Hillthwaite House is one of the finest, family run hotels in the Lake District. Set in three acres of landscaped gardens in an elevated position with stunning views of England’s longest lake and the iconic Lakeland fells, the hotel is ideally located between the villages of Windermere and Bowness.

With impeccable service, comfort, superb locally sourced food and friendly staff is it little wonder our guests return year after year to experience our very personal hospitality, fine food and wine and not forgetting the breathtaking Lake District landscape which lies just on your doorstep.

All of our 34 bedrooms are en-suite, and individually designed to suit every occasion. You can choose from lake facing Executive and Superior rooms with Jacuzzi baths or well appointed comfortable double, twin or single rooms.

After a day on hills why not enjoy a gentle swim or relax in our steam room or sauna. Our leisure facilities are for the exclusive use of our guests.

Our food and wine always receives high praise from our guests. We offer a seasonal daily menu and ‘Walk-in’ menu, the menus cater for every taste from Sunday roasts, imaginative vegetarian dishes to plain and simple options, making full use of local Cumbrian produce whenever possible.
