Dunstane Houses & Linthwaite House

The Dunstane Houses are proud to partner with Linthwaite House near Windermere in the Lake District to offer our guests the exclusive opportunity to visit both Scotland’s capital and the beautiful English Lake District and make the most of your trip.

Stay two nights at The Dunstane Houses and two nights at Linthwaite House and receive the following exclusive perks:

  • One way train travel between the two hotels (Edinburgh to Oxenholme or Oxenholme to Edinburgh)
  • Delicious Afternoon Tea at Linthwaite House during your stay
  • Introduction to Whisky tasting with the resident connoisseur at The Dunstane Houses during your stay



Luxurious, relaxed and unlike anywhere you’ve ever stayed before, The Dunstane Houses form two parts of a family-run boutique hotel that brings a breath of fresh Orkney air to the heart of Edinburgh.

The bedrooms and interiors in both Dunstane House and Hampton House have all been stylishly redesigned and refurbished to pay tribute to the building’s neoclassical character and the owners’ Orcadian heritage, without compromising on modern comfort. Within easy reach of all the attractions of old-town Edinburgh, The Dunstane Houses are a stylish and welcoming city retreat with an authentic Scottish soul.

Our hideaway is situated on a hilltop overlooking Windermere, making it the perfect base from which to explore the scenic surroundings. There is plenty for guests to do around Linthwaite’s beautiful grounds.

Try your hand at a game of boules on our pitch or an eye-catching giant outdoor chessboard invites you to play a game. Take a stroll along our walking trails while admiring the local fauna, flora and sculptures, or go for a cycle and explore the ‘chocolate-box’ village of Bowness-on-Windermere. There are two row boats available on our tarn and, if you’re a keen angler, there is also fly fishing available.
