What our guests have to say

  • Just lovely! Really enjoyed our stay at Lindeth Howe. I stayed with my 11 year old daughter, my friend and her 3 year old grandson. Having a near 3 year old with us I was a tad worried but alongside a 11 year old Beatrix Potter fan we decided to go with it. Need not have been concerned at all, we were all made very welcome. With separate dining area which meant others were not disturbed but little one would wander was a perfect solution. Thank you so much for a very enjoyable stay.
