Our beautiful hotel sits on a gently sloping hillside above Lake Windermere. It is as gorgeous inside as out. Period details that deserve a place in a building with such a great history as ours, blend seamlessly with the stunning new contemporary design of our lounges and bars. Think of it as the set for your big day - in which you are the star.
Lindeth Howe was built as a summer holiday home in 1879. The owner rented the house out to friends for holidays amongst them were the Potter family. From 1902 to 1930, Beatrix Potter published her famous children’s stories and two of these stories, Timmy Tiptoes and Pigling Bland, she illustrated them whilst staying at Lindeth Howe. In 1915, after the death of her father, Beatrix Potter bought Lindeth Howe for her mother, Helen Potter to live in, various other owners followed Miss Potter until we came along in 1998 and here we remain.
Will the AA rosette cooking steal your heart? Or, will the incredible backdrop of our 6 acres of private gardens for your wedding photos seal the deal? It's these elements, plus many others, that make it your perfect destination.
We use packages in our brochures to show you a little of what we have to offer, but remember, everything will be tailored around you, we believe that every couple is unique and so each wedding should be too! If you don’t want something that is included in the package, we simply take that away along with any costs involved, don’t worry, we don’t make you pay for things you don’t want. We are with you every step of the way, from your first meeting to when you are checking out the day after your wedding, to make sure you have the perfect day, in the perfect venue with - most importantly - the perfect partner! We don’t ‘hand you over’ to the ‘operations’ team for your big day, we get to know you through the planning of your special day, and we treat all our weddings like it was one of our own family getting married.
If all the above is how you see yourself being looked after during the planning stages and on your special day then pick up the phone and give us a call to make an appointment with Liz or Clare, we would be happy to welcome you to join us for a cup of tea and a chat, have a look around the hotel and see find how Lindeth Howe can become part of your very own unique love story.
