Loweswater Cottage

Loweswater Cottage is full of character and incorporates the original carriageway arch, dated 1797. It can sleep up to six guests; it has two bedrooms downstairs with separate bathroom and the third bedroom is upstairs with an en-suite shower room. It is ideal for families and friends who enjoy being together but also like their own space.

The ground floor bedrooms (one double, one twin) are furnished in a country style with antique pine furniture and the bathroom has a bath for two with shower over. The large breakfasting kitchen is well equipped with hand painted units complimented by the original riven oak ceiling. The first floor master bedroom extends over the carriage archway and has original oak beams and trusses. It is furnished with antique pine and the bedstead is antique brass and iron. The bedroom has its own en-suite shower room. The lounge/dining room is large and spacious and is enhanced by the high vaulted ceiling of the original barn. The dining area overlooks the garden and from a side window seat one can see ‘The View.’ The cottage’s outdoor sitting area also looks down the length of Crummock Water.

Comments from Loweswater Cottage guests

We had a fantastic two week stay in Loweswater cottage with our 9 month old baby. Joan is a lovely host and really thought of everything to make our stay more comfortable. The living room of the cottage is huge and is a brilliant play area for small children, and there are many beautiful walks from the doorstep including woodland, lakes, and high and low fells. It was wonderful watching the red squirrels and birds just outside the window, as well as the chickens, sheep and horses in the garden and nearby fields. Thanks again!

Lovely two week stay in what has to be the most beautiful location in Lakeland. Hospitality second to none, warm, comfortable stay. Many great walks over the fells of Buttermere and Ennerdale, however, enjoyed the local ones immensely.

We have had a fantastic week here. Cosy cottage, home made cakes, warm welcome, a superb setting and even meals outside with that most amazing view, and all in glorious sunshine! We couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks Joan.

Always wanted to visit the North Western lakes and it doesn’t disappoint, beautiful area, beautiful cottage. Really enjoyed a pint at the Kirkstile after a long walk. The view from Foulsyke is so good, it doesn’t look real. The cakes were great too. Thanks Joan.
