My husband and I decided to return to Linthwaite (to compensate for a disastrous summer holiday!), and we took advantage of the Autum Gold offer. We upgraded to a lovely room (number 28, which had its own front door to the front of the hotel). The decor was contemporary and comfortable, and the bedroom/bathroom were immaculate. Luxury abounds, including the Molton Brown toiletries and a thoughtful selection of teas/coffees with bottled water and fresh milk replenished daily.
We mainly chose to come back to Linthwaite for the food. It's over a year since we were there, and we didn't realise there had been a change of chef (which was quite obvious in the menu). We were slightly disappointed as we had hoped for more seasonal game to be on the menu, however, what we did have was just lovely. The waiting staff were absolutely faultless, and the attention to detail didn't go unmissed. The wine list is great too - we had two lovely wines for under £30, which is pretty good going.
We also took advantage of the leisure facilities at the nearby Macdonald Old England Hotel. We used the spa/steam room/sauna and there's even an ice room if you're feeling brave. It inevitably rains when we're in the Lakes, so this was a great fall-back activity!
The scenery is just stunning, and the grounds at Linthwaite are well worth exploring too. It's worth a visit!
