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

We stayed in the Garden room which we loved. Our own entrance and private patio where we watched the numerous birds at the feeders including a woodpecker. The way the old farmhouse was renovated and the amazing wood from East African dhows that was used to make the furniture, impressed us as did Jim & Tine's eye for detail in... More

This place is quite superb. Our room was immaculate and extremely comfortable. Breakfast is amazing - plenty of homemade and local produce to choose from. We were made to feel very welcome and the walking tips were much appreciated. The green renewable energy features are commendable and the water comes from the stream running through the garden. Can't wait to... More

Every detail had been considered. The rooms were immaculate but very comfortable, with wonderful bathrooms. Tine and Jim were so kind and very informative. Of course the location could not be better. The house is very secluded and it's perhaps advisable to use maps , rather than a sat nav. However I can't think of many more beautiful places to... More

Welcoming, helpful hosts; immaculate, beautiful rooms with very comfortable beds; delicious homemade food and stunning location. Local hiking advice was invaluable and returning from a long trek to scrumptious freshly baked muffins was a real treat.

Fantastic and so helpful. The breakfasts are to die for especially the pancakes. Loved the garden room. The place is small and secluded but within easy reach of Keswick, Penrith and Glenridding. The owners offer lots of advice about walks taking into account the weather. The muffins found in the room everyday when you return are delicious and welcome,. We... More

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
