Awards

Our central focus is you, our guest. We want you feel at home at Lindeth Fell and leave feeling happy and relaxed. For over 35 years this approach has not changed fundamentally, but we have honed it, and of course, invested heavily over the years to keep up with changing customer needs. 

We only really need this guest feedback to know we're on the right lines, but it is always nice to be recognised for the hard work the team have put in to make Lindeth Fell what it is. Below is a selection of awards that we have received, which for us acts as an extra 'rubber stamp' in terms of the recognition of our commitment to our guests.

'Best in England' from The AA

At a glitzy award ceremony in London owner Diana Kennedy with daughters Sheena and Jo and Deputy manager Linda accepted the Guest Accommodation of the year , England Winner 2019 ~2020. Proprietor Diana Kennedy, who at 82 is still active in the business, has spent over 35 years welcoming guests to Lindeth Fell. She said “ These awards offer great satisfaction to us. Being the best in England is quite an accolade, but what’s really important is making sure our guests leave happy. It’s a simple ethos, but one we’ve stuck to since buying Lindeth Fell in 1984. Thanks must go to our team for their hard work over the years and to our lovely customers”.

The Daily Mail online said: This is the best B&B in England for 2019, according to the AA, which was impressed with the luxuriousness of the accommodation and its location - overlooking Lake Windermere.

The AA inspector who visited said: 'This elegant, stylishly restored Edwardian country house is owned and managed by the Kennedy family, who combine a warm, friendly welcome with five-star service. The 14 individually-designed bedrooms have crisp Egyptian cotton bed linen, deluxe fluffy towels, robes, slippers, complimentary sherry, DAB radios, WIFI, TVs, tea trays and Nespresso coffee machines. What's more, 'many rooms have superb lake views'.

Green Tourism Silver Award

The Green Tourism Award is important as it shows out commitment to a sustainable future for Lindeth Fell. We're not going to lie, it's difficult with a beautiful old building to try and achieve high scores for all the criteria. Saying that, we're delighted to be making solid progress and it really gets us thinking about everything from water and waste to nature and energy saving.
