Love at First Sight

If you are looking for the ultimate setting in which to celebrate your love, we invite you to explore the luxury properties within the Leeu Collection. With our three pillars: Art, Gardens and cuisine offering the keys to unlock the secrets of the valley.

Your Stay

Linthwaite House, a 36-room contemporary country house hotel in the heart of the Lake District, is set in established gardens and well-maintained private woodland grounds. Linthwaite House is situated on a hilltop overlooking Windermere, making it the perfect base from which to explore the scenic surroundings (the Lake District is a UNESCO World Heritage Site). Enjoy a bracing walk or bond over a bottle of wine in front of a crackling fire, both with views of the lake and surrounding fells. Linthwaite House offers luxurious accommodation, with stylish, individually designed bedrooms and bathrooms, many overlooking the lake and manicured gardens as well as the surrounding hills and mountains.

At the Italian-influenced restaurant, Stella, couples can savour dishes based on locally sourced and organic produce highlighting the best of the Cumbrian region and season. The Bar & Conservatory offers handcrafted cocktails, an all-day dining menu and afternoon teas.

Attention to detail is key to the unrivalled Leeu Collection experience, where sundowners with a view, fine dining and a romantic turndown set the mood. The clued-up concierge team is always at hand to help you plan the perfect day out and can arrange for professional babysitting services if required. If you’d prefer to cocoon in the comfort of your beautifully appointed room, choose a delicious meal for two from our in-room dining menu or select a movie to watch, complete with popcorn.
