Historical Traveler Reviews Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel Bowness-on-Windermere
Excellent value for money,beautiful rooms
the hotel is excellent value for money,spacious room,warm and friendly atmosphere.would definitely return no if's or buts.
But the highlight of the stay was the Restaurant ,waiting staff,and most definitely the cuisine which is of the highest standard.....the best...Well Done Everyone....NO complaints whatsoever.
Have just spent four nights at Lindeth Howe and, having chosen the hotel after reading reviews here, felt it was only right to add our own comments. Location is fab, bedrooms very comfortable. The staff are extremely attentive and make your stay very pleasant. The food was great, couldnt fault any of it. The leisure facilities were good too, not huge but very quiet so we enjoyed a swim in the pool on our own every night - just like having your very own pool!!! We will definitely return in the New Year. Would recommend this hotel for a relaxing break.
The Best of the Best
If you are looking for a nice peaceful retreat, with superb food, a relaxing atmosphere and the most friendly staff you are ever likely to encounter then look no further. I have stayed there a number of times and they set a very high standard which I have yet to see equaled in the lakes.
Good, but for the money, not *that* good...
+s Good location 2 minutes drive from Bowness. The room was spacious enough and had a pleasant view across the hotel grounds. Good clean carpets and clean bathroom. Breakfast consisted of a selection of cereal, tea, toast, and full English. Nice.
-s Walls were very thin - take some earplugs! It was easy to hear the conversations of our neighbour! The pool was, as you would expect, a novelty. I just about managed to kick from one end and float to the other...

You have to go here!!!
We stayed at Lindeth Howe during the last weekend of Feb 2004 and were very impressed. The hotel itself is tastefully decorated and extras such as the pool and sauna are the icing on the cake! The staff are very attentive and nothing seems too much trouble. The highlight of the weekend was the delicious food - every meal was wonderful! We enjoyed delights such as game terrine, peppered venison and sea bass and the 'afters' were excellent (bitter dark chocolate tart and sticky toffee pudding!)The food was also really well presented. I would not hesitate to recommend Lindeth Howe and am sure that we will pay it another visit in the future
Excellent food and service
We stayed here February 2004. It was absolutely excellent. The staff are very good; from the moment you check in and they show you around, to the (sometimes over!) attentative service in the restaurant. The location is very nice, up a hill from Barrow in Windermere harbour, then tucked away down its own long driveway. Room was good size- ours having one double and one single bed. The whole hotel is nicely decorated and the (little but quiet) pool with sauna are very nice.
Even the sunbeds are free. The food was absolutely superb. We had the DBB option and a 5 course meal is included. Canapes (duck spring roles) are served in the lounge. Starter for me was Seabass (my wife had a melon), followed by a soup or sobet. We both then had the red snapper with a chilie and kiwi chutney, saffron potatoes and asparagus tips.
Dessert was a poached cinnamon pear with strawberries, brandy snap and what tasted like almond ice cream. Coffee and petit fois were taken in the lounge. Put it this way- I would go back and pay for myself again, soon!
What a superb New Year
We stayed for New Year 2003/2004 on a 3 night break. This lovely country house with roaring log fires, along with the Proprietor Stephen and his excellent staff made us so comfortable that we simply didn't want to leave. The restaurant, service and food were superb a prefect setting for the 7 course New Year dinner, followed by a Piper, champagne, tatties, neeps and haggis, plus a wee dram. Our icing on the cake was the weather. On New Years Eve morning we took advantage of the guided walk led by Peter, the countyside was magical - everwhere covered in thick white frost and then just to complete the Christmas card scene early evening we had a heavy snowfall. Worth every penny!
Nice country retreat
Set in it's own grounds complete with ponds and lovely garden it's not difficult to relax here. Room was spacious. The food must be good because we couldn't get in!, evening resturant was booked out for both nights we were there. Breakfasts are really good. Staff pleasant enough. Also has a bird avairy which is a first for any hotel i have stayed at. If you take a walk out make sure you have some polos as the horses in the nearby fields really like 'em.They also have a a funny cat called Lindy..i'd certainly stay here again.
A true English Gem
After a long flight from the states arriving in Manchester, and then making the 2 hour drive to Windermere, what a delightful find! We met English friends here for a 3 day stay in the Lake District. They were just as equally impressed with the overall ambience of the property, former home to Beatrix Potter. The rooms were comfortable, and the cuisine was top notch. Having chosen the MAP plan, we found it to be a bargain, complete with full-English breakfast and 4 course dinner menu.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to experience the true flavour of the Lake District.
A beautiful, relaxing and lovely hotel. Food and service were faultless. Stayed in Room 9 overlooking the lake and lovely gardens. A special place for special occasions.

... But a 1/2 day jaunt by Australian distances. I'd booked a cheap B&B as I would only be there 1 night and the next day I met up with a second cousin (or is that 1st cousin once removed??). Anyway, Marlene's grandfather and my grandfather were brothers. Marlene has always kept in contact with her "Uncle Billy", but this was the first time we'd met. After visiting for awhile over a cup of tea, we went to the Horwich Parish Church cemetery to look at a family grave. ...
... and we had a second stop there. Again it was very busy with loads of tourists and their big camera's. We like Bowness as it has a number of shops both independent and chain and the narrow streets and Lakeland architecture is very pleasing to the eye. The road from Bowness to Cark has some amazing houses lining it and surprisingly a lot of them for sale (or is it surprising given the current economy?) And then we ...
... over Morecambe Bay. We still couldn't find a site we liked the look of so continued on towards Kendal. 1.5 miles out of town and there it was Grate Farm. A little CL that was totally empty. So another night in a lovely location with views over the surrounding hills. As an added bonus for Jayne the farm hosts a car boot on Sunday mornings. Hope it doesn't start too ...
... Windermere and watched a ferry like we caught yesterday. We stayed up the top soaking in the view for about 1/2 hour and then walked back down again. Feeling like we had earned morning tea I asked the lady at the post office, where I bought a calendar for mum, for a recommendation for tea and cake! We then found ourselves at Renoir's Coffee House where all the delights are home made. Jason and I hade a slice of the ...
... I am sitting in our little room with the late afternoon sun streaming in through the window as I blog. It wasn't long before we were out and about in the sunshine. We decided to have a ferry ride on Lake Windermere and so caught the 2:30pm red line ferry return to Ambleside. It was a tad windy on the ferry, but the surrounding countryside was lovely, lots of ...
