  • "There were a lot of flies in the property and although the fly swat was very useful."

    ..a can of fly spray would have been useful...however it was probably just that time of the year!! House was great but we found it difficult to find a pub that was open for a meal in the evening due lack of staff so recommend you eat in !!!

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We agree that most areas of the Lakes can suffer with flies at certain times of the year, but we do find that closing doors tends to keep them out of the house and less bothersome. The local pubs since lockdown do seem to have different hours for food, so we would always recommend checking their websites and booking ahead to avoid disappointment. Thanks again for feeding back your comments. Property Owner

  • "Great property with all the amenities, clean, comfortable and great views."

    A little disappointed that the garage pictured was not useable as we had 2 Kayaks and bikes.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We will amend the listing so that we can make people aware that the workshop is not accessible. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay and loved the views. Thanks again. Property Owner

  • "The property is spacious and comfortably decorated."

    It’s been recently renovated for renting, and it’s been clear that a great deal of thought and consideration has been given to making the property as comfortable as possible for guests, and providing every amenity. The mattresses where firmer then we were used too, but the bedding was very comfortable. We had two small children with us, but the property is perhaps more suited to older children, as one bedroom is quite a way from the others and there are lots of fragile decorations. The house was well heated, but is entirely based on individually programmed electric radiators. There isn’t a way of chasing this without turning each one off and on, and no explanation is given on how to reprogram them to your needs. The house is well situated in the Lake District close to many attractions, and is easy to reach by main roads. It is however situated directly on a main road, and although there is a mirror to help with coming and going, again it’s not suited to small children.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. It is much appreciated. As we are new to this it is great to have constructive feedback on anything that we may be able to improve. Thanks again. Property Owner

The property

This characterful part barn conversion, Drumlins, is idyllically positioned on the outskirts of the pint-sized village of Lowick Green.

Framing far-reaching views across the peaceful greenery of Cumbria and enjoying close proximity to The Old Man of Coniston and Coniston Water, Drumlins offers a wonderful rural retreat for both families and friends alike.

Park up on the driveway and marvel at the breath-taking greenery that envelopes this lovely abode before unloading your belongings and settling in.

A well-equipped utility greets you upon entry, providing a handy space to kick off your muddy walking boots and freshen up your holiday attire following a day of exploration.

Moving through the property, discover a sociable open-plan living space, beautifully adorned with Burlington slate flooring and bathed in natural light welcomed through the patio doors.

Uncork a bottle of wine and enjoy a conversation with the chef at the elegant breakfast bar as they utilise the electric oven and induction hob to whip up a range of tasty treats before gathering together with your loved ones at the dining table to indulge.

In the summer months, throw open the patio doors and enjoy an alfresco affair amongst the peaceful greenery of the rear garden as your four-legged friends stretch their legs.

As the skies grow darker, retreat indoors and settle down for the evening with a sumptuous spot in front of the telly in either of the sitting rooms, with a blockbuster-classic playing in one and a cartoon playing in the other, or escape into the pages of a good book in the reading nook on the landing.

When sleep calls, you're spoilt for choice between three well-presented bedrooms, with a super-king-size (offering a flexible zip/link feature, ideal for couples, families and friends sharing), a double room and a ground floor king-size room.

Servicing the property is a stylish bathroom, where you can pour in the bubbles and indulge in a blissful soak, and a ground-floor shower room, ideal for those with limited mobility.

A short walk from your doorstep will bring you into the heart of Lowick Green, where you can refuel with a spot of hearty pub fare at the local pub, The Farmer's Arms, or enjoy a crisp pint of real ale in the garden at The Royal Oak.

Lace up your walking boots and embark on an adventure to the summit of The Old Man of Coniston, renowned as the highest point of the historic county of Lancashire and affording unrivalled views across the surrounding countryside, whilst those looking for a more lei-surely stroll may prefer a wander alongside the glistening waters of Lake Windermere or Coniston Water.

Keep the little ones entertained with a visit to Grizedale Forest, home to the exhilarating treetop adventure course, Go Ape Grizedale, or for a change of scenery, enjoy a coastal adventure with a trip to the Furness Coast, with miles of glorious beaches and wildlife waiting to be discovered.

Drumlins makes an excellent base for a group retreat to the lakes.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
