Lovely property in great location

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lovely views also enhanced by snow and sunshine for us! Cottage has everything you need. Loved the log fire. Beds comfortable and linen & towels high quality. Only v minor downside is navigating the narrow driveway & limited to 2 cars, but parking also available up the road (very close-by). Thanks to Sarah - extremely helpful and responsive. Will definitely book again in the future.

Lovely peaceful home with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

The home is lovely and has plenty of space for a family reunion, with 4 bedrooms, a large sitting area, and big dining area. The views across the fields to Esthwaite Water were just wonderful, yet it's just a 5 minute walk to the local pub and Hill Top, Beatrix Potter's home. Yvette manages the property, and she went beyond the call of duty to get us sorted out when the telly went out over the weekend. It was a wonderful experience and we would happily stay here again.

Great location. Very comfortable. Excellent communication with owner.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Lowfold for one week with extended family and had an amazing week. The accommodation was very comfortable for 4 adults and 4 children and had pretty much everything we needed. The location was central to many destinations we visited. We really enjoyed the bonus of using the fishing permits on Esthwaite Lake. The communication between the owner was excellent, very informative and helpful. We had a wonderful stay in the Lake District and would definitely recommend this property.
