The captivating country house. The magical hillside setting. The inspiration for Beatrix Potter. And now? The small luxury hotel with an afternoon tea to die for...

Lindeth Howe’s magical hillside setting, surrounded by six acres of mature gardens – gently sloping lawns with pockets of woodland – and commanding stunning views of Lake Windermere to the Cumbrian fells beyond, was a source of inspiration to its previous owner, beloved children’s author, Beatrix Potter. Today, Lindeth Howe is one of the highest rated 4-star hotels in the Lake District.

The fine dining restaurant at Lindeth Howe enjoys an enviable reputation for delicious food and attentive service and has previously been crowned ‘Lake District Restaurant of the Year’ by Lake District & Lancashire Life Magazine.

In additional local sightseeing tours of the Lake District, golf, fishing, lake cruises, water sports, horse riding, mountain bike hire and guided walks can all be arranged for you. The honeypot village of Bowness-on-Windermere is within easy walking distance.
