About Loweswater

This is the last lake in the North-West of the Lake District National Park, beyond this Lakeland proper begins to end and it is precisely from the Cockermouth and Cleator Moor end that the approach to Loweswater is more interesting, showing the defining change to the character of the countryside.

Loweswater is centred in a landscape of grandeur, it is surrounded by Mellbreak Fell, Carling Knott Fell and Burnbank Fell, all excellent climbing and walking country giving views of a mountainous landscape reflected in sun-kissed pewter waters. To the west of the landscape lies the coast lined with small seaside resorts and the larger Maryport, Workington and Whitehaven, whilst next to the lake is Crummock Water which has the beautiful Buttermere Pass at its southern tip.

The hamlet of Loweswater is scattered between the lake and Crummock Water, here visitors will find typical Lakeland properties, many of which are attractive small hotels, guest house's and individual homes offering friendly bed and breakfast accommodation. There is also a church built in 1827, this stands on the spot of an earlier church, and next to this is the Kirkstile Inn with its award winning microbrewery.

Mostly this is a lonely, sparsely populated area, but in the summer it is crammed with fell walkers and summer visitors. It is an idyllic spot to visit at any time of year, with wonderful vista's of hills, green fields and rivers.
