Lord of the lake
Wrapped in manicured gardens with views over Lake Windermere, Linthwaite House delivers 21st-century sophistication amid a rugged landscape. Rocky mountains and grassy fells – the sort eulogised by local poet William Wordsworth – loom beyond the lake, but this pocket of Edwardian domesticity lets you admire Nature at your leisure, sipping G&Ts as you watch Victorian steamers cruise across the lake. There’s nothing antiquated about the interiors, however: they’ve been swept into the present by bold patterns, fine fabrics and the owner’s personal art collection. Restaurant Stella adds a worldly finish, pairing ambrosial Italian flavours with the best of the Cumbrian countryside.
