We stayed at Linthwaite House for 3 nights in January and had a great time. The room was nice, not massive, but was clean and had all we wanted. We ate in the restaurant the 3 nights we we're there and it was really good. There was the odd occasion when the flavours weren't quite there but that was a rarity. The presentation and service was faultless! The staff were helpful but not overbearing (which is a hard medium!) and always on hand to help with all important wine choices. Of which there are many thanks to there superb (and award winning) cellar selection. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere. Formal and with the feeling of it being an occasion but not stuffy thanks to a good mix of guests and the staff not afraid to have a joke if the right moment presented itself.
The grounds are pretty special too, what with the view of Windemere, and the Tarn just up a well marked path (which was frozen when we visited but still beautiful). We were sad to leave as by the 3rd day we were just getting into our daily routine of a very nice filling (but not greasy breakfast), a day out exploring then back to Linthwaite for a Gin and Tonic and a great meal.
I keep mentioning the staff but they really did make our stay so much better, thanks to there warm welcome, always being helpful and friendly and above all always trying to make our holiday really special. There are more expensive hotels in the area to stay at but I doubt they'd be as welcoming and enjoyable to stay at as Linthwaite.
