Luxury Windermere B&B, Lindeth Fell Country House, is set for a complete revamp, with a new team of luxury hotel veterans at the helm.

Purchased by The Storrs Collection in April, the plans for renovation are to be fully undertaken by next winter.

Set amongst seven acres of private gardens, Lindeth Fell overlooks the lake on Lyth Valley Road, Windermere, offering both secluded privacy and awe-inspiring views.

Having been built in 1907, it is still imbued with its charming 'arts and crafts character'.

The Storrs Collection, which also owns Storrs Hall, aims to further enhance Lindeth Fell's appeal by restoring the surrounding gardens back to its former glory.

Former Linthwaite House Chef, Ashley Wood is now at the helm of the kitchen.

Ashley has already curated a brand-new menu for guests, providing a relaxed home-from-home dining experience,

Also joining the team as Duty Manager is Harry Doddrell, formerly of L’Enclume.

Together with long-time duty manager, Cath Tarney, the pair will ensure the absolute comfort of all Lindeth Fell's guests.

Ashley said: “I’m happy to have joined the Lindeth Fell team and I’m looking forward to working with Harry and Cath to create a home away from home for our guests.

"What we want to offer is a friendly welcome and proper hospitality, where our guests are remembered and greeted by name, with simple food that is executed to a high standard using great produce in a beautiful place.

"The key thing for us is that we want to tailor our offering to our guests; for example, just yesterday a guest asked for a simple salad with new potatoes and veg and it was lovely to deliver that for them – exactly what they asked for.”

Harry Doddrell echoed this sentiment and expressed his excitement to join the establishment.

Harry said: “I always knew I wanted to go into hospitality, and this is what I’ve been working towards over the course of my career.

"To play such a key part in running this amazing country house hotel is a dream come true and I’m really excited to see our plans come together.

"We want our guests to come here and really make the place their own. We want them to feel truly taken care of. I can’t wait to make that happen.”
