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

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

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.

We had such a fab time, we needed peace and relaxation and we certainly got this, We did some wonderful walks without travelling in the car too far. Muffins were delicious and breakfasts are very special with all added touches. Hosts cannot do enough for you whilst giving you space if you want it. THANK YOU, we will be back!... More

We stayed here in Feb 2015 for 2 nights. The location was rural but not too far from main roads and Ullswater lake. The cottage had been beautifully and interestingly restored. Hosts Tine and Jim were perfect. Breakfast was delicious. We can highly recommend the whisky porridge! You can eat there in the evenings too but need to book beforehand.... More

We stayed in lowthwaite April 2014 and its taken us far too long to show Tine and Jim our graditute for all their kindness and patience when we stayed with them. They really went above and beyond to meet our needs and I cannot recommend Lowthwaite enough. It is in such a tranquil, beautiful place, with lovely clean, comfortable rooms... More

One night stay. Friendly welcome. A place that has been created with love and care. Not pretentious but beautifully put together. Great breakfast, fantastic choice and quality of homemade products. We would happily stay here again.
