THE Storrs Collection, which owns Storrs Hall on the shores of Windermere in the Lake District, has enhanced its portfolio with the acquisition of luxury B and B Lindeth Fell Country House.

Lindeth Fell stands in seven acres of its own private gardens overlooking the lake on Lyth Valley Road in Windermere. 

 It was built in 1907 and retains much of its Arts and Crafts character, offering 14 chic bedrooms.

It has been owned and run by the Kennedy family for almost 40 years and won a number of awards under their care.

Andrew Nicholson, General Manager of Storrs Hall said: "We're proud to have added Lindeth Fell to The Storrs Collection and very much look forward to carrying forward the exceptional quality of the stewardship of the Kennedy family. 

"There is a synergy between Lindeth Fell and Storrs Hall - both are very special places, each with a rich and interesting history, in a spectacular setting, providing a warm and nurturing guest experience.

"Lindeth Fell is the perfect addition to our portfolio and we can't wait to work with the team there.

"We wish the Kennedy family a happy, well-deserved retirement."
