Facilities at Lindeth Howe

Lindeth Howe Hotel is a beautiful country house hotel within a peaceful Lake District setting. Lindeth Howe sits amidst six acres of mature gardens with gently sloping lawns, woodland, a sun terrace and magnificent views of Lake Windermere, England's largest lake, and to the fells beyond.

Originally built in 1879, the inspiring surroundings of Lindeth Howe Hotel gave creative inspiration to the famous children's author and illustrator Beatrix Potter.

The Beatrix Potter library has a range of books, guides and leaflets on the area for you to browse through, as well as information about Beatrix Potter herself. The hilltop lounge with its sunny aspect overlooks the lawns with a garden door that opens up onto the terrace. And as the evening descends relax in a comfy chair in front of the log fire, and enjoy the tipple of your choice from the well stocked bar, whether it be a glass of local beer or a flute of fine champagne.

Wonderful relaxing break for our wedding anniversary

Kim N, Cleveland, stayed: October 2018

Had a great time at Lindeth Howe celebrating our wedding anniversary. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The suite was lovely, clean and comfortable and we loved the lounge and bar areas which have been recently refurbished. Food and service was excellent. We would definitely stay again!

Anon, stayed: September 2018

Strange to find no obvious reception (the room itself is hidden by the front do and not well signed - it looked like a storage area.).
The bedroom room was somewhat disappointing in cleanliness with cobwebs on the inside of the windows and hair in the bath plug blocking it.

Very upsetting experience

KW, Lancashire, stayed: August 2018

We spent almost 300 on a one night, afternoon tea, dinner, B&B stay. Afternoon tea and dinner were lovely. Disturbed around 3.30 am by people coming in to the room next door.. TV blaring etc. Eventually had to bang on their door. We're convinced it was hotel staff but hotel claims not. Very poor and disappointing final reply from hotel manager. Ignored my request to reimburse accommodation cost for the night (I'm happy to have paid for dinner).. even Premier Inn would have offered that with no quibble. We saved up for this one night as a 50th birthday treat.. and it was ruined.. hotel manager seems unable to appreciate how upsetting it is. Am sending a final letter to Stephen Broughton MD.

David P, Gwynedd/Gwynedd, stayed: April 2018

Very imposing hotel in a nice setting. Attentive welcoming staff, large comfortable bedroom, very good dinner and afternoon tea. We would certainly recommend it. We booked through offpeak luxury and got a very good price.
