Every last detail was organised which took a lot of the stress away from us. I don't think I would have known where to start without your forward plan! Linthwaite is such a beautiful place and the weather meant we could enjoy the grounds and have some lovely photos. The staff were all brilliant from the moment we arrived and nothing was too much trouble.

Even though low key we still felt like VIPs. We got the weather too, which was great for us to have our pictures taken. The views are stunning and made for great backdrops for our photos. They all turned out fantastic. What a hidden gem you have with the tarn and the complimentary wellies were perfect for us all to put on and have our photos taken.

I appreciate that it wasn't a big wedding to arrange but it was lovely that it was so well organised, we knew exactly what was happening and didn't have to think at all "what to do next" - it's amazing that on occasions like this your "brain power" completely deserts you! All of the staff (and the registrars) were lovely and even thou we only met you briefly we felt quite at home. Have to confess that I was a little worried about not having family around to escort me into the ceremony room and as witnesses, but felt completely comfortable with this on the day - we really appreciated that you were all so genuinely pleased for us. We had a great time with Thomas and the photos - and were so lucky with the weather! It was wonderful to be able to relax in the sunshine afterwards. I'm going on a bit here so will finish off, but the whole week was just perfect - only wish we could do it all again! - we have come away with heaps of happy memories. We would love to come back to Linthwaite, perhaps for an anniversary. Please pass on our thanks to everyone." - August 2012

"We'd just like to say a very big thank you to you and all the staff for our wonderful wedding day. We had an amazing day that we will remember and cherish forever. Everything from the initial enquiry with Kate, right through the day itself to the moment we left was perfect, and all of the staff are a great credit to the hotel.  The Loft Suite was such a fabulous room to get ready in for the wedding - beautiful decoration, light and airy and most importantly, plenty of room for myself, bridesmaids, mum, photographers, make-up and hair ladies ....! So many of our guests commented on how beautiful the view and the hotel's setting is and also what a lovely atmosphere there was at Linthwaite. It really did feel like our home from home for the two days we were staying. The food was also exquisite during our whole stay. The evening meal the night before the wedding was beautiful and the wedding breakfast itself was amazing too. Again many of our guests told us how much they enjoyed the food and how tasty it was. One of our guests said it was the best meal he'd ever had anywhere! Please will you pass on our thanks to Richard Kearsley and his team. Kate Thomas is worth her weight in gold! She was so organised and helpful, right from the initial enquiry and all through the planning process. She also provided lots of suggestions and it was great to have her there to bounce ideas off or just to confirm things with. You'd have thought she didn't have any other clients because her service was always so personal. I know I couldn't have done it all without her! Please pass on our thanks to Craig Routledge who did a fabulous job of co-ordinating our day. He was always there to make sure things ran smoothly, and did a great job of rounding up various stray members of our families for the important moments like cutting the cake. He was discreet but also made us feel very reassured and we didn't have to worry about anything during the whole day. We also appreciated how accommodating the hotel was with us making the day our own. All the little details combined to really tailor the day to suit us. Many venues don't allow this, so it just confirms for us that we made the right choice in selecting Linthwaite for our special day. It would be easy to take for granted how smoothly and to plan the wedding day ran - we very much appreciate all the efforts of Kate, Craig and all the staff who played a part in our day, for making it so perfect and so memorable. Thanks again and we look forward to returning soon." - April 2010

We cannot praise enough the quality of the food and service on the Tuesday evening and for the wedding breakfast meal on the Wednesday. We cannot praise highly enough your reception and house keeping staff for being so helpful when the guests arrived, and during the two day stay. We received nothing but glowing comments from our guests, and you have certainly made an impression.  So please pass on our thanks and best wishes to Andy your General Manager, Jayne and Craig your Managers, Richard your Head Chef and all the staff.  Please pass on our thanks to Kate also for all her help and advise in planning this day over the past 6 months. It was certainly a memorable time for us and the new room was superb" - March 2010

"We were married at the hotel in December and I really don’t know where to start with this letter of thanks. I have been a flight attendant for 11 years and have been fortunate to travel the world and stay in amazing hotels and because of this, I feel qualified to be able to comment on hotel standards. The Linthwaite blew me away fro so many reasons. The breathtaking scenery is always a plus point of course but the hotel itself is a delight. I just love the tasteful décor and the new bar area is stylish and calming and reminds me of an upmarket New York cocktail lounge. I stayed at the Linthwaite earlier in the year and enjoyed the calming colour schemes in the bedroom and the relaxing atmosphere in the lounge area during the evening. One of my favourite experiences of the Linthwaite is the restaurant. Your head chef is a credit to you; his food is exquisite and beautifully presented, in my opinion as good as any Michelin star restaurant in London. Our wedding breakfast menu was absolutely perfect and we had so many compliments from our extremely impressed guests. The thing that impressed me the most is the staff, the restaurant staff were all fantastic, so friendly and welcoming and the really couldn’t do enough to help us and our guests. The same is to be said of the reception team, so helpful and friendly, they really are amazing. Jane is the duty manager I have dealt with most during my wedding planning and the actual wedding day. When it came to the day of my wedding, I already felt Jane was a family friend as I had built up a real rapport with her during the months leading up to it. She has such a warm personality and she really cares about making people feel comfortable and happy, nothing was too much trouble for her and her calmness made me feel relaxed and at ease which was so important. My biggest thanks goes to Kate who has been an absolute pleasure to work with and who made our wedding day the most special and amazing day of our lives. We planned the day together over a period of 18 months and Kate made me feel like I was the only person ever to have had a wedding at the Linthwaite. Her organisation skills are totally unbelievable; she made everything easy for us and made something that is notoriously stressful into something that was actually really fun. I am really going to miss our regular email exchanges because she is such a lovely person and we have grown very fond of her. She is amazing and an absolute credit to the Linthwaite team. I really can’t than you enough for the wonderful experiences we have had. The Linthwaite will always be somewhere dear to us and we will be regular guest over the coming years and we will especially look forward to returning for our first anniversary next year". - December 2009

"To Kate, Mary, Andy and the rest of the team, we wanted to write to say a massive ‘thank you’ for everything – from first visiting Linthwaite this time last year we had a great feeling and you didn’t disappoint! From beginning to end everything was taken care of: Kate made the planning so easy and covered every detail, an absolute star. Mary and Andy ran the day like a dream, so efficient and nothing to much trouble. The food and service were simply fantastic, without doubt the best wedding breakfast we’ve eaten (and not juts because it was our wedding!) Feedback from our guests is the real best though and a credit to ALL the team, both front and back; everyone was thoroughly blown away by the whole ‘Linthwaite experience’ and came away with a lovely warm glow…. What more could we ask?! Its fair to say neither of us can recommend Linthwaite highly enough, it will always be a special place for us and we can’t wait to come back and visit again!" - December 2009
