Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel Tours

Once described as “seamlessly elegant” by The Daily Telegraph, Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel is indeed one of the best hidden gems in the English Lake District. Built as a summer home for a wealthy mill owner in 1879, it’s located just outside the quaint village of Bowness-on-Windermere and set among 6 acres (2.4 hectares) of stunning gardens and woodland. The four-star country hotel overlooks the largest lake in Cumbria and boasts 34 tastefully decorated and luxurious guest rooms and two AA Rosette dining rooms (famous for their tasty afternoon tea), which are open to nonresidents. Other amenities include an indoor heated pool, a sauna, beauty and holistic therapy rooms, and a fitness room.

What makes Lindeth Howe so famous, besides its spectacular setting, is its previous owner, who was none other than famed author Beatrix Potter. She penned and illustrated two of her famous children’s stories, Timmy Tiptoes and Pigling Bland, while staying at Lindeth Howe between 1902 and 1913.

Practical Info

Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel’s guest rooms come equipped with bath, shower, tea- and coffee-making facilities, free Wi-Fi, hair dryer and a digital flat screen TV with radio. The hotel is located in the heart of Lake District National Park, just 1.5 hours north of Liverpool and Manchester via the M6 and the A591.
