Loweswater. One of the three most western lakes set in the Vale of Lorton.
Visitors will find that Loweswater is a location far removed from the “hurly-burly” of every-day life. It is only 1 mile long, ½ a mile wide, and 60 feet deep with easy access points to the level footpath around the waters. Above and around, the fells offer several categories of walks from where you will be rewarded with some of the most stunning views in the western fringes.
It is an area often combined with visits to the neighbouring Buttermere and Crummock Water by walkers, cyclists and anglers alike.
Motorists are able to approach from either Cockermouth, or Keswick through the scenic Borrowdale Valley.
A summer bus service operates from Whitehaven, Maryport, Cockermouth and Keswick.
N.B. Summer service is either Easter-September, or, July-August.
