Friendly hosts greeted us at this amazing, individual in style B&B. Our every need was catered for and nothing was too much trouble. The room was invitingly warm and cosy, everything beautifully fresh and clean. Each morning we were indulged with the most amazing breakfast of our choice- Tine is a very accomplished cook and uses only the very best...

This is such a lovely b&b and I loved​ the hint (perhaps more than a hint!) of Africa in the lakes. Very comfortable, beautiful surroundings and friendly hosts. Both of us thought the breakfast was superb and couldn't think of how it could be any better.

Peaceful and quite with a delicious breakfast. The hosts were very helpful and gave us their local knowledge of the places to eat and walk which made our weekend complete. Rooms were very comfy and very clean to a high standard.

Peaceful and very relaxing this gorgeous B&B is set in a stunning area of The Lakes. Would definitely recommend staying here. We took advantage of Jim and Tine's excellent local knowledge and walked and cycled our way around Ullswater and beyond. Breakfast was a delicious treat from the cooked favourites to the lightest stack of yummy pancakes! We're longing to...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lowthwaite, Jim and Tine are friendly, helpful and welcoming. Our room was very comfortable, with a big bed and a good shower, and mercifully quiet. Breakfast is wonderful, locally sourced and home-made, and Tine couldn’t do enough to help with my dairy allergy, providing soya alternatives, and even making dairy free muffins for me...

This was an absolutely perfect B&B. The location is quiet and secluded yet easily accessible to any of the Lake District towns (especially Keswick). It is near Ullswater and has access to all of the surrounding hikes there. Quaint but high-quality pubs are also close by for dinner. The bedroom and bathroom were clean, warm (we went in Winter) and...

We stayed for three nights and had a great time. A great location for walking or just for some peace and quiet. Hosts were really helpful with information on places to visit and for recommended places to eat. Breakfasts were fantastic!

Stayed here Feb 2017 with family for a weekend in the lakes. It was a prefect location for walks, drives, swimming in the lake and generally pottering around. The rooms are all different sizes but the same in furnishings. The beds are firm (which was fine for most of us) but we all found the pillows (whilst luxurious feather ones)...

We stayed for two nights. What a lovely place.Although only a short drive from the A66, it felt like we were far away from all the rush and busy lives. Perfect location and near Ullswater, Glenridding and Pooley Bridge where we planned to stay. The bed was extremely comfy - loved the African decor! We were impressed with the breakfasts...

I stayed here with my wife for a weekend away from the kids whilst attending my cousins wedding in Glenridding. Make sure you have a map because my trusty sat nav was completely wrong as to the location. On arrival we got a warm reception and explanation of the routine, the owner was very well informed. The furniture is amazing...
