Top 10 Best Hotels in the Lake District


One of the best luxury hotels to stay in the Lake District for some peace and quiet is at the Linthwaite House which is located away from the main tourist areas. Rooms are bright and airy with the large windows and is decorated with simple and elegant furnishings.

The dining room and lounge area of the hotel have a more luxurious and regal design but it’s not over the top and compliments the 4 star rating.

Guests can enjoy lots of relaxing activities such as:

  • Exploring the gardens and hotel grounds
  • Have picnics in the gardens with a picnic hamper from the hotel
  • Soak in the outdoor hot tub
  • Enjoy high tea in the dining room with spectacular views

Although the hotel is surrounded and secluded within its own greenery, it’s not shut off from the world completely. Attractions such as Beatrix Potter’s House, Dove Cottage and Grizedale Forest are about a 30 minute drive away.
