Lowfield House has been in the same family ownership for 3 generations and has been fully restored and modernised to provide fantastic accommodation for special occasions and extended family holidays in breath-taking surroundings.
The living accommodation comprises of bright and spacious living/dining room, welcoming fire and large screen TV, a family friendly large kitchen, a cosy sitting room which offers a place to retreat. The staircase rises to the first floor where there is a snug which allows you to relax. There is a choice of five bedrooms all with en-suite facilities, two with Juliet balconies and one with a feature roll top bath. A large patio wraps around the house and from here the view at the rear of the property is amazing. Take it all in whilst relaxing in the hot tub.
With its amazing location and stunning views the house provides easy access to walks straight from the door, mountain biking, and water sports. The village pub (The Three Shires) is just a few minutes walk away, and there is easy access to Elterwater, Grasmere, Coniston and Ambleside which offer a great choice of restaurants, cosy pubs and local shops.
A walk through the property:
Lowfield House is an impressive property. Park on the drive, walk round to the rear of the house, pausing to take in the beautiful view. The front door opens into the hallway with access to the open plan ground floor area with huge windows. Stairs lead to the lower floor, then also to the first, second and third floor bedrooms. The hallway running through the ground floor has slate flooring with underfloor heating and links the social spaces on all levels.
The large lounge/dining room is bright and airy, with the lovely views perfectly framed by the two sets of French doors and bay window. Comfortable sofas and footstools are arranged around the feature fireplace allowing guests to relax in front of the large screen TV and cosy fire and take in the views. The lounge is complemented by a welcoming living/day room on the lower level with additional TV and sofas. The large dining table plays host to everything from family friendly breakfasts to special celebration dinners with family and friends. French doors open from here to the rear terrace and garden where you will find the hot tub and loungers. The large kitchen, again benefiting from the spectacular view has French doors which open out onto the terrace. The high quality fitted kitchen, with quartz work tops and breakfast bar with a couple of chairs is fitted with a six ring gas hob, electric double oven, large fridge, under counter freezer, separate wine fridge, Magimix coffee making machine and dishwasher all of which are complemented by a large range of crockery, utensils, glass ware and cooking equipment.
Across the hall is a cloakroom with WC, vanity unit and sink. On the lower floor is the utility room equipped with washing machine and tumble drier. Take the stairs to a landing where a small snug area is located with a comfortable sofa. This landing links the first of five bedrooms, all but one benefit from expansive views across the valley. This bedroom has a super king size bed with a Juliet Balcony and incorporates a dressing area and a large en-suite shower room with basin and WC. Stairs lead to a further three bedrooms. The first of these has views to the rear and has large twin beds with a generous sized en-suite bathroom with roll top bath, walk in shower, WC and basin. The second has a king size bed with large en-suite shower room, WC and basin. The final bedroom on this floor has a vaulted ceiling and a super king size bed. It features the bathroom facilities within the room where you can relax in the roll top bath after your days walk or activities. A Juliet balcony allows you to open the glass door to take in the view. A few stairs take you to the final bedroom which is presented as large twin room with en-suite, compromising corner shower, WC and basin. Velux windows provide the view.
Outside the property is a large mature garden to the front and rear of the property. At the rear is a lovely lawned area and a large terrace with garden furniture. A great place to have breakfast in the morning on a sunny day or indeed any time. The terrace leads you to the hot tub, a real luxury in the garden and a must for those warm summer days not to mention a glass or two in the evening gazing at the stars – the perfect antidote after a long walk! There is a gas BBQ on the terrace for guests to use on the warm summer nights. The garden to the front includes lawn, and in the summer a wild meadow of grasses and flowers. Private parking is available for five cars on the driveway and two electric car charge points.
Little Langdale is a stunning location under the Lingmoor Fells and offers an air of escape that’s hard to beat. With a blissfully remote feel, this area is a haven for walkers and provides access to many of the Lake District’s most famous routes. There are several Lakeland pubs within walking distance in the Great Langdale Valley as well as the Langdale Estate Hotel, Spa and restaurant, and the excellent Three Shires Inn is just a few minutes walk from this fabulous holiday cottage, arguable the best property in Little Langdale.
When you wish to head out and explore the rest of the Lakes, pass pretty little Elterwater on your way to Skelwith Bridge and the A593. From here, head south to Coniston, north to Grasmere or east to well-served Ambleside and the A591 – the main route through the Lakes. At the head of Little Lansdale you have Wrynose Pass which takes you westwards to Eskdale and Ravenglass via Hardknott pass (the steepest road in England and not for the faint-hearted driver or indeed cyclist)
This property features sensor bollards upon entering. Please ensure the key fob is kept with the property keys at all times. If lost you will be left liable to pay for a replacement.
