Many think Ullswater to be the most beautiful of the all the lakes and if so, Low Longthwaite Farm has possibly one of the finest outlooks of lake and mountain in the northern lakes area. Set above the western shores of Ullswater, your view is filled by nearby meadow, a shimmering glint of water with a backdrop of fell and mountain, where the mood and atmosphere, colour and hue change with the time of year.

Low Longthwaite Farm, a 16th century detached farmhouse and barn, has been completely refurbished to offer guests a super house, set in the very heart of the Lake District. Views and a quality that has been recognised by Visit England with the 4 Star Gold Award make this farmhouse perfect for your Lakeland holiday. Approached by a private drive, the house sits in the fell above Ullswater, looking out over to the lake and mountains.

Living Spaces

From the front entrance you step into a spacious sitting room, with plump sofas set around a roaring log burning stove, adding that extra touch of warmth and ambience in winter. Come summer, light floods in through large windows, where the view is filled by lake and mountain.

Adjoining the sitting room is a dining area with a fine table, perfect for lazy lunches and long suppers well into the night.

There is a small snug with sofa bed and armchair. This can be used for *occasional guests or may be just the ticket as the children's den.

The kitchen is large, well equipped, with a breakfast table for six. Off the kitchen is a scullery with laundry facilities, a good storage area for boots and bits and, to the rear, the downstairs shower room with shower, basin and WC.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

A fine, wide, winding staircase leads to the upper landing and the four bedrooms. Choose between two delightful doubles (both with king size beds), one room with en-suite shower, along with two twin bedded rooms. Finally, upstairs is the master bathroom, well equipped with bath, large shower cubicle, basin and WC.

Garden Spaces

Outside the grounds surround the house and barn. Across the private drive is a walled, meadow garden where the sun shines down all day and the view is perfect. To the rear of the house is a large gravelled parking space.

For me the owners have provided one of our best farm houses, both to simply just relax and holiday at, and as a base for exploring the magnificent countryside, lake and villages. Whether you come for holidays with family and friends, or are gathering for reunion or celebration, I am sure Low Longthwaite Farm will please, leaving you with many happy memories of your stay.

Out & About

Ullswater is considered by many to be our most beautiful lake. A nine-mile serpentine body of water, it snakes its way north under the lea of the most magnificent fells and mountain.

On the western shores lie the three villages. Patterdale and Glenridding lie to the south, with Pooley Bridge at the northern head. Between then they offer shops, cafes and inns, the latter serving excellent local brews.

Boats can be hired to get you out onto the water, alternatively take a trip on one of the threes steamers that cruise the lake.

There are walks to suit all abilities. The eastern shore has no road for much of its length, offering one of the best walks in the National Park. For the more adventurous there are some big fells along with the famous Helvellyn and the precipitous Striding Edge – please do take a good map and observe mountain safety guidelines.

All in all, there is a much to see and do, both around the lake and nearby areas, towns and villages where to get the best from your visit it is well worth investing in a few good guides and maps.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Please note there is a refundable £200 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
