Summer in The Lakes

Known for its awe-inspiring natural scenery, the Lake District comes alive with vibrant colours, lush greenery and blossoming flowers in the summer. 

The region’s renowned lakes, mountains and valleys create a picturesque backdrop that is perfect for outdoor activities and exploring. 

Visitors can embark on numerous trails, including the well-known Wainwright walks, to discover the diverse terrain while reveling in the breathtaking vistas. Those seeking more adventurous pursuits can make the most of the ample opportunities for hikingmountain biking and rock climbing. 

The lakes also offer excellent opportunities for boating and water sports. Rent a boat or join a guided tour to explore the serene waters of Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater or Coniston Water. Sailing, canoeing, kayaking, and stand-up paddleboarding are also popular activities for both beginners and experienced enthusiasts.

Additionally, summer is also an ideal time to spot wildlife in the Lake District. The region is home to a variety of birds, including ospreys, peregrine falcons, and golden eagles. You may also encounter red deer, red squirrels, and even an otter or two. The area is dotted with nature reserves and conservation areas that provide excellent opportunities for nature walks and wildlife photography.

Moreover, the summer months in the Lake District are filled with vibrant festivals and events. From music and literature festivals to outdoor concerts and sporting events, there's something for everyone. The Keswick Mountain Festival, Grasmere Sports and the Coniston Country Fair are just a few examples of the lively events that take place during this time.

Nestled on a hilltop hideaway in the heart of it all lies the luxurious haven of Linthwaite House, inviting guests in search of solace and sophistication amid nature's splendour. 

A mere stone's throw from the water's edge, Linthwaite House offers luxurious accommodation in the form of uniquely appointed rooms and suites, many of which overlook the lake, manicured gardens and surrounding hills and mountains. 

For guests looking for an unforgettable summer getaway in an exclusive retreat that seamlessly blends with its natural surroundings, the Suites at Linthwaite House are the perfect choice. 

The sunny Loft Suite boasts impressive proportions, designer finishes and every conceivable luxury. 

The popular Lake View Hot Tub Suite offers guests the opportunity to step onto a private veranda and relax in a hot tub while gazing west across Windermere to the Coniston Fells. 

For an exclusive hideaway in a secluded wooded area of the hotel grounds, the two spacious Junior Suites with Hot Tubs are accessible via a short buggy ride from the main building.

The pièce de résistance for a truly unrivalled summer getaway are the sought-after Fell Suites. Privately positioned within the 14 acres of Linthwaite House grounds, the spacious suites offer open-plan bedroom and living spaces complete with floor-to-ceiling windows for enjoying the exquisite natural surrounds. As with the Junior Suites, Fell Suite guests are transported to their exclusive slice of paradise on a golf buggy down a gravel lane past the tarn. From there, you can step out onto your private terrace, where you will be greeted by the uplifting scent of meadowsweet that fills the air, and lulled into relaxation by the gentle birdsong and rustling of leaves. 

What’s more, each Fell Suite is able to interconnect with a Fell Suite with Hot Tub, which provides the same unparalleled comfort and breathtaking views, but with the added indulgence of its own private outdoor hot tub. 

For those wanting to explore The Lakes with their fur companions this summer, a selection of the Fell Suites can accommodate small dogs with prior arrangement.

Whether you're in search of adventure or relaxation, summer in the Lake District offers something for every visitor, and Linthwaite House provides the ideal base from which to fully experience it.
