About Lindeth Howe

The Beatrix Potter connection

If you’re looking for a hotel in the Lake District with a unique history where you’ll receive a warm welcome, choose Lindeth Howe, once the home of English writer Beatrix Potter. As a team, we strive to ensure all our guests from wherever in the world they come from have a wonderful holiday and are excited to return time and time again.

While our 30-plus bedroom hotel is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a day of exploring the Lake District National Park and beautiful surrounding area. Our lounge and bar area maintains our Beatrix Potter connection and is also a great place to enjoy a before or after-dinner drink with friends and family. Non-residents are always welcome.

We have been awarded the 'Cyclist Welcome', the 'Walkers Welcome' and the 'One Step Ahead' and also our long-standing 'Gold Award' from Visit England and we proudly retain our 4-star and 2-rosette status from the AA.

The Gold award from Visit England is awarded to celebrate accommodation establishments that outperform in their category, offering exceptional quality within their star rating. The awards help guests find special places where hosts go the extra mile, whatever the size, style or star rating of the accommodation.

On the 27th of September 2021, we were very proud to welcome HRH The Earl of Wessex for dinner at Lindeth Howe along with some of the DofE awards team. The Earl had a wonderful evening and pictures to mark the occasion can be found in our history of the house section in the hallway of the hotel. What a very special moment it was to discover Lindeth Howe in the Court Circular on the Royal Family website!
