  • "The house was lovely, the scenery spectacular and we had a lovely time."

    Three small niggles.....:1) It felt penny-pinching to find each bathroom had only 2 loo rolls! There was a cupboard in the utility with plenty of spare towels - we didn't need any - towels were in abundance, but no spare loo rolls. Plenty of good quality kitchen equipment to use but loo rolls were restricted!?! 2) The teaspoons were heavily out numbered by the other cutlery! Knives, forks, desert spoons aplenty, but you need to get some more teaspoons. I think there were only about 6 or 7! 3). Again it felt a bit mean, given the high quality of provision in all other respects, that there wasn't a small pack of kindling and a few logs for an initial fire. As it happens, one of our party had brought some logs and kindling, but it seemed odd that there was a nice tray of coffee, tea, fruit loaf etc., in the kitchen (much appreciated), but not a small starter pack for a fire.

    Dear Michael, I am pleased to hear you had a lovely stay. However, I am sorry to hear you had some niggles. As the owner I am always available during a stay to help and offer support but I did not hear from you. Usually we do not supply toilet rolls in every bathroom to cover the full stay (only the initial few days), however if you had reached out I would happily have gotten more supplied to you. Thank you for your comments on our teaspoons. I will have some more purchased. Clearly we have had some go missing so I will get them replaced. We have a log store next to the house (not locked) that we are happy for guests to use free of charge through the winter, especially for that first fire. We also supply all the fire starters etc to guests. I will check the stock levels for these. I am sorry that was not sufficient. With best regards, The Low House. Property Owner

  • "This is the second time we have had a holiday at the Low House and it didn’t disappoint."

    It is such a beautiful house with lots of space. There were eleven of us and it still is possible to find somewhere quiet if you want to. The gardens are ideal for the children to run around and hobnob with the sheep next door!

    Very well equipped with everything you could possible need. There was plenty of space to entertain, relax and enjoy our family get together. Lovely welcome pack of tea, coffee, cake, biscuits, milk, bread and wine. They even provided a birthday cake as it was a birthday party weekend. We even had snow!

    Everything about The Low House has been wonderful & a great place to get together to celebrate a 'big' birthday with the family. We'll definitely be back! Thank you.

  • "Amazing home, perfect for large gatherings in a beautiful setting."

    We spent a very relaxing and enjoyable weekend at this gorgeous house which has all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay. The house is even larger than it appears from the photos so there is plenty of space for a everyone in a large group to be comfortable and find their own space if needed. The bedrooms are also super comfy with lovely bed linens and towels. There are a number of nice pubs nearby and lovely walks from the house . It is quite remote so come prepared as we did with plenty of food and drink if you don’t want to venture out again to the shops. In a word - stunning!

    The house was wonderful and exceeded all our expectations. We were a family of 13 ageing from 1 to 66 and all had a great time, The children loved the garden especially talking to the sheep and cows in the fields next to the house. In all a great weekend.

  • "This property is not only very spacious, which is ideal for large families, but it is a gorgeous property as well."

    The grounds and surrounding views are stunning I could look at them all day, the kids loved running riot in the massive garden and was plenty of space for them to do so. We will definitely be staying here again in the future :-) highly recommend this property if you have a big family and want a beautiful place to getaway in a nice quiet area.

Windermere 8 miles.

A historic market town with a fine reputation for shopping, Kendal nestles on the banks of the River Kent and is known as the Southern Gateway to the Lakes. Its old cobbled lanes and byways branch off the attractive main street, and the stone ruins of 12th century Kendal Castle sit perched on a hill with views over the town. Visit The Abbot Hall Art Gallery, its regular collection holding portraits by Kendal born George Romney and works by Turner and Ruskin, with other exhibitions through its links with the Tate. Both Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall with its superb Topiary Garden are nearby, as are limestone escarpments for easy walking, offering thrilling views of the Lakeland Mountains, the Howgills and Morecambe Bay. Kendal itself is ideally placed for exploring South Lakeland, the Yorkshire Dales and beyond. With other attractions such as Kendal Museum and the Museum of Lakeland Life, the fascinating Quaker Tapestry, Lake Windermere and the wider National Park within easy reach, Kendal provides a superb base for a relaxing break.
