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.

Recentlyreturned from a lovely two night stay in the Garden Room. The room was spotlessly clean and it was delightful watching from our window the great variety of birds in the garden. Breakfasts were superb – a choice of cooked breakfasts and a range of home-made produce including granola, bread, muffins and jam; Tine also went to great lengths to... More

Ok, wow! My girlfriend and I chose this as our accommodation for a vacation in the beautiful lake district. In so many ways Lowthwaite single handedly turned what I suspect might otherwise have been a good 3 star holiday into a superb 5 star holiday! Hosts Tine and Jim are wonderful. Our stay was so good we extended by one... More

This place is a real gem. The rooms are tasteful and the atmosphere is very relaxed. All four rooms come with extra large beds which is quite unusual. The location is quiet and out of the way. The road on which the B&B is located is a minor road which means there is virtually no traffic. The building itself is... More

A fabulous stay in a very peaceful location. Superb food with an extensive choice for breakfast. We stayed in the 'Garden room' which is very cosy and like all of Lowtwaite, is tastefully decorated and well cared for. The hosts have excellent knowledge of the area and are very helpful with planning walks. The best b&q in the lakes.

We recently spent two nights in the Blencathra room at Lowthwaite and were delighted with our stay. The room was spotlessly clean, the beds extremely comfortable and it was great to have the little upstairs seating area with a selection of teas and coffee (even excellent filter coffee and a little cafetiere) with fresh milk available from the fridge in...

A gem in the lake district. An idyllic house sits in a valley of tranquillity.Tasteful room décor, mouth watering breakfast(& welcoming cupcakes) and the helpful lovely hosts. Strongly Recommended! We will definitely come back again.
