  • "We had a great holiday here, a lovely big house, plenty of space for children to enjoy."

    Having an access path to the lake and beautiful lake views were a big plus which we particularly enjoyed. The kitchen was really well equipped, it had everything we needed.

  • "Low House is the best holiday property we have ever stayed in: comfortable, warm, well- equipped, beautiful location."

    As well as the four ensuite bedrooms, large kitchen and comfortable sitting room there is a drying room, a games room, table tennis in the outside barn, a patio with great views and its own private beach (plus a bus stop outside). There are plenty of lovely walks nearby, ranging from lakeside strolls to high peaks.Just perfect!

  • "Absolutely amazing property."

    Have stayed in holiday cottages and lodges in the lake district every year for over 40 years and this has to be one of the nicest if not THE nicest. Visited with my elderly parents who are in their late 80s and very few properties mobility friendly so this was an absolute find. Will certainly be back but in the summer next time with a bit of luck !

  • "One of the best equipped holiday lets we've ever had the pleasure to stay in."

    Everything you could need is here and plenty more besides. Comfy beds, great kitchen, wonderful views. We've been at least six times and will come again in the future.

  • "This is our second visit to this lovely property!"

    It has a beautifully quiet location, with stunning views over the lake & the mountains! We find the property is very well suited for our multi-generational family. Being a bungalow, it is ideal for people with less mobility. There’s 4 bedrooms in all (3 lovely twin rooms and a very large master bedroom), all ensuite, 2 with baths and 2 with showers (one of the shower rooms has a small lip to step over, almost walk in type). There’s a massive lounge room with a log fire & a formal dinning area. The kitchen is spacious with a large dining table (+ high chair) and is VERY well equipped .., it’s has every cooking implement you can think of! The kitchen also has patio doors not only give you amazing views of the lake and mountains but also conveniently lead out to an outdoor eating area. The property is very clean throughout and has everything you may need; the furniture, appliances and fixtures are all excellent quality. It has plenty space for kids to play indoors, in the playroom or outdoors in the large garden. At the rear of the property there’s a large shed with full sized table tennis, darts board with space to store bikes and other sports equipment. There’s even an outside hose to make clean off easy and drying /boiler room to dry any damp coats /boots in main building. The setting couldn't be more beautiful and quiet. It’s only a short walk (5-10mins) to get direct access to the beautiful lake (vehicle access too) and there’s plenty parking space on the grounds for any vehicles. All in all, a fabulous, clean, well appointed, rurally located, lovely spacious property. Would love to spend a week there in the summertime but our winter stay was just lovely too. Hope to return again.

    Our request for heating adjustments were responded to promptly and helpfully. Only regret was dumping unsorted trash. Surely some recycling possible?

  • "What a fabulous week in beautiful Low House!"

    The cottage is in a stunning location with amazing views of, and access to, lake Ullswater . Our multi generational family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return one day. We stayed in winter so enjoyed blustery walks or cosy lazy days, family meals around the big dinning table and evenings relaxing by the log burning fire, playing games with the kids. Perfect! This is a wonderfully positioned, very well equipped, very clean and comfortable cottage. It is a large property, all on one level with a lovely big kitchen, spacious living area, both with amazing views of the lake. The 4 bedrooms (1 kings size master and 3 twin rooms) are very comfortable and are all en-suite. There is EVERYTHING you will ever need in the property. The kitchen is so well equipped and has the bonus of having an aga to keep it cosy and warm. You also have the use of: a utility room with washer dryer iron etc, a handy airing cupboard to dry/warm coats/ dry washing, a playroom with games/ football table, reliable WiFi, and a large shed /log store with ample storage for bikes, with darts board & table tennis too! Everything is quality here; appliances, kitchenware and beds /bedding etc. *FRIENDLY LOCAL ROBIN WARNING: Don’t leave the patio door open more than a few inches on winter mornings unless you want a tame local robin to come inside to say hello and look for crumbs on the kitchen floor! Don’t worry if he does get in, he seems to comfortably know his way out! As bird lovers the robin’s daily visits topped off a lovely week, in a spacious & fabulously equipped property, in a stunning location… beautifully! Thank you Low House owners and workers. *Accessibility: I would recommend this property for people with mild to moderate mobility issues as internally it is all on one level. The doorways are wide and the living areas are spacious. There are showers in the 2 of the 3 twin rooms but not wet room type. The master bedroom and bathroom are very spacious but has a bath only. The property is probably not ideal for people who only use a wheelchair as no wet rooms or fully accessible showers. The entrance into the property is gravelled (but it is level) and there are a couple of steps into the property but they are wide & shallow. This is a wonderful house all on one level which would be great for anyone who struggles with stairs, uses a walker or wheelchair chair occasionally.

The property

This impressive, detached single-storey property stands in a delightfully private location with panoramic views of Ullswater.

Formerly two Lakeland barns which were converted and extended in 1991, Low House is now a fabulous holiday home for an extended family or a number of couples wishing to come together and enjoy a break amidst the most beautiful surroundings of the Lake District.

Upon entering you are welcomed into the hallway which leads off into the spacious sitting room, featuring a woodburning stove and an arrangement of seating for when you return after a day of fell walking.

Continue into the well-equipped kitchen benefitting from all the necessities you will require to rustle up an evening meal, including a four-door electric cooker, before serving it in large dining room.

The younger members of the group will love the playroom, complete with table football and a TV, providing hours of entertainment on a rainy day.

As the evening draws to a close, there are four tastefully presented bedrooms to choose from, each one benefitting from en-suite facilities.

The master bedroom has a six-foot-wide, French style sleigh bed and enjoys lake views, while the other bedrooms features win beds, offering accommodation for up to eight guests.

Step outside and enjoy a summer’s evening on the sunny garden terrace, complete with table and chairs and providing the perfect spot to enjoy alfresco dining.

To the rear of the house is a separate former barn that is lockable providing useful storage for bikes, while entertainment can be found in table tennis and a dart board.

A track across an adjoining field leads to the private lakeshore frontage with a jetty, from where small boats and canoes can be launched.

Stroll along the shoreline of Ullswater to reach the popular village of Pooley Bridge where you can browse a selection of independent shops and stop and unwind in one of the quaint tearooms.

Take yourself further afield to the historic market town of Penrith and take advantage of the amenities on offer, including an indoor heated swimming pool, golf course and driving range.

Whatever you choose to do, return to Low House and enjoy a peaceful evening with your nearest and dearest.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Keswick 17 miles; Carlisle 20 miles.

The bustling market town of Penrith, once the capital of Cumbria, enjoys a central position between the Lake District, the Westmoorland Dales and North Pennines and is ideally placed for taking in all that the region has to offer. Renowned for its wealth of specialist shops, the sandstone buildings of Penrith hide intriguing yards, lanes and alleyways, with a myriad of attractive cottages, gardens and little shops. With a wide choice of excellent pubs, hotels, restaurants and entertainment, Penrith also offers a museum, and Millennium Trails round the historic city streets. Within easy reach of the town is Rheged – an innovative visitor centre with shops, restaurants, exhibitions and a giant cinema screen showing educational and informative films. Brougham Castle, Brougham Hall (The Windsor of the North), Lowther Castle and Gardens, Long Meg and her daughters (the 3rd largest stone circle in England) and the historic city of Carlisle are all a short drive away, as is the stunning scenery of both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.
