GOING GREENER, WITH A BIOMASS BOILER
We have decided to further develop our 'green' credentials!
We've bitten the bullet and decided to install a biomass Boiler at Lindeth Fell in November. We feel this offers us a greener future where we burn wood fuel sourced from well-managed woodlands.
We will continue to 'reduce, reuse and recycle' wherever possible.
NOVEMBER 2014 CLOSURE
Notice of closure during November 2014.
Due to the complicated nature of installing a Biomass Boiler (and the dread of not having hot water for our guests), we felt it best to close for the month of November 2014, while this happened. Specific dates are still to be agreed.
We are also planning to complete some of our other refurbishment work during this period, so our usual December closing will be shortened. Please call us on 015394 43286 if you have any questions or worries.
FISHING IN THE LAKE DISTRICT
We have 2 fishing permits which can be used by guests.
The permit is issued by the Windermere, Ambleside & District Angling association and covers over twenty fisheries on some of the most beautiful rivers, lakes and tarns in the area. Boats are available for hire on Grasmere, Elterwater, Ullswater, Windermere, and also exchange permits for river fishing trout, salmon.
So if you are interested in finding out more click here for further information on fishing in the Lake District.

English Gardens, an Introduction to their History, Design and Plants
English Gardens have a world wide reputation.
This talk will trace their history and development through the centuries, from the medieval gardens mainly used for growing food
and herbs, through :- the Tudor period when aesthetic considerations replaced utilitarian ones, the 17th century when formal gardens
on a grand scale became fashionable, and the 18th century when landscape gardens swept away all formality. The eclectic mix of styles in the Victorian era and why many had fallen out of favour by the Edwardian era will also be examined. In addition to which the plants
that were available and how they influenced the style of gardens will also be considered.
This talk is intended for any one who is not familiar with the fascinating and unique history of English Gardens or who wishes to be reminded of their development.
By looking in situ at the famous and historic gardens of Rydal Mount and Rydal Hall, and also the Thomas Mawson designed gardens here at Lindeth Fell, the history, design and plants of English gardens will also be traced.
