  • "Absolutely loved our stay at Lowera Cottage: fabulous, peaceful location, glorious views, great space to play outdoors, and a private jetty to swim from."

    The cottage itself is compact, but beautifully decorated and equipped with everything we needed. A fabulous place to stay for couples or smaller families.

  • "Great location close to all amenities/activities."

    Cottage was very clean and sat in fantastic surroundings. Unfortunately there was no cutlery, having contacted Sykes to enquire about this they did not correspond. At this time we’re unable to verify Sykes customer service, initial impressions were disappointing.

    Thank you for your feedback for Lowera Cottage. There is definitely cutlery in the cottage, it is located in a drawer inside one of the larger drawers, we are sorry that you did not get a response when you reported this to us. If you had contacted us by telephone we could have directed you accordingly or popped into the local office in Windermere. We hope that you will consider booking with us in the future.

  • "This was mine and my partner's first holiday together and we have have the most amazing stay!"

    Everything in Lowera Cottage was just perfect! The view is out of this world, it was lovely to wake up to it every morning. We weren't far from any shops with both Windermere town centre and Bowness within close proximity, but far enough away to be away from any traffic noises and busy crowds. We were greeted every morning by a very friendly local cat who we think lives in the Manor House at the top - for a cat lover, this was really sweet to encounter. We are coming back to the Lake District in the future without question, and we hope to stay here again!

  • "Such a lovely home away from home in a fantastic location, perfect for exploring the Lakes."

    Loved the extra little touches, the Kendal mint cake, the games, prosecco and extra anti-bac and cleaning items to keep the house safe. The owners have clearly spent lots of money to create a lovely cottage that they love. And we felt spoiled staying there. The only thing we'd love to suggest (for next time we stay), would be a better door that feels more secure/less drafty, and a curtain/blind to cover the door for a bit more privacy and warmth on the colder evenings. The booking process from start to finish was great, and we were kept updated throughout. Thanks, The Miles Family

Admire the surroundings of the cottage with breath taking views of Lake Windermere, the largest natural lake in the Lake District, before you enter into the spacious open plan living room of Lowera Cottage and be welcomed by its real home from home ambiance where a charming welcome pack greets you on arrival, filled with locally sourced treats and locally handmade toiletries.

Try your hand at a spot of home-cooking by making use of the quality appliances within the sleek kitchen, including an electric oven, a halogen hob, fridge with ice-box and a dishwasher.

Delight in your dish at the well-presented dining table, before you pop open a bottle of fizz and toast to a wonderful holiday to the Lake District.

After a long walk upon the rolling hills of the National Park, you can look forward to relaxing on the sofa and flicking on the Smart TV, or simply curl up with a good book in hand or plan the next day’s hiking route.

The refreshing ambiance of the property is continued into the bedrooms, comprising of an elegantly appointed master bedroom, with plush double bed and crisp white linens to snuggle under and the single bedroom is spacious and offers contemporary hanging space.

During a balmy day, take your meals outdoors onto the front patio, where you can admire the views of the lake and surrounding mountains as you tuck into your meal and soak up the sunshine.

Whilst here, hop on board a cruise to enjoy a circular trip on the historic steamers to soak up the views of the mountain scenery, secluded bays and the many wooded islands from the majestic beauty of Lake Windermere.

Those with children can look forward to visiting the World of Beatrix Potter attraction or brush up on the local history by visiting the National Trust property of Wray Castle.

Other attractions within the immediate area include Treetop Lake District, where thrill-seekers can enjoy treetop treks, or visit Bowness Bay where you can hire your own boat to explore the lake or visit the 70ft cascading waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force.

Further afield is the National Trust property of Hill Top, which is the former home of Beatrix Potter and the Lakes Aquarium, which is home to an underwater otter tunnel and stingrays.
