The distance from bus stop is about 2 miles but if you have a car, it's a real gem in Ullswater! Lovely house with outstanding interior designs and located right in front of Little Mell Fell. Water from the springs is delicious by its own and Tine is a good cook herself! Nice patio view, great service, not forgetting the... More

We came here in the summer and it was fantastic! We didn't want to leave and wished we had booked for longer. Breakfast was great! so much on offer. We tried all of it and all of it was delicious. We felt very welcome. While Jim gave you great walking routes and maps, Tine makes the best blueberry pancakes I've... More

Since finding this outstanding B&B, our trips to the Lake District have become an annual event and longer each time. Jim, Tine and their lovely daughters make our trip here an absolute joy. Tine is a fantastic cook, her breakfast spread is always something we look forward to and this time we were treated to poached peaches and nectarines in... More

If it was possible to give 6 stars, Lowthawaite B&B deserves that extra star. My husband and I were planning to stop off in the Lake District on our way to Scotland. After much research on B&Bs, we decided on Lowthwaite. This little gem way exceeded our expectations and we ended up changing our plans and stayed in the Ullswater... More

The Lowthwaite is truly a gem! It is located n the middle of nowhere but that's one of the many things we loved about it. It is nestled in the mountains, amidst the gorgeous lakes and evergreen fields - a short walk in any direction from the B&B would give you picturesque views! Tine and Jim are also exceptional hosts... More

the location was easy to find, we used google maps and it took us right there. The house and grounds were beautiful, and the family was knowledgeable and friendly! The countryside was amazing, and the food and service were just wonderful.

We have lost count now of the number of stays we have had at Lowthwaite B&B with its wonderful hosts, Jim and Tine. We have just returned from a four night stay in the beautifully appointed Garden Room, with its access to the lovely patio area in the garden, which is ideal for a summer evening with a chilled glass...

Our stay here completely surpassed our expectations, and was easily the best stay we had in our week long sojourn in the Lake District. Don't miss it! We had a room, windows of which opened out to the sight of birds, pheasants and wild rabbits feeding every morning, hardly six feet away on the ledge below us. It was just... More
