  • “Cottage was clean and well maintained.”

    Very nice welcome pack from the owners.

    Very nice welcome pack from the owners. We were very fortunate in that we had very good weather all week, which certainly helped s to enjoy the cottage and Lake District, Cumbria and West Yorkshire.

The property

Damsons grow in numerous orchards right across the Lyth Valley and have for generations been used to make damson gin - hence the name Tipsy Gin Cottage.

The mother of the current owners was one such distiller, who each autumn used a special family recipe to make the rather potent spirit.

Today, Tipsy Gin Cottage is a luxurious cottage with bags of character and charm and that is a popular retreat for couples wanting to soak up the beautiful countryside that surrounds it.

Inside there is cosy living space, a farmhouse kitchen, a smart bathroom and a sumptuous king size bedroom - the perfect place to kick back and relax. Situated alongside a traditional whitewashed farmhouse in the Lyth Valley, now included on the Lonely Planet’ Beautiful World List list of “most beautiful places on earth”, Tipsy Gin Cottage is around 20 minutes away from Lake Windermere and Bowness and a similar distance from the village of Cartmel, a foodie heaven, home to the famous Sticky Toffee Pudding and the acclaimed and Michelin award winning restaurant L’Enclume named as Britain’s Best Restaurant four years in a row. More great news, Tipsy Gin Cottage is just a 5 minute walk from the popular Lyth Valley pub and its excellent restaurant.

About the location


Bowness-on-Windermere 5 miles; Kendal 6 miles.

Crosthwaite is a small village set in the picturesque Lyth Valley, famous for its damson trees, and boasts a lovely pub known nationally for its excellent food. The lakeside towns of Windermere and Bowness are nearby, with plenty of activities, interest and entertainment for all ages. Also within easy reach is the popular market town of Kendal, an historic Lakeland town with a fine reputation for shopping. Kendal nestles on the banks of the River Kent. 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. 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.
