The Lingholm Estate is situated on the Western Shore of Derwentwater in a dramatic location surrounded by incredible views of some of the best loved Lakeland fells. If you are looking for a tranquil lakeside location with nature at your fingertips, stunning scenery and Lakeside access then Lingholm is the perfect place for you.
This small traditional country estate lies at the heart of the Northern Lake District with the Lakeland Fells of Skiddaw to the north, Castlerigg and High Seat to the east and the Newlands Round to the south and west.
Central to the estate is a grand grade II listed Victorian house, built in 1873 by the prominent Victorian Architect Alfred Waterhouse.
Beautiful paths lead you through the gardens straight to Derwentwater and the estate’s large stretch of private lake frontage.
A short stroll down the drive takes you to a footpath leading to Catbells, one of the most famous lakeland walks and in the other direction to the boat launch to Keswick.
The idyllic yet convenient location means you can enjoy a truly relaxing holiday without having to use your car.
Lingholm has a strong connection with Beatrix Potter who spent many holidays on the Estate and credited the Lingholm Kitchen Garden as her original inspiration for Mr McGregor’s Garden in The Tale of Peter Rabbit, she also wrote Squirrel Nutkin at Lingholm.
“Thank you for such a memorable and fantastic place and an amazing and comfortable stay. This was one of the finest and well-managed apartments I have visited in a long time. Yes indeed we are already planning our next visit here in summer this time!!”
“We have enjoyed a relaxed and yet full weekend. Sitting enjoying the views, picnic on the lawn, lake activities and hog-roast party with such comfort and facilities what more could you ask for? Thank you.”
“A delightful week in a wonderful setting. We ‘wowed’ and ‘ahhed’ all week. Lingholm is amazing. Will be back again. Super to sit with a cuppa, glass of wine, or as we did BBQ down beside the lake or just stroll around the grounds. So many great walks, too numerous to mention. Hope you manage to get out in the fells and recharge your batteries as we did. Many thanks to all at Lingholm.”
“What an amazing and wonderful experience it has been staying at Lingholm Estate. It is a truly magical location and the future plans are so exciting. Can’t wait to return. P.S. Jenny and Joe are superb hosts and nothing is too much trouble.”
“Anther wonderful stay at Lingholm over Christmas. We had both apartments (Borrowdale and Skiddaw) between two families which worked really well. Once again Jenny and Joe were welcoming and friendly and nothing is too much trouble, you only have to ask. Can’t wait to visit again!”
“We have really enjoyed our holiday in the Lake District and the beautiful weather has really helped too. We have been very comfortable in Swinside which is attractive and spacious. The views from our window have been superb – morning through to late evening. Thank you for making us so welcome and comfortable. We hope to come back soon.”
