The Lingholm EstateThe Lingholm Estate

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 and Grizedale Pike to the North, Blen Cathra, Castlerigg and High Seat to the East and the Borrowdale Fells 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, or the round the lake walk, and in the other direction to Keswick. You can catch the Keswick Launch from the Lingholm Jetty for a scenic trip round the lake or directly across the lake to Keswick.

Author's Review

There are attractions that are big and there are attractions that are hidden, The Lingholm Estate is a hidden attraction with big personality. Situated just outside Keswick, the Lingholm Estate and it’s amazing cafe is situated in an idyllic spot and after having spent hundreds of thousands of pounds here, it is clear to see where all the money has gone. With an amazing garden, high standard accommodation, it’s famous Alpaca Trekking, not forgetting its award winning restaurant, the Lingholm Estate really does tick every box. The owners have invested not only a lot of money, but also a huge amount of their time and energy in making sure that every one of their visitors has a wonderful experience, I was completely taken aback at just how special this place is, it really couldn’t be missed out of our Cumbria and the Lake District Top 100 line up.
