Loweswater lodge is close to the entrance of the Neaum Crag Estate.
Set amongst the trees, the lodge has a peaceful area at the front with outside seating. This is a perfect setting to relax.
Inside the lodge there is a double, twin and a bunk bedroom. The lounge is open plan extending into the kitchen and dining area. Loweswater provides a cosy accommodation for a family holiday. Wifi is not yet available but will be installed at the end of this season. Pets are not allowed in this property, so is pet free for those who suffer from allergies. Parking is available with this lodge.
Loweswater includes a pass to the swimming pool facility (open from March the 1st to November the 12th), which includes a sauna, table tennis, additional wifi and a general place to relax. This is located in the centre of the estate after Loweswater, and with the speed restriction on site, the estate provides a wonderful safe haven for children to explore.
Neaum Crag is handy for access to the Langdale valley, with Chesters Café and the Talbot Bar close by at Skelwith Bridge, and Ambleside only a few miles away.
A Woodland Delight
A public footpath runs from the Western end of the pool building down between the pitched chalet roofes to Skelwith Bridge. At Skelwith Bridge is a hotel, slate galleries with products for sale and Chesters Café. There is an easy pleasant path alongside the river Brathay up to Elterwater. Above the pool building a public footpath runs up the steep one way hill and on up the drive to the large overflow car park at the top of the estate. It then follows the same line up through the larch plantation to exit the estate through a gate in the wall. Loughrigg Tarn and Loughrigg Fell can be seen to the right from this point.
The woodland is protected by a tree preservation order and the bird life is abundant. Red Squirrels can be spotted, roe deer, and occasionally red deer, wander at will through the grounds, though they are rarely seen in summer when the vegetation is high, and badgers snuffle around in the small hours.
