What can guests enjoy when staying in the Bowness-on-Windermere area?
The Lake District, which is also known as The Lakes, is a mountainous region in the county of Cumbria in the northwest of England. A popular holiday destination, with its lakes, forests and fells (hills or mountains) providing a platform for many outdoor activities, the area is famous for its spectacular scenery. Recently there has been a shift in offerings as the area positions itself as an epicurean destination – craft brewers, distillers, coffee roasteries, cheese larders, farmers’ markets and excellent restaurants abound.
Where can guests enjoy food and drink?
Linthwaite House, Leeu Collection’s contemporary country house hotel in the heart of the Lake District, is delighted to announce that Michelin-starred chef Simon Rogan will take over its restaurant in October 2019, opening Henrock (henrock.co.uk). With stunning views over Linthwaite’s immaculately landscaped gardens, Henrock will showcase natural, seasonal ingredients in a relaxed and elegant setting. The restaurant is named after Hen Holme, a rocky outcrop protruding from Windermere that is often visible from the terrace of Linthwaite House.
Linthwaite House also has a Restaurant:
Linthwaite House is part of the following Inspirations:
"Originally a family home, Linthwaite House retains that cosy, unstuffy feel that some country houses lack and is the perfect getaway for the walkers amongst us (if you can bear to leave such a lovely hillside garden retreat). This gabled Edwardian home with spectacular views over Windermere is located superbly for those who like to blow the cobwebs away from the old year and welcome in the new with a hearty pint and a good old trek. Step out of the house and walk in pretty much any direction for scenery to gladden the heart. Relax over books and newspapers in the conservatory after your walk, pint and luxurious bath and then throw on your gladrags for the party. A classic, no pressure getaway."
"The “green lanes” above Lake Windermere are very popular for pony-trekking and ideal day out if you’re staying a few days at Linthwaite House, a picturesque hotel that overlooks the famous lake. Linthwaite has all the charm of an early twentieth-century family home but with a small dark bar at its centre and a lovely conservatory for when the weather outside isn’t perfect. Mike Bevans, the owner, admits to falling in love with the building as soon as he saw it, and he’s deliberately decorated a hotel that he as if it were a family home with all the eclecticism that entails. Just an eight-minute drive north along the lake brings you to Lakeland Pony Treks in the Troutbeck Valley, a small friendly operation that offers everything from a half-hour session round Limefitt Park to half-day treks on the bridleways of the surrounding fells, plus a full-day trek which includes a well-earned pub lunch halfway through. With virtually no use of the surrounding roads, this is one of the best ways to see some of the loveliest scenery the Lake District has to offer."
"Perched on a hill overlooking Lake Windermere, Linthwaite radiates serenity as soon as you park your car. There’s a real fire burning in the grate at reception, comfy chairs and lake-view bedrooms. During January the hotel runs a “lighter choice" menu for those who want to avoid fat and sugar. Freshly prepared fruit and vegetable juices – a personal enthusiasm of Mike Bevans the owner - are available every morning to cleanse the system. The hotel will also arrange in-room aromatherapy detox massages and for those who feel the need for a more active form of detoxification, a book of local walks has been specially commissioned for the hotel by renowned local walking expert Marc Richards. Linthwaite began life as a family home and still has the ambience of your own personal weekend retreat. The decor is eclectic, much as you might find someone's house, but its been cleverly matched to create a thoroughly relaxing interior. The food is excellent too. The one problem you’ll have is eschewing the seven-course tasting menu in favour of something lighter."
"Linthwaite House is a gracious early twentieth-century weekend retreat outside Bowness, which readers of Arthur Ransome's Swallows and Amazons will recognise as the lakeside town of 'Rio'. Bowness On Windermere is also home to the World of Beatrix Potter attraction. It is easy to imagine scenes from her books and Arthur Ransome’s while looking out over Lake Windermere from the gardens of Linthwaite House."
"Head to this hotel in the Lake District for Christmas lunch and taste for yourself the modern British cuisine that is gaining Linthwaite House a formidable reputation for culinary excellence. Book the four-night “Luxury Christmas Break” - the celebrations get going here from 23 December - and enjoy some rather more imaginative festive fun, including a casino evening and a winter cruise on the lake."
"Overlooking the lake described by Wordsworth as “sublime and beautiful” this hideaway sits in 14 acres of gardens and woods. The luxurious loft suite takes romance to another level literally bringing the starlit sky into your bed. With wonderful views of the lakes the restaurant serves some of the best food in the area with a terrace for alfresco dining or sunset cocktails."
"The Lake District is famous for its fantastic walking country, so why not bring your dog along too? Book into Linthwaite House Hotel and your dog will enjoy the break as much as you do. The hotel has allocated two ground floor rooms for dog owners and can lay on food and water bowls, a blanket, lead and scoop bags. It also provides advice on the best local dog walks and dog-friendly pubs. Dogs are charged at £9 a night."
