Welcome to The Low House. I am Lisa, the owner of this lovely cottage, that dates back to 1850. I am pleased to be able to offer my home for travellers to come and explore The Lake District. It is an area of the world my family love and are always sad to leave. I have two little girls, 5 and 2 years old.
Lisa purchased this Cottage in 2018
Why Lisa chose Crosthwaite
If you are looking for complete peace, you'll find it at The Low House. Located to the east of Kendal, the area is quiet and unspoilt with many small villages and hamlets. There are numerous routes for both mountain and road biking in the area. For sightseeing beyond the incredible hills, mountains, forests and lakes you will find the delights of Bowness, Windermere, Ambleside, Hawkshead and Grasmere to name but a few. Lake Windermere, of course, offers many activities for sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding or a cruise around the Lake and is only a short drive away. Lake Windermere is England's largest lake, in the heart of the Lake District.
What makes this Cottage unique
The Low House has it all if you are looking to stay in the countryside, but be only a short distance away from the hustle and bustle of Bowness-on-Windermere. You have the option to explore the Lakes and even the Dales if you wish to. Situated in a sheltered area, the valley is famous for its damson orchards, and the profusion of white damson blossom in the spring is one of the area's main attractions. They are grown mainly in and around the Lyth and Winster valleys. Damsons are lovers of limestone and Lyth Valley damsons have a distinctive nutty flavour and are used for making desserts, jam, punch, damson gin and wine. The orchards of the Lyth Valley are a unique sight, surrounding each small farm and growing along every hedgerow in the valley. They burst into bloom in April, covering the orchards and hedgerows with snow white blossom. The fruit ripens in September and is sold from roadside stalls and in local shops. The word ‘Lyth’ originates from the Norse ‘hlith’ meaning sloping hillside and the valley edges are defined by the two magnificent limestone escarpments, Whitbarrow Scar and Scout Scar, views from which take in the Lakeland Fells and Morecambe Bay Estuary. The Low House sits at the base of Whitbarrow Scar. Our house also includes free leisure club entrance to Choices Health Club in Troutbeck Bridge, offering you a heated indoor 15 m pool, sauna and spa facilities. If you are booking more than 2 months in advance we would be happy to split the payment of the rental rate into two payments.
