30 YEARS OF CHANGE AND STILL THE CHANGES COME
Nothing stands still and after 30 years at Lindeth Fell, we have decided to roll out a few more changes. On our anniversary, we sat back as a family and asked ourselves where Lindeth Fell should go next. Our aim has always been to do things to the highest standard possible, while still offering great value to our guests. Putting the customer at the centre of our thinking has always been a priority and we still think that is the right way forward.
We are changing our approach to dining. There have been a few influences on this, such as the proliferation of excellent local restaurants, higher staff turnover in the kitchen and increasing costs which have become unsustainable for a small hotel. Unfortunately with only 14 bedrooms, we don’t have the luxury of ‘volume’ and we have no appetite to push menu prices higher. This has meant that we don’t always feel we reach those very high standards we aspire to, so we’ve decided that as of January 2015 we will stop our traditional meal service in the evening, lunch and also Sunday lunch.
FOOD & DRINK IN 2015.
We want to prioritise what we do well, ensuring we deliver the highest quality each and every time. Our Lakeland breakfasts will continue to welcome our staying guests each morning and we are expanding our stunning Afternoon Teas to match the quality of our views. We are currently planning a range of elegant cold fish, meat, cheese or Cumbrian platters which will be available by pre order to be enjoyed in the bar, lounges, your room, or weather permitting, on the terrace. Our family will be on hand to continue the friendly, professional service you expect at Lindeth Fell.
We are creating a guest lounge and bar area in the first dining room and currently have a local craftsman drawing up plans. We have invested heavily in the bedrooms in recent years, but are completing our current round of refurbishments by adding large Flat screen TVs. The entrance hall is having some minor changes to enhance the ambience and we are delighted to announce that improved Wireless Internet access will also be available by way of a rather complicated satellite link! We have recently upgraded our parking facilities and are also planning new signs for the entrance.
GOING GREEN | NOVEMBER CLOSURE.
While we have always advocated a ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ philosophy at Lindeth Fell, we’re pleased to be adding to our green credentials by installing a biomass boiler. This does mean a hotel closure from 9th Nov to the 5th Dec, but we will then be very happy to offer you lots of hot water from burning wood fuel sourced from well-managed woodlands. I’m sure you’ll agree that any small steps we can take to safeguarding our beautiful Lake District will be well worth it.
We've already tweaked our logo to reflect our 30 years at Lindeth Fell, but we're very conscious that our signage also needs to change. In addition, we will be updating our current brochure and designing a new website and monthly email newsletter. Sign up to receive further information from Lindeth Fell by clicking here.
FISHING IN THE LAKE DISTRICT
We have 2 fishing permits which can be used by guests.

Boats are available for hire on Grasmere, Elterwater, Ullswater, Windermere, and also exchange permits for river fishing trout, salmon.
