... after and we took a drive to Windermere for more photos and a quick walk. Everything combined to create some great scenery, the setting sun making golden the high fields, and the leave-less woods and trees. Roads and fields in the area, as well as many streams and paths were bordered by chest high stone walls that wandered as high as the snow line. Came back to see Wordsworth's grave at Grasmere's St Oswolds. Then went to buy some food from the supermarket for ...
Today was mainly a day for travelling. Breakfast again from the supermarket next to the hostel. Left relatively early for Stratford-upon-Avon. Saw Shakespeare's old family home, the site of his marital home and his grave (inside the local Holy Trinity Church). At the first home, we learnt the explanations for a few phrases, like sleep tight (beds had to be tightened) hit the hay ...
... of calm. Malc upstairs going through his collection of sunglasses, probably, Dan playing with his camera, Catherine buttering her toast... As I had come in like a ninja, due to my martial arts background, I met Daniel in the front room and shared my stress for "running late"... Thankfully calmness was not broken, Dan was a little bewildered, and like a true bug brother reassured me that we had plenty of time. We loaded up the car and now on our way to the big ...
... shop was well stocked with travel and walking gear. I was even quite taken with the Made in Cumbria shop and its array of gifts, all made locally; very difficult to not find something for yourself or as a present.
The food hall prides itself for serving only local produce and baking all their own cakes and there are food events held throughout the year with opportunities to take a course or find out more.

We packed up and cleaned the cottage for the next lucky visitors. Once the cars were full, we followed Nick and Barbara to Coniston. This village sits on Coniston Lake, which has been the site of some history. Back in the 1930's through the 60's, a father and son duo broke the world speed record on water at this lake. It is the longest straightest, deepest, unobstructed body of water in the Lake District, which made it the perfect choice for speed. First, in the late ...

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...
Good, but for the money, not *that* good.
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.
