Having stayed in several B&Bs in the lakes, the Lowthwaite really is the best i have found. It is in a lovely quiet spot at the foot of a small fell and someway from any major road. The room(Blencathra) is split level, with the bedroom downstairs and bathroom/sitting area above. It was spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated, with quality linen and towels. Plenty of tea/coffee and toiletries. I had one evening meal which was delicious - Tine is a brilliant cook and the homemade muffins, bread and jams are excellent. The breakfasts are slighty different to the usual 'full english and toast', which is an option if you wish. There are cooked vegetarian choices which i also enjoyed and the cereal/bread/yoghurt/juice are also top quality. Clearly a lot of effort goes into food sourcing, preparation and presentation at the Lowthwaite. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay and would definitely return.
