“the perfect peaceful retreat at christmas”
Reviewed 26 December 2013 via mobile

This is our fifth stay on the lingholm estate and the third time we have stayed at Silverhill cottage for christmas.
Home from home so much so you forget you dont actually live here
All the comforts of home but in the peaceful tranquil setting of one of the most beautiful places in the lake district.
I dare you to come and find fault.
Thank you Lingholm.

This was our second visit to Lingholm and our second stay in the Swinside apartment.
Lingholm has been recently acquired, and it's new new hosts Jenny and Joe are everything you could hope for in hosts. Jenny was so friendly, she would have been welcome to come round every day for a chat and a brew.
Lingholm itself is a fantastic place to stay if you like to escape from the hustle and bustle of life, and you can feel like you are a million miles from anywhere, when in fact village or town life is only a short walk or drive away. The apartment we stayed is large, the master bedroom bed is huge, and the place feels like home (only better).

I'm writing this review with mixed feelings. On one hand I want everyone to know how amazing this place is, and on the other I want to keep it to ourselves and the select few who have already found it, and feel very protective about the place.

It won't be for everyone being remote, quiet and beautiful, but if you appreciate these things Lingholm can't fail to deliver.

Jenny and Joe have big plans for Lingholm, and if they feel the same about the place as I do, which I feel they do, this place is going to go from strength to strength, and i wish them every success with it. See you every year !

Hi Matt & Mandy,

Hope you and your family had a lovely Christmas. Thank you so much for taking the time to post a lovely review. It really does make all the hard work worth while when people enjoy staying here. We think the estate is very special and love sharing it with guests who appreciate it too.

We will make sure it doesn't lose any of its peacefulness and charm as we develop the estate.

We look forward to your next stay!

We have just returned from a stay at Lingholm Estate in Swinside apartment and already want to go back. The Lingholm estate is right next to Derwentwater and centres around a large Victorian country house within private woodland and gardens and even it's own shoreline. The apartment is part of the main house and is really with big airy rooms, huge bed and bath, high ceilings and a very well equipped modern kitchen and wifi which we found handy. In the living room a big bay window which has great views of the from of the estate lawn and woodland with the hills and mountains in the background. Jenny who runs the estate was really friendly and welcoming and made sure we knew she was there if we needed anything (which we didn't) although as the house is so big you don't get that feeling of staying at someone else's house or being in the way, it's all very private which we liked.
The private lake shore of Derwentwater is just a couple of minutes walk away and just feels so peaceful and secluded. The lake itself is outstandingly beautiful with breathtaking views from every angle which seem to take on a different character depending on the time of day and how much sunlight or mist is around. We saw lots of wildlife at Lingholm including robins, deer, plenty of pheasants and a very friendly cat! We can't wait to go back to this amazingly beautiful part of the Lake District and without a shadow of a doubt will choose stay at Lingholm again next time.
