A Hotel With A Unique History

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, the house was once owned by Beatrix Potter and our logo is actually in her handwriting! Our 34 bedroom hotel is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a day of exploring the Lake District National Park and the 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 are also a licensed Wedding Venue.
