it one of the AA's Top 200 hotels in the UK. High above Lake Windermere, the late-Victorian country-house hotel is surrounded by 14 acres of gardens, with its own 9-hole putting green and a spacious terrace overlooking the lake.

Being in the Lake District, it's walkers' heaven, while golfers can stroll to the nearby Windermere Golf Club, and the hotel can provide tips on local fishing spots and riding stables. Alternatively, take a 5-minute drive into Bowness-on-Windermere for watersports and adventure activities. Literature lovers can head to The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction in Bowness, or William Wordsworth's Dove Cottage, a 30-minute drive away in the village of Grasmere.

The hotel's biggest draw has to be its 3-AA-Rosette restaurant, serving modern British food prepared with fresh, local produce. According to Sawday's, "ambrosial food waits in the dining rooms", with The Michelin Guide 2015 praising cooking that is "modern and flavoursome".

All guests have complimentary access to the Old England Hotel's spa in Bowness-on-Windermere, which features a Technogym, a 20-metre pool and spa treatments (for an additional fee). The hotel also offers in-room treatments, including massages, facials and manicures (charges apply and you may need to book in advance).

The 30 individually designed bedrooms have flat-screen TVs with Sky channels and DVD players, iPod docks and free Wi-Fi. Treat yourself to a Luxury Lake View Room with outside hot tub, so you can really make the most of the vistas.
