We enjoyed a lovely anniversary weekend at Lowthwaite. The house is beautiful, in a stunning location, with wonderful hosts and fantastic breakfasts. We stayed in 'Blencathra' - a two-level room with the bedroom on the ground floor and a small seating area and bath and shower room upstairs. Just a short drive to Keswick, but out in some wonderful Lake... More

We have stayed as a family at Lowthwaite since shortly after it first opened and, as is the mark of a quality establishment, the standards are still being maintained to the highest level. The rooms are beautifully presented, with lovely toiletries and fantastic beds and bedlinen and the wonderful peace and quiet of the location is as engaging as ever.... More

We were very lucky to stay with Jim and Tine at Lowthwaite towards the end of May and it was a fantastic three days we had with them. They are the most helpful couple and nothing is too much trouble - we took our 19 month old daughter and they provided toys for her and entertained her at breakfast time!... More

Lowthwaite is a very unique place to stay. A single house remotely located in the wilderness of the Lake District, there's nothing quite like it. If you are travelling to the Lake District with the aim of disconnecting and embracing the natural world around you, this is the perfect place for you. For us, it was a little too isolating....

What better place to wake up in than Lowthwaite. After a lovely nights sleep in your peaceful room, in a really comfortable bed. Start the day with Lowthwaite's truly fantastic breakfast. Check your walk with Jim for up to date information and advice. Spend a day on the fells. Return to enjoy fresh muffins in your room while you run... More

We are seriously addicted to staying in this wonderful B+B! So many things make it special - including the fabulous setting, nestled deep in Lakeland tranquillity, and beautiful accommodation with unique furnishings. No review of Lowthwaite would be complete without mention of the food - this is the best breakfast you will get anywhere! The seasonal breakfast special for our... More

Tine is a fantastic cook and the breakfast menu is one of the best we have every seen (a huge variety of both hot... More

A wonderful location for a restful get away near Ullswater. Really peaceful and welcoming with excellent home-cooked and baked food and unique and beautiful furnishing. Jim and Tine are very helpful and many attractions in easy striking distance.

We had a wonderful 3 night stay in the most exceptional location. This is really a hidden gem. Jim and Tine were very welcoming and helpful with tips on our plans to walk in the area. The food was sensational and set us up well for our energetic exploits. We're already looking forward to making a return visit.
